Newbee.Young – TI6 Chinese Open Qualifiers second round winners
Newbee was put together in early 2014, during the Chinese reshuffle that happened prior to The International 4. It was originally nicknamed “Dream Team 2” until February 2014, when the season transfer window was closed and the team was officially named Newbee. Newbee went on to win The International 4 in Seattle. In October 2014, Newbee Young – the organization’s youth squad, was established and placed seventh at the National Electronic Sports Tournament 2014, only two weeks later.
A stroke of luck came the young team’s way. As Invictus Gaming, qualified for the Frankfurt Major through the Chinese Qualifier, the organization has extended the invitation to replace them to the team that was next in line – Newbee Young. The team had come in third place, following Invictus Gaming and Newbee.
Newbee.Young came in last place at the event unfortunately but took eighth place at the Dota 2 Radiant and Dire Cup and third at the Shanghai Dota 2 Open.
With the great Chinese roster reshuffle in March, Meng “Xiao2lei” Lei and Zhang “le” Xuanhao moved to Newbee.Young from the main squad.
Newbee Young roster:
Tan “JiaJia/Aria” Lijia
