After a trial run with the Southeast Asian veteran, Team Aster welcomes Mushi as its newest member.
When Team Aster removed Gao “loveyouloveme” Yuan from its registered roster a few days ago, there were a couple of rumors as to who would be replacing him on the roster. The most prevalent of those theories though, was that Southeast Asian veteran Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung would become the newest member of the team’s lineup after standing-in for the squad in the recent StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor China Qualifier. Today, it appears that those beliefs have proven true, as Team Aster officially added Mushi to its registered Pro Circuit roster. The move came on the same day that the team began its run at ESL One Katowice, with the organization looking to confirm the change prior to the team’s first matches at the event itself. With one of the most experienced players in the Dota 2 world now on side, Team Aster will look to begin a revitalization effort in response to its recent failure to earn a return to the Pro Circuit stage.
While Mushi has found himself a new home, there is still one last bit of news to be addressed. Mushi came to the roster of Team Aster less than 1 month after being introduced as a member of Southeast Asian squad Tigers. With his departure from that team, Tigers will now have to begin a search for a new fifth player to round out its roster. The loss of Mushi also brings with it a penalty for Tigers on the Pro Circuit, as the team losses 20 per cent of its current Pro Circuit Point earnings to drop from 76.8 to 61.44 points.
The roster of Team Aster following the addition of Mushi:
Liu “Sylar” Jiajun (Carry)
Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung (Mid)
Lin “Xxs” Jing (Offlane)
Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao (Support)
Lu “Fenrir” Chao (Support)
Fu “Q” Bin (Coach)
Xu “BurNIng” Zhilei (Coach)
Yang “tou” Lin (Manager)
