T1 signs first full Dota 2 roster, sets sights on Epicenter Major
T1 has officially settled on a Dota 2 roster after six disastrous months in the game.
That team consists of the following players:
- Dominik "Black^" Reitmeier
- Muhammad "inYourdreaM" Rizky
- Lee "Forev" Sang-don
- Tri "Jhocam" Kuncoro
- Yixaun "xuan" Guo
T1's Dota 2 roster will also work alongside League of Legends coach Choi "cCarter" Byoung-hoon, and will be coached by former MVP Phoenix player Pyo "MP" No-a.
T1 hopes Forev and Black^ lead team to Epicenter Major
Following The International 2019, the iconic League of Legends organization expanded into Dota 2. The initial plan was to sign Forev and build a Korean-majority roster around him.
The team has taken in and released a number of players in the months since, ranging from Dota 2 rookies to accomplished veterans such as Johan "pieliedie" Åström and Kim "Febby" Yong-min. None of the teams have had even a modest level of success thus far.
The team that competed in the ESL One Los Angeles southeast Asian open qualifier underwhelmed, but did score a number of wins. The team missed out on making the regional qualifiers by a hair after being defeated by Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung's IO Dota2. That was apparently enough to convince T1 to sign the team to a more long-term deal.
T1’s official lineup will surely vie for a spot at the EPICENTER Major 2020. They will once again be forced to compete in the SEA open qualifiers, which will be a tough journey for the team unless it gels quickly.
