Ahead of the first Tour of the 22/23 DPC, Southeast Asia (SEA) welcomed new names in its Division I. One of them was Bleed Esports, which acquired the Div I slot from T1. All eyes in the region were locked onto the new names to see how they would fare against the regional favorites. But SEA unfolded with surprises as TI11 teams, BOOM Esports and Fnatic, drop to Division II. Bleed Esports survived the battle and finished in 6th place.

However, the organization wants to strive for more as they opt for change. The Singapore-based organization parted ways with Thai player, Masaros, and Filipino player, PlayHard.

Masaros is one of the notable offlaners in SEA who flourished during his time with Motivate.Trust Gaming in 2020 - 2021. The player had a short stint with Fnatic as well as UD Vessuwan.

PlayHard has a decade-long career in pro Dota 2 and he has found great success in many of his former teams. One of his major achievements was with Neon Esports where he finished 5th-6th in the One Esports Singapore Major in 2021.

Both these players will have to find a new home in Tour 2 of DPC. On the other hand, Bleed Esports has yet to reveal the new players that will fill in the vacant spots. There are currently a number of free agents in the region including players from Fnatic who had just played their final match in the colors of Fnatic yesterday.

There will be more updates as the regional DPC goes into a snooze. While waiting for more roster updates, fans can anticipate the upcoming Lima Major which is set to begin in less than a week.
