Published On: 
  • Midlaner Karl, who reached 11K MMR just days ago, has been added to the T1 roster.
  • This is T1's second major roster update after March was added to the squad as a head coach on October 26.
  • Karl joined Zerothreetwo Dota on October 9, but without playing even a single official match for the team, he has now moved to T1.

After announcing the addition of veteran, Park "March" Tae-won as a coach on October 26, T1 has now signed talented Filipino player, Karl "Karl" Jayme to their squad. Karl, who became only the 6th player to reach the milestone of 11K MMR in early October will be joining the Korean organization and will possibly play the mid role. This is quite a surprising move considering the fact that the Filipino midlaner had just joined Zerothreetwo Dota (032) just twenty days ago and has yet to play an official game for the Cebu based organization.

T1 welcomed Karl to the squad through a tweet.

It looks like a superstar roster is on the horizon for T1, as they have successively added two renowned players of the SEA region. On October 26, T1 overwhelmed everybody by adding March as a coach and now a prodigy, a highly-skilled midlaner, Karl has been included in the squad.

What comes as a surprise is the fact that Karl recently joined Zerothreetwo Dota on 9 October and did not play even a single official match for the team before getting signed by T1 just 2- days later. Since Karl’s inclusion to the roster, Zerothreetwo Dota only played in the DOTA Summit Online 13: Southeast Asia Open Qualifier on October 17 but LJSL played the qualifiers instead of Karl.

Before this, Karl played for Geek Fam for a year where he enjoyed considerable success, having many top 3 finishes. The most significant achievement would be the first place finish at ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League where they beat Fnatic 3-1 in the Grand finals to take the lion’s share of $40,000.

T1’s current roster officially comprises of Karl, inYourdreaM, Sam_H, Poloson and Jhocam but according to Valve’s Minor/Major Registration page, inYourdreaM and Poloson had been removed from the squad weeks ago.

So, T1 is likely going to add a safelaner and a hard support player who can probably take the captain duties from Poloson.

Taking into account the team’s social media handles as well as the Valve Dota 2 Majors and Minor’s registration page, T1’s current roster is:

  1. TBD
  2. Karl "Karl" Jayme
  3. Samson Solomon Enojosa "Sam_H" Hidalgo
  4. Tri "Jhocam" Kuncoro
  5. TBD
  6. Park "March" Tae-won (Coach)

T1 has already added two famed players in the region in just three days so one can expect some exciting names being added to the menu in the next couple of weeks.
