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.

The team, however, would disappoint with an early departure from the tournament at bottom half, and Hao and Mu would retire from competitive play shortly after while Chuan would take a break from Dota. The team would then promote Newbee.Young members Sccc and Uuu9 as well as acquiring Chuan's former teammate, Faith in the process.

The team would suffer initial hiccups with international events like its bottom placing at the Boston Major, but the team continued to prevail over fellow Chinese teams in smaller events.

2017[edit]

Despite another bottom placing at Kiev Major, the team saw significant improvement in the next year, having earned at least Top 3 at multiple premier tournaments such as: ESL One Genting, DAC 2017 and MDL and outright winning both Galaxy Battles and the ZOTAC Cup.

The team's recovery would earn them their slot at The International 2017, where the team was able to eventually reach Grand Finals, only to be shot down by Team Liquid in a 3-0 stomp.

After TI7, the team would return to a highly mixed state, being able to take third at ESL One Hamburg but failing to pass three of the year's four minor qualifiers.

2018[edit]

2018 only sent the team further spiraling down with largely hit-or-miss results in the lead up to the next International. Though the team was able to take top four at both the Changsha Major and the Bucharest Major, the team would suffer bottom half placings at many other minors and majors throughout the season.

Nonetheless, the team's critical top four in two majors and its victory at ESL One Genting 2018 solidified its place in The International 2018. At the get-go, however, the team was quickly eliminated for a bottom placing at the tournament.

Subsequently, both Kaka and Kpii left the organization and were replaced by Inflame while the team continuously cycled through players for its Position 4. The team proved to only be a shell of its former self as it would fail in all the open qualifiers in the rest of the year, and would miss out the Chongqing Major, ESL One Katowice 2019 and the Bucharest Minor.

2019[edit]

The team continued to flounder throughout qualifiers for all the minor and majors in the following year. Their failure to qualify for Starladder, ESL One and MDL tournaments would mean that the team would be forced to eventually undergo Open Qualifiers to have its shot to even enter The International 2019. While the team would eventually pass Open Qualifiers, they once again fell at Closed Qualifiers, and the squad could only watch the The International as spectators.

The organization would, however, briefly sponsor the former members of the Forward Gaming roster after the organization collapsed just before TI9.

After its poor performances, Sccc finally departed from the squad while Moogy opted to go inactive once again, forcing the team to rebuild with Fonte, Aq and Wizard alongside Waixi and Faith. While the new team would still be able to hold its own in minor tournaments here and there, they were still unable to qualify for any of the DPC events heading into the next year.

2020 Matchfixing Scandals[edit]

While playing at the Chinese qualifiers for the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor Season 3 at February 17, 2020, suspicious behavior was noted during the Game 2 of their set with Avengersls, where the opposing team made obvious mistakes that led Newbee to eventually take the game back.

This situation was escalated further when both Xiao8 and Zhou, who were streaming the match, immediately believed and claimed the match to be fixed.

This was later followed by a shocking announcement on May 15, 2020, by both ImbaTV and the Chinese DOTA2 Professional Association, which revealed that the organization had been caught fixing games at CDA League Season 1 and ImbaTV's China Dota 2 Professional League Season 2.

While evidence was also submitted to Valve as well as Newbee's attempts to appeal, the organization was disqualified from these two leagues, membership of the Chinese DOTA2 Professional Association removed, and banned from any future events organized by ImbaTV, Mars Media and Chinese DOTA2 Professional Association.
