EHOME has finally announced their new roster for the upcoming season. After ViCi Gaming revealed their roster on Tuesday and PSG.LGD announced their final squad earlier today, EHOME has also disclosed its new members. There have been multiple player swaps between EHOME and PSG.LGD for this season.
Besides the player swap with PSG.LGD, the biggest change to the EHOME Squad is the addition of carry Song "Sccc" Chun who had set out his intentions of taking a break from the Pro Dota Scene. His desire to take time off has turned out to be short-lived as he has been signed by the EHOME organization. This will be a great stimulus to his competitive career as he had been facing some monetary problems with the high living costs of Shanghai.
The players transferred from PSG.LGD include Yang “Chalice” Shenyl and Jian Wei “xNova” Yap, playing the roles of 3 and 5 respectively. After Xu "fy" Linsen and Lu "Somnus丶M" Yao left PSG.LGD earlier this month, xNova looked dejected as he tweeted, “Everything will never be the same anymore.” It will be fascinating to see who both of these players pan out with EHOME after having enjoyed considerable success with their former organization. In addition to these two players from PSG.LGD, Yao "Yao" Zhengzheng is the third member of PSG.LGD who has joined as the coach of EHOME.
The positions of the mid lane and the soft support will be filled by Guo "Xm" Hongcheng and Zhou "Yif" Yifu (also known as James) respectively. They join Ehome from CDEC Gaming. Playing mostly among Chinese teams and having no substantial victories, both of them will be looking to put on a strong performance for EHOME.
EHOME’s former carry Liu "Sylar" Jiajun is likely a free agent now as the organization has already thanked the player for his contribution to the team. The other four players and coach have been moved to PSG.LGD as mentioned above in a player swap of sorts.
EHOME FINAL ROSTER:
Song “Sccc” Chun
Guo “Xm” Hongcheng
Yang “Chalice” Shenyl
Zhou “Yif” Yifu
Jian Wei “xNova” Yap
With almost all the Chinese major organizations unveiling their full squads, it is going to be a treat to watch which team emerges out the champion of the China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1, beginning tomorrow.
