iG Dota 2 roster change announcement
Former iG Dota 2 player Hao has officially transferred away from the team. The well-known ChuaN returns to iG’s first team roster. Banana continues on with iG as a substitute player. After friendly negotiations with Speed Gaming club (formerly RattleSnake), their player Luo as of today joins iG under a loan format, and he will be on trial with iG. During this trial period, he will represent iG in all competitions. We hope that iG’s Dota 2 team can create new glories upon playing together in this new year!

According to SGamer, who are quoting ‘sources’, the rumor is that Ferrari_430 will be making the move from solo mid to carry for iG. This is to replace Hao, who looks to be leaving to the long-rumored ‘dream team’. Additionally, the sources claim that banana will be either retiring or moving to a ‘backup’ role with iG. While Ferrari_430 has often in recent times been a pseudo-carry for iG regardless of his actual role, the biggest rumored change comes with the news that ChuaN will take up the solo mid role for iG. Rounding out the changes, the source says that Faith, who was rumored to be going to the dream team as well, will instead be staying with iG. Former RattleSnake mastermind Luo rounds out the new iG roster as the other support player, while YYF continues on as the offlane player for iG.

In the G-1 League match between TongFu and Flash, Chinese commentator 2009 revealed that ZSMJ is currently putting together a new team. The former supporters of LGD have devoted an amount of money to 830GOD, the goal being to create a new team. Involved are ZSMJ, Chisbug, and in addition they are trying to recruit 820, though he hasn’t shown much interest, so they’re also currently in contact with WE’s Jiejie and WE captain Luo. They’ve already been practicing together (video link – Dire team is Chisbug, 830GOD, ZSMJ, Jiejie, and Luo from top down), and ZSMJ’s Steam account confirms, with over 111 hours in the past two weeks on Dota2. Added to all the previous rumors, we have reason to believe that the news of ZSMJ making a comeback to be true.
