Thunder Predator down to three as Matthew departs

Thunder Predator have had a rather great year in the South American scene, but as the year comes to an end, the team have lost one of their players – leaving only three on the roster.

While 2020 may have seen a visible lack of Dota 2 Pro Circuit action due to the current global pandemic, regional tournaments filled the schedule throughout the year, and for the South American teams, this gave them a good chance to shine. For Thunder Predator, they took the opportunity and saw multiple first place finishes and a plethora of second and third finishes too – alongside a few scattered fourth, fifth and sixth. However, in early December, Farith “Matthew” Puente decided to take a break from play until the DPC returned – and although the team found a suitable stand-in for the time, they have now confirmed the departure of Matthew from the roster.

In a post made via the organization’s Facebook, the team confirmed that the player had left, thanking him for his time and wishing him well on his journey forward. For TP, the roster is now down to three, as their stand-in, Alexis “sl4d1n-“ Cepeda, is currently under contract for Infamous – albeit as a streamer. The current TP roster is:

  • Alonso “Mnz” León
  • Leonardo “Leostyle-“ Sifuentes
  • Romel “Mjz” Quinteros

According to the Dota 2 Major and Minor signup page, Matthew has already moved onto a new roster named Ωmega Gaming, which we are sure to see perform in the new year.

We look forward to seeing more action from the SA Dota 2 region once the DPC starts up again and hope that Thunder Predator continue to perform in the way they have in the regional events of 2020.
