In a major blow to Team Secret, its mainstay support player Yazied "YapzOr" Jaradat recently departed from the team due to health concerns. While discussing this roster move on the We Say Things podcast numbered 156, Dota 2 caster and former pro Troels Lyngholt "syndereN" Nielsen, spoke about his time playing with the now-former Team Secret player. According to syndereN, YapzOr brings his humorous side to a team, but is also capable of taking the game seriously when necessary. In addition, keeping with what is widely known, syndereN also noted YapzOr’s top-tier Dota 2 skills.

SyndereN explains how YapzOr is a valuable player for any team

YapzOr's departure from Team Secret, while forced by health issues, was arguably one of the biggest roster changes in recent memory. During a discussion with Shannon "SUNSfan" Scotten on the podcast, syndereN recalled the time when he played with the experienced player for No Diggity and then Escape Gaming in 2016.

YapZor, as syndereN pointed out in a jolly manner, is the clown on the team who keeps the mood light. With his ability to turn serious when needed, syndereN referred to such a personality as a valuable asset for any team's positive environment.

“I used to play with the guy. The best way I can describe YapzOr with one word is a clown. He was always like - passing around and joking. It’s in the most endearing way though. He was always very lively, cracking a joke, messing around but you know, just a beast in the game. So, he was a very light hearted personality to have on the team. I think that’s really an asset to a lot of teams. I think it’s good to have the contrast between - you can be serious when it’s time for it but it’s also really important that you can crack a joke and laugh at things. It could be really good for the internal atmosphere of the team.”

SyndereN went on to acknowledge YapzOr's contributions to Team Secret throughout the years.

“He’s also been a crucial part of Secret’s success outside of the server, I think, with just the way he is. I think he’s been just an asset to any team that would have had him.”

As syndereN hoped for a quick recovery for YapzOr from the health issues, he also hoped that the issues are not too serious. Upon his departure, YapzOr sent out a rather optimistic tweet saying, “I’m now going to take a break from the game, spend some time with my family and possibly return to some streaming.”

After filling in for YapzOr in some of Secret’s previous games, the team recruited Baqyt "Zayac" Emiljanov to replace him in the position four role. Secret currently has a 3-3 win-loss record and will play its final series of Tour 3 on 12th July against goonsquad.
