Last month, one of the most well-known Dota 2 player in the scene, Chai Yee Fung or more known by his game nick, Mushi has made the decision to leave the European eSports powerhouse Fnatic after leading its Dota 2 team for two and half years. At that time, the star player didn’t reveal his future plan although we were confident that he would not be quiet for long.
True enough, Mushi will indeed make a return to the arena very soon and this time, he will be competing under Mineski Dota’s flag. While this announcement might come quite sudden to some but those who have been following the scene closely might have noticed that Mushi have actually participated in the Kiev Major 2017’s qualifier under Mineski earlier this month.
Furthermore, the direction of the Mineski-X will also be co-steered by someone that already has long-standing professional relationship and personal friendship with Mushi: the CEO of Mineski Malaysia, Yap “Kenchi” Chee Loong who is a known figure in the scene and a former professional Dota 2 player himself.
Hence, it is not exactly surprising for us to see why Mushi has choose Mineski as his new home. To avoid confusion though, his new team will be generally referred to as Mineski-X (sounds familiar?) while the organization’s existing team in Philippines will continue to use Mineski Dota name.
At this moment, Mushi is the only confirmed member of the newly reformed team. That being said, he already on the look for new teammates which is part of his responsibility as Mineski-X’s captain. The organization is expected to reveal the team’s full roster within the next few weeks.
