Peter Dager, known as “ppd” and “Peterpandam,” is a 28-year-old American Dota 2 player who had played for teams like Evil Geniuses, OpTic Gaming, and many more. Since September 2018, he had been playing for Ninjas In Pyjamas. In his career, he earned around $3.000.000 from the events.

Peterpandam has shared a new post on his official Twitter account and saddened the community with a retirement announcement. He stated that he lost his motivation and ambition to play Dota 2 competitively and showed how grateful he is to the community.

Here is what Peterpandam said:

“Hey, everyone, I wanted to write a few things publically about my decision to step away from competitive Dota 2. I’ve spent just about the entirety of my twenties competing in video game competitions and at this point in my life (almost 29) I’m looking for something else that I do not think I can find in my current position.

Today I find myself focused on personal growth rather than competition versus others and because of that I feel like I have lost the grit and ambition necessary for myself to be the competitor I’m comfortable being. I don’t feel bad about it as I believe change is healthy and I am eager to do something amazing and new in my 30s.”

He added:

“I will be forever grateful for the people who believed in my abilities and saw the potential that I always believed I had no matter how objectively poor things may have looked in any particular moment.

I want to thank all of the fans and players of Dota 2 whether you liked me or not for the amazing world you created and allowed me to exist in.”

OG Esports player Ceb replied:

“Nothing but a lot of respect for your competitive resilience as well as your Dota mind. Best of luck for what is next.”

CEO of Ninjas In Pyjamas, Hicham Chahine replied:

“You have been a true inspiration and it has been a pleasure working with you. Thank you for everything so far.”
