Following the International 11 (TI11), almost every top team in the world changed its roster, including the strongest team in China, PSG.LGD. Three players left the squad, leaving just Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang and Zhang "y`" Yiping. However, it has been a successful start for the new PSG.LGD roster in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 as the team heavily defeated Dawn Gaming in its opening series. NothingToSay spoke about playing with the new roster during the post-match winner's interview. NothingToSay mentioned that they were getting along well and communicating as well as they could, and that they have a solid win record in scrims thus far.

NothingToSay perceives no big difference in the new PSG.LGD roster

PSG.LGD defeated Dawn Gaming in the first series of the DPC China 2023 Tour 1: Division I in just a little over 40 minutes. During the winner's interview, NothingToSay expressed confidence in the team's present position while providing an overview of the scrim results.

“I think we are really good right now and we have a decent win rate in our scrims so everything is working out really well for us right now,” he said.

As three relatively inexperienced players Guo "shiro" Xuanang, Li "xiàng yǔ" Longwu, and Lin "planet" Hao joined the squad to replace the mainstays of Chinese Dota 2, there appears to be a significant shift on the outside, but NothingToSay hasn't seen much of a difference playing with them.

At the same time, he also mentioned that with so many young players coming in, there is a sentiment that the players are tremendously driven these days.

“I didn’t feel too much difference (between the old and new PSG.LGD roster) but I do realize that with the new players coming to the season, everyone is very ambitious and everyone is really hardworking and we are trying to push towards the same goal.”

As captain y` continues to lead the team in games, coach Zhang "xiao8" Ning is also working to bind the team together with a particular focus on communication, NothingToSay added.

“I think mainly it’s our coach xiao8 who tries to keep us together and we focus more on communication and usually go it after the scrims. We talk a lot, communicate a lot, and we try to put the team together.”

A number of facets within the new unit's performance were evident in the first series of the season as they simply dominated their opponents on all fronts. But the journey is just beginning, and it will be challenging to fill the shoes of the ones that came before, especially when games against stronger opponents are played. Knights will be PSG.LGD's next opponent in the DPC China 2023 Tour 1: Division I on 10th Jan 2023.
