Their run in the loser's bracket would prove to be short as they were immediately knocked out by TongFu. EG's success was unfortunately short lived as the team was marred with inconsistent play. Despite the team's poor play, Fear showcased himself as one of the strongest players in the western scene, a point that was emphasized with his victory in A Fistful of Tangoes.
In order to help the team better prepare for upcoming tournaments, Fear decided to move into the EG team house in Phoenix, Arizona where his teammates would eventually join him.
This forced the team to immediately replace him with SexyBamboe. Fear, now captain of EG, decided to switch to a support role to better fit the team's needs.
Fear excelled at this role; however, the team still suffered from inconsistent play. The team's lackluster play and mid-season roster shuffle likely cost the team their The International invite.

EG looked to carry this momentum into The Summit 2 ; however, due to some lackluster plays the returning champions finished in fourth place. Despite the poor showing in the last tournament of the year, was a great year for Fear as his ability to switch between hard carries and tempo controlling heroes quickly became a focal point of ppd's drafts.
This proved to be a key factor in EG's success for the last quarter of as they established themselves as one of the best teams in the world.

This tournament would mark the return of Fear to the more conventional farming safe lane carry heroes, as SumaiL preferred to play tempo controlling mids.
With great play from all members of the team, EG found themselves in the top 4 after the group stage with an record. Trustand then their toughest opponent in the competition yet, iG.
That game was a display of total dominance from MYM and it sent iG out of the tournament. For many of us, MYM has been as much a part of our identity in DotA as our own nickname has, but we are confident that moving on is for the best.
The players will finish the year off by doing different things. Some will continue playing competitively while others are taking a break from the pro circuit. Some has obligations outside of the game that they cannot ignore while others wants to focus fullheartedly on DotA for the rest of the year.
