Invictus Gaming announce changes to main roster and Vitality squad

The Chinese organization is looking to make a return to prominence in the 2019-2020 season with some changes to its lineups

Invictus Gaming has fallen on somewhat hard times within the Chinese region, as the organization has lost much of its former power against its regional rivals. Coming into the 2019-2020 season though, the organization is looking to reclaim that power with updated roster for both Invictus Gaming and iG Vitality. The main iG roster will see the addition of a veteran player, as Hu “kaka” Liangzhi comes to the squad as its newest Support. In order to make space for kaka’s arrival, the organization has parted ways with Gao “@dogf1ghts” Tianpeng, who now joins the roster of Royal Never Give Up. Also departing the iG organization is Lin “doodle”‘ Zikai, who leaves his inactive role within the organization to join the roster of Team Sirius.

The main Invictus Gaming roster isn’t the only one seeing changes though, as the organization is also overhauling the roster of iG Vitality, it’s youth/development squad. The trio of Liu “bobo” Ningbo, Yang “InJuly” Xiaodong, and Li 白马” Shilong have all joined the iG Vitality roster, with the latter 2 taking up active roles while bobo will serve as the team’s substitute. With the arrival of those players, the squad also parted ways with two of its former members, with Support Luo “Django” Yebo leaving the team while Offlaner Zhao “black.z” Shungeng becomes inactive.
