‘ppd’ retires from professional Dota 2

Peter “ppd” Dager, one of the legends of the Dota 2 scene, withdrew from the professional competition in the match on Monday. The 28-year-old from Fort Wayne, Ind., Posted on Twitlonger, “Hey everyone, I wanted to write a few things … about my decision to give up competing Dota 2.

“I’ve been in video game competitions for almost all of my twenties and at this point in my life (almost 29) I’m looking for something else that I don’t think I can find in my current position.” I notice that I am focused on personal growth rather than competition versus others and I feel that I have lost the courage and ambition I need to be the competitor I am comfortable with. I don’t feel bad about it because I believe change is healthy and I’m excited to do something great and new when I’m in my thirties. “

Until Monday, PPD was captain of Ninjas in Pajamas since September 2018. That followed stints at OpTic Gaming and Evil Geniuses, among others. The highlight of his career was leading Evil Geniuses to the 2015 International Championship. He was also CEO of Evil Geniuses from December 2016 to August 2017.

His team Ninjas in Pajamas posted poor results this year, taking seventh (last place) finish in the WePlay! Bukovel Minor in January, tying for seventh (last place) in the WePlay! Tug of War: Mad Moon in February, and match for the 13th (out of 16 teams) this month at the ESL One Los Angeles Online-Europe / CIS event. Ppd wrote, “I will be forever grateful people who believed in my abilities and saw the potential that I always thought I had, however objectively bad things may have looked at one point.

“I want to thank all the fans and players of Dota 2, whether you liked me or not, the great world you created and made me exist.”
