With a team of content creators and social media staff we will look to engage closely with the community so that all our fans can come with us on every step of this journey.”
A few words from our talented roster:
Mikoto: “Talon will be my first international team officially and because this is Talon’s first Dota 2 roster, I hope we can do well for the entire season. I’m also looking forward to playing with the rest of my teammates and achieving great things with Talon.”
Fly: “The Southeast Asian region has always held a special place in my heart, with its passionate fans and raw Dota power. It will be intense, yes, but I am looking forward to competing under a fresh banner and alongside this talented roster. I am excited for a new era of SEA Dota.”
Gabbi: “I'm super excited to play at a globally successful organization like Talon Esports. I will work my hardest to get the best results and represent The Philippines proudly.”
