Esports: Talon release duo after Winter Tour

Dota 2 side Talon Esports have confirmed that core players Tal "Fly" Aizik and Kim "Gabbi" Villafuerte will be leaving the organization ahead of the Spring Tour of the 2022 Dota Pro Circuit.

In the DPC SEA Div 2, meanwhile, Nigma Galaxy SEA are 3/10 to beat Lilgun, who are 12/5 to prevail.

Winter of discontent

Talon's decision to release the pair from their roster was the result of changing circumstances surrounding personnel coupled with a disappointing showing by the team during the Winter Tour.

In the lower bracket of the Southeast Asia lower division during the Winter Tour, they finished fifth out of eight teams with a 3-4 win-loss record.

That still earned them a spot in the open qualifier but they were beaten 2-1 by Ragdoll in the semi-finals.

Both "Fly" and "Gabbi" are now free agents and able to explore other options within Dota 2 in advance of the Spring Tour.

Damien "kpii" Chok, Rafli Fathur "Mikoto" Rahman and Brizio Adi "Hyde" Putra Budiana will, however, be kept on in the Talon team.

"We will be taking this time to reevaluate our roster and will be competing in the upcoming DPC SEA Tour."
