The newly sponsored and government backed Malaysian team, Team Taring, has officially pulled out of all tournaments they are currently participating in.
The news was revealed by the captain, Adam Erwann Shah “343” bin Akhtar Hussein on his twitter and facebook page.
According to 343’s announcements, the team is experiencing severe internal issues that need to be addressed.
The announcement came after the team lost to team Execration 1:2 in the quarterfinals of the BTS Series 3.
Team SatuDuaTiga was formed in mid June 2015 from mostly from ex-G Guard Esports members. Although they had a few roster changes between their inception and November when they registered for the Majors, the team had quite a bit of success in a short amount of time. They had started to become a strong presence in the region and were creating a lasting image and place for themselves.
On December 13th at the Malaysia Cyber Games 2015, Team SatuDuaTiga triumphed over 63 other Malaysian teams competing for the opportunity and honor to assume the identity of Team Taring.
The winning roster at the event was pronounced Team Taring and received financial support, sponsorship, management team, training and facilities as part of becoming the representatives of Malaysia in Dota 2.
Taring is a Malay word which means fangs. It represents the Tiger in everyone and is the the national animal of Malaysia.
Since being sponsored, the team had taken fourth place in the Shanghai Major 2016 SEA Qualifier.
