While the Lima Major has yet to begin, the SEA region has begun its first roster shuffle of the year.
Bleed Esports announced that it has moved its offlane duo of Masaros & Playhard into the inactive roster as it searches for a new offlane duo.
While the team performed well at the start of the SEA DPC, its lackluster performance in the region meant that changes were needed.

Bleed Esports has officially announced that it has moved the offlane duo of Natthaphon "Masaros" Ouanphakdee & Prieme "PlayHard" Banquil into its inactive roster after the 2023 Southeast Asia Dota Pro Circuit (SEA DPC): Winter Tour. The duo were initially signed by Bleed Esports as part of its first Dota 2 iteration after the organization had purchased T1’s slot in the DPC.

While the duo had a good start to the season with three wins in the SEA DPC, the team were unable to compete against the likes of Blacklist International & Execration as the team ultimately finished the Winter Tour in sixth place, barely avoiding relegation.

Bleed Esports to search for new offlane duo

“We'd like to thank Masaros and PH- for their hard work and dedication during their time with us. They will both be moved to our inactive roster and able to explore any opportunities in the upcoming season. Best of luck in your future endeavors!” 🙏 Bleed Esports wrote in its announcement post on Twitter.

Here is Bleed Esports’ current roster following the announcement: 

  1. Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong

  2. Teng "Kordan” Tjin Yao

  3. TBD

  4. TBD

  5. Kim “DuBu” Doo-young

Having only recently entered the Dota 2 competitive scene this year, Bleed Esports meant business as it had recruited the likes of former BOOM Esports’ carry Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong as well up-and-coming talent in Teng "Kordan” Tjin Yao. However despite the acquisition, the team were unable to compete for a spot at the upcoming Lima Major as it had a lackluster performance in the winter tour of the SEA DPC and finishing the first tour in sixth tour, barely avoiding relegation to Division II.

With the Spring Tour expected to become more competitive, the organization knew that it had to undergo changes if it wishes to stay competitive in the region as well as fight for a spot at The International 2023 (TI12). 

However, the team could have a golden opportunity at their hands as they could recruit the former Fnatic offlaner duo of TI finalist Kim “kpii” Sau-Jing & legendary support Djardel “DJ” Mampusti after Fnatic had announced their temporary withdrawal from the scene, which meant that all of Fnatic’s players are currently free agents on the market.
