Newbee and Aster made this season so many changes that no DPC app or Dota 2 fan could even keep track of.

It’s been a horrific season for both of them, although Aster had somewhat a better start with two Major qualifiers won, for the Kuala Lumpur and Chongqing events. They finished bottom four at both these Majors which made Aster’s coach and co-owner Xu “BurNIng” Zhilei to continuously swap players in and out, trying to find the best formula for an immediate result.

Newbee on the other hand, haven’t qualified for any of this year’s Dota Pro Circuit tournaments. However, they went to MDL Macau back in February 2019 where they finished top four, just behind Virtus.pro, Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid. Their roster has suffered almost weekly adjustments through the past couple of months, most recently losing also Luo “Ferrari_430” Feichi to EHOME. Ferrari was playing at Newbee’s secondary team, Mr. Game Boy, but according to Zhang “xiao8” Ning, Ferrari didn’t agree with Newbee’s decision to remove Wen “awen” Lipeng from the main team, so he wanted to leave as well. Ironically, awen is now listed in the final roster of Newbee, but one of the biggest surprises is their decision to bench Xu “Moogy” Han.

Moogy and Song “Sccc” Chun have played side by side at the Newbee main team and formed one of the most explosive core duo in the professional scene since September 2016.

Together, they took Newbee to the grand finals of TI7, but that’s also the point where something broke for good inside the team. After the painful 0-3 loss against Team Liquid in Seattle, Newbee have only gone from bad to worse. Moogy is now officially benched and his role is taken by a former teammate of Sccc from 2014-2015 Newbee Young times, Tan “JiaJia” Lijia. Back then, JiaJia was playing offlane, but now he is ready to carry the Newbee main team.

Another interesting change is the addition of Lu “Fenrir” Chao who was taken on loan from Aster and who will play in the fifth support position now.

“This is the last call before TI and we are absolutely working hard for the upcoming Major and Minor qualifiers,” said Newbee on their official announcement from this Sunday, May 5.

Newbee roster:

Tan “JiaJia” Lijia

Song “Sccc” Chun

Wen “awen” Lipeng

Yan “Waixi” Chao

Lu “Fenrir” Chao

Coach: Wang “Banana” Jiao
