Elephant’s Dota 2 Division Shuts Down, Team Disbands


Team Elephant, formerly a superteam within the Chinese Dota 2 community, has officially disbanded following the 2021 DPC season. The news was confirmed through multiple leaks involving a conversation that entirely discussed acquiring the team for another organization.

Team Elephant was one of five teams that represented China in The International 10 after winning the closed qualifying tournament. They finished in 13-16th place at the event, which was the worst performance among all participating Chinese teams (alongside Aster).

Team Elephant Removing Dota 2 Team

The team was formed in November 2020 through a joint venture made among a triad of multi-channel media companies. With a stacked lineup that featured multiple TI runner-ups, Elephant hoped to dominate Dota 2 esports just as their players did in the past.

Unfortunately, such a wish did not come to pass for the so-called superteam. Consecutive fifth-place finishes in the CN Upper Division, in addition to a couple of player swaps, prevented them from snatching any semblance of success.

Although Elephant said they would retain the TI10 squad for the new season, according to a leak, they looked to sign new players instead. This list included Jin “flyfly” Zhiyi, Ren “eLeVeN” Yangwei, and Yap “xNova” Jian Wei, all stellar players in their own right.
