    Hello

    why do we never see team veggies participate in TI or some majors. They dont seem bad players at all. I kind of feel merlini is quite a good one.

    There is not much about the team in dota wiki. just stating the members but no clue as what they are doing.

    they just dont want to play or they are too old (valve rules) or there is just something im missing?

    you're missing the fact that Merloobi is one of the best analysts and would be quite hard to replace on the TI analyst panel

    Guys who aren't taking it 100% seriously and they are not really on par with the best players out there. Thats pretty much it.

    They have great insight though.

    no

    Edit: all I could find here and there from reddit and all is:
    1. they cant be casters and participants
    2. they dont want to leave casting OR there is no replacement for them
    3. They think they cannot make it to the group stage
    4. casting is safer income

    I think they were just doing it for fun. I mean they came very close to winning the NA open qualifiers. They were gonna win, but they GG'd out.

    Yep that's all of it. They had won a qualifier and afterwards they explained they had discussed it and that is the reason the core group who are casters didn't want to go any further than that. The remaining people who were actually players already knew this in advance but they had their own personal reasons not to want to go through qualifiers either so they played in veggies.
