Tan ‘jjz’ Jia Jun, captain of the team had the following to say about joining Team Flash

 It’s a new experience for my teammates and me, but we feel great about the opportunity to join Team Flash and begin our full-time career in gaming. I think every Dota 2 player has the same dream, to attend TI one day. For now, we are aiming to qualify for the Major & Minor leagues this season because the team is new and we need time to develop ourselves. Big thanks to Team Flash for giving us this lifetime opportunity.


Terence Ting, CEO & Co-founder of Team Flash on entering the Dota 2 scene

We were looking for an opportunity to enter the Dota 2 scene especially after the announcement of the revamped Dota 2 Pro Circuit system. Reverse Heaven was the first team to catch our eye, after beating Fire Dragoon in the MESL Selangor qualifiers. We continued to follow them closely, and they again put up excellent showings at ROG Masters Malaysia and the New Blood Championships. Team Flash believes in grooming new talent instead of going for proven names, and this is a team that can go the distance and establish ourselves as a top contender in Southeast Asia. With the support and infrastructure Team Flash will be providing including a professional gaming incubator, the team will be able to fully focus and elevate their game to the fullest potential. Big thanks to our newest partners, NVIDIA and Orange Esports for making this happen. be able to fully focus and elevate their game to the fullest potential.
