The new lineup for the Chinese boys in blue and white has been unveiled to include Catyou (formerly named cat feces ) and Inflame.
Newbee's DPC 2017-2018 season did not exactly go as they had hoped or would have planned out. A strong start to the season, ended up seeming to fizzle out by the end and then eventually was completely extinguished in the first round of the lower brackets at The International 2018.
The roster that had been together for two years and saw 2nd place at The International 7 had decided to make their first roster change in over two years as Damien 'kpii' Chok departed only a few days ago followed quickly by support player Hu 'Kaka' Liangzhi who made the announcement in a post on his weibo account.
Enter the replacements; He "Inflame" Yongzheng is a veteran and known player from China who was last competing for LFY. No stranger to success, he placed 3rd at TI7. Next up is Tang "CatYou" Xiaolei who has played for the Newbee organization since he arrived on the scene in 2017.
The new roster will debut in The Kuala Lumpur Major Chinese Regional qualifiers starting on the 16th of September.
