ViCi Gaming Reborn
In March 2015 ViCi Gaming announced the addition of a new youth squad called ViCi Gaming Potential. The team participated in several major and premier events such as VPGame Pro League, ECL 2015 Dota 2 Spring, i-league Season 3, G-League 2015 and ECL 2015 Dota 2 Autumn but were never really able to make any solid achievements or success. They also participated in minor events, with a few third place finishes and some regional qualifiers.
Through the last year the team has been low profile and playing under the radar.
On March 19th, the organization then announced the team would be getting a big makeover -revamping the roster and rebranding the team. Xu “fy” Linsen and Liang “DDC” Faming were added to the mix while the team welcomed newcomer Wang “NoNo” Xin. Yang “Zyf” Pu moved from the substitute role and Zhou “Yang” Haiyang retainrd his position.
The squad is also being coached by Tong “mikasa” Junjie, all in efforts to make improvements for the upcoming Manila Major and TI6 season.
