A legendary Chinese Dota side is receiving new life with Malaysia’s finest at the helm.
EHOME former manager Tang “71” Wenyi is resurrecting China’s first International finalists with highly valued free agent Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung. The lineup, confirmed by Chinese site Dota 2 Replays.net, features Chong “Ohaiyo” Xin Khoo, He “Inflame” Yongzheng, Liang “DDC” Faming, and a fifth member to be confirmed soon.
While the organization has been dissolved since 2012, lineups in 2010 and 2011 featured a cast of big-name Chinese players. Among them, Lei “X!!” Zhengrong, a member of Team DK‘s 2014 dream-team and Xu “Burning” Zhilei, considered by most to be the greatest Dota player of all time.
EHOME also made a name for themselves in 2011 when the squad managed an ascent to The International 2011 grand final, which they ultimately lost to European fan favorites Natus Vincere. Tang oversaw that side and plans to bring that experience to the table when the new lineup is completed.
The new team represents an appropriate destination for a player of Chai’s caliber. With a promising cast of proven contenders, EHOME’s rebirth is an ambitious addition to an already crowded Chinese scene.
