Mikoto and poloson join Bleed Esports

Bleed Esports completes its roster with star midlaner Mikoto and support poloson ahead of DreamLeague Season 22.

Bleed Esports has announced two new additions for its team — Rafli "Mikoto" Fathur Rahman on midlane and Wilson "poloson" Koh on hard support. With that, the search is complete and Bleed Esports will debut its new roster starting with the DreamLeague Season 22 qualifier. The roster is as follows:

  1. Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong
  2. Rafli "Mikoto" Fathur Rahman
  3. Natthaphon "Masaros" Ouanphakdee
  4. Djardel "DJ" Mampusti
  5. Wilson "poloson" Koh

Closing the challenging chapter of 2023

The last few months had been restless for Bleed Esports, having to shuffle its roster no less than twice. Post The International (TI) 2023, Bleed enlisted Tommy "Taiga" Le for the ESL One Kuala Lumpur qualifier. Unfortunately, Bleed failed to qualify for the main tournament after consecutive losses to Blacklist International and Aurora Esports. After another unsatisfactory result from a Tier 3 tournament called Kobold Rave, Bleed and Taiga decided to mutually part ways.

Taiga later joined Level UP for BetBoom Dacha Western Europe open qualifier. There was no official news from them on this transfer, which meant that this could be yet another short-term partnership. Evidently, that decision might serve well because Level UP lost both open qualifiers to the same team, MarsBet Team.

Bleed looks toward a better future with Mikoto and poloson

Needless to say, both Mikoto and poloson are some of the most reputable players from Southeast Asia (SEA). Mikoto is a distinguished midlaner who had his meteoric rise through Talon Esports, the indisputably best SEA team of 2023. He was responsible for some of Talon's biggest achievements, most notably placing third at Riyadh Masters 2023 and making it to TI12.

As for poloson, he is a seasoned veteran who has been around the scene since 2012 and played for numerous world-class teams. These included T1, Nigma Galaxy (SEA), Ybb (Xtreme) Gaming, Invictus Gaming, and Team SMG. Moreover, poloson already had some experience playing for Bleed Esports when he stood in for DJ for Kobold Rave.

Mikoto and poloson will test their mettle with Bleed Esports in the upcoming DreamLeague Season 22 qualifier starting February 2024.
