After more than one and a half years of playing under the Mineski banner, Mushi and the organization part ways.
Chai 'Mushi' Yee Fung joined Mineski in March of 2017 seeing many ups and downs in their journey through the two DPC seasons so far.
A great season but disappointing 9-12th place finish at The International 2018 saw three of Mineski's players depart from the team for the upcoming DPC 2018-2019 season.
A few days after Mineski announced that their run with Daryl Koh 'iceiceice' Pei Xiang, Michael 'ninjaboogie' Ross and Anucha 'Jabz' Jirawong had come to an end, they revamped their roster to include Kim ‘Febby’ Yong-min and Damien 'kpii' Chok as well as welcoming a relatively new player Thiay 'March/JT' Jun Wen - formerly from Geekfam. Only Chai 'Mushi' Yee Fung and Kam 'NaNa/Moon' Boon Seng were left from the TI8 team and fans felt the new roster was force to reckon with - on paper at least.
The team failed to qualify for any of the DPC events but managed to take a title at Red Bull Guardians LAN just one month ago. They weren't able to duplicate their success though at ESL One Hamburg 2018 and instead took a very disappointing 11-12th place finish after coming in last in their group.
Mushi has announced he is a free agent on his facebook, indicating he is still looking to compete in the new season. Mineski has not announced a replacement player yet.
The Chongqing Major open qualifiers start next week with the regional qualifiers following, starting on the 25th of November for SEA.
