Mushi signs with Mineski as roster plans to undergo reformation, kYxY rumored to join the new lineup
One of South East Asia’s most prominent organisations, Mineski, has just signed the Malaysian pro player Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung in a plan to reform their Dota 2 lineup in what they describe as the team’s “biggest change yet”. While this is not the first time that Mushi has played for a team that is not bearing the Malaysian flag as its main banner, this move from Mineski surely is some sort of a big surprise and one that will hopefully turn out for the better.
Prior to signing Mushi, Mineski‘s performance has been underwhelming results wise as they struggle to secure multiple qualifier slots for major LANs for the SEA region and undergoing multiple player changes during the latter parts of 2016 before having the latest roster that we know today prior to acquiring Mushi.
As the plan is to reform the lineup, a rumour, which surfaced 2 days before this news on the Thai gaming website GameGeek.in.th, Mineski implies that fellow Malaysian pro, Lee “kYxY” Kong Yang will also be joining Mushi and that Mineski will drop 2 of their current players Ralph Richard “RR” Peñano and Galvin “Meracle” Kang Jian Wen to favour this change. One of the reasons as to why this is a strong possibility is that GameGeek has also listed Mushi as part of the new Mineski roster prior to this confirmation which then leads us to believe that there might be some truth behind this rumoured new roster.
As of the moment, we are all still awaiting further updates from Mineski in regards to their new roster, but so far we can confirm that a legendary Malaysian pro will be leading the squad that proudly carries the Filipino banner.
