‘Chiu on This’ is a regular and short opinion blast
Today it was announced that EG and [A]lliance are now player owned organizations. As far as I know their biggest teams are Dota2 teams. This puts PPD in an interesting place as he was elected to be the CEO. It’s not surprising given his history of tyrannical captainship. The players may not have liked to player under him, but they had to respect him. This puts PPD in an interesting place as he is another one of the players gone CEO. Others being HotShotGG from CLG, Ocelot from G2 and Reginald from TSM.
Unlike those guys however, PPD could still very much play at the top level of Dota2, which begs an interesting question. If EG is stuck in a situation where they can’t roster swap or are in need of captain right before TI, would PPD take over the team? It’s not out of the question as PPD refused to the term “retired”. I’d be kind of curious to watch him play again as he is still in my opinion one of the greatest Dota2 leaders to have come from the game.
