Keen Gaming completed their roster for the upcoming competitive season with a few new additions, including the recently departed from Newbee, Hu “Kaka” Liangzhi.
Kaka will be joined in the support lines by Song “dark”‘ Runxi, who will be moving in the offlane in order to accommodate a new addition to the team. Coming from EHOME on a loan contract, Ren “eLeVeN” Yangwei will start the new season under the KG banner. Keen Gaming’s new carry is Huo “sss” Xiaolei, a top 30 ranked player on the Chinese Dota 2 leaderboards.
sss has been grinding his way towards higher ranked teams for nearly three years now and he previously played for Vici Gaming Potential, EHOME.Luminosity, FTD Club B and C among others. He was recruited by Keen Gaming shortly after the team failed to qualify for TI8 and has already played his first official matches with KG in the JJB Cup – The China Hope Series, where Keen placed second.
From the old roster, Keen kept just their mid laner and their captain, Dark. But Zhai Jingkai choose to change his nickname from 荧, which roughly translates as tiny fire, to a simple line symbol.
Keen Gaming roster from position 1 to 5:
– Huo “sss” Xiaolei

– Hu “kaka” Liangzhi
– Song “dark” Runxi
Keen Gaming will continue to work with Wu “Fyms“ Junyin,g who will resume on both coaching and team managerial duties while Chen “TheOne” Peng is the team leader.
