Dota 2 player Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung has left Mineski after 18 months with the Filipino esports organisation, having taking to social media to confirm his departure from the team.
Mushi posted on Facebook on Sunday, 11 November, confirming his new free agent status as he begins his search for a new team.
Mushi gave no specific reason for his parting of ways with the organisation.
However, the Malaysian player, who became well known while playing for a string of top Dota 2 teams, such as Team DK and Fnatic, has seemingly departed Mineski on good terms. He thanked the organisation for the support that he had been given during his spell with the side and wished the organisation good luck in the future.
The status update read:
“I’m officially a free agent now. Thanks Mineski for taking care of me all this while and I hope both the organisation and team will have good future.”
As Mushi begins looking for a new challenge, Mineski will likely begin searching for his replacement.
Mushi is the latest member of Mineski’s Dota 2 Asian Championship-winning roster to depart. Three of that winning squad were released shortly after that major victory back in April. Now only Kam “Moon” Boon Seng remains.
Mushi leaves Mineski: A look back at his career so far
Mushi joined the Mineski roster in March 2017 after standing in for the organisation’s second team, Mineski-X, during the Kiev Major Open Qualifiers earlier that month.
Prior to that, he has made a name for himself as one of Malaysia’s finest Dota 2 talents playing for some of the biggest organisations in the competitive scene.
His career dated back to 2011, when he joined Orange Esports, before he switched to Team DK in 2013. There he helped the organisation to claim victories in the 2013 WPC ACE Dota 2 League and StarLadder StarSeries Season 9. Likewise, the team finished fourth at The International 2014.
He has since also played for Team Malaysia, EHOME, and Fnatic. However, his finest moment came with Mineski at the Dota 2 Asian Championships 2018, where they defeated OpTic Gaming, Vici Gaming and The International 2017 runner-up LGD Gaming to claim a $370,000 share of the $1m prize pool.
