Jio “Jeyo” Madayag has parted ways with Team Archon to return to SEA alongside ex-teammate Michael “Ninjaboogie” Ross. Ryoyr and Ninjaboogie currently play for Team Rave in the Philippines, the team that all three were previously members of together. Team Rave has yet to officially confirm Jeyo’s return.
I guess it's official Jeyo is going back to play in SEA with ninjaboogie, good luck to them. Jeyo was a super fun teammate to have.

#RAVEvolutionReturns – Jeyo and Team Rave
It appears that Jeyo’s intent is to make a return to SEA Dota and play alongside his ex-teammate Michael “Ninjaboogie” Ross. Ninjaboogie and Ryo “Ryoyr” Hasegawa are currently members of the Philippine Team Rave, an organization that all three competed for previously.
Despite their strong performances in the SEA region and in international tournaments, Rave-Dota disbanded soon after they were eliminated, 0:2, by MVP.Phoenix in the Lower Bracket finals of the TI5 SEA qualifiers.
Later in June, Rave-Dota announced that the organization would be inactive for a period of time.
The organization went on a hiatus for six months before returning. On November 27th, the organization announced their new lineup, featuring all new and local talent from the Philippines.
Their first roster since June 2015 did not produce any achievements and results and, on February 19th, the Filipino team announced the Rave reform via Facebook. To fans’ delight, the team will be including former members Michael “Ninjaboogie” Ross and and Ryo “Ryoyr” Hasegawa.
