Newbee.Boss has just been announced to be made up of players retired from various organizations – Zhang “xiao8” Ning, Wong “ChuaN” Hock Chuan, Luo “Ferrari_430” Feichi, the owner of Newbee – Zei9 and the first ever semi pro player to compete on a male professional team – axx.
Although the team is expected to be for entertainment and primarily focus on DAC 2017 Chinese qualifiers January 13-15, the roster is exciting on many levels for fans.
xiao8, had announced his retirement from LGD Gaming only several days ago. While he had retired before in the past, only to return after a short hiatus, his six day break seems to be the shortest to date.
ChuaN had retired from Newbee September 2016 while Ferrari_430 had retired post TI6 from Invictus Gaming, where he had spent his entire career starting in 2011.
Zei9 is the owner of Newbee organization – seemingly the first professional organization owner to be competing on such a high level. He is rumored to have about 6k MMR and been coached under Wang “SanSheng” Zhaohui – Veteran player and coach for Newbee.
axx is a female player who currently plays in CDEC Master league and has gained much respect from the community for her spectacular plays and performances. Typically she plays the carry role and is currently about 7k MMR – see one of her performances on Enigma captured below.
