Costly mistakes for Newbee star
August 20, 2018
Sccc wasn't at his best and Newbee are eliminated from The International 2018. The star midlaner finished with a KDA of 6/8/25.
ANALYSIS
Sccc used Dragon Knight against Iceberg's Tiny in the midlane. He was struggling against Tiny's hard-hitting blows to sustain in lane despite his hero's innate tankiness. He then decided to buy a very quick Black King Bar to help the fights Newbee swing their way. But questionable plays in the late game dug Newbee a hole, they couldn't get out of.
Gave his heart out in lost
August 20, 2018
Moogy gave his heart out against Winstrike but Newbee still fall short at The International 2018. The carry finished with a KDA of 18/7/19.
ANALYSIS
Moogy went with Gyrocopter against Winstrike. He was the only one on the side of Newbee who was having success in the laning stage despite giving First Blood against Nongrata. He managed to bounce back in an incredible way farming a plethora of items. With Black King Bar and Mjolnir, he was always in the thick of the action alongside Sccc's Dragon Knight. His solid stat line didn't mean much in the end though as Newbee still concede.
Commendable effort as Newbee bow out
August 20, 2018
Kpii couldn't really recover from his rough laning stage against Winstrike. The Aussie-Chinese offlaner finished with a KDA of 10/7/22.
ANALYSIS
Kpii played Mirana in the match against Winstrike. He struggled in lane but still bounced back in the midgame. Kpii stepped up from his usual sacrificial role for Newbee to become a semi-carry in the elimination match. He hit some key Sacred Arrows but Winstrike still managed to break through the first Barracks of the game. Newbee were eventually overpowered and defeated.
Dreams of another Grand Final run snuffed out on Day 1
August 20, 2018
Kaka looked like a sliver of his former self against Winstrike in The International 2018. The support finished with a KDA of 3/11/22.
ANALYSIS
Kaka went with the meta dominant Dark Willow in the bot lane with Kpii. He provided some early pressure against Winstrike with his nukes. But as the game went on Kaka was instrumental in Newbee taking fights with his clutch Terrorize usage and Bramble Mazes. Kaka was not the player he was in their last Grand Final run at The International 2017.
Puts up strong fight, but can't topple Virtus pro
August 17, 2018
Moogy played well despite coming out on the losing end of two Phantom Lancer games vs Virtus pro in the group stages at The International 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 17/10/4.
ANALYSIS
Moogy fought well in Game 1 but couldn't pull all the weight for Newbee on his own. He managed to elude Virtus pro's aggression quite well, farming up and becoming a serious threat in fights. Unfortunately, VP were able to handle the rest of his team or just burst Moogy down in key late-game fights. In Game 2 Moogy once again put up a commendable fight for his team, but couldn't do enough on his own against a powerful Virtus pro lineup. He managed to find some good kills for Newbee, but it was nothing in the face of the momentum and lead built up by VP.

Silently snag last direct invite to The International 2017
June 19, 2017
Valve announced via their official Dota2 website the regional and direct invitations to The International 2017 on Monday. Newbee secured the sixth and final invitation.
ANALYSIS
Newbee, by poll of public opinion, would likely not be considered among the global elite teams. They have not achieved many high profile victories so much as they have lurked in the shadows, winning just enough to keep themselves in contention. After a poor showing at the Kiev Major, Newbee failed to qualify for both Epicenter and The Summit 7. Ultimately their first place finishes at ZOTAC Cup Masters and Galaxy Battles this past month, along with a string of second-place finishes to Evil Geniuses earlier in the year, allowed Newbee to claim the final invite to this years International.
