- ChYuaN’s departure comes at the end of a year which saw Alliance struggle in Dota 2
- The team has yet to announce who will come to the gap left by ChYuaN
- A likely candidate, however, could come from the tryout the team finished yesterday
Alliance part ways with Malaysian midlaner Ng “ChYuaN” Kee Chyuan after he spent the last year with the Swedish organization.
ChYuaN Departs Alliance
While many other teams experienced some type of roster reshuffling during the Dota 2 offseason, the Swedish team, Alliance was not one of them. The organization stayed with its lineup throughout last month, although they did open up tryouts for potential new players to showcase their skills.
However, since yesterday, Alliance has also joined the teams that will start the next competitive Dota 2 roster with a different composition. This is because they will have to find a substitute for midlaner Ng “ChYuaN” Kee Chyuan, whom the organization announced has left Alliance.
Being the only non-Swedish player in the team, ChYuaN spent the past year with Alliance, having been initially imported from Southeast Asia (SEA) with Remus “ponlo” Goh when the organization built a new team in December of 2022. Ponlo left the team in the summer which was a part of the many combinations that Alliance tried out throughout the year.
Unfortunately for them, the organization seemed to struggle quite a bit during the Dota 2 entire season. Their best achievement so far in 2023, after having played almost a dozen events, has been a third-place finish at the DPC Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 1: Division II, which was in February. Since then, the team’s performance has been consistently low.
What Happens Next?
With ChYuaN gone, the team will need to find someone who would replace the player in the middle lane, however, at the time of writing of this article, the organization has yet to announce anything. There is a possibility that a new player might be produced from the tryouts that concluded yesterday.
As we mentioned before, Alliance announced open Dota 2 tryouts which lasted from the start of December until the 7th. Interestingly, the squad’s current players, as well as ChYuaN, were also part of them, meaning they essentially had to defend their spots on the roster against would-be players who wanted to showcase their skills as well. It’s possible that ChYuaN’s performance at the event was not satisfactory and played a part in Alliance parting ways with him, although we do not know if this is the case.
On his part, ChYuaN simply thanked his now-former team for the time spent together but did not say that he is looking for a new organization.
