Bleed Esports Announces Its Complete Roster for 2024 Season
Organizations and teams have been actively making roster changes to find the best composition for their Dota 2 lineups. On 8th January, Singaporean esports organization Bleed Esports announced Rafli "Mikoto" Fathur Rahman and Wilson "poloson" Koh as its final players for the 2024 competitive season right ahead of the Dreamleague Season 22 open qualifiers.
The team was notably lacking a midlaner and position five support after Teng "Kordan" Tjin Yao left for Team Secret and Tommy "Taiga" Le left the team after a brief period of joining.
Bleed Esports Will Compete In DreamLeague Season 22
“New blood, new faces, please welcome @mikoto347 And @polosonn! Get ready for a wild ride! See you at DreamLeague qualifiers!,” the organization wrote on X, welcoming its two new players and also confirming its participation at the DreamLeague Season 22 Southeast Asia open qualifiers. The qualifiers are scheduled to kick off on 9th January.
The Bleed Esports 2024 Dota 2 roster is now as follows:
Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong
Rafli "Mikoto" Fathur Rahman
Natthaphon "Masaros" Ouanphakdee
Djardel "DJ" Mampusti
Wilson "poloson" Koh
The organization brought in former Talon Esports player, Mikoto, who is sure to bring along a wealth of experience to the team. Having played in some major tournaments and securing commendable standings, midlaner Mikoto means business. He is often regarded as one of the finest players from Southeast Asia.
He had notably been a free agent after Talon Esports released its Dota 2 roster following its disappointing run at The International 2023, but his previous achievements with the team were no small feat. Mikoto and Talon secured third position at the Lima Major 2023, Riyadh Masters 2023 and even won the DPC SEA 2023 Tour 2: Division I and BTS Pro Series Season 14: Southeast Asia in 2023.
However, poloson who last played for Myth Avenue Gaming, has little experience in the Tier 1 scene even though he was part of some iconic teams such as Scythe Gaming, Nigma Galaxy SEA, Invictus Gaming, and Team SMG. Despite having little experience in the Tier 1 scene, poloson has been a professional player since 2014 and can contribute significantly to Bleed Esports, thanks to his long-term understanding of the game.
The roster now features three TI participants in JaCkky, Mikoto, and DJ. It would be interesting to see how Bleed Esports synergizes together and if it can achieve new heights. Stay tuned as we follow the journey of teams through the DreamLeague Season 22.
