The Chinese organization appears to be parting ways with 2 of its players after failing to reach either of the recent closed Pro Circuit qualifiers
The Team Aster is apparently going to be undergoing further changes in the wake of the most recent round of Pro Circuit qualifiers. After failing to reach the closed qualifier stage for both the MDL Disneyland Paris Major and the OGA Dota PIT Minor 2019, the squad will be looking to make some adjustment in preparation for the 2018-2019 season’s final round of Pro Circuit qualifiers scheduled to occur in May. Midlaner Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung and Support Fu “Q” Bin are both set to leave the organization as part of thos move, with the duo of Peng “88” Jin and Weiwei “Amazons” Liu being brought in to replace them. As of right now, the Team Aster organization has not officially confirmed this move, with the news being broken via StarLadder and a technically unofficial Team Aster Twitter account.
Since beginning the season in surprisingly strong fashion with appearances at both the of first 2 Majors, Team Aster has suffered from a dramatic drop off both on the international level and within its home region as well. Since the start of 2019, the team has 3 Top 4 finishes across 8 total event appearances, with 2 of those Top 4 finishes coming in recent open qualifiers. Despite those struggles, Team Aster still sits in 19th in the Pro Circuit Rankings with 120 points (although that total will drop once the team registers a new roster), and could potentially still make a run for a Top 12 spot if its recent roster changes can produce a turnaround over the final months of the season.
The roster of Team Aster following its most recent roster change:
Luo “hmx” Jingdong (Carry)
Peng “88” Jin (Mid)
Lin “Xxs” Jing (Offlane)
Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao (Support)
Weiwei “Amazons” Liu (Support)
Yang “tou” Lin (Manager)
