Not long after he announced a break from competitive play, Chinese Dota star and former Team Aster carry player, Song “Sccc” Chun has returned to lead a new EHOME roster.
Sccc will be joined by Yang “Chalice” Shenyi, Yap “xNova” Jian Wei, and Yao “Yao” Zhengzheng, whom EHOME received from PSG.LGD in exchange for Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang and Zhao “XinQ” Zixing.
The roster will be rounded out by former CDEC Gaming players Guo “Xm” Hongcheng and Zhou “Yif” Yifu.
Sccc will once again be the carry player as Xm will take over as the midlaner, while Chalice will return to the offlane position after shifting to the carry role for PSG.LGD earlier this season.
Yif and xNova will be the support duo at the four and five positions, respectively, while Yao will be the team’s new coach.
Before ultimately signing with EHOME, Sccc previously announced that he will be taking a break from competitive play after his negotiations with a different team fell through.
Sccc, along with Pan “Fade” Yi and Kee Chyuan “ChYuan” Ng, notably parted ways with Aster last month in the first major roster shuffle for the Chinese Dota scene this season.
EHOME will debut their new lineup in the China Dota 2 Pro Cup Season 1, which starts on September 17 and will be the first major offline Dota 2 LAN event since the COVID-19 pandemic and community quarantines started.
EHOME Dota 2 roster:
- Song “Sccc” Chun
- Guo “Xm” Hongcheng
- Yang “Chalice” Shenyl
- Zhou “James” Yifu
- Jian Wei “xNova” Yap
