South Korean Dota 2 Midlaner Takes a Break
Kim “QO” Seon-yeop, known for his fearless playstyle, has decided to step back from competitive Dota 2.
Yesterday, QO made a post on his Facebook page, revealing that he will be taking a break from full-time play in order to “redeem” himself and work on other aspects of his life.
QO also mentioned that his disappointment of finishing just outside the top four at The International 6 led to burnout and a lack of enjoyment for Dota 2. Despite this, he continued to play for teams like MVP Phoenix, WanteD, and Is GG.
QO’s time with Fnatic at TI7 ended in disaster as they finished last in the group stage and missed the main event entirely.
His stint with North American organization Immortals hasn’t been much better. They have struggled in Pro Circuit event qualifiers after their 4th place finish at the PGL Open in Bucharest.
While this may not be the end for QO, his fans are hopeful that he will regain his competitive drive. In the meantime, Immortals will be on the lookout for a new hard carry player.
