Fnatic Part Ways with Franchise Player, Mushi
Mushi, the most successful Dota 2 player from Malaysia, has announced his departure from Fnatic after two-and-a-half years with the team. The decision comes after a string of disappointing performances in online and LAN events, as well as multiple roster changes.
Fnatic’s Dota 2 roster now consists of off laner Chong “Ohaiyo” Xin Khoo and support player Kim “Febby” Yong-min, who will work towards rebuilding the team.
It remains uncertain whether Mushi will continue competing in the MOBA title, potentially marking the end of his almost decade-long career. His parting statement suggests that competing will no longer be his main focus moving forward.
“At the moment, I’m leaving Fnatic as a player. I’m not sure about my future plans yet, but I’m looking forward to exploring a new environment.”
The downfall of the South East Asian team began after their fourth place finish at the $21 million International 6 event, where they were defeated by eventual finalists Digital Chaos.
The team’s new roster, including former TNC Gaming players Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, Nico “eyyou” Barcelon, and Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto, failed to qualify for the Boston Major and underwent further changes.
