Rumors: zExBinGo to TongFu, Maybe to LGD

zExBinGo to TongFu

Previously part of a temporary TongFu 3rd team, formed to compete in Korea’s NISM showmatch series (TongFu 3rd team won the event), zExBinGo has been rumored according to inside sources to be on the verge of sealing a move to TongFu’s first team after Zhou’s retirement. The high level pubstar has been long regarded as one of China’s new hopes, and his role within TongFu’s new team is yet to be determined, with Kabu rumored to be leaving TongFu once again. Additionally, rumors claim that former pro scene players yAobAi (of former PanDa note), and NEO/Sag (RattleSnake) may be joining TongFu.

Maybe to LGD

According to another inside source, high level Chinese pub player Maybe, known as a very complete player that mainly plays carry and playmaker, is getting close to joining LGD.

Of interest is that if all these rumors come true, this means that TongFu is replacing up to three first team members — further fuel to the fire that is Mu joining up with a rumored superteam? And Maybe would be replacing xiao8, whose D2L trip to Vegas with LGD was heavily hinted at being his last outing with the team.

My dad didn’t blame me, in fact his wish was for me to win these games today, but not only have I let down fans I’ve also let down my dad… I’m sorry~ I wish my dad health, happy birthday~~

Sansheng and xiao8

Zhou

About his trashtalking at offline (NEST): “Been a while since my last offline event, I wanted to shout and get our team’s spirit flowing. Usually in these kinds of events if you lose in spirit then things become much more difficult, in the group stages our loss to VG came from just this reason. But anyway, today’s taunts might have been a bit much, so if I offended anyone I want to say sorry here :D”
