You read that headline correctly. Despite coming in second at this years International, which had the largest single prize pool in esports history with $34,330,068, CEO Victor Goossens announced all of the teams players are leaving.

The parting seems to a mutual agreement between the teams and the players, who Dot Esports believes may try to stay together and form their own organization though no confirmations on that have been given.

Gossens has stated that DOTA2 is a game that Team Liquid believes in and will rebuild, but that it’s a complicated process.
