Newbee’s Mu, who won the International 4, has announced his retirement on Weibo.
‘I feel that I am no longer in good form after TI6 concluded. Therefore I raised the idea of retirement to teammates and the club. It is a difficult decision and took me a lot of time. I am 27 this year. My career have lasted to this point where my strength can no longer support my heart. It is time for me no matter how much I will miss it. I thank Newbee, teammates and support from fans.’
It is worth mentioning that Mu had contemplating retirement before Manila Major this Major. The idea was eventually disabused at urging of many people, in particular that of Hao, who decided to go on a 6-month break himself after the setback at TI6.
