Fnatic Ditches Dota 2 ‘Temporarily’ After Rapid Dpc Decline

Yesterday’s VALORANT NA Challengers match between G2 and BreakThru was delayed significantly by a technical issue that also resulted in some conflict between the two teams. BreakThru appeared to be saving for Round 19 of Map 3 while playing at a two-man disadvantage. BreakThru flyuh appeared to be entirely asleep when G2 Oxy stabbed him to death at B Tower on Pearl, which was an odd turn of events.

Considering the organization participated in The International 2022 just a few months ago, a relegation wasn’t in the cards.

Despite attending TI11, Fnatic’s run through the event was less than ideal as they finished the tournament tied for 13th place. Shortly after the tournament, the organization bolstered its ranks with legendary players from the region, but nothing went according to the plan.

Fnatic’s latest iteration didn’t win a single series until the last day of SEA DPC tour one, a shocking performance since two fresh rosters, Execration and Geek Slate, were taking over the region.

While more than a handful of organizations have dipped their toes into Dota 2 over the years, Fnatic has been around since its early days. The organization picked up their first Dota 2 roster in 2011, and this is the first time that they’ve decided to walk away from the scene.

Fnatic’s tweet highlights the sustainability of their Dota 2 roster, and the official announcement by the organization makes it sound like they might be out for the entirety of the 2023 DPC season. This can quickly change if Fnatic can land a beneficial deal with a division one squad, however.
