Former OG player as well as TI8 and TI9 champion, Jesse ‘JerAx’ Vainikka reappeared to the public after so long ‘disappeared’ from the DOTA 2 scene. This time JerAx seemed to comment on the return of his colleague Ceb to his former team OG.
Through his comments on Reddit, JerAx explains what he has been doing for the past few months. Unfortunately, the lengthy explanation gives no indication at all that this player will return to the professional scene of DOTA 2.
JerAx claimed he still watched a few DOTA 2 games after deciding to retire last January, but he had no desire to play the game at all.
“Sorry I’m a little drunk, but I feel I need to say something. I still see some DOTA 2 games, but I don’t think to play them. Taking distance from DOTA 2 is the best decision. I can finally cast my gaze (outward appearance) as a player that has been made. by myself (this is a solution I decided for a long time. I have worries about how other people see me) and displays many versions of myself. It feels very scary but it’s fun at the same time. “
“I have begun to appreciate the DOTA 2 community more than ever before, and they always have a special place in my heart.”
“This is a very funny time to see Ceb back. He really forced things to happen. I can’t wait to see what will happen! (:”
Previously, JerAx said that the reason he retired from the competitive scene was because he lost motivation and enthusiasm as a professional player. JerAx feels that there are many people who are more thirsty and passionate in the competition and DOTA 2 and are suitable for the position. His existence will only disappoint his team throughout the season. JerAx even said he did not regret this decision.
Finally, JerAx mentions that he hasn’t completely disappeared from the world of esports. His high passion for the game will lead him to something that feels appropriate for him. What kind of esports game will the next JerAx be involved in?
Let’s pray for the best for JerAx!
