Team Aster Benched Dstones and Hired Q as a Coach
Team Aster, a Chinese Dota 2 team created by a legendary player Xu "BurNIng" Zhilei, announced changes in their roster. First, their middle lane player Deng "Dstones" Lei has been benched and will temporarily play for the team’s second roster. He will be replaced by Gao "loveyouloveme" Yuan, who lately used to play for For The Dream. Second, Fu "Q" Bin has joined the team as a new coach, replacing on this position BurNIng himself.
The roster was announced on September 10th and included Liu "Sylar" Jiajun, Deng "Dstones" Lei, Lin "Xxs" Jing, Ye "BoBoKa" Zhibiao and Lu "Fenrir" Chao. They managed to make it through the first open qualifiers for The Kuala Lumpur Major, with later placing 3rd in the closed one, qualifying for the major. The team also qualified for ESL One Hamburg, where the team placed first in Group A with the map score of 9-1, but in the playoffs they lost both series against Vici Gaming (1:2) and paiN Gaming, placing 5-6th at the event.
Next week the team will participate in The Kuala Lumpur Major. The team will lose 40% of DPC Points in case they will perform with a stand-in.
