The veteran Australian DOTA 2 caster whose real name is Toby Dawson was in hot water recently after various sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations surfaced against him.

Tobiwan responded to the allegations and gave his side of the story in a lengthy Twitter post but other names in the DOTA 2 scene raised their voices in unison against him.​

Another popular caster, Capitalist, made it clear that he wants Toby out of the community while DOTA 2 developer Valve removed his voice lines in the game and upcoming tournaments.

Earlier today, Tobiwan announced that he's walking away from the world of E-Sports after 17 years. He also changed his Twitter username to "Inactive". "As of this post I will cease to have any public image in E-sports. I will never commentate again and my focus will turn fully to my family and finding away to move on in life," he wrote.

However, he reiterated, "Those who have made serious allegations against me should follow the proper process through the law, and not rely on innuendo or evidence void of scrutiny and both perspectives. I want to make it clear: I am not guilty of any criminal offence."
