One of the oldest veterans in the region, iceiceice, has played for the powerhouses in nearly every region. He played TI10 with Evil Geniuses and a few DPC seasons with Team Secret. He had joined Yeik "MidOne" Nai Zheng in Team SMG in late 2022, right before the TI11 qualifiers. But there he faced one of the most unfortunate incidents when Team SMG registered their players a tad bit too late and could not compete.

The Singaporean had missed TI11, though he attended the event and played the All-star match with other personalities. After departing Team SMG, iceiceice was absent throughout the first season of 2023 DPC. But he has returned for blood. Iceiceice returns to his homeland to assume the offlane position in Bleed Esports.

Fans have long associated DJ with the colors of Fnatic but this season will see something completely new. The Filipino position 4 has played for the notable organization since 2017 and it had six long years. But following Fnatic's withdrawal from the Dota 2 scene, all of its players are left to find a new home. The 28-year-old will now flex red and represent Bleed Esports in the next DPC season.

The revamped Bleed Esports, now backed with the prowess and experience of these two players, will compete as one of SEA's biggest threats. Coupled with 13K MMR carry player, JaCkky, and former captain of TSM, Dubu - they make a murderous stack. Not to mention, their up-and-rising midlaner, Kordan, who has had an impressive showing last season.
