PSG.LGD has had a decent competitive season, as it dominated the regional league in 2022 on top of winning the Riyadh Masters 2022.

PSG.LGD had a difficult year in 2022, as the team only finished in the top six in The International 2022 (TI11), as opposed to its second place finish at last year’s TI (The International). Additionally, the Chinese organization has already begun to rebuild as it had already parted ways with Zhang "Faith_bian" Ruida & Zhao "XinQ" Zixing, with Faith_bian officially retiring from the competitive scene.
According to who has consistently posted updates on the Chinese Dota scene during the off-season, PSG.LGD’s captain Zhang "y`" Yiping confirmed that he is currently a free agent in a recent livestream.
Furthermore, he also provided updates on the remaining members of the team starting with Wang “Ame” Chunyu as the player was heavily rumored to be retiring from the competitive scene as well. However, the TI6 winner stated that Ame will be taking a break for the time being as he wanted to stream for a while before deciding on his future plans.
