The young Chinese players were led by the experienced xiao8. In January 2017, he once again announced his retirement. However, the line-up was not dissolved but continued to perform in an updated form. The team did not show much spark until the side qualified for TI7 where they impressed the audience, showing a high level of the game. LFY won the “bronze” and entered the new season without changes in the composition. However, the start of the season was so unsuccessful that in February 2018 the team underwent significant changes.

The highest achievement of the side this season is finishing the Perfect World Masters competition at the third place in 2017. However, in the previous season of the DPL, the side was victorious against Newbee in the grand finale. They will surely be aiming to accomplish same results this time around. They have every right to do, even though they are not in the best of forms. However, the unpredictability factor plays a great role for the Chinese Dota. LGD Gaming The Chinese team LGD for several years is one of the strongest in the world. The first composition for Dota from LGD Gaming appeared in early January 2010. However, the most efficient team gathered after TI1, when the talented captain xiao8 stood at the helm. The team was often played by the best players in China. ZSMJ, Sylar, Yao, DDC and other high-profile names the team owes its fame and results. At TI2, LGD Gaming seemed invincible: They finished the group stage without defeats, but in the finals of the Winners they lost to Na’Vi. As a result, the team took only third place. Nevertheless, the team retained leadership in the region up to TI3, where the 9-12th place was regarded as a failure. Followed by changes in the composition, and in February 2014 LGD Gaming left the main “brain” of the team – xiao8. Later, he returned to the team to bring the side to third place at TI5. After the final withdrawal of xiao8 as the head of the team. LGD Gaming could not return to its previous glory for about a year, until TI7. LGD Gaming finished the TI7 at 4th place, losing to Team Liquid in the lower bracket. This was their highest achievement for the last eight months. However, quite recently the side has finished the DAC at second place losing to Mineski in the final. After this achievement, the side has jumped to eighth place in DPC ranking with 540 points.
