In a compelling development, the juggernaut of Indonesian esports, Bigetron Esports, is gearing up for a return to the Dota 2 arena, assembling a formidable squad comprising both Filipino and Indonesian talents in the imminent future. This exciting revelation came to light through live stream sessions featuring Filipino players intricately connected to the anticipated move to Indonesia.
In recent days, the Indonesian Dota 2 community has been abuzz with speculation surrounding the strategic plans of a seasoned esports organization poised to make a foray into the Dota 2 competitive circuit. This speculation prompted responses from various quarters, including insights from Boom Esports CEO, Gary Ongko, who conjectured that Bigetron was the focal organization in question.
Following the initial surge of rumors, former Blacklist Rivalry star, Carlo “Kuku” Palad, stated during a live streaming session his intent to return to the competitive fray, hinting an offer which came from an Indonesian organisation. Anticipated to include talents such as Jinn “Palos” Lamatao, John “Teehee” Abanto, Kenny “Xepher” Deo, and Yuri “Yowe” Pacana, this burgeoning lineup was unveiled to the public through Kuku’s stream.
Subsequently, Yowe, seemingly corroborating the speculation, leaked the information during his recent live stream to affirm that Bigetron was planning to go with these aforementioned lineup. To underscore his confirmation, he shared a visual montage featuring these rumored players. At the moment of this writing, both Yowe and Bigetron have refrained from offering any official response regarding the leaked roster.
A noteworthy aspect of this unfolding narrative is that, if substantiated, it would mark Bigetron’s second venture into the competitive realm of Dota 2. Notably, the esports organization maintained an active Dota 2 division from 2017 to 2019, regularly participating in Indonesian competitions before gradually entering a hiatus in the subsequent year.
In the year 2022, CEO Edwin “Starlest” Chia had previously entertained plans to acquire Malaysia’s Orca team. However, these plans were abruptly rescinded mere days before the team received a punishment from Valve, citing allegations of match-fixing.
