History[edit]

The International 2014[edit]

Newbee earned a direct invite to TI4 but struggled initially, finishing 7-8 in the second playoff phase before defeating LGD Gaming and Mousesports in tiebreakers for 9th place. However, they did not lose another series the rest of the way, first defeating Titan, Natus Vincere and Invictus Gaming to progress to the top 8 main event in the winners' side. At the main event, they defeated Vici Gaming and then Evil Geniuses to set up an all-Chinese grand final against Vici Gaming - which was also a matchup of two teams who enjoy forming deathballs. VG took the first game, but Newbee came back to take the next three and the $5 million first prize, including a 19-3 blitzing in the decisive Game 4 in just over 15 minutes.

Post-The International 2014-2015[edit]

After Newbee's victory, Xiao8 declared his retirement from the professional scene, and he was replaced by Rabbit. Despite the new swap, Newbee continued to exert dominance over 2014, winning WCA. In 2015, however, the team reached its first major disappointment as it placed last in the Dota 2 Asian Championships. With losses piling in, Hao eventually departed from Newbee with his position being taken by Rabbit, and the team welcoming in pubstar, June. The change in roster did not change the results, and the team continued to perform poorly going into the International 2015, where the defending champions finished at last place. The team later became subject to multiple changes with Hao returning to the team, Sansheng moving to inactivity as a sub, Chuan joining the team, and many other players coming and going such as chisbug, Xiao2Lei and Le. In the end, 2015 proved to be even more of a disappointment as the team hit last place at the Frankfurt Major and the World Cyber Arena.

2016[edit]

The team's fortune did not change going into the next year, as it would place 9th-12th at the Shanghai Major. After which, the team acquired Kaka and Kpii, and the team's fortune began changing. At the Chinese Qualifiers and Wild Card for EPICENTER, the team displayed a high level of dominance, earning a 29-0 streak from the qualifiers to the main tournament, ending 2nd overall. At the Manila Major, the team was undefeated for the entirety of China's qualifiers and the group stages, and the team ended the tournament at 3rd, having created a 21-0 streak. After the Major, the team earned a direct invite to The International 2016.
