Newbee acquires ex-Forward Gaming roster for TI9

Just a few days ago, North American organisation Forward Gaming shut down operations, citing lack of funds, thereby rendering its DOTA 2 squad homeless, just before the biggest event of the year, The International.

The Forward Gaming DOTA 2 line-up had already qualified for TI, hence it was obvious that their line-up would have no trouble in finding a new organisation to call home.

But no one, in their wildest dreams, expected a premier Chinese organisation like Newbee to acquire the North American squad.

The ex-Forward Gaming squad will next be seen playing at The International, in Newbee colours.

Current Newbee.DOTA2 squad:

  • Yawar“YawaR” Hassan
  • Quinn “CCnC” Callahan
  • Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu
  • Arif “MSS-” Anwar
  • Johan “pieliedie” Åström
  • Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling (coach)
  • Jack “KBBQ” Chen (manager)
