Team Adroit ceases operations, releases Dota 2 roster

A standout Southeast Asian Dota 2 organization is closing its doors.

Team Adroit has announced that it is ceasing operations just a year and a half after opening. The organization is releasing the entirety of its Dota 2 team and laying off its organizational staff. The news was announced on Facebook.

"It is with a heavy heart that we share to the community that we have released our Dota 2 roster and all of our support staff as we cease all operations for Adroit Esports...All things, big or small, come to an end. Sacrifices were made by everyone on the team to stay afloat but the pandemic situation has led us to the inevitable,” the organization said in a statement.

Adroit’s roster included the following players:

  1. Justine Ryan Evangelista "Tino" Grimaldo
  2. Mc Nicholson "Mac" Villanueva
  3. Nikko "Nikko" Bilocura
  4. Marvin "Boombacs" Rushton
  5. Bryle "cml" Alviso

Team Adroit’s closure unsurprising after roster woes

In a different timeline, Team Adroit may have established itself as a top Dota 2 organization in 2020. Competing in a crowded Southeast Asian field, Adroit surprised fans by qualifying for two Dota Pro Circuit majors including the ESL One Los Angeles Major which saw the team upstage TNC Predator. The online league portion of the season saw the team stay competitive for a time, but decline in the summer changes to its roster.

It is unclear whether these poor results led to the organization’s disbandment, but even successful squads are encountering serious difficulties right now.

The biggest example of this in Southeast Asia is Geek Fam. The organization’s star-studded lineup established itself as one of the region’s best, but released its entire roster in September.

Earlier in the year, Chaos Esports Club preemptively released its Dota 2 roster due to problems with organizing live tournaments. The roster reverted back to its Quincy Crew name, and has since established itself as one of the world’s best teams despite being without a formal sponsor. The list of organizations that have divested from Dota 2 in recent months includes Furia Esports, ForZe, Keen Gaming, and Cloud9.

It is unclear whether the former Adroit roster will continue competing together, or if they will dissolve entirely and look for other opportunities.
