  • Kuku announced that he is still looking for a new team.
  • His temporary stint with Among Us came to an end after their third place finish in the BTS Pro Series 3: Southeast Asia

After his recent stint with ‘Among Us’ in the BTS Pro Series 3: Southeast Asia, Filipino player, Carlo "Kuku" Palad has just Tweeted that he is looking for a new team ahead of the upcoming season. 

Considering his reputation as one of the finest offlaners in the SEA region, it seems highly likely that he will find a new home before long.

Kuku’s Recent Stints In SEA Teams

When the season started after the conclusion of The International 9, Kuku departed from TNC Predator after a three-year stint with the team. The player was picked up by Geek Fam alongside his long-term friend Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto.

With Geek Fam, Kuku managed to qualify for two minors and one major in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2019-20 season before it was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. The player was forced to leave the team when they disbanded earlier last month.

He stated that he was looking for a team, earlier in September 2020, immediately following his departure from Geek Fam.

Following this, he formed a temporary team alongside Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon, Abed “Abed” Azel L. Yusop, Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong, and Matthew "Whitemon" Filemon.

However, after the stint with Among Us came to an end, it looks like Kuku is once again looking for a new team.

SEA Dota 2 Teams in a Flux

The SEA Dota 2 scene has been undergoing a number of roster changes over the last few weeks. 

  • Teams like Reality Rift and Geek Fam disbanded their Dota 2 rosters due to Valve’s lack of communication regarding the DPC.
  • Fnatic undergoes multiple roster shuffles within a few weeks to renew their roster.
  • TNC Predator was the latest to join this fad after they announced that captain Park "March" Tae-won was going to be departing from the team, earlier today.

Since so many teams are undergoing roster changes, there will likely be plenty of opportunities for Kuku to dive into.

It will be interesting to see which team Kuku picks as his new destination over the next few weeks.

Perhaps a new team could be on the works with so many talented free agents like Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong, Daryl Koh "iceiceice" Pei Xiang, March, Kuku, Matthew "Whitemon" Filemon, Nico "eyyou" Barcelon in the market.
