A few days ago Dog announced that he was leaving Liquid：
I wanted to thank@teamliquid for everything they've done for me over the past few years. They've been an amazing family and organization, but looking forward to see what life has ahead for me as a content creator.
Some informed netizens' comments：
It is not just about money. GM doesnt give him the competition he wants. He said it feels like no one really cares about GM, amnesiac didnt show up to his GM match, zalae played on his phone, etc. Dog was first place in standing even though he didn't really play that much HS. Also most pros dont like the format, even thijs said he wasnt sure if he wanted to play next season if the format stays the same. I thought dog just wanted to take a break because the meta was stale but it seems like he has lost interest in HS. He is back to streaming TFT 2 days after the new expansion release. This has never happened before. For the last few expansions, he would stream for at least a month of HS.
