Neon Esports looks to turn things around with the arrival of veteran support Ryan “Raging Potato” Qui, the team made the announcement last Wednesday.
The Filipino Dota 2 standout last played for Team SMG before getting relegated to the inactive list last year.
“I would like to announce that Ryan Jay ‘Raging-.-Potato’ Qui will be joining our roster as position 4, this man has tremendous talent and a wealth of international experience, a combination that I believe will return Neon to DPC contention,” said Neon Esports CEO Robert Campbell in an official statement.
Meanwhile, the team last played in the Division II of the third tour of the Dota Pro Circuit Southeast Asia 2021/22. Neon Esports completely flunked out of the DPC after finishing winless in seven games.
Neon Esports is looking to join the second tour of the 2023 Division II tournament through the closed qualifier.
