On December 11, 2011, EternaLEnVy announced his plans to put his university education on hold in an attempt to play Dota 2 professionally. He started playing Dota 2 full-time mid April, 2012. EnteraLEnVy's new team No Tidehunter made their first public appearance by playing in The Revenge I. The new squad ended up winning their debut tournament, going undefeated.
On October 29, 2012, it was announced that the Swedish stars Loda and Akke would be joining the roster of No Tidehunter.
During DreamHack Winter 2012, EternaLEnVy announced his team had found a sponsor. No Tidehunter achieved a first place beating Team Empire and Evil Geniuses.
EternalEnvy confirmed on his stream the announcement of his removal from No TideHunters:
"I had a feeling something was going on but it was sudden, they never spoke to me about it"
Pasting the discussions with Loda and Akke in twitch.tv chat, he explained in detail why the decision was made. He blamed the overall performance of the team and took responability of the losses and deaths due to being team captain.
I think It's my fault we haven't been doing well as a team. I made a lot of decisions in game because no-one else was making them. They said they didn't try to make decisions because I made them.
Envy stated it all boiled down to the team desire for an all speaking Swedish team.
See the statements from Loda and Akke below:
I spoke to everyone. And I did have a long talk about. And we decided that we believe more in a all swedish team, and that has to do with language, but also with synergy. You've done a lot for this team, and sure you have invested a lot, but so has everyone else. Thnx for everything uve done, and for helping us grow as players. And I know for sure that u will find a new team, u are the best at what you do, and I think we have helped u grow as a player aswell. Now u can do anything, and a lot of players will play with you. The reason for us is the nationality issue.
The reason for us is the nationality issue. - loda » For whatever it means, I put in a really good word for you when we spoke about it. I said that I've never played with someone who was as good as you when it comes to the synergy of the 2 support players but Loda has a very clear though of what's best for the team and you probably understand that it aint an easy choise for me when it comes down to Loda or you. I'm not saying this to ease my conscience but because I want you to know that I think very highly of you as a player.
