Dota 2: Fade Explains Why he Left Vici Gaming

Pan ‘Fade’ Yi was recently involved in a controversy around just after TI 9 ended. To make a long story short, he was supposedly “approached” by Royal Never Give Up in an attempt to join their lineups, but later it was revealed that this was not true.

However, the situation around Fade was not good so he decided to step aside from professional Dota 2. Well, it turned out that this lasted only a couple of days. As of yesterday, he officially joined the re-built Team Aster alongside some other top Chinese players.

Fade’s explanation

Pan decided to reveal the true story of what made him leave Vici Gaming by making a huge post on Weibo. Here is a quick recap:

He starts by saying that he wanted to “comfort” Monet after their loss at TI 9, so he called RNGU’s manager. However, he never had any other intentions apart from helping his friend. This was confirmed by Vici’s CEO just after the scandal became public.

After that, he talks about the salary boost drama, which was one of the theories for his decision. He explains that money is not important as long as the team is performing well, which means that his decision had nothing to do with cash.

Lastly, Fade talks about how he feels like he betrayed his team-mates and apologizes. In terms of retirement, he claims that it was an impulsive act made right after Vici Gaming got eliminated at TI 9.
