Ninjaboogie returns to Mineski-Dota

6th man for the MPGL finals this Saturday

The first move of the post-#RoadToTI6 Mineski.Sports5 squad has arrived.

As we count down the days until the finals of the Mineski Pro-Gaming League, the teams have begun to lock in their lineups for this Saturday's showdown. In an interesting turn of events, Mski.Sports5 manager Yamyam Villanueva Yui has confirmed with the marshals from the Mineski-Events Team that seasoned veteran Michael 'Ninjaboogie' Ross will be officially part of their finals lineup as the team's 6th man.

Older fans will know that this is not Ninjaboogie's first stint with Mineski-Dota, as he was once part of the team back in 2009, when he was known as Vigass, a clear tribute to Russia's Ivan 'Vigoss' Shinkarev, perhaps the best ganker in DotA back in the day.

Ninjaboogie's vocal style of leadership is expected to do wonders for the team, especially as they continue to rebuild for the 2016-2017 season.

Meanwhile, rumors are abound that Singaporean carry superstar Galvin Kang 'Meracle' Jian Wen is potentially joining the team, especially as he's been spotted standing in for them in their recent matches at the Mr. Cat Invitational, although Yam has yet to confirm anything regarding these rumors.
