Peter PPD Dager retires from Dota ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

On April, 20th, Peter "PPD" Dager has announced that he is retiring from Dota 2 competitive scene via his Twitter. 

In his post, Peter says that he's tired of esports and wants to 'do something amazing and new in his 30s'. Here's what his post says:

Hey everyone. I wanted to write a few things publically about my decision to step away from competitive Dota 2.
I’ve spent just about the entirety of my twenties competing in video game competitions and at this point in my life (almost 29) I’m looking for something else that I do not think I can find in my current position.
Today I find myself focused on personal growth rather than competition versus others and because of that I feel like I have lost the grit and ambition necessary for myself to be the competitor I’m comfortable being. I don’t feel bad about it as I believe change is healthy and I am eager to do something amazing and new in my 30s.
I will be forever grateful for the people who believed in my abilities and saw the potential that I always believed I had no matter how objectively poor things may have looked in any particular moment.
I want to thank all of the fans and players of Dota 2 whether you liked me or not for the amazing world you created and allowed me to exist in.

Peter Dager, or PPD, or PeterPandam, was recently playing for Ninjas in Pyjamas. Different sources say that he has won approximately $3m throughout his career. 

Wishing him best of luck!
