As Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang was broadcasting the T1 vs Galaxy Racer match of the BTS Pro Series S7: SEA on his personal Twitch stream, he commented on his experience with T1's carry, Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon. Iceiceice and 23savage spent nearly a year with Fnatic in 2019-20 before parting ways with the team.

Iceiceice talks about muting T1 and the time spent with 23savage

While iceiceice was watching the game between T1 and Galaxy Racer on 12th July 2021 and engaging with his chat, a viewer noted that he had muted all T1 players except 23savage. As Evil Geniuses had played with T1 at the WePlay AniMajor, they were muted to avoid chat wheel spam during official games. Iceiceice explained that he had not bothered to unmute them after the event, but he now did it on his livestream.

Meanwhile, 23savage was the only unmuted player because he had recently met iceiceice in a pub match. Following this, a Twitch user asked how his experience playing with 23savage had been to which the veteran offlaner responded,

“It was pretty good. He works hard. He plays hard. He motivates the rest of the team. Can be a little emotional but that is just because he is young, he is a kid so that’s kinda expected. But overall it was a good experience I would say.”

From September 2019 when 23savage joined Fnatic, until July 2020 when he left the team, iceiceice and 23savage played together. During this period, the two had a fairly good time with the organization, particularly during the online events, when they won five consecutive tournaments.

Iceiceice, who is known for his witty remarks, hilariously told his Twitch audience after unmuting all T1 players that he would mute them again once he enters The International 10 (TI10). Despite getting used to the voice lines, he said that they are still annoying so it is better to mute the opponents.

Both T1 and Evil Geniuses have qualified for TI10 after earning enough Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points during the regular season. Evil Geniuses is not expected to appear in any events in the near future whereas T1 is currently competing in the BTS Pro Series S7: SEA and will then appear in ESL One Fall 2021: Bootcamp Edition from 21st to 29th Aug 2021.
