The post TI9 shuffle has started taking shape. There are a lot of rumours out there but one of the first ones that can be confirmed is that Michael ‘ninjaboogie’ Ross will be parting ways with the Filipino team, Mineski. The information was revealed by ninjaboogie on his Facebook page when he addresses the season, thanked a few people who helped him out and at the end, mentioned he was looking for a team.
Ninjaboogie started the season with TNC, but when things didn’t really go as planned, he left the organization. Mineski was the team with which he played in the 2017-2018 DPC season and won the DAC 2018 Major. As fate would have it, Mineski would be the one which took him to TI9 as well! Quite unexpectedly, the team made it out of the group stages, survived the best of 1 elimination game againist a resurgent Na’Vi before playing the game of their lives to give Team Secret a scare in the lower bracket. They lost 2-1 to Secret but earned the respect of the entire community.
Mineski has not released any statement, so it is unknown on whether they will be releasing the entire roster or it is just ninjaboogie that is parting ways with them. Currently, their roster still has-
- Nikolay ‘Nikobabay’ Nikolov
- Kam Boon ‘Moon’ Seng
- Damien ‘kpii’ Chok
- Ryan Jay ‘Bimbo’ Qui
However, Nikobaby did post ‘LFT’ on his Twitter accound, which might be a hint that the entire roster may be on its way out.
