Mineski.Sports5's road to redemption continues, as the team prepares for its first LAN outing of the post-TI6 era.
Earlier today, Singaporean carry Galvin Kang 'Meracle' Jian Wen arrived in the Philippines in order to finalize the terms of his stay with Mineski.Sports5, as well as sign the contract alongside Michael 'Ninjaboogie' Ross. Nb, or Capt`Mike as he was known during his HoN days, is set to share captainship duties alongside the team's chief playmaker Ryan Jay 'Raging-_-Potato' Qui.
Meracle's arrival also marks the beginning of the team's boot camp in preparation for the Southeast Asia Championship by MPGL, which takes place at the Selangor Cyber Games in Malaysia, from September 9 to 11.
Mski.Sports5 is one of two teams that will be representing the Philippines in the 10-team LAN two weeks from now, with the other being Execration.
The team's meeting also revealed their new offlaner as Ralph Richard 'RR' Peñano, who they quickly picked up shortly after the support-turned-offlaner was booted from Execration upon their return from their TI6 Wildcard stin in Seattle.
One last addition to Mineski-Dota is HappyFeet's former manager Jerry Ocampo, who will be coming in as the Mineski Pro Teams' new life coach, bringing in his experience from HF's golden days.
"We are looking forward to bounce back this season, especially now that we have the whole team staying together to be guided by our new general manager Jerry Ocampo," team manager Yamyam Yui tells Mineski.net. "We will be making further announcements regarding the contracts of our other players; watch out for our future surprises."
The team looks to open their new season with a bang as they aim for gold in Malaysia this September.
