T1 opløser hold ved Dota 2S0d
Esports organization T1 , playing in Southeast Asia, announced the dissolution of the Dota 2 team. The corresponding statement appeared on the social networks of the club.
The line-up for The International 2022 did not live up to the organization's expectations. On August 16th, T1 announced that two OG legends, two-time world champions Anathan 'ana' Pham and Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen, are joining the roster. If the former became part of the team on a permanent basis, then the Finnish esportsman had the status of stand-in.
The first problems began at the stage of regional qualifiers. T1 did not cope with Polaris Esports in the lower bracket final, but that was enough to qualify for the Last Chance Qualifier. In Singapore, the team stopped at 5-6th place and missed the World Championship this year.
As for the rest of the roster, Carlo 'Kuku' Palad and Matthew 'Whitemon' Filemon have been playing in T1 since January 2021. A veteran of the team can be called Kenny 'Xepher' Deo, who joined the Asian club in November 2020. The main achievements of this T1 roster are 3rd place at WePlay AniMajor, which brought the club $75,000, as well as 7-8th place at The International 10. The players earned $1,000,500 for their performance. We previously reported that Bleed eSports plans to buy a DPC slot from T1.
The former T1 line-up is shown below:
Recall that The International 2022 was held in Singapore from October 15 to 30 of this year. The venues were Suntec Singapore and Singapore Indoor Stadium. 20 teams competed for a prize pool of $18,930,775. Tundra Esports became the world champions, earning $8,518,822.
