Geek Fam have announced that Andrei ‘Skemberlu’ Ong will be returning to the team after having left them in March to play for TaskUs Titans. Geek Fam played some of their best Dota with Skemberlu and were consistently making it to the top spots in the SEA Regionals for the DPC events.
Since his departure, their form has declined and Geek Fam will be looking to build their team for the next season. Skemberlu himself didn’t have too much luck with TaskUs Titans and both teams were unable to qualify for the SEA Regionals for TI8.
His arrival probably means that vtFaded will either be moved to the sub role or leave the team, but, no official announcement has been made as of now. Skemberlu previously played in India for Team Signify but it was only a short stint before he moved to the Malaysian org.
