"What happened to Arteezy?"

The North American player has always been a magnet of interest in the Dota 2 community. Arteezy is indeed one of the earliest Dota 2 stars that garnered a lot of fans. And to no surprise, the current carry player of Shopify Rebellion became a subject of discussion during DreamLeague Season 22.

A Reddit user posted Arteezy's face cam during one of the group stage matches. Arteezy appears exhausted and worn out. Although it might just be a lighting issue or an exaggerated expression on cam, the post quickly gained traction. Most of the comments were meme-ing about the situation and some are concerned.

Hours later, Arteezy posted on his Twitter/X account. He revealed that he has some health issues which may lead to him looking unwell. He had sprained his neck and because of that also struggled to get enough sleep. Fortunately, he noted that he is recovering.

"(Thank you) for concern my friends and haters)) I had neck sprain and wasn't able to sleep much for a week (getting better now), usually don't react but this time felt fiesty," Arteezy posted.
