Devote yourself to eSports It is a really complicated task that requires a lot of effort, dedication and a skill like that of few. Even those who have competed at the highest level may not be who they once were over time, especially in works like Dota 2.
This is the case of the player Ilya “Illidan” Pivcaev, who competed between 2013 and 2018 in the Valve MOBA. Four years ago he left the professional stage to focus on his career as streamer on Twitch and now, in 2022, he has tried his luck returning to competition, as revealed in meinMMO.
Team Empire is the team that has welcomed him in his return to replace Arslan “Retrograde” Shadzhanv as carry and everything seemed to be going smoothly with two initial wins. However, everything went awry when the next three games resulted in losses, leading to Illidan announcing his withdrawal in just 24 hours after joining the group.
On June 24, he wrote in his telegram channel the reason that led you to make this decision:
“I’m in full apathy of these games like I don’t understand what’s going on, and to play the game badly, I don’t really want to participate competitively. I feel like I’m just making things worse for Empire, so I asked them to pick someone else, who I’ve at least played Dota 2 in the last two weeks.”
The problem now turns to Team Empire, because the season of dota 2 has already started, most of the teams already have their members tied up and it is difficult to get a new participant that is up to par. In fact, they must find it for next July 1, the date on which they will have to play against PuckChamp.
However, it is striking to note that Illidan regularly plays dota 2 along with Apex Legends on his Twitch channel. However, it is most likely that the clear lack of training was the reason why the weight of the four years of absence was felt.
