After finishing fourth with Team Aster at The International 11, Zeng “Ori” Jiaoyang has decided to put his mouse and keyboard away for good.
The Chinese organization announced the 27-year-retirement old’s last night.
According to ONE Esports, Aster thanked Ori for contributing his years of experience and exciting performances to the team while respecting his decision to retire.
Team Aster needs a new midlaner for the Dota Pro Circuit 2023 because of Ori’s absence.
Up until Ori’s addition, various iterations of the Team Aster roster had achieved success domestically but had struggled abroad.

The former midlaner for Vici Gaming brought championship experience to Aster, aiding the company in this year’s highest-ever Major and TI placings.
At TI11 and the PGL Arlington Major, the team came in third and fourth, respectively.
Ori ended his six-year career, which included some of his most illustrious performances with Vici.
Together with Zhang “Paparazi” Chengjun, the two contributed to Vici becoming one of the scene’s most dependable and successful teams, taking home two Majors.
For the upcoming DPC season, Aster must now find a new midlaner.

The team hasn’t changed much in almost two years, aside from Ori and the support player.
The team once used Malaysian Ng “ChYuan” Kee Chyuan as its midlaner from 2019 to 2020 despite the organization’s strong preference for players from the area.
