After we learned yesterday that T1 has finalized its roster, we have another new team on the horizon. However, this one combined two of the most famous SEA players of all time, Chai “Mushi” Lee fung and Khoo “Ohaiyo” Chong Xin.
The two legends will be joined by three other players to form Team IO. By the looks of it, they definitely have the quality of players needed to achieve success. However, it will be very interesting to see if they have what it takes to play against the best teams from this region. After all, both TNC and Fnatic are very strong right now.
Team IO’s roster
Here are all players in the new team from position one to five:
- Ryan Jay “Raging Potato” Qui
- Chai “Mushi” Lee fung
- Khoo “Ohayio” Chong Xin
- Kalvin Kang “Meracle” Jian Wen
- Benhur “Nayeon” Lawis
The carry of the team used to play alongside Mushi and Ohayio before. Unfortunately, after they failed to qualify for the Leipzig Major, the team they were on ceased to exist.
As we mentioned earlier, we are yet to see the new team in action. Needless to say, it won’t be easy for them, especially in SEA, which is one of the best regions right now. It's no wonder Valve decided to give three slots for the LA Major to SEA. As a comparison, NA only has two.
