Royal Never Give Up, one of the better teams in the China Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division I has been making significant alterations to its lineup. Just this week, the team added former Invictus Gaming captain Hu “kaka” Liangzhi to its lineup. Following this roster change, the team revealed that it had signed Malaysian carry player Daniel "Ghost" Chan Kok Hong (formerly of Sparkling Arrow Gaming).

The team has also finally confirmed that Zhong "God-King” Liushuai and Chong “FelixCiaoBa” Wei Lun have departed from the team.

  • Daniel "Ghost" Chan Kok Hong

RNG New Dota 2 Roster

This also confirms the removal of God-King and FelixCiaoBa. The latter had already announced that he was looking for a new team in April. 30% of the team’s current DPC points will be deducted for making these roster changes.

It is currently unclear on whether RNG will receive an additional 20% DPC points penalty for these transfer changes before the major. Valve’s rules state that “a team that removes a player after securing a slot at a Major will incur a 20% penalty on DPC Points earned during that event, in addition to the normal player-removal penalty.”

However, considering that the team is not going to be competing at the Major and instead will be competing at the China DPC 2021/2022 Tour 2: Regional Finals, it is currently ambiguous.
