While the main Dota 2 focus currently is the Chongqing Major, some teams are already preparing for the next event.
With the open qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 11 approaching, Tigers made some last-moment changes in their line-up. First, they announced that two of their players, Lai “Ahjit” Jay Son and Muhammad “inYourdreaM” Rizky would be leaving the roster.
A day later it was revealed that no other but Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung will be joining the team.
Mushi has been missing from the scene for some time. Leaving Mineski, where he spent close to a year and a half, it seemed like he’d just be taking a break from competitive Dota 2. The speculations seem to be true as now, two months later, he’s joined a professional team. For a time during his break, he was a free agent and we didn’t hear much from the Malaysian player, but now he’s back into it. Mushi is the fourth player on Tigers currently and they’ll be needing one more to complete the squad.
- Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung
- David “Moonmeander” Tan
- Kenny “Xepher” Deo
- Sivatheeban “1437” Sivanathapillai
The team currently has no coach, so Mushi might also be partially filling that role due to his many years of competitive experience. Tigers won DreamLeague Season 10 by defeating Natus Vincere in the grand finals, but that was back in November. Shortly after their success, they failed to live up to expectations during the Kuala Lumpur Major where they ended up last. Now the team is almost complete and will soon head out into the open qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 11 where the prize pool stands at $1 million. Whether Tigers would manage to find the proper synergy before the start of the qualifiers on January 24, remains to be seen.
