TNC Predator has parted ways with Marc Polo "Raven" Fausto, as well as Samson "SamH" Hidalgo, the team announced earlier today.
TNC Predator’s announcement was brief and gave a polite farewell. The future plans for both Raven and SamH are currently unknown. Neither player has commented yet on their departure from TNC.
As two-fourths of TNC’s core quartet for two years, SamH and Raven established themselves as Filipino Dota 2 legends, sticking with the TNC organization for over 2 years and playing 635, 618 official matches respectively. They’ve won the WESG 2016 with TNC and had several other Top 4 finishes in Premier LAN events. However, the highlight of their careers will still be that amazing performance in The International 6 which knocked out OG.
While Raven and SamH have both left the team, TNC Predator confirmed that Carlo "Kuku" Palad, Armel Paul "Armel" Tabios, and Timothy John "Tims" Randrup have all re-signed with the SEA team for the upcoming season.
Although TNC Predator hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the replacements of Raven and SamH. Our sources have suggested that Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte and Michael "ninjaboogie" Ross Jr. will be the replacements coming into this squad.
