Mushi joins Zenith [Updated]

posted by Sun_Tzu, 1 year ago
Since The International 2 and the break-up of the former roster, sg Zenith has been a team with an uncertain future. Especially with team captain sg Daryl 'iceiceice' Koh having spent much of his time subbing for the South-East Asian powerhouse my Orange and with sg Nicholas 'xFreedom' Lim standing in for my MUFC, it seemed as if the players were abandoning ship.



Previous roster of Zenith, left to right: LuX, xFreedom, K-I-N-G, xy-, iceiceice


This all takes a sharp turn in a different direction, as a familiar face appeared on the teams roster page just recently, namely Malaysian legend and former Orange player my Yee Fung 'Mushi' Chai . Since Oranges third place finish at G-1 Champions League, Mushi had been conspicuously missing from Orange during the G-League Season 2 qualifiers, GEST: The Challenge and The Asia, prompting much speculation, which now seems to have been answered.

We reached out to iceiceice, and while he did not wish to make a statement, he did confirm for us that Mushi would be joining the team on a mutual trial basis, as well as the departures of the two players who were added on after The International 2, namely sg Alan 'K-I-N-G' Ter and sg Patrick 'LuX' Kwan. This leaves Zenith with a four man roster, with the fifth member to be added during the "next two months".

Update:

Orange has chimed in with further details about the future of their roster and Mushi, with iceiceice also further stating that things are still in a fairly fragile state and may end up changing. The statement from Oranges facebook page reads as follows:

We like to clarify that it is not yet confirm that Mushi will join Zenith. Orange Esports is fine tuning our DotA2 roster to deliver better results in 2013 for our fans and sponsors. Official announcement will be made over the next 2 weeks. Cheers!

My guess is they'll take their time and try out different candidates, and that there is some event they have in mind which is at least 2 months off. No point in rushing into anything. But this is pure speculation.

There's a difference between what you know, and what is official. And if it's not official, then we have to wait until it becomes official, or until we can get someone involved to confirm it to us and say we're free to talk about it.

You say we're slow, I say we confirmed it before the others did.
