PSG.LGD are rumored to be rebuilding its roster for 2023 after a disappointing DPC season.
According to Vici Gaming’s Zhou "Yang" Haiyang in a livestream, PSG.LGD’s current roster will take a break from the competitive scene for at least half a year.
In return, PSG.LGD are rumored to recruit half of the EHOME roster as well as scouting for a new carry & mid laner for the upcoming season.

Following its disappointing run at The International 2022 (TI11), PSG.LGD are heavily rumored to be fully rebuilding its roster from scratch for the upcoming 2022/2023 DPC (Dota Pro Circuit) season. According to Vici Gaming’s Zhou "Yang" Haiyang, the Chinese giants’ current roster are looking to take a break after a harsh two-year stint, with Zhang "Faith_bian" Ruida already announcing his retirement after TI11.

He also noted that PSG.LGD will recruit half of the EHOME’s current roster, before scouting for a new carry & support for the team.

PSG.LGD’s current roster to take a break after 2 years

According to Twitter user @Tr1H4rd3rDota2 who has consistently posted updates on the Chinese Dota scene, Vici Gaming’s Zhou "Yang" Haiyang recently shared that PSG.LGD will be rebuilding its roster from scratch for the upcoming season during his recent livestream. He also stated that the current roster will be taking time off from the competitive scene to recover.

While the rumor remains unproven, the rebuild could realistically happen as Zhang "Faith_bian" Ruida already announced his retirement after TI11. Additionally, the burnout of playing for two years had taken a toll on the players themselves, especially with Wang "Ame" Chunyu who had hinted that he would be retiring from the scene after The International 2022.

Yang added that PSG.LGD will be looking to recruit half of EHOME’s current players for the upcoming season, before scouting for potential players for the safe lane & middle lane positions. Should the rumor became a reality, here is PSG.LGD potential lineup for 2022/2023:

  • TBA

  • TBA

  • Nicholas "zeal" Lim

  • Lin "planet" Hao 

  • Zhang "zzq" Ziqiang

As of now, PSG.LGD has neither denied or confirmed the rumors regarding its current roster’s future. However, with the way that the roster shuffle has been going lately the community can expect massive changes coming from the Chinese region soon enough.
