Two extremely experienced Dota 2 players Liu "Sylar" Jiajun and Lu "Fenrir" Chao are no longer part of the starting roster of Team Aster, as both of them decided to take a break from competitive scene. For the foreseeable future the team will be trying out new players – the TI6 champion Li "iceice" Peng will stand in as a semi-support, while the carry position will be taken by the member of the team’s second roster.
Team Aster was created last September by Xu "BurNIng" Zhilei, both Sylar and Fenrir have been playing for the team since its inception. The team managed to qualify for two major tournaments – The Kuala Lumpur Major and The Chongqing Major and placed 13-16th at both. The team also attended two ESL One events – in Hamburg they placed 5-6th and in Katowice they placed 7-8th. Lately the team failed to qualify for both DreamLeague Season 11 and StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor, as well as did not manage to make it through the open qualifiers for MDL Disneyland Paris Major.
