Former Adroit Esports lineup starts the year reunited at Omega Esports

Southeast Asia closed qualifiers for the first season of Dota Pro Circuit regional leagues reveal a few new competitors entering the scene. Omega Esports is one of the newest organizations to sign a Dota 2 team for the new year.

With rosters in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Tekken 7, Omega Esports are making their entrance into the Dota 2 world by signing the former Adroit Esports players and will start their adventure in the closed qualifiers for the Southeast Asia Regional League Season 1.

Omega Esports roster from position 1 to 5:

  • Justine “Tino” Grimaldo
  • Mc Nicholson “Mac” Villanueva
  • Jun “Bok” Kanehara
  • Marvin “Boombacs” Rushton
  • Bryle “cml” Alviso

During the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit all five players fought for Adroit Esports. They started the previous season by making a splash in the region claiming a spot at two Majors. They got to attend the MDL Chengdu Major, but unfortunately they’ve never been able to showcase their skills at the ESL One Los Angeles Major as the tournament was the first one on the long list of DPC events canceled through 2020.

Regardless of the many difficulties brought by the pandemic, Adroit fought through the online season of 2020 and tried to maintain a full operation roster up until mid-November when the organization was forced to cease all operations citing financial difficulties.

When Adroit Esports closed its doors, Jun “Bok” Kanehara was already playing for Michael “ninjaboogie” Ross Jr ‘s team Zerothreetwo Dota (032). However, the roster was short lived and by the end of November the line-up disbanded. With all his former teammates from Adroit, reuniting at Omega Esports, Bok has also joined in at the beginning of the year and will look forward to a fresh start in the Dota Pro Circuit.

Omega Esports received an invite to the closed qualifiers for SEA regional league and will fight starting tomorrow, January 4 on for a spot into the Upper Division.
