PSG.LGD have announced their new Dota 2 lineup ahead of the upcoming DPC 2021 season. In a surprising move, the Chinese organization has decided to swap their carry player, Wang “Ame” Chunyu with Malaysian rival, Lai “Ahjit” Jay Son.
The news was first reported on the team’s Weibo account, which read, “We are thrilled to welcome Ahjit to our team. He is one of the most talented players we have ever seen and we have no doubt that he can help bring PSG.LGD to the top of the Dota 2 scene.”
Ahjit first became known in the scene playing for Fnatic in 2016, before moving on to different teams such as Warriors Gaming.Unity, Geek Fam, and most recently, Neon Esports. Through his career, he has shown to be a talented carry player with a deep hero pool and great mechanical skills.
On the other hand, Ame is a Dota 2 veteran who has played for PSG.LGD since 2017. He has been a core player for the team throughout most of his tenure, contributing to some of the team’s most significant victories. The reason for the sudden swap remains unclear, but fans are optimistic that Ahjit will be an excellent fit for the new squad.
The announcement comes as a surprise to many fans and analysts alike, as the PSG.LGD roster had not shown any significant weaknesses in their previous performances. However, fans are quick to point out that this could be a strategic move by the organization to shake things up and improve team dynamics.
The new PSG.LGD lineup includes an additional role swap, where assistant coach and former player, Zhang “xiao8” Ning, will be stepping in as the team’s new offlaner. The move is not without precedent, as Xiao8 has previously played the position and has shown promising performances.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming DPC season to see how the new PSG.LGD lineup will fare. The team has shown great resilience in previous years, consistently ranking high and making it to the top of international competitions. With this latest change, fans hope that PSG.LGD will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the Dota 2 scene.
