With compLexity Gaming disbanding many were left wondering about where star carry Galvin "Meracle" Kang Jian Wen would move to. Ponder no more.

Meracle will be joining a new stack dubbed Alpha x Hashtag featuring some of the most experienced SEA players out there including Chan "WinteR" Litt Binn, Kim "Velo" Tae-sung and Wilson "Poloson" Koh Chin Wei as well as upcoming Malaysian wonder kid Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang.

The team is expected to have a bootcamp in Thailand and has announced that they will be competing in the first Major/Minor Qualifiers as well as all SEA and Thai tournaments which have no restrictions on the nationality of players.

This partnership between the two Thai organisations: Alpha and Hashtag is already proving to be quite promising. It'll be interesting to see how this relationship pans out in the long run.

This team certainly has the talent and experience to compete at the upper echelons of SEA Dota. However, it is hard to see them progress to Majors/Minors unless they drastically improve their abilities.

The full roster of Alpha X Hashtag is:

  1. Galvin "Meracle" Kang Jian Wen

  2. Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang

  3. Kim "Velo" Tae-sung

  4. Wilson "Poloson" Koh Chin Wei

  5. Chan "WinteR" Litt Binn
