Out of Mineski
With less than three weeks left until the start of the closed qualifiers for The International 2019, Mineski has chosen to make a last-minute roster change. In a Twitter post, the team confirms that they have decided to part ways with their carry player Lai "Ahjit" Jay Son.
Ahjit joined Mineski in the beginning of this year, after the teams former position 1 player Thiay "JT-" Jun Wen was loaned out to Invictus Gaming.
It's clear that the 2018/2019 DPC season has not met expectations for Mineski as they've failed to reach the heights their team did last year, where they surprisingly won the Dota 2 Asia Championships. This year, the teams highest finish was 2nd place at ESL One Mumbai, a tournament without most big team attending. In the DPC they've failed to break into the top 8 even once, leaving them well out of the race for a direct invite to TI9.
No replacement has been announced as the team is "currently exploring our options".
