The members of Team Admiral come from a variety of past teams, but many of them have been down similar paths in recent months. Kim Villafuerte 'Gabbi' Santos and Ralph Richard 'RR' Peñano most recently played for Execration, while Gabbi, Armel Paul 'Armel' Tabios and Marvin 'Boomy' Rushton were all teammates on Clutch Gamers earlier, in mid-2017.
DeMoN is making his return to SEA Dota 2 after about a year, his last stint being just two months with TNC Predator during which he helped the team take 7th-8th at The International 2016 followed by a couple months with Fnatic. Since then, he's bounced around several teams in NA and EU and became teamless when as a result of Digital Chaos* falling apart late last year.
Since none of the players on Team Admiral have scored any Qualifying Points yet, this team are unlikely to earn enough in the next few months to guarantee an invite to TI8. However we shouldn't forget that points aren't everything - there are always TI Qualifiers. If this squad mesh well, they'll likely be one of the top contenders in Southeast Asia in the coming months with a strong chance of nabbing a spot in Seattle.
