Legendary Dota 2 player Mushi bid farewell to his long-time team, Fnatic
It finally happened. Nobody wanted it to happen, but we all knew that it would happen eventually.
Longtime Fnatic Dota 2 player and face of the franchise, Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung, has left the organization after 2 and a half years and five Major campaigns.
The organization’s Dota 2 squad has been in a bad place in recent months as the departure of 3 other Fnatic members, Djardel “DJ” Mampusti, Zhen “Midone” Yeik Nai, and Adam “343” bin Akhtar Hussein, who left right after their miraculous TI6 run where they finished 4th place.
In the organization’s blog post, they say that Mushi has chosen to relinquish his position in order for Fnatic to find a new way forward and it seems that there is no bad blood between the two parties.
For the future, though, Mushi says that he isn’t sure about any plans as of yet, but implies that he will not be retiring from the world of professional Dota2.
It is, however, to be noted that other Fnatic mainstays, Eric “reinnnn” Khor Wei Soon, their manager, and Chong Xin “Ohaiyo” Khoo, their offlane player will be remaining with the organization. They will be joined by one of their recently acquired players Kim “febby” Yong-Min, who joined the organization after the conclusion of The Boston Major, which wrapped up last December.
The organization has not yet announced their plans for the future or any of the potential players that they may pick up, but it’s interesting to think about just who they will be asking to play for them given that they are one of the largest and most prestigious organizations in all of eSports.
