BurNIng all alone in DK as Dai and QQQ get the boot

Dota 2 Andreas “drouks” St

Following the dramatic departure of rOtK and Super, QQQ/357 and MMY!!/Dai are also out of the team. With the four players out of the way, BurNIng is left alone in DK, and will most likely build a dream-team around him.

It has been a few days since Bai 'rOtk' Fan and Jun Hao 'Super' Xie were kicked from DK, with a dramatic and controversial exit. It seems that the Chinese squad was not done with the drastic changes after the International. This time, it is Zeng Rong 'Dai' Lei and Yi 'QQQ' Yao who were forced to leave the squad. The only remaining member for the Chinese powerhouse is the famous carry player Zhi Lei 'BurNIng' Xu, and rumour has it that he is building a new impressive squad around his name. Some of the whispers suggest that players like Zhi Cheng 'Lanm' Zhang and Jia Jun 'Sylar' Liu to be the new members of the potential colossus.

DK Facebook page announcement:

We may be late with the updates, but the answer to almost all your questions is YES! Yao "357/QQQ" Yi, Lei "MMY" Zengrong, Bai "rOtk" Fan and Xie "Super" Juanhao are no longer affiliated with our organization. We are currently rebuilding the team, and we have yet to announce our first official signing. We will give you more updates as soon as possible.

Thanks for your understanding. We can only hope that you will continue to support Team DK regardless of who join.


As for QQQ and Dai, many speculate that they would retire while 2p suggests the return of Yi Tian '820' Zou, the legendary EHOME captain, to the competitive scene. 2P speculate that he will be forming a team with Dai, QQQ and other major Chinese players and free agents.

DK's run in the previous version of The International was impressive, and they were the only Asian team to ever take a game from the winners, the Swedish team Alliance. Abandonning their traditional four-protect-one strategy, they decided to delve into a more aggressive playstyle, with great success. However, after their defeat against Orange in the playoffs, they earned the fifth place and dropped out of the tournament before the grand finals. This premature exit probably started the turmoil that caused these massive changes in the squad's roster.

Team DK current roster:

China Zhi Lei 'BurNIng' Xu

Possible recruits

China Zhi Cheng 'Lanm' Zhang
China Jia Jun 'Sylar' Liu
Malaysia Yee Fung 'MuShi' Chai

Malaysia Hock Chuan 'ChuaN' Wong
