Due to schedule conflicts Serenity had to drop from Betway Asian Dota 2 League, an online tournament overlapping with WSOE#6: Serenity’s Destiny. Their place was taken by Team Aster, who for the past few months have been constantly shuffling.

At first, it seemed like Aster had a mid-lane problem or a cohesion issue to fix between their cores. In just three months they swapped three mid laners (Dstones, loveyouloveme, Mushi), but the results didn’t improve. After the disastrous performance in the MDL Disneyland® Paris Major China Open Qualifier where they got eliminated “by a team of nobodies,” as Xu “BurNIng” Zhilei bluntly put it, Aster’s two veteran players Liu “Sylar” Jiajun and Lu “Fenrir” Chao also left the team. Following their departure, Aster’s founder took the time to talk to his stream followers and gave a couple of insights at what’s going on with the team. It was at the end of March when he was still looking for a support and a carry and, in the meantime, it seems that he also has to look for another mid-laner.

Aster’s participation in the Betway Asian Dota 2 League revealed that Mushi’s trial came to an end. In his place, the team will play with Peng “88” Jin, a young mid laner who was nurtured at BurNIng’s secondary team Flaming Cyborg Alpha. He played briefly with Aster at WESG 2018 and next to him it was another teammate of his from the secondary squad, namely Weiwei “Amazons” Liu. Both of them will be now playing for the next few weeks at Aster. While the roster is not to be regarded as the final one, Aster’s line-up from position 1 to 5 is:

  • Dong “HMX” Jingluo
  • Peng “88” Jin
  • Lin “Xxs” Jing
  • Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao
  • Weiwei “Amazons” Liu

During his stream from last night, BurNIng has also revealed a couple of new things about the players he worked with at Aster. The B God mentioned that Fu “Q” Bin who was their position five player just a few days ago, wouldn’t play competitively anymore, or at least for a while. He also said that the Chinese legend Sylar, who at the end of March entered a competitive break as well, will return to the scene soon but he will play support, “position 4 most likely.”
