Because there can never be too many ice’s

The purpose of this blog post, other than to revive this blog and add to the content, is to announce that Chua Chee Cai “ice” (formerly from Ks, Orange and other prestigious Malaysian teams) and Ng Wei Poong “Yamateh” (who acquired fame back in DotA1 with his insane shadowfiend play and his tongue in cheek remarks like “GG BACK U”) are officially part of the Team Zenith roster for 2013.

The current line up has teamed together on several occassions – they were previously part of Kingsurf, Orange eSports and Scythe Gaming, to name a few

Says Daryl “iceiceice” Koh of the new additions, “I’m happy to be teaming with Yamateh and ice because their individual characters and attitude towards competitive gaming are the best a team could ask for. With them on the team, Zenith aims to win everything; be it a small tournament or the mecca of them all – The International 3.”

The line up has proven to be formidable, taking two 1st placings in the recent Flash DotA 2 League (out of a possible 3), taking 2nd position in the SEA League against teams from South East Asia and China and most recently winning the SteelSeries DotATalk Championship without dropping a single game.

Yamateh and ice are not just friends in real life, they’re sworn teammates, racking up countless wins through the years of teaming together.
