One of the most successful Filipino Dota 2 players in the world, Michael "ninjaboogie" Ross Jr. recently had a stint with Team Adroit. Following this, the player looks to have persuaded two of his Adroit teammates (John Anthony "Natsumi-" Vargas and Jun "Bok" Kanehara) to follow him to his new team, Zerothreetwo Dota 2.

The Zerothreetwo (032) Dota 2 Roster Featuring ninjaboogie, Natsumi- and Bok
The Zerothreetwo Dota 2 roster features a mix of veteran SEA players and new blood making them one of the more exciting teams to watch in the upcoming tournaments.
- The team’s carry and offlaner, Natsumi- and Bok have plenty of experience in the highest tiers of SEA Dota, recently winning the SEA Games 2019 tournament and the ESL Clash of Nations Bangkok 2019.
- Captain ninjaboogie is one of the most accomplished Filipino Dota 2 players in the world, having won a DPC Major (Dota 2 Asia Championship 2018) and lead a relatively underrated Mineski team to an 8th place finish at The International 9.
- Mid player, Nikko “Nikko” Bilocura is an upcoming player who has shown significant promise during his stint in MS Chonburi. Not much is known about position 4 player, Matthew “Matthew” Trinidad.
Zerothreetwo’s statement announcing the team reads:
“Long wait is finally over! Another powerhouse Bisaya team is making its way into the upcoming DPC season. A team composed of a veteran captain, 2 SEA Games Gold Medalist and 2 promising young players. The team is hoping to incorporate the Bisaya passion with high-level plays.”
Zerothreetwo will also be the second major Bisayan squad to come out of the Philippines. The first was Team Adroit.
Hence Zerothreetwo's Dota roster will be:
- Carry: John Anthony “Natsumi-” Vargas
- Mid: Nikko “Nikko” Bilocura
- Offlaner: Jun “Bok” Kanehara
- Soft Support: Matthew “Matthew” Trinidad
- Hard Support: Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross Jr.
It will certainly be interesting to see the joust between Zerothreetwo and the rest of the Dota 2 squads in the region. They certainly have the players to become one of the top teams in the region. Will they live up to their potential?
