Former Fnatic Support Player 343 Returns to Southeast Asia
Adam Erwann Shah “343” bin Akhtar Hussein, who rose to fame as a breakout support player in 2016, is making his way back to Southeast Asia. After spending the past four months in Europe with B)ears, 343 will be joining Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung’s new Mineski roster in the Philippines. With Fnatic, 343 played a crucial role in the team’s success and finished in the top four at the International 6, becoming one of the breakout stars of last year.
343 Steps in for Nico “eyyou” Barcelon in Mineski
343 will be replacing Nico “eyyou” Barcelon on the Mineski roster. After Mushi was given control over the team’s roster, Barcelon joined Mineski on March 23. Now, it’s 343’s turn to take on the support role in the team.
343’s Time with B)ears
After his successful stint with Fnatic, 343 joined B)ears in late 2016. The team, which also includes players like Lee “Forev” Sang-don, Adrian “FATA-” Trinks, and Yazied “Yapz0r” Jaradat, had a stacked roster but failed to qualify for major tournaments like the Dota 2 Asia Championship and the Kiev Major.
Uncertain Future for B)ears
While it’s not confirmed whether 343 will be a permanent member of Mineski, the future of B)ears is unclear. With 343 leaving the team, B)ears has withdrawn its invitation to DreamLeague, indicating that the roster may not stay together for long. However, both 343 and B)ears’ players are unlikely to remain teamless for an extended period of time.
