Dota 2 legend Mushi featured in a 10th grade Malaysian textbook

by January 8, 2020 0 comments

Southeast Asia is possibly the biggest market for esports after China. The star players are revered by the fans. This is especially true when it comes to Dota 2. Even to this day, professional Dota 2 players, casters and talents believe that the Manila Major that took place in 2016 is one of the best Dota 2 events and they owe it all to the crowd. The most recent incident that shows the status of star players comes from Malaysia, where Mushi has been featured in a school textbook. 

An image of Mushi on a page of a book was posted by a Reddit user thisaintthewayman. The contents of the book are in Malay. Going through the comments, the user reveals that it is from the Bahasa Melayu textbook, which literally translates to Malaysian Language. The user also reveals that is the Form 4 version of the book. In Malaysia, they do not use the Grade to identify a class. As one user they use year 1-6 for elementary, and Form 1-4 for high school. So, Form 4 is the equivalent of 10th Grade. Another user confirmed this and also informed that Mushi was indeed featured on page 6 of the book. Thanks to the user TheMightyPapuPapu, we also have a rough translation of the text, in case you were curious: 

‘I’ll translate for you guys! Some words are paged out, but I can only guess what they’re trying to say based on context.’ 

“Game genre: A MOBA is a game where the main mission is to defend(?) your fort and destroy the opponent’s. Besides(?) individual dexterity and teamwork, strong(?) mental(?) fortitude is required to ensure the playing field(?) is permittable(?) for advantageous strategizing. One of the favorites of this genre is known as Defense of the Ancients 2 (DOTA2)”
