The Chinese organization has announced a trio of new players to rebuild its roster for the 2019-2020
After parting ways with star player Song “Sccc” Chun at the end of August, it was clear that the Chinese organization would be making further changes to its roster before the start of the new Pro Circuit season. Today, the organization revealed what that new roster will look like, introducing a trio of new players to its lineup. Carry Lai “Fonte” Xingyu, Midlaner Yin “Aq” Rui, and Support Zeng “Faith” Hongda have been announced as new members of the Newbee roster, having transferred from the lineup of Typhoon E-Sports. Also joining the squad will be coach Li “Key” Guo, who takes over coaching duties from Wang “Banana” Jiao. Banana will be shifting into the role of manager for the squad, replacing Gao “GX” Shunxing.
Newbee’s 2018-2019 campaign did not go quite as well as the organization had been hoping for, as the squad fell from its position of power in the Chinese region amidst a myriad of roster changes and poor results. With its radical changes over this offseason though, the organization has to be hoping that it will finally be able to get itself back on track in the near future and mount a strong enough effort to return to the top of the regional hierarchy in this 2019-2020 season.
The roster of Newbee following its announced changes:
Lai “Fonte” Xingyu (Carry)
Yin “Aq” Rui (Mid)
Wen “Wizard” a.k.a. “awen” Lipeng (Offlane)
Yan “Waixi” Chao (Support)
Zeng “Faith” Hongda (Support)
Li “Key” Guo (Coach)
Wang “Banana” Jiao (Manager)
