Despite the fact that it's been a couple of weeks now since TI 9 ended, the post-TI shuffle is still going. That said, today we saw that a new team was registered for the upcoming new DPC season – Team Vitality.
Team Vitality features a couple of very known players in the Chinese Dota 2 scene. The first one is Tue “ah fu” Soon Chuan, who played with Royal Never Give Up not a long ago. However, he was removed from the active roster, thus allowing him to find a new team.
The other famous player in the new roster is Ren “old eLeVeN” Yangwei, who was a part of Keen Gaming during TI 9. Unfortunately, the performance of the Chinese team was not good at all and resulted in an early elimination. Naturally, some changes had to be made inside the squad and the removal of old eLeVeN was one of them.
In addition to the two mentioned above, there are two more players currently in the team. One of them is Gao “loveyouloveme” Yuan, who was a part of Team Aster just a couple of days ago. That said, the young talented player decided to continue the ongoing trend in the Chinese Dota by switching his name to ruloli.
Last, but definitely not lest we have Yang “NeverEnd” Puand. He was a part of EHOME for a while but it seems like the things were not going that good. Similar to Gao, he also changed his name to End.
At this point in time, there is no official information in any social media about the new team. We don't even know the fifth player in their new roster yet, not to mention a potential team owner or sponsors. Of course, as time goes on, we will most likely have new information to share.
For now, this is Team Vitality's roster:
Yang “zZZ/NeverEnd” Puand
Gao “ruloi/loveyouloveme” Yuan
Tue “ah fu” Soon Chuan
Ren “old eLeVeN” Yangwei
It is worth reminding that according to the new DPC rules, the teams have to register their five-man rosters by September 28th, 2019. If they miss this date, they will have to fight their way through the open qualifiers in order to get a spot in the Minor or Major.
