Dota 2’s post-TI roster shuffle

Malaysian veteran Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung returns to China, this time as the Position 5 role at Keen Gaming.
Meanwhile, Southeast Asian squad Fnatic has dropped its mid-laner Abed “Abed” Yusop and former coach and player Kim “DuBu” Doo-young. In return, the team picked up promising talent Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon and veteran Kam “Moon” Boon Seng for the next DPC season.
Lastly, Chinese mid-lane star Song “Sccc” Chun is joining Team Aster, having been with Newbee the last four years.

Chikurin wins his second Tekken Master tournament at Summer Jam 13
Summer Jam 13, despite being on American soil, featured an all-Japan Grand Final. Yuta “Chikurin” Take took first place with an undefeated run, but Shoji “Double” Takakubo was a strong and worthy opponent that kept the THY player on his feet.
In the Grand Finals, Chikurin went with his usual choice of Geese Howard while Double stuck with his main character of Marshall Law.
In the end it all came down to the fifth game’s last round, with Chikurin distancing himself once he got a significant health advantage. With Double trying to rush him down for some damage, Chikurin executed one last Reppuken to the dashing Law to secure his well-earned victory.
