Zhang “Faith_bian” Ruida’s 2019 competitive year was plagued by injuries. At the very beginning of the year, he was forced to take a few months break after he suffered a humerus fracture in February during a photo shoot.
From February to May 2019, Faith_bian took the coaching duties for EHOME, while the team coach, Zhang “xiao8” Ning, stood in for him. And the history repeats itself as EHOME announced Xiao8 to join the active roster once again to replace Faith_bian, who needs to recover from a tendon inflammation this time.
EHOME are expected to play tomorrow, December 11 in the WESG China qualifiers. They also have a couple of games scheduled to be played this month in the China Dota2 Professional League Season 1. According to the official announcement made by EHOME on Weibo, Faith_bian is expected to return to the team by the end of this month.
EHOME don’t have any Dota Pro Circuit matches scheduled for the beginning of 2020, after they lost both the Major and the Minor qualifiers. Apart from the WESG qualifiers and the DPL matches from this month, the team is expected to play at the beginning of February 2019 in the third round of DPC qualifiers, counting for the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Major and the Minor preceding it.
EHOME current roster:
- Liu “Sylar” Jiajun
- Cheng “NothingToSay” Jin Xiang
- Zhang “xiao8” Ning (stand in)
- Zhao “XinQ” Zixing
- Zhang “y`” Yiping
