Tigers are an extremely well-known Southeast Asia Dota 2 squad, having some of the best players from the region featured in the team. Sadly, after failing to qualify for The Chongqing Major and having made zero impact at The Kuala Lumpur Major, two players have decided to depart from the squad.
Tigers were once under the TNC organization along with Predators, but late last year the team decided to venture out under a new banner – Static Dream, while still keeping the same name. Tigers were always a fan favourite, and nothing changed when they made the change over to the new organisation either. The team continued to play some amazing Dota 2 and in November of last year they won the DreamLeague Season 10 Minor and found themselves being a part of the Kuala Lumpur Major.
Tigers showed amazing prowess through the Minor, but something seemed to instantly change when it came to the Major and the team fell apart, unable to finish anywhere higher than the bottom 4 of 16. The SEA squad attempted to come back after this, trying to qualify for the current Major but to no avail and thus they say goodbye to both Lai ‘Ahjit’ Jay Son and Muhammed ‘inYourdreaM’ Rizky.
Today, we are parting ways with Lai Ahjit Jay Son and Muhammad "inYourdreaM" Rizky for them to continue on pursuing their dreams. We wish them good luck and all the best. And most of all, we want to thank them for the strength they shared during the time with us. #roartigers pic.twitter.com/FuaBfhlDQV

The two players have not yet announced what team they will be joining nor have Tigers announced any replacements as yet – but we’re sure that big things will come in the near future for all parties.
