One of SEA’s most experienced and valued players has moved to China for the next season. Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung will be joining Keen Gaming for the upcoming 2019-20 DPC season following his recent stints as the coach of Mineski and as a carry for Geek Fam.

Although Mushi is primarily a carry/mid player, he has specifically announced that he will be playing as the Hard Support. This move gives Keen Gaming plenty of experience and a good shot-caller to help navigate them through the season. However, it also leaves the future of Song “Dark” Runxi in peril.

Last season was largely a failure for Mushi. He kicked off the season with Mineski and failed to qualify for a single LAN, before teaming up with Dendi in Tigers. Following that, he made the decision to move back to China and join Team Aster. However, he didn’t find much success in that team as well.

Finally, he once again moved to SEA to join Geek Fam and build one of the stronger lineups in the region, at least on paper. He failed to qualify for any LAN event and missed out on a TI berth after failing to deliver in the SEA qualifiers. Mushi then joined Mineski as a coach and coached them through TI9, to end the season on a high.

Many expected him to don the coaching role once again, this season. However, Mushi looks like he has different ideas.
