iceiceice expressed his displeasure with TNC Predator's roster changes in a Twitch livestream on March 5, 2021.
According to him, TNC had made a "huge mistake" by releasing kpii though he did not have much to say about the release of Febby.
iceiceice also stated that removing March, who was released by TNC in September 2020, was stupid and the organization' "worst mistake."

Iceiceice, in a Twitch livestream from earlier today on March 5, 2021, put forward his opinions regarding TNC Predator’s recent roster changes. According to Daryl Koh "iceiceice" Pei Xiang, “kicking” Damien "kpii" Chok recently was a “huge mistake” by TNC though he did not have much to say in Kim "Febby" Yong-min’s case. The EG offlaner also went on to say that removing Park "March" Tae-won, who was released from the roster in September 2020, was the Filipino’s organization’s “worst mistake.” This statement by iceiceice came before TNC had announced the recruitment of Filipino players, Bok and Boomy, as the replacement of kpii and Febby.

Iceiceice puts forward his opinion regarding kpii and March’s release from TNC Predator

Iceiceice not only was perplexed and expressed his displeasure with the release of kpii from TNC’s squad but also stated that March’s departure was “stupid.”

“Oh man, TNC actually kicked kpii. Why would they kick kpii? TNC is stupid man. (laughs) It’s like no other way to put it. I mean it’s not my team. I have no idea what it is like internally but kicking kpii man. I don’t know about Febby, but I think kicking kpii is definitely a huge mistake. I would say kicking March was the worst mistake. Kicking kpii is like an even bigger mistake... No... It is still big.

Ping issues? It is COVID though. I mean we are in the middle of a pandemic. I feel like sometimes, teams should just make do with what they can.

The Singaporean player also said that despite knowing who the two latest additions to the Filipino organization were, he was unsure if they were equally good replacements. 

“But yeah, I still do not understand why you would kick kpii and get like. I already do know who the two new players are, I am not sure if they announced it, but you kick kpii for like a bad player, that is the worst right. Maybe he is not bad, maybe I am wrong with the supposition - how good or bad the guys are, but I am pretty sure kpii is good. I am a big kpii fan dude.”


TNC Predator had removed March in a very surprising move in September 2020 after he had served as the team’s captain for a year and led them to their first and only DPC Major triumph at the MDL Chengdu Major in November 2019. On March 3, 2021, the organization then removed offlaner, kpii and support/captain Febby after they failed to qualify for the Singapore Major.
