According to new updates seen from multiple sources, Chinese Dota 2 Legend Xu “BurNIng” Zhilei apparently persuaded Boboka to stay in the team.
The update also mentions that there are internal issues within the team and that a ‘certain individual’s’ reputation may be affected.

Following Team Aster's elimination from the Bali Major and their subsequent failure to secure a direct invite to The International 12, there were recent updates, where Chinese Dota 2 legend Xu "BurNIng" Zhilei hinted at a quarrel within the team and expressed concerns about someone's reputation being affected.

Additionally, BurNIng shared his efforts to convince Ye "BoBoKa" Zhibiaoto to remain calm and avoid impulsive decisions, but the player ultimately chose to leave. These recent developments have sparked speculation about the circumstances surrounding Team Aster's internal conflicts and the need for a replacement in the position 4 role.

Burning's tries to convince Boboka to stay in Aster

According to the tweets by CN Dota In A Nutshell, BurNIng acknowledged the existence of issues within Team Aster, suggesting that a quarrel took place after the team's elimination from the Bali Major. While BurNIng claimed to be aware of the specifics, he refrained from disclosing them publicly to prevent any negative impact on someone's reputation.

Furthermore, BurNIng revealed his attempts to persuade BoBoKa to maintain composure and avoid making impulsive decisions. However, despite the advice, BoBoKa decided to part ways with the team, leaving Team Aster in search of a new position 4 player.


These developments match the reports by another Chinese Dota 2 Blog, where the entire sequence of events was listed out, starting from Boboka announcing that he is looking for a new team, to Burning’s efforts to convince him to stay with the team. 

According to the report, Burning talked about the Boboka situation on his recent livestream, highlighting the need to find another position 4 player, and how he cannot talk more about the situation as it can impact reputations of other players. 

Team Aster's Need for a Replacement 

In a previous announcement by Team Aster, it has been confirmed that BoBoKa has seemingly parted ways with the team, creating a void in the position 4 role. The news follows BoBoKa's Weibo post stating that he is "LFT" (Looking for a Team).

The versatile player expressed a willingness to play positions 3, 4, and 5 and emphasized his preference for support roles where he feels most comfortable. This announcement implies that BoBoKa's journey with Team Aster has come to an end. Following BoBoKa's departure, Team Aster announced that Hu "Kaka" Liangzhi was the replacement for the position 4 role.

The recent developments have shed light on the entire situation around Boboka’s departure from Team Aster, highlighting the internal issues within Team Aster, and raising questions about the nature of the quarrel and the potential impact on the team's cohesion.

BoBoKa's decision to leave the organization has added further complexity, necessitating Team Aster's search for a replacement in the position 4 role. As the team navigates the TI12 qualifiers, it remains to be seen how they will address these internal challenges and reestablish a strong lineup capable of securing a spot at The International 12.
