Popular Dota 2 players, Kurtis "Aui_2000" Ling and Maurice "KheZu" Gutmann have decided to take a break from the competitive scene as they leave their ex-CR4ZY stack, catJAMMERS. The team is now left down to three players, hFn, MoonMeander and Bryle.
Aui_2000 and KheZu To Take Time Off Competitive Dota 2
In a tweet by Aui_2000, he stated that he was leaving catJAMMERS and subsequently had “no current plans.”
KheZu as well indicated his desire to take a break and would be leaving catJAMMERS. In addition, KheZu has also hinted at his future plans by stating that he would be playing in EU after the break and would either coach or play then. He stated that he was “feeling a bit drained from playing in NA.”
KheZu and Aui_2000 had been playing together for nearly 11 months, initially under Fighting PandaS, then CR4ZY and finally catJAMMERS. Majority of this period was spent with the organization of CR4ZY where they enjoyed a decent amount of success. But the implications of the global health crisis forced CR4ZY to disband all their esports rosters which then resulted in the players forming a stack.
With the CR4ZY organization, both the veterans were able to secure runner-up finishes in The Great American Rivalry Season 1 Division 1, BTS Pro Series Season 3: Americas, and ESL One Birmingham 2020 – Online: North & South America. Other than this, their team also secured six Top 4 finishes.
catJAMMERS is set to play at Realms Collide S2 which begins tonight. With both these players missing out from the team, it will be interesting to see if Bryle, hFn and MoonMeander continue to play the tourney with stand-ins or they withdraw themselves from the tournament.
