DeMoN returns to PH, joins Gabbi, Armel, Boombacs, RR to form new team

Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho returns to the Philippines as part of a newly-formed team Team Admiral: reportedly based in Metro Manila, this new team will feature top Filipino players namely Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte, Armel Paul “Armel” Tabios, Ralph Richard “RR” Peñano, and Marvin “Boombacs” Rushton.

Through a tweet in his personal account, Gabbi announced that he will be teaming up with the mentioned tweet. He also implied that he will be playing as the Position 1 player. Gabbi previously played Execration since Sept 2017 up until early January this year.

His core duo will be Armel, the former mid laner for Clutch Gamers (who has been part of Clutch Gamers since its conception last Dec 2016). This specific duo was already part of Clutch Gamers for the better half of the year, where the organization found success in many SEA LAN Qualifiers. They were also teamed up with Position 4 player Boombacs during the same period.

RR will be returning to the Position 3 role after spending most of his time in his previous team Execration as a support player.

To complete their lineup, DeMoN returns to the Philippines and the Southeast Asian region to captain another group of four Filipino players. He previously captained for TNC Pro Team last 2016 — during the DeMoN-lead era, TNC Pro Team were able to reach TI6 and even ended up eliminating the then-favored OG in one of the biggest upsets in competitive Dota 2 history.
