The former Team Serenity captain brings his talents to the 2 time Major Champions as Pyw steps into Fade’s previous role
Vici Gaming has announced who will be replacing the departed Pan “Fade” Yi, as the squad’s former captain left the organization at the end of August before joining the roster of Team Aster shortly after. In place of Fade, the organization has opted to bring in former Team Serenity captain and Support Xiong “Pyw” Jiahan. Pyw had previously been playing the offlane role for the most recent iteration of the Team Serenity roster, but this move to Vici Gaming will return him to his original Support role. While Vici Gaming’s announcement was focused mostly upon the addition of its new player, the organization also announced that Carry Zhang “Paparazi” Chengjun will be changing his official ID beginning this season, changing his name from the previous Paparazi to Eurus.
Vici Gaming emerged as one of the most powerful forces within the Chinese region last season, winning 2 Major Championships and challenging PSG.LGD for a place atop the regional hierarchy. While Fade was a significant contributor to that success, the squad still comes into this 2019-2020 season with the majority of that roster intact. Adding on to that is the fact that Pyw already comes to the team with a respectable level of experience both within China and on the international level. If all goes to plan, then Pyw will integrate himself into Vici Gaming’s lineup and strategies quickly and without major difficulties, as the squad looks to retain its place as one of the leading teams both within is home region and on the international level as a whole.
The roster of Vici Gaming following the addition of Pyw:
Zhang “Eurus” a.k.a. “Paparazi” Chengjun (Carry)
Zeng “Ori” Jiaoyang (Mid)
Zhou “Yang” Haiyang (Offlane)
Xiong “Pyw” Jiahan (Support)
Ding “Dy” Cong (Support)
Bai “rOtK” Fan (Coach)
Xu “JaL” Xiaoyun (Manager)
