The Mineski.GGNetwork squad has gone through a lot of challenges in the recent years, with the numerous roster changes and international tournaments, but its most recent announcement is something else altogether.
Mineski Esports general manager Yamyam Yui has just confirmed in an exclusive statement that the team's long-time playmaking ace Ryan Jay 'raing-_-potato' Qui* will be taking an indefinite leave from competitive Dota in order to address pressing health concerns.
Replacing him in the starting lineup will be Singaporean carry Joel Chan 'Chibix' Jian Yong, another competitive veteran who has played alongside Galvin Kang 'Meracle' Jian Wen in some of the latter's former teams such as First Departure and 5eva
Official statement from Yamyam:
"Bimbo (raging-_-potato) just needs to take some time off and get a break from all the competitive Dota 2 action, because of some health issues. He will definitely return to the starting lineup in the future, so we will be waiting for his return. Chibix will be standing in for his position on the team in the meantime."
Catch the new Chibix-powered Mineski-Dota's debut tomorrow as they play in the ASUS ROG SEA Cup, which starts at around 11AM Philippine time. MineskiTV will be providing a local stream, so make sure to tune in!
