Aerowolf Pro Team announce disbandment; Free Fire division to stay
The Rising Wolf has fallen following the recent financial problems surrounding the organization.
Following the recent financial problems surrounding the organization, Aerowolf Pro Team have decided to fully suspend their operation, which includes the Mobile Legends (MPL and MDL rosters), PUBG Mobile, and its talent division.
"With this announcement, we, from Aerowolf Pro Team, want to announce that we're officially suspending our Mobile Legends, PUBG Mobile, and talent operation," the announcement reads on Instagram.
The announcement comes after a string of events in recent months, beginning with many players from their Mobile Legends and PUBG Mobile divisions not receiving their salaries; leading to Agung "Bottle" Dita, Deden "Clay" Muhammed, Rinazmi, and Supriadi "Watt" Dwi Putra leaving the squad as a result.
Not only a handful of issues with the Mobile Legends division, but Aerowolf also made it too serious that Tencent Games intervened due to the organization not paying their players on time, resulting in halting the organization's participation in their esports ecosystem. The lineup was compelled to transfer to another organization, Alter Ego in this instance.
The biggest setback occurred when Aerowolf Pro Team's partner, Genflix, chose not to extend their contract with The Rising Wolf and instead joined hands with Rebellion. Genflix Rebellion will take Aerowolf's position in MPL Indonesia Season 8 and so forth.
Aerowolf Pro Team's journey as The Rising Wolf
After acquiring the old TEAMnxl> MLBB division, they rapidly grew into one of Indonesia's largest esports organizations. They began as a modest organization that fielded a CS:GO squad with young prodigies like Jason "f0rsakeN" Susanto (now Paper Rex VALORANT) and Jose "Jo" Iman (now Invictus Gaming R6). Apart from MLBB, they had also participated in PUBG, PUBG Mobile, Rainbow Six: Siege, and other games.
Apart from that, Aerowolf Pro Team shocked the public during the fourth to the sixth seasons of the MPL by adding Kaesang Pangarep, the son of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, as their tenth player.
