FULL SENSE have unveiled their new roster heading into VCT 2023, which features three new players and a new head coach.
THAILAND – FULL SENSE waved goodbye to Chanitpak “ChAlalala” Suwanaprateep and Elamrahim “LAMMYSNAX” Khanpathan, with the duo having made their last appearance in ESL Clash of Nations SEA, where the team finished runners-up to Thai compatriots MiTH.
In their place, the Thai organization signed former FW Esports duo Teerapong “Teerapong” Wongsirisuponchai and Taned “killua” Teerasawad, as well as former X10 member Phakphon “Flukky” Sukhonchasiri. In addition, Yutthapong “dojayut” Prabyai has been appointed as the team’s new head coach. The quartet’s signing rounds out the Thai team’s starting lineup for 2023.

Flukky joins FULL SENSE on a free transfer, where he previously plied his trade at X10 since early 2022 before parting ways late last year. During his free agency, the Sova/Raze main briefly stepped in for XERXIA during TEC Challenger Series 9, with the team exiting the tournament in fifth place.
Meanwhile, Teerapong and killua are mainly known for their time with FW Esports, where they plied their trade for the past 15 months, helping the team reach their peak second in the 2022 VCT Thailand Stage 2 Challengers and advance to VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers. Furthermore, the pair of newcomers now link up with the other two members from their time in FW Esports after a relatively successful end of VCT 2022: in-game leader Apinya “Apinya” Laotaew and coach dojayut.
Apinya joined the team in September to replace Kititkawin “PTC” Rattanasukol, who now plays for MiTH, amid a difficult period for FULL SENSE after failing to qualify for VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers. Heading into the 2023 season, FULL SENSE hope that the additions of fresh talents will help them to overcome that hurdle and begin putting a more competitive face in APAC-level competitions.
Rounding out FULL SENSE’s newly-revamped roster is the team’s head coach, dojayut, who also came from FW Esports. The 28-year-old was a former Overwatch coach for LYNX TH and GIANT LYNX and was most notably active at the highest level of domestic Overwatch throughout the year 2019, taking part in various competitions such as Overwatch Contenders 2018 Season 3 Pacific, Overwatch Contenders 2019 Season 1 Pacific, Overwatch Thailand Major 2019 Season 1, and Asia Community Cup. Following dojayut’s retirement from the game, he transitioned to VALORANT and stood behind 47 Gaming and FW Esports last year before coaching with FS.
We will get a chance to see how the seven-man lineup will work on January 21 as they make their debut in VCT Thailand Split 1. ESL has not yet made an official announcement regarding the four invitees, however, it is widely assumed that FULL SENSE will be included on the list.

- 🇹🇭 Chanawin “JohnOlsen” Nakchain
- 🇹🇭 Nattawat “SuperBusS” Yoosawat
- 🇹🇭 Thanaphat “THEE” Limpaphan
- 🇹🇭 Apinya “Apinya” Laotaew
