Yesterday, TiltReport broke the news that Ohaiyo has been dropped by his current team, LGD Forever Young and ironically, Inflame, whom he was replacing, was accepted back into the team. The roster shuffle came after LGD Forever Young finished in last place in the Bucharest Major and the whole matter seemed suspiciously related to each other. According to VPEsports, LGD Forever Young also “failed to take the one spot available for the Chinese region for the DreamLeague Minor” and such results clearly spell trouble for the team, especially Ohaiyo, who had mentioned that he was "the weakest link” in the team, beside having some communication issues as well.

Thus, in terms of stats and looking at things in the long-term way, it’s not incredibly surprising that the Chinese team decided to drop Ohaiyo and re-accept Inflame back into the team.
Here is the LGD Forever Young’s announcement on Weibo, regarding the roster changes:
According to TiltReport’s translated excerpt:
"LGD Forever Young's overall performance after the roster change has been poor. We failed to qualify for DreamLeague and our results at PGL Bucharest was also disappointing. After careful consideration by our management and players, LGD Forever Young is now making the following changes: Former LGD Forever Young player, He "Inflame" Yongzheng, will return to the team. Due to poor team chemistry, Khoo “Ohaiyo” Chong Xin will leave the team.
We are very grateful to Ohaiyo for all his effort in LFY. He is a steady and strong player who has proven himself in several international events, and we hope he will be back in the scene as soon as possible. If any team is interested in him, feel free to contact us directly."
Hence, LGD Forever Young’s new roster are:
– Du “Monet” Peng
– Xie “Super” Junhao
– He “Inflame” Yongzheng
– Tue “Ah Fu” Soon
– Yao “Yao” Zhengzheng
If you’re part of the Dota 2 community, what do you think about this entire situation? Which team do you think Ohaiyo should be joining next?
