A new Dota 2 team from Southeast Asia has risen from the ashes of previous teams. Team SMG has formed its Dota department around Michael "ninjaboogie" Ross Jr. and Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung, the organization announced today.

The new SEA team will compete in the next qualifiers for the Dota Pro Circuit 2021, hoping to reach the Superior Division of the regional league. And with a roster that includes both successful veterans and younger talents, the team looks like a promising addition to the field of competitors.

This move is part of a decision made by Singaporean singer and team Still Moving under Gunfire (SMG) founder JJ Lin, who is a huge Dota 2 fan.

"Dota 2 is a game I've been passionate about since I was a kid," said JJ Lin. "Today we're finally taking it to the pro level by announcing the Team SMG Dota 2 division, game on!"

SMG originally focused on Arena of Valor, but the team has since expanded to PUBG, Mobile Legends, and now Dota.

As for the team itself, Mushi is a legendary player, but he spent most of the last two years bouncing between teams. This will be an opportunity for him to have a stable team environment alongside other strong players.

Ninjaboogie is in a similar boat, as he left Mineski after his deep run at The International 2019 and was unable to find a new place to play outside of a brief stint with 032 from August to November. He and Mushi have played together before and they may do well in the upcoming qualifiers.

Cheng "vtFαded" Jia Hao showed promising results with Geek Fam in late 2018 but has since played for seven different teams. He last played for IO alongside Mushi, who will bring him on this new adventure.

Tue “ah fu” Chuan is another veteran player who is best known for his incredible play at TI7, where he helped lead LGD.Forever Young to third place. Muhammad “Neah666” Bin Jamil provides a wild card for the team, as he has been active on the SEA scene for years but has never played with a large squad before.
