Forev, Mikoto, and Ninjaboogie to play in the open qualifiers of BTS Pro Series S8
TOLONG HAMBA's roster for the BTS Pro Series S8: SEA open qualifier is as follows:
Daniel "Ghost" Chan Kok Hong
Rafli Fathur "Mikoto" Rahman
Lee "Forev" Sang-don
Brizio Adi "Hyde" Putra
Michael "ninjaboogie" Ross Jr.
Ghost - Ghost is a Malaysian carry player who last played for Team Mystery. In season 2 of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021, the team could not secure a strong result in the Lower Division. They managed just a seventh place finish, knocking them out from the upcoming DPC season. Ghost had played for Galaxy Racer for around seven months before joining Team Mystery.
Mikoto - Mikoto is an Indonesian midlaner currently playing for BOOM Esports. Mikoto had kept his place despite the team parting with three of its players recently. Whether he has also left now is unknown at present. Boom Esports was relegated to the Lower Division after a lackluster season 2 of the DPC. The team rebounded well in The International 10 (TI10) SEA's qualifier but finished third and did not qualify for TI10.
Forev - Forev is a South Korean offlaner who last played for HOYO in Feb 2021. In the months following that, the veteran has been somewhat inactive, playing only a few tournaments for stacks.
Hyde - Hyde is an Indonesian support player, who last played with BOOM Esports alongside Mikoto. In the recent roster move, he was one of three players who left the squad.
Ninjaboogie - Ninjaboogie is a Filipino/American support player who last played for Team SMG in April 2021. There has been little activity from him in competitive Dota 2 since then.
TOLONG HAMBA has a player mix that includes young players like Ghost and Mikoto and veteran players like Forev and Ninjaboogie, which makes them an interesting team to watch in the open qualifiers.
The BTS Pro Series S8: SEA open qualifier will take place on 4th and 5th Sept 2021, following which two teams will join the eight teams that have been invited directly to the event.
