The reason is, after winning the title Team Secret announced one of the important information through his official Twitter account. Malaysian national player, MidOne decided to take a break for a while in Southeast Asia, or in his home country.

Then, in the photo, Puppey reportedly reported one of his friends. Who is his friend? Without waiting for a long time the answer was finally revealed. Yup, Puppey called Dendi, his best friend, to be a standin.


With MidOne absent, Team Secret will use the services of the Ukrainian player to play in one of the events based on line. This was confirmed via the official Team Secret Twitter account.

With this, Team Secret officially brought in two former Na’Vi players to the event Maincast Autumn Brawl. Previously, Dendi was rumored to be present as a player at Team Secret.

However, the issue was denied after Puppey officially brought in Zai and Nisha. Then, Dendi’s presence with Team Secret at least materialized with his position as a standin. Commencing 5 years after Puppey’s departure from Natus Vincere.

Dendi can also be said to have ‘left’ from Na’Vi, even though he still has a contract with the team left. This is regarding the zero achievements of the Ukrainian esports team. Dendi and Puppey themselves appeared as two important figures Dota 2 in his time.

Na’Vi, who won The International 1 in 2011, is also the part of Puppey and Dendi. Do you remember the Fountain Hook incident? That was thanks to a combo from Chen and Dendi during the grand final against TongFu.
