Invictus Gaming (IG), a strong Chinese Dota 2 team, has announced its talented roster for the upcoming ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 tournament. Determined to regain their dominance, IG has assembled a star-studded lineup for the Chinese qualifier.
Leading the charge for IG are Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang and Du “Monet” Peng, renowned players known for their exceptional skills. NothingToSay, formerly a midlaner for LGD Gaming, brings strategic prowess and versatility, while Monet, previously a carry player for Team Aster, adds a formidable presence.
IG’s decision to form this strong roster comes after challenges in the Dota Pro Circuit’s Chinese regional leagues in 2022 and 2023. Despite setbacks, the team is determined to bounce back. In the TI 2022’s Chinese regional qualifiers, IG narrowly missed out on a spot in the world championship tournament, finishing fourth. In TI 2023’s Chinese regional qualifiers, they managed a 5th-6th place finish.
To further strengthen their lineup, IG has recruited Thiay “JT-” Jun Wen, a former offlaner for Xtreme Gaming, who has shown great potential and versatility. The team has also secured the services of free agent support duo Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao and Yap “xNova” Jian Wei, who have demonstrated their skills and synergy. With these additions, IG’s new roster is widely regarded as the strongest team in China.
As IG prepares for the Chinese qualifier for ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023, fans anticipate their performance in this high-stakes tournament with a $1 million prize pool. The competition will attract top teams from around the world, providing a true test for IG’s revamped lineup.
However, IG will face tough competition from other dominant teams in China and formidable international opponents. Despite the challenges, IG is determined to prove themselves and secure their spot in the main event of ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023.
Behind the scenes, IG’s management has made significant changes to support the team’s success. Gao “@dogf1ghts” Tianpeng, a former IG.Vitality support player, has been appointed as the team’s coach, bringing his extensive knowledge and strategic insights. This move demonstrates IG’s commitment to continuous improvement and adaptation in the ever-evolving Dota 2 landscape.
Recent performances have showcased IG’s resilience and determination. They finished third in the Spring Tour, solidifying their place in Division II. In the Winter Tour regional league of the 2023 season, IG faced challenges and finished sixth, but their unwavering determination was evident. The team’s fortunes turned around in the Summer Tour, securing a second-place finish and earning a promotion back to Division I for the 2023 season. This achievement highlights their growth and sets the stage for their upcoming endeavors in ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023.
As IG’s strong roster prepares for their debut, the team aims to make a lasting impact in the Chinese qualifier. Their ultimate goal is to secure a spot in the main event of ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023, where they will have the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the world and potentially claim the championship title.
With IG’s talented lineup, the guidance of their new coach, and their unwavering determination, fans and analysts eagerly await the team’s performance in the upcoming tournament. Will IG rise to the occasion and reclaim their dominance in the Dota 2 scene? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: IG’s new roster is fully prepared to make a lasting impact in the Chinese qualifier for ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023.
