After departing Team Secret in November (who quickly announced MATUMBAMAN as his replacement), MidOne announced that he was taking an extended break from Dota 2 due to exhaustion. Well, this didn’t last too long as MidOne and SEA regular ninjaboogie announced a new SEA stack in late November. This stack (SEAMonkeys) has only competed in one LAN with a relatively poor result. Since then, news regarding MidOne and this stack as been relatively quiet… until now.
Malaysian Dota 2 player Xiaoyu recently announced that MidOne asked him to leave his Chinese based team (VP.G) and join MidOne’s SEA based team (possibly SEAMonkeys or possibly a new SEA based team), but it appears as if MidOne has changed his mind and will join OG. In return, this has serverly screwed over Xiaoyu in the process as he is now teamless. The rough translation by reddit user MULFAC is below;
xiaoyu: midone went to OG
xiaoyu: i didn’t expect it
xiaoyu: he asked me to leave the team, then screwed me over
Around the same time as Xiaoyu’s leak, VG’s coach rOtk posted on Weibo (Chinese Twitter) with “Shocking! A legendary player will retire and be replaced by……. “, seemingly confirming some truth to Xiaoyu’s statement.
Combine these two rumors with the fact (finally, a fact) that ninjaboogie has officially left SEAMonkeys, there appears as if there be more truth to this rumor than inntially thought.
I guess the big question now is, was Xiaoyu refering to OG? or OG.Seed? If OG, who is retiring? Ceb? N0tail? ana?
