Team DK were one of the first teams to announce massive roster changes after The International 3, with numerous speculations being made about the upcoming "dream team". FarSeer, DK manager,  confirmed four of the five players that will form the new DK.

DK is a team with major history in the Chinese DotA scene. It has been the home for some of the finest players ever to honor us with their presence, like Yan Jun 'YaphetS' Bu and Zhi Lei 'BurNIng' Xu. The team's management decided to make radical changes in the roster once again, after the team's earning the fifth place in Seattle.

Staying faithful to the tradition, DK's new additions are also impressive. The first player to enter the squad is no other than Yee Fung 'Mushi' Chai, known as M-God, easily the most valuable player in The International 3. The second addition is Zhi Cheng' Lanm' Zhang, the former EHOME and RaTtLeSnAkE player who shined with his performance in The International 3 Eastern Qualifiers and WildCard match.

Apart from the the announcement of the two additions, FarSeer, DK manager, went on to say they will welcome Zeng Rong 'Dai' Lei back into the team. The addition of Dai can either mean DK was not successful in acquiring Malaysian player Hock Chuan 'ChuaN' Wong from iG or has decided to give Dai a second chance.

It is quite safe to assume that DK will not settle with mediocre replacements for the recently booted Yi 'QQQ' Yao, Fan 'rOtk' Bai and Jun Hao 'Super' Xie. In an attempt for the squad to get back on track for the future East-West clashes, Team DK will look for major names to occupy the one remaining slot. The aftermath of The International 3 has brought many famous players in the market, including Jia Jun 'Sylar' Liu and Jian 'ZSMJ' Gong. Sylar is the most likely candidate, but his introduction to the team would force a change in roles for either him or BurNIng, who was recently spotted practicing off-lane heroes.

FarSeer stated they are currently in talks for their fifth player and further confirmation will be released in the upcoming hours or days. Stay tuned to GosuGamers as we bring you the latest news on the Chinese shuffle.

China Zhi Lei 'BurNIng' Xu
