Amid all the qualifying controversy, Chinese side Newbee have announced that Xu 'Moogy' Han and He 'InFlame' Yongzheng have been benched, citing recent results.

The move comes after failure to qualify for any of the large events held so far this season, with Newbee now actively searching for replacements.

Following a poor showing at The International 2018, the side recruited Yan 'Waixi' Chao and Inflame in an attempt to shake things up. However, they went on to finish 5th-6th in qualifiers for The Kuala Lumpur Major, and third place in their attempt to claim the one slot for the DreamLeague Minor.

They also missed out on qualification for ESL One Hamburg 2018, and didn’t even make it to the closed qualifiers for The Chongqing Major. Now, after a failure to also make the closed qualifier for The Bucharest Minor, the organisation has acted swiftly.

The identities of the two new players is as yet unknown. The organisation’s next event will be the qualifiers for ESL One Katowice 2019.

What do you make of Newbee’s troubles this season?
