Two former Fnatic players, veteran Mushi and versatile kYxY will be standing-in for the Malaysian team Mineski-X for the upcoming Kiev Major.
In an announcement on their official Facebook page, Mineski-X revealed the lineup that they will be playing with for the upcoming Kiev Major. With Joel Chan â€œXtinctâ€ Zhan Leong being the sole player remaining in the team from their former roster that consisted of Kecik Imba, zaiâ€™, WinteR and InisidiousC, the other four players are new-comers to the team.
Former Warriors Gaming.Unity and White Fries Gaming offlaner Chua â€œKaNGâ€ Soon Khong will be joining Mineski-X. A new face, Alacrity, will also be joining the new line-up. Along with Xtinct, the three will be the new core lineup of Mineski-X.
Joining Mineski-X just for the Kiev Major, Chai â€œMushiâ€ Yee Fung and Lee â€œkYxYâ€ Kong Yang will be joining the team as stand-ins. There had been a lot of speculation on where Mushi would be going to after leaving Fnatic. Would Mineski-X finally give the Dota2 veteran what he is looking for? Meanwhile kYxY, also a former Fnatic player himself, who has most recently played with White Fries Gaming, is one of the most versatile players out there, being able to play any role and is notable for his deep hero pool.
The question remains on whether or not this team would be able to hold up. The team will most likely join the tournament via the SEA Qualifiers, and the competition is tough. We could only hope for the best for them.
