Former NAVI captain ALWAYSWANNAFLY reveals himself as Talon coach, brings them to TI112022-09-17 14:06:00
Ukrainian streamer and former NAVI captain Andrii "ALWAYSWANNAFLY" Bondarenko replaced Lee "FoREv" Sang-don as the coach of Talon Esports. He revealed this on his Telegram after the team qualified for The International 2022.
Well, I'm the new coach of Talon, and we practiced for all these days [before and during the qualification]. By the way, my timezone is +5 compared to theirs, so I was getting up at 3-4 am. We've made it to TI. I will continue improving their game. There's trouble with language because some of them have very bad English.
AWF is the pro-scene veteran who has been playing since the early days of Dota 2. His career peaks were reached with Empire in 2014-2015 and later with FlyToMoon in 2018. With both of these teams, he climbed to the top 12 at TIs. After their win at OMEGA League: Europe in 2020, FlyToMoon was signed up by NAVI.
Andrii left the squad in May 2021 and was inactive since then, just streaming Dota 2. Talon's previous coach FoREv parted ways with the team on August 28, before the regional qualifiers for TI11.
