Messages of worry and appreciation flooded SingSing’s tweet, so a few hours later, he followed up with another tweet stating that there is nothing to worry about the break he is going to take as he is just going to clear his head.
no worries guys. just taking some time off to clear my head. appreciate the concerns!— Sing (@SingSing) July 6, 2020
In the last two weeks, SingSing’s name was dragged into the sexual harassment allegations made by an artist. However, Sing clarified this issue during one of his streams where he said that their fling was completely consensual and explicitly stated to her that he was not looking for a serious relationship. Then in the last few days, Sing changed his Twitter banner and profile picture to plain colors.
Fans are already familiar with this break and understood the need for SingSing to take it as he was streaming Dota 2 since 2014. In 2018, he also streamed various games such as PUBG, Fortnite, and League of Legends before returning to streaming Dota 2 in 2019. As he became a full-time streamer, some fans pointed out that his Dota streams were not the same after his Dota 2 break early in 2018 due to the burnout of having over 20000 hours of playtime as he was already a part of Dota 2 since its early beta access in 2011.
Even though most fans know and idolize him for his unique and trolling playstyle, SingSing was regarded as one of the great pros of his time. He was known for his great game sense with his Arrows on Mirana and combos on Kunkka. With his unconventional hero pool in mid, SingSing became one of the pioneers of Meepo core where he helped C9 even the series against Vici Gaming in The International 4. Although they lost that series, Sing helped Envy, bOne7, Aui_2000, and Pieliedie win 5th place. This victory also marked Envy’s highest placement in the 5 TI’s he attended. After no luck in the following teams he joined, SingSing announced his retirement from the Pro scene in 2017.
That being said, enjoy Master SingSing’s last-pick Meepo against a stacked Vici Gaming in TI 4 while we wait for his next stream. What’s your favorite SingSing moment? Share your thoughts in the comments and stay tuned for more!
