After vtFaded departed from EHOME, the team confirmed yesterday that NothingToSay would be joining the squad. Now, there is another addition, after 897 was suddenly removed from the team too.
EHOME’s Major progress was extremely lacking and after being eliminated fairly early on in the playoffs it seemed as though most of the blame was pushed onto the position 1 and 2 players; Tang ‘897’ Zhirui and Cheng ‘vtFaded’ Jia Hao. After a quick trip home from MDL Chengdu, vtFaded announced that he would be departing from the team’s active roster before yesterday we learned that he would be going on loan to Alpha x Hashtag. With this move, EHOME brought in Cheng ‘NothingToSay’ Jin Xiang and that seemed to be the end of things, until this morning when the Dota 2 Major and Minor registration page confirmed that 897 had been removed from the team’s roster.
In a post on Weibo a short time ago, the EHOME organisation had the following official announcement:
After the negotiation with Team Aster, Liu ‘Sylar’ Jiajun, former player for Team Aster transfers to EHOME as position 1. After the negotiation with AxH Esports Club, Cheng ‘NothingToSay’ Jin Xiang, former player for AxH transfers to EHOME as position 2 and Cheng ‘vtFαded’ Jia Hao, former player for EHOME is loaned to AxH. Tang ‘897’ Zhirui, former player for EHOME, will temporarily take a rest for personal adjustments.
We are thankful for the efforts and devotions vtFαded and 897 have made to the team. We hope vtFαded can start a brand new journey in AxH, and create a new place together with his teammates; we hope 897 can make fine personal adjustments and return to the tournaments as soon as possible.
We also hope Sylar and Nothingtosay can bring new changes to the team, so we can have a better performance in the future.”Weibo
As seen above, EHOME also confirmed that Sylar would be rejoining the roster in the position 1 role. Having not played under the EHOME banner since early in 2017, Sylar will now return to a very different roster.
The full new EHOME squad now is:
- Liu ‘Sylar’ Jiajun
- Cheng ‘NothingToSay’ Jin Xiang
- Zhang ‘Faith_bian’ Ruida
- Zhao ‘XinQ’ Zixing
- Zhang ‘y’ Yiping
We will most likely get to see this squad in action for the first time at the upcoming regional qualifiers for the next Minor and Major of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit Season.
