N0tail takes a break for at least a year to focus on health care
“Personally, I am taking at least a year off, so to speak, for my health… For now, all I know is that I need to rest. I am very satisfied, very happy. I’m so lucky to be playing with the people I’ve played with for the past two years. I feel satisfied. But I need a break,” N0tail, the captain of OG over the years, was cited as a reason why he decided to take a break.
N0tail explains that the challenge of being the best has been exhausting and all he knows for the moment is that he needs a break. In addition, he also notes that winning TI twice can increase and decrease a player’s desire to continue playing, but it mostly reduces it. N0tail admits that even if he has won TI10, he will still reevaluate his plans to continue competing.
As he mentioned, he usually has a two-week recovery period after each TI where he sleeps and eats, but after TI10 he feels that he needs more time to recover and “Rekindle the fire.”
With the goal of developing a new generation of OG Dota 2 players, N0tail will continue to mentor the new OG roster during its break. “I think it is essential that veteran players work with new players and help them develop. After all, during all these years, we have learned a lot. About Dota, about being a good teammate, about being a pro. That knowledge needs to be shared. We don’t want the next version of OG to be a carbon copy of the current version. But we believe that if we can transfer what we know and let them add to this, the cap will be much higher and we can help them get there faster. Hopefully save them some of our mistakes :)” N0tail said.
