After the end of The International 6, Chuan left Newbee and took a pause from his competitive career. In January 2017 he joined Newbee’s third squad, Newbee Boss, created for pure entertainment purposes.
In April he was rented to Vici Gaming, and with them played in multiple qualifiers, but the results were lacking. The team only reached the 5th place at the Chinese qualifiers for TI7.
A month later, Vici Gaming played at Mars Dota 2 League without him, and Chuan officially dropped the roster on September 6th.
The Perfect World Masters is the first Chinese Minor and will be held in Shanghai, from November 19th to 26th. The regional qualifiers will take place in the next weeks.
