Team Dignitas releases Sneyking
Sat 17th Aug 2013 - 11:11pm: DotA 2
Today Team Dignitas releases JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu from its DotA 2 roster. After not being able to get a top eight placement at The International 3, our squad looked at what had to change and came to the conclusion that replacing Sneyking is the best decision.
We want to thank Sneyking as he was a very kind player to have in our organisation. We also wish him the best of luck in the future, whatever he decides to do next. As for our squad, we will be searching for a fifth and when the time is right we will keep you up to date about sneyking's replacement.
Team manager, Charlie 'Monolith' Yang, had the following to say:
"It’s no surprise to most people that today we are releasing JingJun “Sneyking” Wu from our Dota 2 roster. He is a talented player with years ahead of him to develop his potential, but as of now he does not feature into our current plans. It’s no secret that his play style is rash, unpredictable and inconsistent, but his play throughout the year has won us a fair share of games and contributed to the identity of the team.
He has grown considerably since his days playing Heroes of Newerth and being lectured by swindlemelonzz (I’m sure someone from Reddit will be kind enough to link the video) and his issues with attitude are more complicated and less black and white than he is judged for. However Sneyking, like many players, still has room to grow and for the coming year, the growth will not be with Team Dignitas. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and hope that this experience has contributed positively to his journey not just as a player, but as a person.
As for the rest of the team, they are still retained with us. Yes, the Great North American Roster Shuffle is making its way upon us all, but the rest of our roster has not changed and no final decisions, on behalf of the organization or the players, regarding any of latter have been made."
