by Juandi

HuatZai (HZ) have announced the addition of 17-year-old Chao “MAD” He to their squad on a trial basis as a replacement for Xu “Roninbaby” Peng.

HZ have been in search of their final puzzle since parting ways with Xu “Roninbaby” Peng starting January 1 this year as his loan has expired from Triumph Song Gaming (TSG). Roninbaby has been part of the Singaporean roster since September 2020, assisting the organization in achieving a variety of results. Of these, the most outstanding was a grand final run at Asian Legend Challenge League, and qualified for the eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Festival 2020 – Southeast Asia and Hyperion X OEL CS:GO Launch which both of them will kick off soon this month.
