Team Aster was formed by the legendary Xu "BurNIng" Zhilei himself in September of this year for the new season. The team started the season with a failed, but optimistic run at the The Kuala Lumpur Major qualifier, coming third after losing twice to its subsequent victor, PSG.LGD. Newbee, on the other hand, continue their streak of disappointments, despite going through a second roster change since their loss at the Major qualifier.
