Vici Gaming have re-branded their "Potential" squad to VG-R or Vici Gaming Reborn along with the announcement of the new roster for VG's secondary Dota 2 team.
The most notable additions are Xu "fy" Linsen and Liang "DDC" Faming. The former of course comes from Vici Gaming's main squad where he has been a support duo with Lu "Fenrir" Chao since 2012. DDC has been with LGD-Gaming for most of his career, with the exception of stints on both LV Gaming and EHOME between 2014 and 2015.
The fact that these two players are shuffling around, after having been with their original teams more or less since the early days of Dota 2 is a perfect showcase of the kinds of drastic moves the Chinese scene is making in this latest roster shuffle period.
The rest of the team is made up by two original VG.P players Yang "END" Pu (aka Zyf) and Zhou "Yang" Haiyang. The third player is relatively new to the competitive scene. Wang "NoNo" Xin is a pubstar turned CDEC.Avenger mid laner and he is the final new member.
Notably, VG-R have also announced their coach alongside the new roster. Tong "Mikasa" Junjie, who has most recently has been the coach of LGD-Gaming, will be the coach for the Reborn squad.
Vici Gaming Potential never made much of a name for themselves in tournaments but now with two strong and experiences players on the squad as well as a seasoned coach, they may be able to make an impact.
The full VG-R roster is:
|Yang "END" Pu||1|
|Wang "NoNo" Xin||2|
|Zhou "Yang" Haiyang||3|
|Xu "fy" Linsen||4/5|
|Liang "DDC" Faming||4/5|
