Bleed Esports is reuniting one of Southeast Asia’s best offlane duos in a serious effort to tussle in the region’s competitive Dota Pro Circuit.
Daryl “iceiceice” Koh and Djardel “DJ” Mampusti are the Singaporean organization’s new additions to the roster, following the departure of Natthaphon “Masaros” Ouanphakdee and Prieme “PlayHard” Banquil.
This marks a reunion between an offlane duo who played together for two years under the Fnatic banner.
Iceiceice’s most recent team was an unfortunately short stint with Team SMG, where the team failed to properly register for The International 11 qualifiers.
Dj was recently left without a team after Fnatic pulled out of Dota 2, marking the end of a six-year period with the black and orange.

With this new roster, Bleed is aiming for the stars.
Bleed finished sixth in its debut season in the DPC, though it was closer than the rankings seemed. The Singaporean org finished with a 3-4 record, just one series win away from attending the Majors.
Still less than a year into its lifetime as a professional Dota 2 org, Bleed will hope to be able to carve out a space in the competitive SEA region — no team won less than six games throughout Tour 1, making every series a hard-fought opportunity towards Major qualification.
Fans will also be curious to see Singaporeans iceiceice and Kordan teaming up — the country’s most experienced and accomplished player paired with a young rising star.
