Yesterday it was announced that the Southeast Asia team, Tigers, had lost two of their players – Lai ‘Ahjit’ Jay Son and Muhammed ‘inYourdreaM’ Rizky. Earlier today a Tweet from the team teased a new player being added and just a few moments ago it was confirmed who that player would be.
Today, we want to reveal the 4th member of Tigers. Please welcome Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung who will carry the banner and be part of the Tigers family. With years of experience in esports and titles under his belt, no doubt he will be a strong addition to the Team. #roartigers. pic.twitter.com/R6Nd0rVkPF

A huge name in both the SEA Dota 2 scene and known throughout the community too would be the new addition to Tigers in the form of Chai ‘Mushi’ Yee Fung. Having played in a number of Valve’s prestigious TI events and with tons of experience in Dota 2, Mushi should be a vital addition to Tigers. Having last played for Mineski, Mushi was able to assist the team to some huge victories but since leaving in November last year, he has been without a solid team.
With his time on Mineski starting in early 2017, Mushi helped the team to take the PGL Bucharest Open and come out victorious at the Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018. Prior to that he was a part of the mighty Fnatic squad which placed 4th at The International 2016 and performed admirably at a plethora of Valve Majors too. While he would be on Team DK as well as Orange Esports through 2 TI’s prior to his time at Fnatic, Mushi was unfortunately never able to lift the Aegis of Champions for himself. But now he rejoins a SEA squad, hoping to turn around the problems that face Tigers since their victory at DreamLeague Season 10.
With Mushi now a part of the squad, Tigers are up to 4 players and it would seem that a fifth could be announced quite soon to complete their team.
