Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao is done with competitive Dota 2 after a long 10-year career that saw him lead some of the best teams in North America.

The 31-year-old, who’s played for teams like Cloud9, Team Secret, and Fnatic, confirmed his retirement on his personal Twitter.

EternaLEnVy had been on a hiatus since October last year, where he played for Sadboys in the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit.

Best known for his high-risk plays, EternaLEnVy was always one of the scene’s most entertaining players.

When he was with Cloud9, he led the esports organization’s efforts to break through in Dota 2 in multiple stints. Though NA was historically known to be a top-heavy region with Evil Geniuses’ reigning, EnVy’s Cloud9 team with Wehsing “SingSing” Yuen, Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling, Johan “pieliedie” Åström, and Pittner “bOne7” Armand were fan-favorites capable of taking games off any team.

Breaking out onto the scene with No Tidehunter, the squad that eventually became Alliance, EnVy’s most successful stint was his time with Team Secret, where they won the Shanghai Major in 2016. He played a terrifying Terrorblade and Ember Spirit during his heyday who maximized farm and efficiency very well: a mechanically skilled—if reckless—carry player.
