Update: DeMoN confirmed to play for TnC at the upcoming TI open qualifiers

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

Although he was officially announced as joining the Peruvians at Infamous only two weeks ago, Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho is now rumored to have agreed a move to the Philippines to play with TnC Pro Team.

Both Infamous and TnC will participate in the open qualifiers for The International 6, and as the American bracket is likely to be the toughest we have ever seen at any open qualifiers so far, only by EG’s presence, DeMoN seems to have made a short notice change of heart and switched regions.

Sources from inside the SEA scene reported that DeMoN has arrived in Philippines and already started training with TnC where he will be replacing John Linuel 'Teehee' Abanto. However, the mid role Teehee was filling for TnC will be taken byCarlo 'Kuku' Palad and DeMoN will operate from the fourth position.

TnC roster:

Philippines Marc Polo Luis 'Raven' Fausto
Philippines Carlo 'Kuku' Palad
Philippines Sam 'Sam H' Hidalgo
United States Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho
Philippines Nico 'Eyyou' Barcelon
Philippines Gio 'WinterGSmallSon' De Ocampo - /Sub

An official announcement is yet to be issued by TnC, but Infamous did confirm that DeMoN left the team even before moving to Peru. For now, less than a week before open qualifiers to begin, Infamous is still looking for their fifth player.

[Update] June 16th: Early this morning, TnC Pro Team announced on their official website that DeMoN joined the Filippino squad. He will be indeed replacing John Linuel 'Teehee' Abant and will play position 4 support.

      If you were to talk about classic dota 1 sf days. WHERE IS PIS/YAPHETS !!!!! Damn he was a legend
  • jason "soulzreaver" x ,
    I would just like to put it out there that Demon and Fear started out playing together. They had the equal amount of talent and if not, Demon was the slightly more talented player. Nonetheless they had different work ethics and different levels of commitment to the game. Look where their life choices have led them. One is a TI winner on a top tier team which is constantly competing in prestigious tournaments and the other is... well the other is Jimmy i guess. I'd dare say if Jimmy were less playful in official games, Fear would without a doubt have included him on the current EG squad.

    KuKU back to mid! LezzGetItON!
  • EJ "FooD.Cross-Eyed" Delos Reyes ,
    From the looks of it, Fnatic and MVP have a chance to be directly invited. I just don't know if TNC's chemistry will still be there to carry them through the open qualifiers.
