TNC Predator has just announced that Carlo 'Kuku' Palad and Nico 'Eyyou' Barcelon have departed from its Dota 2 roster. In August, Kuku tweeted that he was looking for a team which led to speculation about him parting ways with TNC. Days later he stated that he was just trolling with that tweet. However, now it seems like he wasn't joking after all.

The organization's CEO has put out a special video message for the duo as well.

The rumour that Kpii is likely to join TNC is now looking like it could be more than just speculation as both Kpii and Kuku are 3 position players.

Kuku has been with TNC since 2016 and this departure marks a landmark moment in the Filipino Dota 2 circuit. Eyyou has had multiple stints with the team but has been a part of their roster since 2018.

TNC finished at the 9th - 12th position at The International 9. Many expected them to perform significantly better with Heen coaching the roster. With the first qualifiers of the new season of the DPC set to kick off in early October, the fate of Kuku and Eyyou should be revealed within the coming few weeks.
