Southeast Asian organization T1 has announced Sam "Sam_H" Hidalgo will join their Dota 2 roster.
Sam_H is an offlaner from the Philippines. He joins the otherwise-Singaporean roster after Lee "Forev" Sang-don, the founding member of the squad, departed in late July.
After recently trialing with Neon Esports
, Sam_H is transferring to T1 in time for their participation in ESL One Thailand: Asia.
Sam_H debuted in 2015 with TNC Pro Team. His all-time most played heroes in pro play include Batrider, Dark Seer, and Beastmaster, though recently he's favored Venomancer and Pugna.
T1 has struggled to find real success in Dota 2. Their most recent results have been middling, with a fourth-place finish in ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League
. Perhaps Sam_H will reinvigorate the squad as they head into the nearly-three-weeks long ESL One Thailand.
