It took three months for Adroit Esports to find an offlane player after they released Jun “Bok” Kanehara from the team.
Bok was the first to be replaced on the Adroit line-up this year, but after his release, the organization had a hard time finding a replacement. Prince Vince “Bensoy” Enrique was welcomed aboard, but his stint lasted only a couple of months and after early eliminations at BTS Pro Series Season 2, OMEGA League and ESL One Thailand, he was let go. Following his departure, Adroit went on a trial period with the former T1 captain, Lee “Forev” Sang-don. Unfortunately for both parts, the testing period didn’t go well.
According to Forev, who is now looking for a stack to play in the upcoming Dota Summit 13, the rest of the players felt that the language barrier is too big for them to collaborate with him.
While Forev is still a free agent, Adroit signed Nikko “Nikko” Bilocura to complete a full Filipino roster.
Adroit esports line-up from position 1 to 5:
- Justine Ryan “Tino” Grimaldo
- McNicholson “Mac” Villanueva
- Nikko “Nikko” Bilocura
- Marvin “Boomy” Rushton
- Bryle “cml” Alvizo
Nikko was signed from Zerothreetwo Dota, Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross’ latest project , where he actually played in the mid lane. Bok is now the offlane player of 032 and both teams are most likely to clash in the Dota Summit 13 set to begin next week, on the 21st.
