Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

I’ve said this before, but all Dota 2 players must be addicts on the inside. I’m not surprised that Fear decided to play again, especially as there was no reason from him to retire in the first place. I assume the change was made because of Evil Geniuses’ terrible showing at The International 7, so the organization wants someone with experience to play. The thing is, if this is because of the TI performance, then this doesn’t solve anything. Fear was the coach and should have had input on the draft, which was one of the two primary reasons as to why EG lost. The draft shouldn’t change that much with him back in the game. The second problem was the crumbling of all the EG players under pressure. Maybe he can help with that. Either way, I think the team is a good one, though I never thought Fear’s play as 5 was ever as good as his 1.
