Sometimes even when you give it your all, a change is necessary.
Today it is with a wistful heart that we’re parting ways with our friend Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng, and would like to thank him greatly for everything he did for us.
From Day 1, MidOne has dedicated all of his energy to this team and has given everything he could to make it work.
From being a mid player converted to the offlane, agreeing for a switch into a carry role, learning new heroes and new ways to play, to even competing from his Malaysian home during online tournaments and still being able to perform as the king that he is with 300 ping without complaining one bit, he has been an essential ally to have on our side during these times.
We will never forget his hard work and dedication towards us.
The Dota 2 results for the past few months have been quite rough on the squad, and the team as a whole felt the need for a breath of fresh air among their ranks.
A re-adjustment is sometimes necessary, but MidOne is an extremely talented player whose mischievous energy brought immense amounts of joy and laughs to everyone around him.
We’ve reached two Grand Finals together, went through playing in a pandemic together, yet MidOne’s joyful personality and great talent never ceased to surprise us when new challenges arose.
From his crushing Sven and Spectre games to being able to bless us with his pocket safelane Meepo, we won’t ever forget how much Yeik brought our way and wish him to find the absolute best in the future.
“I want to thank Yeik for his hard work, and for the sacrifices he has made for OG and for the Team.
He is an extraordinary player, and is unfortunate we couldn’t get better results together. Thank you Yeik, and best of luck!”
Johan “N0tail” Sundstein (Captain of the Dota 2 team, Co-owner of OG esports)
“Competitive synergy is something very unique and complex. Yeik is one of the best players we have played with, and we worked very hard for months and made a lot of improvements… but unfortunately it never “clicked”. It happens sometimes.
We want to wish him the best of luck moving forward and hope he finds a great team where he can shine.”
Sébastien “Ceb” Debs (Co-owner of OG esports)
“Living far away from home, and missing your family and familiar surroundings is very hard, and Yeik deserves a lot of credit for it. He gave his all for this team, and for this teammates and we all tried our very best to have good results for our fans.
Yeik – great working with you and having you around, and I hope you find success in your next adventure.”
JMR Luna (CEO of OG esports)
