EternalEnvy is undoubtedly one of the most well-known players in Dota 2. He has a huge fan following as well as a great online streaming presence. However, a recent controversy saw him saying that he has been abandoning matches since 2014. While we are sure that professionals abandon matches every now and then, publicly acknowledging it as a regular thing definitely sets the wrong trend. There will be young players who will be more enticed to abandon their pub matches if they so feel like. This is because they realize that there is no consequence to abandoning matches.
I’ve been abandoning one game per week n forfeiting games since 2014. Whether it becomes a big deal on reddit is random.
