The SEA team had just recently announced their new roster after they announced their farewell to Daryl Koh ‘iceiceice‘ Pei Xiang, Michael ‘ninjaboogie‘ Ross and Anucha ‘Jabz‘ Jirawong. The organization has since picked up Damien ‘kpii‘ Chok, Kim ‘Febby’ Yong-min and Thiay ‘March/JT‘ Jun Wen for the upcoming season.
