South Korea’s Sang-don “Forev” Lee stated he is taking a break from competitive Dota 2 to deal with his having a hard time company.

Forev, 29, has actually been betting HOYO in the Dota Pro Circuit’s Southeast Asia Lower Department, Season 1.

” I’m going to take a break … due to my personal issues (own service, concentrate on myself) specifically my own company which is studio not working out since covid-19 going worse in korea,” he posted Tuesday on Twitter.

HOYO will need to play with a stand-in for their next four matches, starting Monday versus Galaxy Racer. The team is currently in fourth location in the eight-team league with a 1-2 record in round-robin play. The top two finishers make spots in the Upper Department for Season 2.

Forev showed he would be available for a possible tiebreaker match if required.

” ps. by valve guidelines about dpc, standin can just plays 4 series. so if team hoyo needs me to play in tiebreaker, i’ll do my best to help them,” Forev tweeted. “and thanks to colleagues for understanding me getting off from the group. i’ll be back stronger.”
