Orange eSports welcomes a new all-star roster
As the competitive scene shifts to Dota 2 following the conclusion of SMM, Orange eSports has underwent a series of roster changes to prepare for a new wave of competition. The team welcomes veterans Yamateh and Ice from MSPR as well as a fresh face, Ohaiyo, to the Orange Dota 2 family.
Original members Nicxh and Clanton will be permanently replaced by Yamateh and Ice while Orange academy team player Ohaiyo fills in for Mushi after the latter revealed plans to become the team's official coach (see).
Fans will get to witness the new roster this weekend as Orange participates in their first Dota 2 tournament, the Malaysia Invitational held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. Invited teams include fellow countrymen MUFC, Philippine's pride and joy Mineski.Infinity and lastly, the ever-so-elusive MYM from Singapore.
However, because his replacement, Ohaiyo, will not be participating at the upcoming Dota 2 Malaysia Invitational, Orange will be fronted by an all-star Malaysian lineup of Mushi, Yamateh, Ice, Winter and Xtinct this weekend.
Playing with a lineup reminiscent of ESTC 2010's Nirvana.my (where the team defeated EHOME to win the championship title), all eyes will be on Orange eSports this weekend as they look to make their first mark in Dota 2.

"I hope that the new Orange roster will be able to reach greater heights. All the best to Clanton and Nicxh in their future endeavors - it has indeed been a pleasure playing and working together for the past two months.
Here's to a new beginning!"
