Abed joins newly formed Team Onyx

Dota 2 Alexander “ZDS” Di Stefano

In more news out of the ‘Spring Shuffle,’ the 16 year old Filipino mid laner Abed has joined as the last member of Team Onyx.

Team Onyx was formed at the start of 2017 by Kanishka 'Sam' 'BuLba' Sosale, Mason 'mason' Venne, Kim 'DuBu' Doo-young and Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho, and will compete in the NA region. After announcing his departure from Execration on the 30th of December 2017, Abed joined Team Onyx on the 6th of January 2017, but will be replaced by Francis 'FrancisLee' Lee as a stand in while he finalises his move to the United States.

The Team Onyx roster is now:

United States Mason 'mason' Verne
Philippines Abed 'Abed' Yusop
United States Sam 'BuLba' Sosale
South Korea Kim 'DuBu' Doo-young
United States Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho

Abed was known for his god-like performances on Meepo, notably going 18-0 against Complexity Gaming at The International 2016, with an insane 1200 XPM and 900 GPM. Given Team Onyx’s depth of talent and experience, and Abed’s prodigy status in the mid lane on Invoker and Meepo, the future looks bright for this new team in the heating up NA region.

Best of luck to the boys in their run at the Kiev Major 2017.


Will we see Abed and the rest of Team Onyx make an impact at the Kiev Major?

  • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
    Still kinda feel Bulba doesn't fit this line up but anyways lets see how it goes....I personally wouldve preferred Jeyo :D
    • James "Yared" A ,
      BuLba has been bouncing around; he needs to be as cold as the Universe. As for Jeyo, PPD recognizes his work alongside his model and mentor Fear. So basically, they can run a stable dual core, because he can play support.
