Arguably one of the hottest free agents in the Winter Shuffle, Ohaiyo finally finds a new home in China, via LGD.Forever Young.

For some time, former Fnatic foreplayer Ohaiyo has been trying out on different teams, most recently with the failed rendition of the blast to the past Dream Team New Beginning. With his last attempt to form a team from scratch failing to come into fruition, Ohaiyo decides to join a team that needed some revamping.

That team is LGD.Forever Young, the Chinese squad that finished third in The International 7. LFY had been struggling in the current season, and so it became apparent that changes have to be made if the team were to directly be invited to The International 8.

Three members of LFY were released, including its former captain, ddc. The other two were Op and Inflame, who are now currently teamless. ddc, on the other hand, has been loaned by LFY to VGJ.Thunder, replacing Ayo.

To replace the three members, Super and Yao were recalled to return to LFY once again. Super was playing for Invictus Gaming for a short while this year, before he was called upon to play with LFY again. Yao, on the other hand, returns to LFY for the first time since for almost a year.

Finally, Ohaiyo will be joining the team as their new offlaner. This will be the first time Ohaiyo will be playing for a Chinese organization since his short stint with EHOME back in 2015.
