International 2 Champion Wong “ChuaN” Hock Chuan Returns to Dota 2 with Echo International
Wong “ChuaN” Hock Chuan, the champion of The International 2, is making a comeback in the world of Dota 2 as a member of the mixed-nationality team, Echo International.
Echo International’s Lineup Revealed
Earlier today, Echo International’s lineup was officially registered on the Dota 2 team database. The team consists of Anathan “ana” Pham, formerly of OG, Grigoris “Keyser” Kallianiotis, former Immortals offlaner Lee “Forev” Sang-don, and Martin “Saksa” Sazdov, who was part of the TI6 runner-up iteration of Digital Chaos.
ChuaN Makes a Comeback
This marks ChuaN’s return to competitive play after taking a break. He left Chinese squad Vici Gaming in September last year, following a five-month stint where the team failed to qualify for any premier tournaments except for Galaxy Battles, where they replaced LGD Gaming.
ChuaN’s teammates all come from different backgrounds, with most of them recently leaving their previous teams. Ana, in particular, is widely recognized and highly decorated as a two-time Valve Major champion. This move also marks Ana’s return to active play since voluntarily leaving OG after TI7.
It remains to be seen whether this team will achieve significant success, but there is undoubtedly an interest in witnessing this group of veterans competing together.
