MYM.DotA Disbands

Ks.Int played a match against eSuba today in the Pick League XI tournament. To even everyone’s surprise, MYM|H4nn1 was playing Mirana for Ks.Int. After an hour, TheMaelk (captain of MYM) posted in the dota-allstars thread that his team had disbanded. Earlier, MYM lost its sponsors to the economic crisis, just after Loda had joined them. So, the brand MYM seized to exist, but the team was still there & it was one of the best teams in the world & was looking strong with their new addition Loda. Then, they lost a couple of matches against not so famous opponents. Finally, the inevitable has happened.

Though Ks.Int is my favourite team, there is nothing better than watching Ks.Int play against MYM. MYM has always been a team that I highly admired & the team is regarded by the community as the most successful team in the DotA history. MYM has been there since the SK & VP days. Neither of those teams are here anymore & now, MYM has followed suit. After losing their brand, the team used names like dJooks, [K] and Kingdom for a while. Their captain said that they had received some offers for sponsors but they are yet to make a decision. Sadly, they decided that it was time to dissolve the team.

Here is what TheMaelk had to say:

We have decided to shut down the team.

Kai has had a desire to play with for a long time. Their playstyle fits him perfectly and they have his longtime friend, Levent, and of course KuroKy who is also German, so its an obvious move for him to take. Personally I find them stronger than ever, and with their current form it's probably the strongest lineup there has ever been.

As for the rest of us, Pusher, MaNia- and I have been focusing on the upcoming Europeans Nationscup and playing with an all Danish lineup has rekindled the fun of the game. One of the reasons why we weren't performing in the end, was probably because each of us played and practiced with different teams. Kai with the Germans, Loda with his Swedes, us with our Danes whilst Ben has been more or less busy with school, meaning we had three to four different opinions on how the game should be played, which didn't work out as it has in the past.

As for Loda, I am not sure what he is going to do, but our focus is mainly on the Danish team and our actual lives over the course of the summer, so I doubt we'll be building up anything together.

Was a great ride, but it all fell apart with MYM coming to an end. I wish all of the guys the best of luck in their future teams.
