Chinese organization, Keen Gaming (KG), has revamped its roster to build around longtime midlaner Zhai “一” Jingkai, adding four new players, including Malaysian veteran, Tue “ah fu” Soon Chuan.
The roster overhaul comes after a disappointing showing for KG in the 2019-2020 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) thus far.
Despite high expectations for the squad that even saw them add legendary Support player, Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung in September last year, KG failed to qualify for any DPC events.
The team’s poor showing prompted Liu “Kamma” Chang, Song “dark”‘ Runxi, and Jiang “天命” An to leave the team of their own volition, KG said in an announcement on its official Weibo page. 天命 has requested to be listed for transfer to a new team, Kamma will be taking a break citing personal reasons, while dark has retired from competitive play to focus on his health.

Yang “Erica” Shaohan will take over the carry role from Kamma after being promoted from KG’s developmental squad, Keen Gaming.Luminous, while Xiao “ss” Yihu will be the team’s new offlaner on loan from Team Aster.Aries. Zhao “Yds” Jiayi also joins the squad from Team Serenity to form KG’s support duo alongside ah fu, who last played with Revive.
KG’s new roster is set to make its debut in the Dota2 Pro League Season 7 and in the China Pro League Season 2.
