The first major roster change in the SEA region after the conclusion of the qualifiers of the first Major/Minor has just taken place.

Adam "Adam/343" Shah is coming back to the SEA region after stints in compLexity Gaming and Royal Never Give Up to join Thailand based team Alpha x Hashtag. He will be replacing popular player Chan "WinteR" Litt Binn and will don the Position-5 hat in this team.

WinteR will switch to a coaching role within this team.

This roster change sees Adam/343 reunite with Galvin "Meracle" Kang Jian Wen with whom he qualified for multiple DPC tournaments as part of compLexity Gaming.

Alpha x Hashtag finished in the last place at the MDL Chengdu Major SEA Closed Qualifiers securing only 2 wins in 8 matches and hence were unable to compete in the Minor Qualifiers. It was clear that a roster shakeup was needed.

Hence the full roster for Alpha x Hashtag is as follows:

  1. Galvin “Meracle” Kang Jian Wen
  2. Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang
  3. Kim “Velo” Tae-sung
  4. Wilson “Poloson” Koh Chin Wei
  5. Adam Shah “343” bin Akhtar Hussein

Coach: Chan “WinteR” Litt Binn


  • Supanut "LionaX" Chow
  • Chaianan "Mikasa" Thawatwong
