Former Bleed Esports Dota Coach Misery Hints at Legal Battle in Singapore

Share This Post

In a surprising twist, Danish Dota 2 coach Rasmus “Misery” Filipsen has hinted at an impending legal battle in Singapore over an esports-related issue. This revelation has sparked significant reaction from the Southeast Asia Dota community, who remember Misery from his tenure at Bleed Esports.

Misery joined Bleed Esports in May 2023 and quickly made an impact, leading the team to their first victory in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit SEA in June 2023. However, their momentum didn’t last, as the team struggled in their first Major competition in Bali the following month, finishing a disappointing 14th.

Over the course of the year, Misery orchestrated numerous roster changes, bringing in high-profile players like Tommy “Taiga” Le, Djardiel “DJ” Mampusti, and Rafli “Mikoto.” Despite these efforts, the team failed to secure top positions in major qualifiers, leading many of these star players to seek opportunities elsewhere.

The team’s performance hit another low at the PGL Wallachia qualifier last March, prompting another round of roster changes ahead of the Riyadh Masters 2024 qualifier. These changes, however, seem to have sparked internal disputes, with the SEA Dota community noticing something amiss, particularly with Misery.

Recently, the 32-year-old coach tweeted that he is “looking for a Singapore-based lawyer, ideally with esports experience.” While he didn’t specify the target of his legal action, many believe it involves Bleed Esports, whose headquarter is in Singapore.

Interestingly, Misery’s situation isn’t the only controversy surrounding Bleed Esports. Before his departure, Mikoto revealed during a stream that his relationship with Bleed had soured. Additionally, former talent scout Sean “Hades” Goh expressed his frustration at being dismissed after proposing a new roster. As the drama unfolds, the community is keenly watching to see if Misery’s former teammates will join him in his legal battle.
