Question: I’m wondering why Sync eSport doesn’t participate in hon tour anymore. I mean I loved watching you guys play in the world tour. Like Insania, Khezu, Micke.

Zlapped: Hi guys, and welcome to episode 23. Today’s question is by Hawkmiller.
Hawkmiller asks, “I’m wondering why Sync eSports doesn’t play HoN Tour anymore. I mean, I love watching you guys play in the world tour, like inSania, KayZu, m’ICKe, that was like the glory HoN. Why does the HoN tour nowadays just have Southeast Asian participants? I’m really wondering.”
Sync eSports doesn’t play HoN tour anymore because we disbanded after the world finals recently. That was always the plan, I think we announced it January – or, sorry, February – where I announced I was moving to Thailand.
I told my team in January or in February that I was going to move to Thailand, and they said, “Alright, that’s fine, we’re going to be moving to DotA, so let’s just make the split after the next world finals”. That was our official last tournament together. And then, shortly after, it was announced that NA/EU was not going to have another HoN tour.
And of course, that makes it impossible for me and my ex-team to actually play together and even play in a HoN tour at NA/EU because there was nothing to play. So, even if we wanted to stick together, even if we wanted to play HoN, there was no tournament for us to play. So it simply wasn’t achievable even if we wanted.
So, ultimately, there were no tournaments in HoN in NA/EU for us to play, I wanted to move to Thailand regardless before I even found out that there was no HoN tour. And, a few of the players on the team wanted to go play DotA. So, we don’t play together anymore for that reason and now I have a new team in Southeast Asia and I live and I play in Thailand with players like `5678, Lord `Mikael, Sockorata(?), and Moss, and that is my new team.
