About

Following The International 2013, the Chinese Dota 2 scene experienced a significant shakeup. Multiple top organizations saw their rosters pulled apart, and many never recovered from this sudden shift in the scene. That massive free agency pool, coupled with the abundance of talent in China, gave rise to multiple new organizations and saw a renaissance for established teams.

One of the teams that emerged in the aftermath of that shift was Newbee. Chatter about the organization started when longtime LGD Gaming captain Zhang "xiao8" Ning announced his departure from the team despite coming off a first-place finish in Dota 2 League Season 4. Rumors swirled about which teammates would be joining him, with many expecting a Chinese all-star team. Newbee was announced and fan expectations were met when xiao8 was surrounded with other proven players from TongFu and Invictus Gaming. 

The inaugural lineup posted mixed results in its first games in various qualifiers, but wowed fans in their live event debut by taking first place in the MDL 2014 Season without dropping a single map. Solid performances in other Chinese events followed, which earned Newbee a direct invitation to The International 2014.

The buildup to the event was mired for Newbee as allegations swirled that the team had refused to scrim with other Chinese teams that had Southeast Asian talent on their rosters, such as Team DK. Regardless, the team came up huge at TI4 and won the event in impressive fashion.

Despite that success, xiao8 left the team immediately after TI4. The team found success with its retooled roster and won four events before the end of 2014, but a poor showing at the Dota 2 Asia Championship kicked off a sharp decline in 2015. Precedent at the time saw the reigning TI champion receive a guaranteed direct invite, but the team posted a disappointing last-place finish at the event which sparked a major roster overhaul.

A new team was eventually finalized with the addition of former Invictus Gaming captain Wong "ChuaN" Hock Chuan. The new Newbee posted mixed but generally positive results including third place at the 2016 Manila Major and second at Epicenter 2016. The International 2016 was a disappointment however, which sparked another major shakeup.

A new team was revealed that included hot upstart talent Song "Sccc" Chun. Despite flopping in Valve-sponsored majors, the team was strong in other events. This earned them an invitation to The International 2017, where they finished in second place.

Newbee kept its roster intact in the following season, but the team couldn’t maintain its previous level of success. It posted mixed results throughout the 2017-2018 season and washed out of The International 2018 in short order.

Multiple roster changes followed, kicking off a period of extensive turnover. No combination of players yielded results during the 2018-2019 season, which eventually saw Newbee fail to qualify for The International 2019. The organization served as a one-off sponsor for a North American squad formerly sponsored by Forward Gaming, but another swift exit from TI followed. The North American squad split off after the event, while its Chinese roster was heavily shaken up following the departure of Sccc.

The new roster achieved generally poor results in the early goings of the 2019-2020 DPC season, failing to qualify for any event in the first three major cycles. After the DPC's suspension and pivot to online leagues in early 2020, the organization was accused by numerous Chinese Dota 2 institutions of fixing matches. The organization and all members of its roster were banned permanently from leagues hosted by the CDA, DPL, and ImbaTV.
