PSG.LGD Parts Ways With Zeal
PSG.LGD had a successful run in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) China 2023 Tour 2: Division I, finishing second in the standings and qualifying for the highly anticipated Berlin Major 2023. With a strong fourth-place finish in the group stages and a secured upper bracket slot for the playoffs, PSG.LGD was one of the favorites to win the tournament. However, the team's performance in the main stages was lackluster, resulting in their elimination from the tournament after a loss to Talon Esports in the lower bracket. Following the disappointing performance, PSG.LGD announced changes to their roster.
Zeal is no longer in PSG.LGD
China's powerhouse PSG.LGD recently announced that they would be parting ways with their offlane player Nicholas "zeal" Lim following their elimination from the Berlin Major 2023. The decision may come as a surprise to some fans, considering PSG.LGD's recent successes in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) China 2023 Tour 2: Division I, where they finished 2nd in the standings and qualified for the Berlin Major. However, the team's disappointing main-stage performance may have been a contributing factor to the decision.
Despite the loss of zeal, PSG.LGD still has four of their previous players, including TI10 finalists Cheng "NothingToSay" Jin Xiang and Zhang "y`" Yiping, and they will be looking forward to the new DPC season with a new player to hopefully bring more success to the team.
China’s next DPC season will be exciting
China has always been a strong region in Dota 2, with numerous strong teams playing in the region. However, the upcoming DPC season will see some significant changes, as TI8 finalists Lu "Somnus" Yao, Xu "fy" Linsen, and Yang "Chalice" Shenyi have come together in Azure Ray, along with coach Zhang "LaNm" Zhicheng, to compete in the next DPC season. With their combined experience and skill, Azure Ray is expected to be a strong contender in the region.
The next DPC season in China is shaping up to be an exciting one, with various changes and new beginnings. Fans will be eagerly watching to see which Chinese teams can come out on top and compete for a spot at the upcoming Bali Major 2023. With strong teams like PSG.LGD and Azure Ray in the mix, the competition is sure to be fierce.
