After a disappointing run at the BTS Pro Series 3 where they only managed to secure a 7th-8th place finish, Zerothreetwo (032) is attempting to clean house. The team announced today it was parting ways with mid laner Nikko "Nikko" Bilocura and Position 4 support Matthew "Matt" Trinidad.

Zerothreetwo’s Roster Changes

Nikko served as the primary playmaker for Zerothreetwo in the mid lane role. He joined the team in August 2020, coming from the relatively unknown MS Chonburi team. Although he had shown a lot of promise, it is clear that the player still has a long way to go before matching up against the other talented midlaners that SEA possesses.

Position 4 player, Matthew is also a relative newcomer to the SEA Dota 2 scene who still has some way to go before becoming a permanent fixture in teams like Zerothreetwo.

Zerothreetwo thanked the players for their “time, commitment, and effort” stating that they learnt a lot from each other despite the short stint.

Towards the end of the statement, Zerothreetwo also revealed that they would be announcing their new players later this week.

Zerothreetwo's current roster features:

  • Carry: John Anthony "Natsumi-" Vargas
  • Offlaner: Jun "Bok" Kanehara
  • Position 5: Michael "ninjaboogie" Ross Jr.

It will be interesting to see who Zerothreetwo Dota picks up as replacements for the two players who just departed from the lineup.
