Biography[edit]

DotAedit

QO was first introduced to DotA when a man from a church showed him the game every Sunday. While initially bored and disappointed at the game because he was dying a lot, he eventually decided to learn and persevere with the game eventually beating the man from the church. While learning the game, QO played DotA as leisure during his years in Australia under the name RoastedKimchi. He continued to play the game when its sequel Dota 2 was released.

Dota 2edit

QO’s origins of his name was by chance when he made the decision to change his nickname due to most websites and gaming platforms allowing only 4-12 letters when his previous name, «RoastedKimchi» contained 13 letters. By randomly choosing the letters QO, he also realized that it in capitals that it looked like a face and furthermore from word of mouth, typing QO on a Korean keyboard meant don’t back. Coincidentally, he believes that he does not «back» and likes to play aggressive while in Dota 2, picking a username does not need to be between 4-12 letters, hence choosing the name QO. While playing other games such as League of Legends, he eventually chose Dota 2 because of its depth and was interested in the Blink ability.

While studying science in Australia, QO’s first professional Dota 2 stint came in 2013 with AkmA which was a group of Australian players in a stack. For his winter holidays, he traveled to South Korea and met his future teammate Sagun online. After numerous talks with Sagan, he was introduced to March. The emerging Nexon Dota 2 events in South Korea saw this as an opportunity to play with March and QO decided to take a gap year on his studies with the consent of his parents. He joined FXOpen e-Sports alongside March, Febby and Sagun as a mid laner. Despite being knocked out of the AMD Premier League Season 2 in the round of 16, QO displayed his worth to the team by playing a great series in the Nexon Starter League Season 1 with a surprise mid pick Meepo in the grand finals to secure a 3-0 grand final win against EoT Hammer, winning the tournament and complimentary tickets to watch The International 2013. QO then left FXO and made his own team called 5 in QO. In 2014, QO joined MVP Phoenix and saw them qualify for Starladder StarSeries IX — their first lan event outside South Korea. Over the course of 2014-15 QO participated in more events and showed displays of growth as player with placing 4th place in I-League Season 2 and Starladder StarSeries 11. The team carried this play into the qualifiers for The International 2015, making it through the qualifiers and wildcard, and ending up placing 7-8th. The team exhibited their determination and resilience, under the looming speculation of March retiring due to military service. QO became known for his Templar Assassin throughout the tournament against Team Empire in the first match of the elimination when on the 29th minute, he survived a 1v3, and despite initially fleeing, decided to Meld and killed two with style — QO finished the game with the score of 19-5-5.

In 2016 saw a transition and further growth for QO and MVP with first place wins in Dota Pit League Season 4 and WePlay Dota2 League Season 3. He has placed 4th and 5-6th place in Shanghai and Manila majors respectively. QO believed that the rise in MVP Phoenix was due to continually playing ranked solo matches and further practice. In an interview, QO mentioned his «solid-play» style as a further reason behind its recent success in 2016:«Our team is highly based on individual skill. Our players read skills well, they foresee the next movements. Those kinds of things help the drafting. Whatever you draft, a skilled player can play anything.» The team’s recent achievements saw them receive a direct invitation to The International 2016. QO was featured in a player profile and finished 5-6th place in the tournament left MVP Phoenix. He competed at the MPGL/Southeast Asian Championship with a stand-in team, finishing runners-up. He later returned to MVP Phoenix with the stand-in team.

On the 18th January 2018, QO announced that he would be taking a break from Dota 2. During his extended break he returned to Australia to study, and with documentation issues, he later formed Team Oracle in April 2019 and was announced as the carry player for the team.

History[edit]

This section is a stub. You can help Liquipedia by expanding it.

Na`Vi’s DotA section was created in October 2010 with the pickup of Goblak, XBOCT, Mag~, Deff-, and Axypa. After Mag~ and Deff- left the team, they acquired Danil «Dendi» Ishutin and Ivan «Artstyle» Antonov. The team was later invited to The International 2011, winning it after defeating the Chinese team EHOME 3-1 in the finals.

On June 11th, 2013, Na`Vi picked up an all female team. The organization expanded to North America with their signing of the North American Rejects after qualifying for The International 2014, in June, 2014. On December 5th that year, Natus Vincere announced that they were disbanding Na`Vi.US.

After failing to qualify for the 2015 Frankfurt Major, Natus Vincere announced the departure of their Dota 2 squad on October 16th, 2015, leaving the organization rosterless for the first time since its inception. Four days later, Natus Vincere announced that Dendi and SoNNeikO would be returning to form a new team.

In July 2016, Na`Vi overcame Team Secret 3-1 to win the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 in the BTS Studios, Los Angeles. This was their first tournament win since 2014, thus ending a 20-month drought of tournament wins.. This mostly helped them to be directly invited to The International 2016, but after a rough group stage, the team placed last again. The roster stayed together for a while, but then, citing internal issues, the roster broke apart. Na’Vi even tried to create an european roster by bringing Pajkatt, RmN-, and Biver, along with their long time player XBOCT as coach, but they still haven’t achieved a better result, failing to qualify for The International 2017, the first time ever that Na’Vi won’t be attending The International.

After another reshuffle by returning to CIS players once more by bringing in RodjER and the rather untested Crystallize, the team initially started off well, qualifying to some events and even getting 1st place in Adrenaline Cyber League/2017. However, the team unexpectedly had to swap RodjER with Lil from Virtus.pro, and when SoNNeikO left again, Na’Vi brought in their standin LeBronDota. Despite the changes, Na’Vi still didn’t perform well, and more internal issues caused them to switch LeBron with Velheor. As The International 2018 approaches, disaster struck as Na’Vi didn’t even make it through the open qualifiers.

Realizing they needed a big change, Na’Vi decides to do something drastic by removing Dendi from the roster, the first time in 8 years. Almost completely revamping their roster, only Crystallize stays as Navi brings in SoNNeiko once again, adding MagicaL, Blizzy, and later Chuvash into the roster. Xboct also got replaced by Mag as the coach. As they approach The International 2019, Chuvash would go inactive and filled in with Zayac. After a hard fought qualifier, Na’Vi managed to once again compete in The International, but in the end, they have to settle with last place once again.

After the tournament, Zayac left the team rather abruptly after SoNNeiko got benched. Na’Vi then tried a myriad of players in hopes to form a stronger roster, from newcomers like Illias, So bad, Immersion, and Young G, to veterans like CemaTheSlayeR and 9pasha. In the end, Na’Vi opted to take the roster of FlyToMoon into their own, and after some formidabble results, officially made V-Tune, Iceberg, GeneRaL, RodjER, and ALWAYSWANNAFLY into the roster.

Biography[edit]

Kpii’s professional Dota 2 record began with oceanic teams, including Noxious Gaming and AkmA before landing his first notable competitive result with Can’t Say Wips AU in late 2014, where his team placed second in the Defense of the Australians Spring 2014, the largest ongoing Dota 2 tournament in the Oceanic region at the time.

On February 26 of 2015, Kpii found a place in MVP Phoenix, a mostly Korean team. MVP.Phoenix pushed through the South East Asian qualifiers for The International 2015, placing second to their sister team MVP HOT6ix and making it into the wildcard qualifiers. They followed by again placing second in the wild card qualifiers to make it into the main event, in which the team placed an equal 7-8th.

From August of the same year, he spent difficult 5 months on EHOME.K, who placed second in the Chinese region of The Shanghai Major 2016 Open Qualifiers, unable to make it through.

On the 25th of March 2016, Kpii entered the roster of previous international champions Newbee. After a clean streak through The Manila Major 2016 Chinese Qualifiers, Newbee, with Kpii on position three offlane, pushed to third place where they were eliminated. In July 2016, he won the Nanyang Dota 2 Championships Season 2 and came second in DPL Season 1. At The International 2017, kpii finished runners-up to Team Liquid. Newbee later secured a victory at ESL Genting 2018.

After a disappointing first-round knockout at The International 2018, Kpii left Newbee after spending two years with the roster to help reform Mineski along with febby and JT- in September.
