Dota 2: Mushi departs Fnatic
Posted 2017-02-06 Jakazolo
“End of an era” gets thrown around a lot, to the point that when a true legend steps away, the occasion is often lost amongst the traffic.
Today, such a juncture weighs heavily on our hearts. After two and a half years with the organisation, five Major campaigns and a monumental drive to put Fnatic back on the Dota 2 map, we now bid a fond farewell to Mushi.
It’s hard to shy away from the fact that the team has been suffering recently. In the months following The International 2016 the roster was never really able to settle and unfortunately this reflected in our results. It is with regret that now we come to this impasse where one of our founding players and most iconic figures has found the best solution is to relinquish his position in order for Fnatic find a new way forward.
We are so incredibly grateful to Mushi for all that he’s given us: for each fan that he has drawn to Fnatic, for all he has done to grow the organisation in South East Asia, for the professional example that he sets every day for aspiring gamers around the world. For all of this, a simple ‘thank-you’ does not do justice. We of course hope to stay close, and who knows, maybe our journeys will come together once more. It goes without saying that we wish Mushi all the best going forward.
Now we must press on. We’re thrilled that Ohaiyo will be continuing the team’s endeavour, joined at his side by our newest player, Febby. Together with Reinnnn, they will now look to a brighter future as they contemplate a new roster.

I never expected the day would come when Mushi would leave Fnatic Dota but that time has unfortunately arrived. It is with very heavy heart that I say our long time captain will be leaving us for other ventures.
I would like to thank Mushi for picking me as the manager when the team first started as Team Malaysia, thanks for all the joyful memory he has brought to us and thanks to all the knowledge he has shared to all his teammates to make them better players. The SEA scene would not be as competitive as it is now without your presence. You have lived up your name as a legend and I hope you continue to do so in your future team.

I would like to start off by saying thank you to Fnatic for supporting me all the way from when we had just started off, and all my teammates along the way for your support. I would also like to thank my fans for supporting me through thick and thin.
At the moment I'm leaving Fnatic as a player. I'm not sure about my future plans ahead yet, but I'm looking forward to explore into a new environment.
