Burning retires


Formed in 2010, Team DK, dubbed the "Galacticos" of the Chinese scene, is one of the strongest Chinese DotA teams.

Team DK's roster for The International 2014: X!!, BurNIng, iceiceice, LaNm and Mushi.
Team DK's roster for The International 2013: X!!, BurNIng, Super, rOtk and QQQ.
Team DK's roster for The International 2012: Super, Zippo, LongDD, BurNIng and rOtk.



Coming into 2014 Team DK managed to obtain their first premier Dota2 title in the WPC ACE League 2013 by defeating Invictus Gaming 4:3 in a monumental comeback after being 0:3 down in the Grand Final. DK went on to win Starladder Season 9, defeating Team Empire 3:0. They did not drop a single game in the offline finals.

LaNm retired from professional Dota2 on July 22, 2014. [1] BurNIng announced his retirement on August 17th.[2] iceiceice, Mushi, and MMY left the squad on August 26th. [3]


DK had some good results in 2013, with a 2nd place in the Dota 2 Super League being the most notable. After The International 2013, where DK finished 5-6th, the team roster was completely reshuffled as everyone bar captain BurNIng left the team.[4] The manager of Team DK and xiao8 from LGD confirm that Mushi from Orange has moved to Team DK.[5] Team DK confirms new team lineup consisting of, BurNIng, Mushi, iceiceice, LaNm and X!!. [6]


Facing rising challenges from reinvigorated powerhouses like iG and LGD and suffering from internal issues, DK failed to maintain its form during 2012, falling in various finals to rivals like LGD and iG and even failing to proceed to the playoff stage of the ACE league.

DK's progression into Dota 2 was also fraught with peril, having shown consistently subpar form after their rather disappointing debut despite having been the first team to be invited to The International 2012.

However, during the month of August, the internal issues seemed to have resolved themselves and the team appears resurgent, though no longer dominant, as they fought iG to a close 2-3 during the G-League 2012 finals as well as vastly improved their performance in Dota 2 tournaments, defeating Tongfu in the It's Gosu Mini Madness finals 3-0.

In early October DK underwent roster changes, with LongDD leaving to TongFu and Zippo leaving the team. X!! and QQQ from EHOME joined their old teammate BurNIng on DK.


DK was undoubtedly the greatest beneficiary of the Great Chinese Shuffle, with the team suddenly signing Yaphets, Burning, and KingJ to assemble a star-studded lineup quickly dubbed the "Galacticos" of the DotA scene. Despite the infusion of star power, the team was unable to perform to expectations as pressure mounted on the players, leading to the eventual retirement of Yaphets and BenZ continuation of the slump as veterans like KSSSSS also fled the sinking ship.

However, with the addition of living legend LongDD, Burning's continued determination to "get up where he fell", as well as the growth of Super and RotK, DK claimed the dominance that was its birthright. Fielding lineups centered upon "pushing cores" like Syllabear and Lycanthrope and re-introducing jungling into the Chinese meta, DK was able to dominate the scene during the latter half of 2011 much like EHOME had done in 2010, scoring victory after victory and finally solidifying Burning's title as the Best Carry in the Universe.

DK was invited to the first international but was unable to make it due to Roster Changes and Passport Issues.
