Team Aster appears to have broken away from the typical cycle and completed the selection of its players sooner than other teams. As we head into the offseason, we anticipate some significant roster changes within the region, as has become customary for the seasonal roster shuffles that occur in China Dota 2. did.
They finished in fourth place at this year’s International 11, making them the most accomplished Chinese team there. For the entirety of this region, finishing in second place or above is never regarded to be an achievement. As a result of having the least amount of failure, Aster is just making minor adjustments to its lineup.
ASTER AT DPC 2023
Given that Western European teams took the top three spots at TI this year, the Chinese teams most definitely did not win large. Aster is one of the greatest contenders to come out of the area, anyway.
Fast forward to today, when Aster revealed Zhai “Xwy” Jingkai as their newest squad member. A pretty significant part in a dominant squad will be assumed by Xwy, especially for him. However, Xwy is now there, hoping to top the accomplishments of its predecessor in TI Championships and DPC.
WHAT EVER BECOME OF ORI?
Zeng “Ori” Jiaoyang is now brought into the picture. The mid-player for Aster is a formidable player that is well-known across the battlefield. Any fan would have anticipated that Aster takes the high road of roster changes by remaining together for another season to practice given their victory at TI11. Just take a look at what PSG.LGD was able to do at TI11 after another year of practice.
Putting jokes aside, Ori is a fantastic and seasoned player, therefore fans were perplexed when Aster removed Ori from their active roster. It turned out that Ori had other reasons for leaving Aster actually, for quitting competitive Dota 2 altogether.
Ori retires to pursue a legal profession, according to a Reddit discussion. In actuality, he is a model student who passed the legal licensing exam and graduated from one of China’s top law schools. His parents have set up a legal employment for him so that he may begin his career as a lawyer straight immediately.
Before this statement, there were unsubstantiated allegations spreading online that Ori’s parents wanted him to give up his Esports career. After additional explanation, it becomes reasonable that Ori departed for a more long-lasting profession that will last, which is undoubtedly not possible in any esports career.
EVERY EYE ON XWY
In either case, Team Aster will have Xwy to use in the upcoming DPC 2023 season. Aster.Aries, a sister squad of Team Aster, was the new player’s previous team. His career, however, has roots in well-known titans like EHOME and Keen Gaming.
Xwy was able to make his TI9 debut during his two-year tenure with Keen Gaming, despite having fairly disappointing performances. He has participated in ESL One competitions, DreamLeague, and even majors, thus Aster isn’t adding just any player to their elite lineup.
The most recent example of his achievement is the DPC (2022) Tour 3, when his team finished sixth in the Division 1 bracket. Nevertheless, these are old accomplishments. Although not bad for a sister team, it is absolutely nothing to be proud of.
Taking into account how upheaved the Chinese competitive scene is following the retirement of several seasoned players and a shoddy TI run. Before the DPC 2023 begins the following year, we can probably anticipate more interesting lineup changes.
