The "return" of Bu "YaphetS" Yanjun was not so long lived after all as the legendary Shadow Fiend player has announced his retirement on his personal Weibo page.

The "return" of Bu "YaphetS" Yanjun was not so long lived after all as the legendary Shadow Fiend player has announced his retirement on his personal Weibo page.

YaphetS returned to the competitive scene after a year and a half absence, joining the mostly unsuccessful Immortal Magneto Gaming. After TI5 he teamed up with ZSMJ to form Team FanTuan. They were invited to the Frankfurt Major Chinese qualifier but failed to make it through the group stage.

YaphetS' prowess on Shadow Fiend in Dota 1 led the developers to code his handle as the hero's "fun name." Despite not leaving a large legacy in Dota 2, many longtime fans of the game still associate him as a memorable and high-level player in China.
