It has only been a few days since LGD Gaming made an announcement stating that the organisation was going to expand by picking up a Southeast Asian Dota 2 team and that they’ll reveal the roster in Manila on November 26th. Many rumours have surfaced since then, speculating on who’ll be leading this roster with names like MidOne, ninjaboogie and even SumaiL being thrown in the mix.

However, it looks like we finally have a solid lead on who might be a part of this roster. Earlier today, Theeban "1437" Sivanathapillai made a post on his Facebook page which indicated that he will be a part of this new LGD Gaming roster.

He states that he is looking for a fluent Mandarin speaker with a full-time job in Manila. An oddly specific requirement. Considering the circumstances, it isn’t too far-fetched to think that 1437 will be a part of LGD.Int and may even be captaining it.

In fact, 1437 already has a history with LGD.int. He played in the earlier version of LGD.Int way back in 2012 and won the GEST Challenge 2012 by beating the main LGD Gaming roster.
