TI10 might be Topson’s last TI

01:58 PM July 08, 2021

Family-man and back-to-back The International winner Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen hinted that this could be his last TI campaign in an interview with Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat

After his teammate Anathan “Ana” Pham announced his retirement from Dota 2 before the team’s journey to the Western Europe Regional Qualifiers, Topson now announced his possible retirement.


“It looks like this TI may be my last, although I can’t say for sure. Anyway, after the tournament, I will take a big break and focus on my family. At the same time, it will be possible to think about whether to pursue a player’s career or do something else.” Topson said. 

It was September of 2020 when the OG star midlaner welcomed his first daughter with his wife Mawar Remy.


Topson announced his interest and plans to become a Dota caster and analyst if he wishes to retire. 

“I will probably try streaming again and I was thinking about participating in Dota tournaments as an analyst or something, even after I retire. I will probably stay with Dota even if I no longer play.” Topson said. 

Would this be the last TI campaign for the game’s biggest Chad, and will it also spark retirement plans for his co-TI champion teammates Johann “N0tail” Sundstein and Sebastien “Ceb” Debs?
