Dota 2 Team Spent Stolen Prize Money on “Drones and a Porn Star”

Two former members of Team Secret, a well-known professional Dota 2 team, have made shocking revelations about its organisers, accusing them of taking 10% of team winnings without permission and of spending that money on “drones,” “models,” and a “porn star.”

Jack ‘EternaLEnVy’ Mao was first to go public with the accusations, publishing a 7,500-word blog post on the matter, revealing in detail how Team Secret mishandled funds and mistreated members.

“Not once on Secret have we ever talked about having a prize winnings cut to the organization,” Mao wrote. “We have however discussed the complete opposite where we would talk about how it’s stupid to have a % prize winnings cut in DotA because of its abnormal prize pools. It was understood by everyone on the team that there would not be any prize winnings cut to the organization. Well, every player but Puppey.”

“Throughout the year I’ve been sent money in very random amounts, and I had no idea which tournaments the money came from,” he added. “I’ve asked Kemal many times throughout the year to tell me what the money is for whenever he sends me a transfer but I didn’t get a report till Sept 8. I found out there’s a 10% Organization cut from reading the “rate” column on the spreadsheet. We were actually never informed of this. The current players of Secret also don’t know there’s a 10% cut.”

That 10% cut was then used to fund the team’s organisers’ lavish lifestyle. “Secret bought like drones, hired a porn star, and a few models during TI,” Mao revealed. “They also flew in two of the CSGO girls. Doing all this is fine, but the lessons from this year told me that it probably indirectly comes from the players’ pockets.”

Apparently, team leader Clement ‘Puppey’ Ivanov also has quite the temper, as evidenced by the following video:
