Meracle joins Singaporean team
This was a tough defeat for the organization, which was able to qualify for The International. Overall iG.V had a disappointing year in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit - they were not able to gain a single point and only attended one Major all season long - Major.
After this disappointmenting result, hard carry Meracle decided to split up from Su 'super' Peng and his other Chinese teammates.
back to my roots— Meracle (@Meracleeeeee) 6. Juli 2018
The position 1 player will go back to the roots and join the all-Singaporean Dota 2 roster of Resurgence. As the new captain of the team, he published an official statement:
Galvin 'Meracle-' Kang Jian WenI feel excited about being able to play under Resurgence as being able to play under a Singapore organization, with my Singaporean teammates and friends, has been something I've been wanting to do for a while, and something I feel the most comfortable with. Like most teams out there, I hope to be able to compete and win TI one day. We've just come together quite recently after not playing with each other for a while so it'll take quite some time, but we're definitely looking forward to getting prepared to play in the next DPC season. -
The coach of the team is not unknown to the Dota 2 community: Nicholas 'xFreedom' Lim is an experienced pro who already played alongside Daryl Koh 'iceiceice' Pei Xiang and Jonathan 'Loda' Berg in Zenith*. Back then, the squad reached top six at The International 2012 but fell to DK*.
Nicholas 'xFreedom' LimI aim to bring this team together with my past experiences. As the saying goes, each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and keep it lit. I hope this team to achieve the results that Zenith and Faceless did in their primetime or even better. Knowing how hungry these players are to win, I feel this roster has the potential to put the Singapore flag on the map for Dota 2 esports. -
xFreedom and Meracle- will join four players, who all played for First Departure* before - Meracle's first team in his Dota 2 career. At 17 years old, he was one of the youngest captains in the scene at the time.
