The players that used to play for the North American organization Forward Gaming, which was recently terminated, have joined the Chinese organization Newbee and will perform under their brand at the upcoming The International 2019.
The roster qualified to The International 2019 through the North American regional qualifier. A week later Forward Gaming was terminated due to financial issues. It remains unknown, whether the players will represent Newbee only at TI9 or continue to play for them afterwards. The Chinese roster of Newbee failed to make it through the regional qualifier.
