Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung, one of the most well know Dota 2 players has suddenly also become one of the most sought today. Sought after by whom? Pretty much every pro team out there of course. Mushi recently announced that he is no longer part of Team Malaysia which means that he is now a free agent and bound to receive a plethora of offers from all sorts of teams in the coming days and weeks. “I have officially left Team Malaysia. Wish them good luck, bring up Malaysia’s pride & make everyone proud,” Mushi said on Twitter. This news may come as a shock to many but the truth is that Team Malaysia is no longer the best Dota 2 team in south-east Asia.
Team Malaysia’s performance hasn’t been exactly stellar as of yet, especially in their matches against Singaporean team First Departure, which seems to be on the rise at the moment. Mushi’s announcement comes merely a few days after former teammate Joel “Xtinct” Tran also announced his departure. Neither of them have revealed the reasons behind this decision, so all we can do is speculate for now. It is assumed that an internal event that happened these last couple of weeks lead to this but there are no details available as of yet. But even so, it’s still a bit strange to see Mushi leave his teammates behind given the history they share together.
The three remaining players Wai “Net” Pern Lim, Chong “Ohaiyo” Xin Khoo, and Lee “kYxY” Kong, as well as Xtinct and Mushi were all part of Orange eSports last year and formed a nearly unbeatable squad for a while. Orange is best known for managing to grab the third place at the Dota 2 International 2013 and winning almost $290,000 in the process. The squad then parted ways when Mushi joined Team DK as the other players left for team Titan. The four rejoined their former captain shortly after however under the banned of Team Malaysia. Now the squad is broken up again and their future is uncertain, but at least it’s safe to say that Mushi has something to look forward to as many teams are probably already thinking about bringing him on board.
