Competition for the ESL One Los Angeles qualification is certainly more exciting. After narrowly qualifying for the DreamLeague Season 13 regional qualification, T1 carried out a major overhaul leaving only Lee “FoREv” the Don who was also the first player to be announced by T1.
Through the announcement at the DOTA Pro Circuit registration, two players from Indonesia who officially docked at T1. These players are Muhammad “inYourdreaM” Rizky and Tri “Jhocam” Kuncoro who previously played at BOOM Esports.

Although he succeeded in getting BOOM to win the ESL Indonesia Championship Season 2 and second place in the 2019 ESL Clash of Nations, he failed to get the team to qualify for the DOTA Pro Circuit tournament. He was finally officially inactive from the team until finally released in early January.
Whereas Jhocam is said to be one of Indonesia’s best support at this time. He joined BOOM Esports for 2 years before finally moving to PG BarracX. Jocham successfully brought BOOM through to the three DOTA Pro Circuit minor tournaments in 2019.
When he moved to PG Barracx, he successfully brought the team to represent Indonesia in the 2019 SEA Games sports DOTA 2. However, he did not succeed in bringing Indonesia to win a medal in the event. The Indonesia Predator League 2020 qualification will be his last tournament with PG Barracx.
