“We would like to thank (Nando) for all his contributions for the team from the open qualifiers to the main event. He was a big part of team success in this journey,” the announcement reads. “We would like to welcome back Kim ‘Gabbi’ Villafuerte, who was our former player that contributed in some of our success that includes championships. He will start playing with the team in our upcoming tournaments.”
Gabbi previously played for Execration from September through March. During his time with the team, the team won a minor tournament, the ASUS ROG SEA Cup. He moved to Clutch Gamers on March 23, where he helped his team qualify for Manilla Masters and EPICENTER.
Nando played for Execration since June 2015 until last August and then rejoined the team in January. At The International 7, Execration barely scraped into the lower bracket of the main event in eighth place in Group B with a record of 5-11. The team was eliminated in the first round of the main event by Team Secret, marking Execration’s final placing as 13th, which came with $30,000 in prize money.
