Rumor: Ferrari_430 to join Team DK…but who is he replacing?

Rumor: Ferrari_430 to join Team DK…but who is he replacing?

| July 28, 2014

TI4 has barely been over a week, and already the post-TI Chinese shuffle seems to be taking off. Today’s news: Chinese Dota legend ZSMJ has apparently said on his stream that IG player Ferrari_430 is set to join Team DK.

It’s a move that would further strengthen an already-stacked DK team, but if true, the 430 move also raises questions. DK does have an open roster spot following LaNm’s retirement, but LaNm was a support player whereas Ferrari_430 is a core. His joining the team means that one of Mushi, iceiceice, or BurNing would likely have to move to support, or leave the team roster entirely.

Actually, the most plausible scenario might be that Ferrari_430 might be coming in to replace BurNing, who could then step into a coaching role for the team. There is some thought that BurNing does not want to retire before winning The International, but having failed again this year, BurNing would be nearly 28 years old again before he gets his next chance—that’s pretty old for a pro gamer. It’s possible he has decided he has a better chance of winning it as a coach, and 430 is being brought in to take his place on the team. That would mean DK will need to recruit another person to replace the retired LaNm in support, though.
