Superplayer of Dota 2 hangs his mouse on nail

Captain of Chinese team NewBee signs off e-sports.

Pro-gamer Zhang "xiao8" Ning, who led his team to Dota 2 triumph on The International 2014 tournament, announced the intent to interrupt his career for an indefinite period. This winter NewBee team paid more than $ 80,000 for this player, and he, in his turn, together with his teammates earned five million of evergreen American money on TI4. Well, now xiao8 has enough for "going on vacation."

By words of the Chinese champion, he's not going to say goodbye to professional e-sports once for all. Guy just needs a rest, and we, together with the Chinese fans, hope that his vacation will not last too long.
