Barely two days after Singapore-based Reality Rift shut its Dota 2 team, another Southeast Asian team is calling it quits with the grand dame of MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena).

In a post on Friday (4 Sep), Malaysian-based Geek Fam announced that its Dota 2 team would be released.

"With the cancelling of Dota 2 Minor and Major tournaments of the season due to safety concerns, it is very difficult for us to continue with the indefinite delay for TI10 and Dota Pro Circuit," Geek Fam said in its post.

"With no updates to the Dota Pro Circuit up until now, we have decided to put a pause on our Dota 2 journey," the post continued.

"Once there is a visible future for Dota 2 and the DPC, we will be back, but until then, we say goodbye to our geeks."

The team, led by Filipino player Carlo "Kuku" Palad, had recently placed first at the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League in July.

However, hard carry Marc Polo Luis “Raven” Fausto left the team for Fnatic later that same month, with Azel “Abed” Yusop standing in during the ongoing ESL One Thailand.

Geek Fam lost to Fnatic 2-0 in a Best of 3 in the lower brackets, and dropped out of the competition on the first day of the playoffs.
