ChuaN takes on coaching duties for new Neon
Meanwhile, TI2 champion and Dota legend Wong Hock “ChuaN” Chuan will be the team’s coach for the upcoming season. This marks the first coaching gig for the Malaysian after stepping back from the competitive scene a few years back.
It was a rough post-season for OBxNeon. After their Cinderella run in the Singapore Major, the team failed to make it to The International. Not long after, the team’s core players skem, yopaj, and Natsumi- departed, with skem and yopaj landing in BOOM Esports while Natsumi- reunited with Boomy and other former Adroit players in Polaris Esport.
“While I understand that many of you may be upset with the departure of these players, I assure you that we have done everything we can to build a team as competitive as it was last season. It is still our objective to attend Majors and ultimately The International 2022,” said Robert Campbell, OB.Neon’s CEO, in the announcement.
The team is currently seeing action in the BTS Pro Series 9: Southeast Asia.
