Kuku Returns to the TNC Predator Active Roster
The Filipino Dota 2 team TNC Predator has announced that Carlo "Kuku" Palad returned to their main roster to participate in the upcoming qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 11. Earlier he was benched due to a racist scandal.
This December Valve banned Kuku from attending The Chongqing Major after he had been caught using a racist phrase towards Chinese language in a public game. In addition to it, Valve decided to give them a 20% point penalty.
The team attended the major with Ryo "ryOyr" Hasegawa, who had joined the team as a substitute. The team placed third in their group, making it to the playoffs lower bracket where they defeated Team Aster in the first round and lost to Team Liquid in the second round, placing 9-12th at the event and receiving $15,000 in prize money and 150 DPC Points. Currently the team sits at the 9th place of Dota Pro Circuit rankings with 870 points.
