Yao "Yao" Zhengzheng is a professional Dota player who is currently playing for LGD Gaming. He is known for his versatility.

Biography[edit]

Yao (previously known as XiaoD) began his professional career in September 2010 playing with Dream alongside DD, Xiao8, Li and Crystal.[1] In early 2011 he took a break from competitive gaming due to study commitments, but later returned for a short period with Nirvana.cn.[1] During his time with Nirvana.cn he rotated between both a ganker and a support role.[2]

Dota 2[edit]

In August 2011 Yao joined LGD Gaming alongside Xiao8, DDC and DD.[3] Prior to and during The International 2012 Yao played the solo mid position often as Invoker, Queen of Pain and Dragon Knight. Following TI2 he transitioned into the solo hardlane position, with Xiao8 taking over the solo mid. Occasionally Yao will return to the solo mid position, notably on Brewmaster.
