Team Roster:

  • Balaji 'Blizzard' Ramnarayan
  • Raunak 'Crowley' Sen
  • Aj 'xRag' Casañada
  • Joshua 'Owa' Dela Serna
  • Moa 'No_chanc3' Ejaz

The Mumbai-based team has only had minor changes for the latter part of 2017 and the results show as they dominated the India Qualifiers of the ROG APAC. This mix of old and new players could pull off some upsets if underestimated by their competition.

xRag has been a top tier player in the Australian scene for a while now, having played for teams such as Can’t Say Wips and Da Teletubbies (DTT). While known to be a mid lane maestro in the pub scene, the Australia-born Filipino has been switching it up for Signify with Dark Seer, Earth Spirit, and Mirana recently.

They recently swapped out young star Skemberlulu for another rising talent in Blizzard. Not much is known about Blizzard outside of India but he seems to favor aggressive carries over the last month. His two games with Monkey King was impressive: he posted 24.50 KDA and a 100% win rate. In the ASUS ROG Masters 2017 APAC Finals, he faces much stiffer competition and it will be interesting to watch him in his first big international event.

Joining them is Crowley, one of the most veteran figures in the Indian Dota scene. He has been playing since Dota 1 and was even recently part of Entity Gaming before joining Signify. While he may not be a young a gun anymore, he can still light up the midlane with his Shadow Fiend and Templar Assassin.

On October 26-29,Signfy will be at the SMX Convention to battle against Asia Pacific’s best Dota 2 teams for the ASUS ROG Masters 2017 APAC Finals. You can catch them live and see if the two nations are indeed a match made in heaven.

The ASUS ROG Masters 2017 APAC Regional Qualifiers will be on October 26-29 at SMX Convention Center. Admission is free.
