Former 9pandas coach Nofear, who recently departed from the organization, has publicly criticized the team's decision and accused them of deceit, suggesting that not all team members were in favor of his removal.
Nofear expressed disappointment in 9pandas' handling of the situation, particularly their release of a video titled "Team decision" which he believed did not accurately represent the complex dynamics within the team.
His departure has caused a stir in the Dota 2 community, given his successful track record, and he hinted at potential internal conflicts while warning that he might reveal more details if the situation persists.

In a surprising turn of events, the former coach of 9pandas, Aleksandr "Nofear" Churochkin, has finally broken his silence in the wake of his abrupt departure from the renowned esports organization. In a carefully crafted statement disseminated via his Telegram handle, Nofear made allegations of deceit against 9pandas and contested the organization's claims that indicated that his removal had been a unanimous team consensus.

Nofear issues a pressing statement

Nofear, in his post, expressed gratitude towards the organization for their endeavor to shed light on the decision-making process but critically questioned the inclusion of Gleb “kiyotaka” Zyryanov and Matvey “MieRo`” Vasyuninin in that process. He opined, "Matvey was against the expulsion, and Gleb certainly didn't support it either."

The coach conveyed his disappointment with how 9pandas managed the situation, highlighting the release of a video bearing the slogan "Team decision," while the actual situation was a lot more complex.

Nofear's unanticipated departure has sent shockwaves through the Dota 2 community, given his successful tenure as 9pandas' coach. His leadership led the team to numerous victories and secured a direct invitation to The International 2023 (TI12), earning him recognition for his positive demeanor and ability to maximize his players' potential.

Nofear's words implied that tensions and conflicts were simmering beneath the surface of the team. He also warned that if this situation persisted, he might be compelled to divulge the full truth about the events.

In the vlog, Kiyotaka had stated, "The team decided that the required duties were not being fulfilled. We decided to try something new or even work without a coach. Let's think about it for now."

As 9pandas navigates the aftermath of Nofear's exit, the Dota 2 community watches with keen interest, anticipating how the team will adapt and address the apparent internal strife.
