Bio

Jian Wei xNova Yap is a Malaysian professional Dota 2 player who has gone from a rookie to one of the top Full Support players in East Asia and the world in three years. As a member of PSG.LGD, Jian won silver and bronze at The International.

Jian started appearing on tournament rosters in 2013, but started playing consistently in 2015. His first serious team, Who2Bet, finished second at the South East Asia Dota 2 Championship. He later joined the Malaysian team WarriorsGaming.Unity.

WarriorsGaming.Unity quickly gained attention by winning The Boston Major 2016 open qualifications and earning a spot in the main stage. The team finished in the top 8 out of 16 and earned $125k. Following this success, they won the majority of tier 3 tournaments and placed third at ROG MASTERS 2017. After his contract expired, Jian moved to China and joined LGD Gaming.

Their first successes included second places at StarLadder i-League Invitational Season 4 and Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018, bringing the club $200k. After that, LGD Gaming became PSG.LGD. Under this brand, xNova and his team won EPICENTER XL, MDL Changsha Major and finished third at the China Dota2 Supermajor. At The International 2018, they were the favorites but finished second behind OG. At The International 2019, PSG.LGD had a great result again, finishing in third place.

After playing for PSG.LGD, xNova spent over a year in EHOME before joining Royal Never Give Up. With them, he placed 2nd at the Huya Winter Invitational 2021, 5-6 at the Riyadh Masters 2022, and 13-16 at The International 2022. 

In the fall of 2023, Jian joins Invictus Gaming. Together with it he participates in the qualification for ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023, where the team took 1st place at the closed qualifiers and qualified for the tournament. The squad placed 5th-6th at the main portion.

In January 2024, the team participated in qualifications for BetBoom Dacha Dubai 2024, DreamLeague Season 22 and ESL One Birmingham 2024G2.IG managed to qualify for DreamLeague and LAN Birmingham, but at the BetBoom Dacha closed qualification, the squad was defeated by Blacklist International and dropped out of the tournament in 7th place.
