Even if you have all the coordination required to be professional Dota 2 player, sometimes klutziness catches up with you. That was the case with Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao during the Manila Masters, when the former Team NP captain tried – and failed – to sit in his chair. Now that infamous seat is available for you to purchase to a high bidder. Don’t worry, the proceeds for this ridiculous souvenir are going to charity.
The item went up on eBay yesterday with a starting price of $322, and as of this writing is already up to a current bid of $1,400. Plenty of zero-feedback bidders in the history, which is concerning given the chair’s meme status, but at least one legitimate account was there with a bid of $1,325. With more than eight days remaining, there’s a lot of room for that price to go, especially given the fancy rendition of EternaLEnVy’s signature embroidered in the chair’s back.
Here’s the fall, which I know you’ve been eager to see again.
All proceeds from the auction will be going to support relief efforts in Marawi, Philippines through Sanlinlahi Alliance Philippines. The city of Marawi has been under siege from militant jihadists since May of this year, and conflict between those groups and the Armed Forces of the Philippines have wrought destruction in the city and created many refugees.
