TSM Dota 2 adds two new support players for DPC 2023

Two new support players join the TSM squad as they prepare for the upcoming season of DPC. The announcement comes days before the roster lock deadline which is on December 9.

TSM has announced the final two pieces of its Dota 2 roster - adding Whitemon and Ari. With these two additions, TSM has completed its Dota 2 roster for the upcoming season. 

The announcement was accompanied by a short video highlighting some of the more exciting plays by the supports.  

The Dota 2 roster lock deadline for DPC 2022-23 ends on December 9. 

What is TSM’s Dota 2 roster?

TSM’s Dota 2 roster is as follows:

  • Enzo "Timado" O'Connor
  • Jonathan "Bryle" Guia
  • Jonáš "SabeRLight-" Volek
  • Matthew "Ari" Walker
  • Matthew "Whitemon" Filemon

TSM finalizes its support players - not from NA

Whitemon previously competed in the SEA region playing for T1 esports. The support player has been a crucial component for his former team’s playstyle. Whitemon is an experienced player in the region and is one of the first players from Indonesia to qualify for TI. 

Ari previously played for UK-based org, Into the Breach, and will now move to NA to compete for TSM. Ari is a former Heroes of the Storm player and even reached #1 in the European ladder in 2018. However, after Blizzard discontinued the game’s esports scene, he switched to Dota 2.

TSM’s second year in Dota 2

TSM entered Dota 2 last year after it picked up the Moonmeander-led Team Undying. The pickup came at a crucial point as there were multiple Tier 1 NA Dota 2 teams that were still looking for an org to play. Immediately after the org pickup, TSM went on to top the first Regional Final taking down EG 3-2 in the best-of-three finals.

Over the past year, TSM also secured a second-place finish at ESL One Stockholm. However, the rest of their results weren’t as impressive as they would’ve liked ending with 19-20th place at TI11.
