Joins iG to fill BurNIng's shoes, also changes nickname
September 6, 2017
In a release on weibo, iG confirmed that END would be joining the team in place of BurNIng and changing his nickname to GazEoD.
ANALYSIS
GazEoD first came into the spotlight in 2015 when he played for EHOME and placed 5th-6th at The International 2015. Since then, he has spent the majority of his career with Vici Gaming. GazEoD achieved some notable results, but no huge tournament wins in his career. His move to iG places him under a lot of pressure to fill BurNIng's spot, but GazEoD is a capable player and should serve as a positive addition to the team.

Steps down from iG
September 6, 2017
In a release on weibo, the iG esports club announced that BurNIng would be leaving the team to take a break from competition.
ANALYSIS
BurNIng is perhaps the most famous Chinese Dota 2 player of all time, with a career spanning back almost 10 years. Despite being among the best players in China for most of his career, BurNIng never managed to secure the ultimate goal, an International victory. BurNIng is also one of the oldest competing professional players at 29 years old, and it's unclear if he will return to a profession team or transition into a coaching or analysis role.
Team Secret's new offlaner
September 5, 2017
Team Secret announced on Tuesday via Twitter that Fata would be joining the team in the offlane role.
ANALYSIS
Not unfamiliar with the solo lane, Fata will be changing from the middle lane to the offlane for Team Secret, which may raise some concerns as his recent stint with Cloud9 was less than inspiring. Fata may take some time to adjust to his new role, but with MidOne and Ace comfortable in multiple laning positions we could see Team Secret swapping their cores around to create confusion.
Picked up by Team Secret
September 5, 2017
Team Secret announced via Twitter on Tuesday that Ace would be joining the team as their new carry for the upcoming season.
ANALYSIS
Ace who has spent most of his career playing in an all-Danish lineup never found much success with the exception of being picked up by Cloud9 last season. Ace should be a nice addition to Team Secret and will undoubtedly shock people with improved play over the course of time.

PPD was amongst many old faces on the roster announced on Twitter by Ludwig 'Zai' Wahlberg on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS

He stepped down as CEO of Evil Geniuses at the same time that Zai left the squad to become the captain of this new, yet to be named, squad. PPD is one of the best captains to have ever played the game and expectations will be high for his team in the upcoming season.
