Biography[edit]

Dota 2[edit]

2011[edit]

2011 marked the start of Mushi's Dota 2 career when he officially joined Orange on September 5. Mushi temporarily retired from DotA in 2011, citing fatigue and poor results as the main reasons.[3] Eventually he slowly moved back to a managerial role and then finally rejoined Orange as a player once again. His squad only had one notable win this year at the Malaysia Invitational where they beat MiTH 3 to 2 in a close finals.

2012[edit]

Mushi and Orange looked to have a strong showing in 2012. To make sure they really made a splash, they recruited veteran DotA players kYxY, Ice and even the legendary YamateH. Mushi and Winter were the two players to remain on the roster from 2011. Once again, Mushi and Orange began to build up their reputation as one of the best teams in SEA. From January to June, Mushi and his squad were able to win 4 tournaments with the two biggest being The Evolution Malaysia in May and the Razer Invitational Showcase in April. Orange had strong performances in several other tournaments as well.

Valve acknowledged Orange's performance and the team received a direct invite to the biggest Dota 2 tournament ever at that time, The International 2012. Mushi and team were able to place top 4 in their group and got seeded into the winner's bracket where they were swiftly knocked down by LGD.cn who were undefeated in the group stage. Orange showed some signs of life in the loser's bracket by beating Counter Logic Gaming but their run came to an end at the hands of EHOME. Orange's final placement in the tournament was 7/8th, netting themselves $25,000. Mushi showed once again he was one of the best SEA carry players with dominating Morphling play throughout the tournament. Unfortunately for Mushi (and Korok), Morphling received some sizable nerfs post TI2 and hasn't been very relevant in the months following it.

Following The International 2012, Orange and Mushi continued to show they were the best SEA team by winning the WCG Malaysia National Final over MUFC and WCG 2012 Asian Championship over MiTH. Finally, to top off their year, Orange participated in the G-1 Champions League Season 4. Placing well in this prestigious tournament would solidify their spot among the top 5 teams in the worlds. Orange was able to take 3rd place behind Team DK and LGD.cn. Not only did Orange take third place, but they beat The International 2012 champions, Invictus Gaming, to make it on the podium.

2013[edit]

As with most sports, the two biggest players both in terms of personality and fame, tend to clash from time to time. Mushi and YamateH were no exception to this. Towards the end of 2012 and into early 2013 there were rumors circulating the SEA Dota 2 scene about Mushi leaving Orange after some conflicts with YamateH. Mushi took some time off from Dota 2 but eventually came back to the squad when YamateH announced he was leaving the squad for Zenith.[4] Along with YamateH, Ice and WinteR both left the squad to join Zenith and MUFC respectively. On January 25, Net, Ohaiyo kYxY were all brought in to fill out the roster at the same time as Orange signs an official partnership with Neolution while Mushi took a break from Dota 2. On February 4, Kecik Imba who had played for Orange's Heroes of Newerth squad was brought in to bump the team up to a 6 man roster. Orange was able to perform well enough with this new squad to once again earn a direct invitation from Valve for this year's edition of their major tournament, The International 2013, where Orange took 3rd place. Mushi moved on from Orange Esports to join Team DK during the post-The International 2013 roster shuffling.
