The fun that is the post TI9 roster shuffle is only getting better and this time it is Chinese Dota 2 team Keen Gaming that has been hit. Depending on how you look at it, the changes can either be big or minimal.

The first change happened earlier this month with Malaysian Dota 2 player Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung joining the team. Mushi has been in the Dota 2 esports scene since 2011 as part of teams like Orange Esports, Fnatic, and Mineski, among others. Prior to joining Keen Gaming, Mushi was part of Geek Fam.

Over the weekend, the team experienced its biggest change, so to speak, with a number of players being moved around. The first change involved Wang "old chicken" Zhiyong and Ren "eLeVeN" Yangwei. It wasn't that big of a change, since these two players were originally on loan from EHOME. However, both old chicken and eLeVen have moved back to EHOME under inactive status. With that, Jiang "天命" An also made the return to Keen Gaming from being on loan with EHOME.

Meanwhile, joining the team is Liu "Kamma" Chang. Kamma had been on teams like VGJ.Thunder and Team Sirius. He joins Keen Gaming after being on trial with Team Aster.

Joining the team as well is Zhang "LaNm" Zhicheng, who is going to serve as the coach. LaNm had previously served as coach for both EHOME and Vici Gaming. LaNm also played for those teams. For the last DPC season, LaNm played under Royal Never Give Up.

With this, Keen Gaming is now composed of:

  • Liu "Kamma" Chang
    • Position 1
  • Zhai "一" Jingkai
    • Position 2
  • Song "dark" Runxi
    • Position 3
    • Team Captain
  • Jiang "天命" An
    • Position 4
  • Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung
    • Position 5
  • Zhang "LaNm" Zhicheng
    • Coach

During The International 2019, Keen Gaming didn't fare that well. During the Group Stage, Keen Gaming managed to get the eighth spot and was not immediately eliminated. However, this meant that Keen Gaming dropped to the Lower Bracket. Here the group faced off against South American team Infamous. Infamous secured a victory, resulting in Keen Gaming's elimination.

It is interesting to see how the team will fare in the upcoming DPC Season considering that it has Mushi in a support role. Mushi had typically been going back-and-forth between playing support and midlane. In addition, it will be good to see how dark plays at Position 3.

Overall Keen Gaming has a lot of work to do, especially if the team wants to get on top of the Chinese Dota 2 scene.
