Taiga parts ways with Bleed Esports

After taking a break from professional Dota 2 due to personal issues, Tommy “Taiga” Le recently returned, but he is no longer with Bleed Esports. The pro player and the organization were only together for a month. Taiga competed for the team in two events during this period with Bleed Esports, but he was unsuccessful in both of the competitions. While Taiga expressed his desire to find a new residence, Bleed Esports announced that he was leaving the team.

According to sources in the area, different sources verified a rumor on Nov. 3 that Taiga would be competing in the SEA. Sources at the time claimed that Bleed Esports was the location, but this went unreported because contract signings are so hazy. Bleed would officially reveal the signing through a release 12 days later.

Bleed was scheduled to participate in the Southeast Asia Closed Qualifiers for ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 after acquiring Taiga on November 15. Bleed was invited straight to that qualifier, but they dropped their first game, fell to the lower bracket, and were eliminated in a 2-0 loss to Aurora. A month later, Bleed received a direct invitation to the Playoffs after competing in Kobolds Rave, a Tier 3 competition. The group made it to the Upper Bracket Semifinals before Team Bright, the eventual finalists, defeated them in the Lower Bracket. At the end of the competition, Bleed Esports came in 4th.

Late in October 2023, Taiga disclosed his struggles with an addiction to gambling. Taiga claims that after he gradually began to lose his enthusiasm for Dota 2 and esports, he fell victim to addiction. He mentioned that following The International 2022 (TI11), he began to gamble. He began by betting on the FIFA World Cup 2022 before moving on to other sports and casino games. Over time, Taiga came to realize that he regretted squandering all of his hard-earned money.

Following his candid discussion of his difficulties, Taiga declared his sincere desire to compete once more in video games. He promised to resume his previous interests and to begin playing Dota 2. He joined Bleed Esports, keeping his word.

Tommy intends to compete and will be available as a free agent in 2024. The renowned Norwegian player’s third region was SEA. Taiga was stationed in Europe initially, and he competed in North America for The International 2023 qualifiers before moving to Southeast Asia to begin the Dota 2 season. There is no transfer window if the DPC and a formal roster lock is not in place. Taiga has time to move and find a new place to live, and Bleed has time to take his place.

As we start the new year, February marks the $1,000,000 LAN event BetBoom Dacha Dubai, which takes place in Dubai from February 4–16. The open qualifiers start as soon as the year ends. Furthermore, DreamLeague Season 22 will kick off the EPT in February, and in the latter half of April, Birmingham will host an ESL One LAN tournament.
