‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast
So Peter “ppd” Dager will resume his playing career in Dota 2. This feels like the spite story of the year as ppd was once the leader of Evil Geniuses, the one who led EG to every great result at The International. At TI7, EG crashed and burned without him.
Now EG will have to play against a ppd-led stack that is actually serious about competing. While everyone wants to win, there will be that little bit of extra spice, little bit of extra salt if the ppd stack does better as the EG lineup still has more talent. Even moreso if ppd does better at TI8 than the EG squad does. Somehow I don’t think ppd will let any of the old EG members (except zai, who joined him), ever live that down.
