  • T1 releases carry/midlaner, inYourdreaM, position 4, Jhocam and coach,MP from the team.
  • This is yet another roster change from the team after veteran March was added as a head coach and 11K MMR player, Karl was added as a midlaner in October 2020.
  • T1 is now left down to three players which includes Karl, Sam_H and Poloson.

The SEA Dota 2 scene does not seem to take a chill pill in regards to roster changes as we now witness another team in the region releasing some of its players. Korean organization, T1, has released Muhammad "inYourdreaM" Rizky and Tri "Jhocam" Kuncoro. Also, the organization has let go of its Pyo "MP" No-a which now puts all the coaching commitments of the team on March’s shoulders who was recently added to the team as a head coach.

T1 Releases inYourdreaM, Jhocam and Coach MP

T1 announced the departure of their carry player/midlaner, inYourdreaM, soft support player, Jhocam, and coach, MP, through a tweet.

All three members, MP,  inYourdreaM and Jhocam joined the organization in March 2020 and served nearly nine months with the team. The team’s performance continued to stay static and they could not deliver a single top 3 place finish in major tournaments.

T1’s last tournament was ESL One Thailand where they secured the 5-6th position before they stopped participating. This called for more roster changes in the times to come and at the end of October 2020, the organization baffled everybody as they picked up veteran March as a head coach. Their other roster change was equally impressive as they added 11K MMR Fillipino player, Karl.

While the departure of inYourdreaM had been speculated for a long time since he joined the Among Us V2 stack, Jhocam’s release from the squad comes as an overwhelming surprise. According to a roster change as per Dota 2 Majors and Minors Registration page, inYourdreaM and Poloson had been removed from the squad of T1 at the beginning of October. While inYourdreaM accordingly goes out, Poloson seems to be staying with the organization and Jhocam is officially out. Now, T1 is potentially looking for a carry and a position 4 player.

T1’s Roster after this update:

  1. TBD
  2. Karl "Karl" Jayme
  3. Samson Solomon Enojosa "Sam_H" Hidalgo
  4. TBD
  5. Wilson "Poloson" Koh Chin Wei
  6. Park "March" Tae-won (Coach)

What more roster changes and player acquisition thoughts T1 has up their sleeves, only time can tell. If we talk about the host of free agents that exist in Dota 2 professional space currently, especially SEA, T1 can certainly put together a strong roster under March’s supervision.
