Former Pub-star and now 2x TI world champion Topias ‘Topson’ Taavitsainen has announced via Twitter that he intends on taking a break from Dota to spend time with his ‘family, think about the future and setting new goals’. Personally, I think Topson just wants to hit the gym more and increase his gains!
It’s common knowledge that ana will be also taking a break from Dota, following OG’s incredible back-to-back TI performances over the last 2 seasons. Last year OG continued to play with a number of stand-in’s until ana returned, but with both ana and Topson taking extended breaks it would be hard for OG to compete with 2 stand-ins…. Wouldn’t it?
No word on how long Topson, or ana intend on taking a break for. MATUMBAMAN recently announced that he will be taking a break from Dota until the 2nd Major of the DPC season (Jan 18-26), as ana returned to OG around December last year it’s fair to assume that OG may collectively take a break until this time as well.
