Newbee have updated their Dota 2 roster for the upcoming season with three new players, Lai "Fonte" Xingyu, Yin "Aq" Rui and Zeng "Faith" Hongda. Wen "Wizard" Lipeng and Yan "Waixi" Chao are the only two players of the former roster who remain in the team.
All three new players in the second half of the previous roster have been playing for Typhoon E-Sports Club, a Chinese team that failed to make it to the closed qualifiers for The International 2019 but emerged victorious at local tier-2 events China Dota2 Development League Season 1 and Asia Communication League Season 1.
Last season Newbee’s Chinese roster failed to qualify for The International 2019, so the organization acquired the former Forward Gaming North American roster which earlier had secured their spot at the event. The team placed 9-12th at TI9, its future remains unknown.
