After a number of player additions and removals over the last couple of months, T1 has announced yet another Dota 2 roster. With T1’s latest inclusion in the form of Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong and Kenny "Xepher" Deom, T1 has put together another interesting mix of talent, experience and skill.
Xepher And JaCkky Finalize T1’s Roster
T1 announced the addition of Xepher and JaCkky as their latest roster change.
Xepher joins the Korean organization of T1 as a position 4 player after serving Geek Fam for a year. Geek Fam disbanded its roster in early September 2020 due to the indefinite delay of TI10 and Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) as well as difficulties due to the ongoing pandemic. After that, Xepher played for the temporary Among Us stack alongside former teammate Kuku at DOTA Summit 13:SEA where they came second.
Xepher is one of the most dependable position 4 players who can certainly take up the role of captain for the team.
JaCkky, on the other hand, joined Motivate.Trust Gaming at the start of 2020 and the team’s performance grew better by leaps and bounds over the months. They were being hailed as the team to beat after winning back to back major tournaments in the form of BTS Pro Series 3 and DOTA Summit 13. However, on November 24, Motivate.Trust Gaming parted ways with their offlaner, Masaros and carry, JaCkky.
JaCkky who is regarded as a talented up and coming player is now set to play for T1 under the mentorship of an experienced squad and coach.
T1’s Final Roster:
- Souliya “JaCkky” Khoomphetsavong
- Karl “Karl” Jayme
- Samson “Sam_H” Hidalgo
- Kenny “Xepher” Deo
- Wilson “Poloson” Koh Chin Wei
- Park “March” Tae-won (Coach)
T1 now has a talented core duo of 11K MMR player, Karl and in-form, JaCkky and an experienced trio in the form of Sam_H, Xepher and Poloson. In addition, the roster will be under the guidance of one of the most famed and accomplished players in SEA, March. Certainly, a strong roster has been put together by T1 who have the potential to go big if they get well together.
No SEA tournaments are currently taking place but one can expect a couple of them popping up in December. However, T1’s primary goal of putting up this roster will be to perform strongly at DPC 2021 which is set to begin on January 18, 2021, as communicated by Valve.
