Adroit Esports have announced that they have officially signed Filipino Dota 2 player Justin “Tino” Grimaldo as the team’s hard carry.

“We now focus on developing our chemistry among the team and [will] soon be able to show it in future tournaments,” said Adroit in a statement.

Adroit Esports also recently welcomed a new team manager in Gef “Botit” Osorio, who will help guide its players moving forward.
