TNC Predator Dota 2 Team announced that they will be releasing Tims, Armel, Gabbi, Bok and Boomy and that the players will be free agents effective September 15.

In a Facebook post, the Dota 2 organization said that despite of parting ways with the former lineup, they are still here to stay and will find new talents to prepare for next year's TI season.

"Rebuilding the team will never be easy and, despite this being the our biggest hurdle yet, the Phoenix will work its way to rise again and compete in the highest level", CEO Eric Redulfin added.

Before this heartbreaking separation, TNC's former roster reached the finals for the The International SEA Qualifiers last July where they unfortunately failed to qualify as they were reverse swept by Fnatic in a wire-to-wire matchup.

Tims, Armel and Gabbi carried TNC's banner for almost 4 years while Bok and Boomy were also vital for the team's near perfect SEA Qualifers run.
