It looks like “The Mega Chinese Roster Shuffle” is reaching its climax. One of the most dominant teams in the region, PSG.LGD, has finally revealed their roster. Amidst all the conjectures by the Dota 2 community over the past one month, PSG.LGD has chosen to bring 4 faces new to the organisation. The only one to return is their former carry Wang "Ame" Chunyu who had been a notable part of the PSG.LGD squad for around 4 years.
The new players added to the team include Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang and Zhao “XinQ” Zixing as loanees from EHOME. The other 2 joining them are Zhang “Faith_bian” Ruida, Zhang “y`” Yiping who have joined in as free agents. The intriguing part of the addition of 4 of these players is that they were all playing for EHOME just months ago, and had recently won the DPL-CDA Professional League Season 2. So, even though these players are all new players for PSG.LGD, they already have already spent a significant amount of time together as a four man unit.
With Wang "Ame" Chunyu returning to PSG.LGD colours after a short stint with CDEC Gaming, it will be interesting to see how he syncs with a whole new team. Zhang "xiao8" Ning, who serves as the coach, has accompanied the 4 new players from EHOME TO PSG.LGD . He had been a crucial part of LGD Gaming way back in 2011-14.
So in total, 5 player from EHOME have moved to PSG.LGD and it just seems to be the same team playing under a different banner with only Ame replacing Sylar, the former EHOME carry player.
PSG.LGD, as an organization, has had a very dismal one year after being regarded as the most powerful team alongside ViCi Gaming for a long time. Lu "Somnus丶M" Yao and Xu "fy" Linsen left the team earlier this month and are rumored to be joining the new 4AM organization.
Yang “Chalice“‘ Shenyi and Jian Wei “xNova” have been transferred to EHOME in a bilateral agreement while Ren “old eLeVeN” Yangwei returned to his former organisation ViCi Gaming.
PSG.LGD roster for the new season:
Wang “Ame” Zhunyu
Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang
Zhang “Faith_bian” Ruida
Zhao “XinQ” Zixing
Zhang “y`” Yiping
PSG.LGD is going to get in the action as early as tomorrow, facing off Team Aster in the China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1, the first ever LAN Tournament since the onset of the pandemic.
