Cignal Ultra re-signs Abat for TI10 Qualifiers

Cignal Ultra welcomed back former carry Denz “Abat” Anedez to its Dota 2 roster for the upcoming The International 10 Southeast Asia regional qualifiers last Wednesday.

Abat last played for Filipino squad South Built Esports – leading the squad to a 4-3 record and a third-place finish in the Dota Pro Circuit Season Two-Southeast Asia Lower Division. The roster composed of former players from Vice Esports, however, was released by South Built Esports prior to the regional qualifiers.

Prior to Season Two, Abat was part of the Cignal Ultra squad that finished Season One at third place through a 4-3 record.

The team, however, was already in shambles as early as the Closed Qualifier Stage Two when Abat threw a tantrum on social media after an embarrassing Game Two loss against Team Veteran. Cignal won the opening game by a huge margin.

Abat quickly vented his frustrations, posting an “LFT” status on his Facebook page which meant ‘looking for a team.’

The former Team Amplfy carry then went AWOL in Cignal’s match against HOYO which forced Cignal coach Jae “Jae” Paulo to fill in the carry spot. The team dropped the opener before forfeiting their second match.

Team captain Erice “Erice” Guerra assumed the carry role for two games before Abat finally returned against Zero Two. Despite the forgettable qualifiers round, Cignal managed to qualify for the lower division.

The organization parted ways with Abat after Season One and replaced him with Avelino “Ab1ng” Parungao in Season Two – where the team finished dead-last with a 0-7 card.
