Song ‘Sccc’ Chun is the current mid laner for Newbee. He is the second player in the China region to achieve 9000 solo MMR. He was featured in the Valve documentary True Sight: The International 2017 Finals as a member of one of the two teams in the Grand Finals.
‘Sccc’s career began in 2015 when he joined Newbee Young. This was a team that sponsored rising talent in the China region. Unfortunately, the team was very unsuccessful to begin with. After failing to place even remotely highly at The International 2015 qualifiers, the squad went through some roster changes. The team began to perform a lot better and managed to place top 3 at several small events which won them several thousands of dollars. Despite failing to qualify for many events, the team managed to qualify for the main event of The Frankfurt Major after the team they lost to had to withdraw their invite. Disappointingly, they had a very poor run through the event and placed joint last. Following this, more roster changes were made.
Towards the end of 2015, the team won the Shanghai Dota 2 Open Qualifier and placed 3rd/4th at the main event. However, the team had very little success for almost the entirety of 2016. They failed to qualify for every qualifier they entered. Following The International 2016 Qualifiers, the team briefly began to achieve some good results, as they placed 4th at National Electronic Arena and 3rd/4th at G-League 2016. However, in September, ‘Sccc’ joined the main Newbee squad.
‘Sccc’ immediately saw success on Newbee. They placed 2nd at their debut event, Mars Dota 2 League and proceeded to win Shanghai Dota 2 Open #2. In the remainder of the year, the team placed very highly at Chinese tournaments but was somewhat less successful at International events. They received a direct invitation to The Boston Major, but unfortunately, placed joint last. They later played at World Cyber Arena after making it through the Chinese qualifiers, but disappointingly placed 5th/10th. On the other hand they won Dota2 Professional League S2 – Top and took home over $200,000.
2017 was a much better year for Newbee. They came 2nd at ESL One Genting and came 3rd at Dota 2 Asia Championships. However they once again struggled at The Kiev Major, where they once again placed joint last. Following this they initially struggled, as they failed to qualify for either EPICENTER 2017 or DOTA Summit 7. Despite this, they made a comeback over the next few months as they managed to place top 3 at every event they attended, even managing to win ZOTAC Cup Masters and Galaxy Battles. Their results got them a direct invite to The International 2017, where they made it to the grand finals and played against Team Liquid. Unfortunately, the team failed to take a single game and lost 3:0.
Since The International, Newbee have achieved varied results but remain one of the top teams in the world. They came 3rd/4th at ESL One Hamburg, 1st at Perfect World Masters and ESL One Genting 2018 and later placed 3rd at The Bucharest Major. However, amidst these achievements, Newbee achieved several mediocre results.
‘Sccc’ has achieved a number of great results with Newbee, most notably 2nd place at The International 2017. He has placed top 3 at The Bucharest Major and ESL One hamburg and won several prestigious events including ESL One Genting 2018, Perfect World Masters and Dota2 Professional League Season 2 – Top.
