Hao fans are given a glimpse of hope for the possibility of him returning to competitive DOTA 2 since his greatest achievement was winning The International 4.
In the TI6 shuffle Newbee post listed as having a serious player crisis, three team veterans, Chen ‘Hao’ Zhihao, Zhang ‘Mu’ Pan and Wong ‘ChuaN’ Hock Chuan announced their retirement. On April 19 of this year, captain Newbee made a small but emotional post announcing his decision to step down for at least the next six months: “I will rest for half a year, or maybe forever. TI, I won it, I lost it, and now that is all in the past. This year, I have let the fans who supported me disappointed, I am very sorry, hopefully you (fans) will get used to the tournament without me, and I also hope that you will continue to support me.“Hao said at that time.
The new Newbee has been doing very well so far with their 2 talents who are playing really amazingly namely, Xu ‘uuu9‘Han and Song’Sccc“Chun and it’s hard to believe that Hao recently registered for Boston Major as a substitute this means he will replace one of these two talents. Uuu9 and Sccc for the first time they are traveling to the United States in less than a month and Hao may have been included in the team in case there is a case such as visa problems for the Chinese team happen again.
