The player reunites with Lee "Forev" Sang-don for the first time since the duo played together for Team Secret in 2016.

Last season, PieLieDie played for Mineski, before departing from the SEA organisation to join Forward Gaming/Newbee just in time to qualify for The International 9. His new teammate, Skadilicious, played for Neon Esports and Lowkey Esports.

The T1 organization announced its Dota 2 division in August 2019, with Forev leading the team. The team picked up a trial squad featuring Forev and

  • Pio “MP” Noah
  • James “XemistrY” Lee
  • Chong “Snow” Mook Ping
  • Nicholas “xFreedom” Calvin Ileto Lim

Following this, the team competed in the VKGAME Battle Of Dawn and Hainan Master Cup tournaments. However, poor performances in these tournaments saw 3 of these players depart from this team.

Now with the addition of the Swede and the Filipino player, the team’s roster will feature:

  • Christian-John "Skadilicious" Abasolo
  • James “XemistrY” Lee
  • Lee "Forev" Sang-don
  • Johan "pieliedie" Åström
