Over the last few days, roster changes have been abundant. T1 and Sparking Arrow Gaming
have joined in on the list of teams that have changed their rosters this week.
Sparking Arrow Gaming
For Sparking Arrow Gaming, position 5 Ru "RedPanda" Zhihao has left the team to join the new Chinese super stack 4 AM, and will be replaced by Xiao "XCJ" Chaojian. Ou "Op" Peng has moved from the team’s offlane to a coaching position and will be replaced by Su "Flywin" Lei.
Lastly, just over a week ago Zhong "圣子华炼" Liushuai better known as God-king, the previous captain and position 1 of Sparking Arrow Gaming left to join Royal Never Give Up. He will be replaced by Wang "J" Wenjun. It is unclear who the new captain of SAG will be. Their timeline for that decision is growing shorter, as their first match of China Dota2 Pro Cup is in only two days.
T1 has lost their position 1 Galvin "Meracle" Kang Jian Wen, as well as their coach Nicholas "xFreedom" Kelvin Ileto Lim. Both of these will be a significant hit to the team, as they were already struggling to find success, unable to get past top 4 in any tier 2 tournament. With that said, Joe Marsh, the CEO of T1 has tweeted that the team does not plan on disbanding. While things may look grim for T1 Dota fans, there is certainly hope for the future of this team.
