This was an action-packed week, as we started off with The Asia and towards the end of the week kicked off the highly-anticipated G-League offline event in Shanghai. LGD won the former, and ForLove have posted a huge upset in the first match of the latter. We’ve got interviews with players from both teams this week posted.
Perhaps just as interesting were a few other snippets that revealed no less than THREE NEW TEAMS potentially coming from the Chinese scene: iG to form a new squad, recruited and trained by iG’s current players themselves; TongFu possibly forming an international squad; and former WE captain xiaoluo, former TongFu player Kabu, and former EHOME powerhouse LaNm coming together as the core of another new team.
For all the goods, check below! Thanks for reading Dotaland and be sure to comment if you have anything to say.
