Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin is a professional inactive Dota 2 player from Russia who is currently analyst and commentator.


Dota: Allstars

ARS-ART was part of the squad that basically ruled the 6.43 to 6.48 era. Winning three consecutive MYM PriDe events, he and Vigoss reached superstar level and became well-known worldwide. MYM PriDe #7 is said to have been his main stage. He had a very aggressive play style and heroes such as Nerubian Assassin, Bounty Hunter and Pudge were some of his favorites. Through them he was given the nickname "King of gankers", a nickname which he shared with Vigoss.

Jolie, the team captain of VP back then, shared a few words about ARS-ART. "ARS-ART's (Virtus.Smile) playstyle is very unique, different from any other. His solo-killing ability is simply incomparable, often seizing an opportunity another player would have missed. Even though he is not as good a support player as NS, he can provide many Observer Wards."[1]

ARS-ART also played for the otherwise fully Swedish team SK Gaming during 2008, when they were one of the best teams in the Dota scene.[2] Also featuring players like Loda and Akke, they enjoyed some success with ARS-ART in the team but after a few months he would leave, citing communication problems.[3] Instead he would join the Russian team "Rush3D", captained by PGG and featuring big names such as LighTofHeaveN, DeMoN, NS and iMbaQ.[4] The roster was rebuilt under the name The Retry during 2010. In December 2010 ARS-ART would join DTS to replace their captain ArtStyle.[5] This team stayed with pretty much the same roster even when they switched sponsor, from the DTS organization to Moscow Five, and would continue into Dota 2 together.

Dota 2

ARS-ART played for Moscow Five at The International 2011, placing 5th/6th. After the tournament, M5 brought in Vigoss and PGG, removing ARS-ART from the team. ARS-ART then joined Natus Vincere, filling the void created by Artstyle's departure.[6] The Na`Vi roster would become dominant with ARS-ART on a supporting role. They won almost every tournament they entered up until ARS-ART suddenly left the team in February 2013, citing a bad team spirit.[7] A month later he could be seen standing in for, and he would soon become a permanent member of their roster.[8]

After playing with for more than half a year during 2013, he was kicked from the team as the roster was rebuilt in the post-TI3 reshuffle.[9] However, only just over a month later he was brought back into the team.[10] During the period Autumn 2013-Spring 2014 the VP roster did not enjoy any particular success, with frequent accusations of under-performance being directed at them.[11] Therefore they came into The International 2014: European Qualifiers as underdogs.[11] However, after some stellar performances by ARS-ART on Natures Prophet, they would finish second and earn a slot in The International 2014: Play-In Series in Seattle.[12]

Leaving shortly after TI4 and briefly appearing in Moscow 5 and sQreen's Squard, ARS-ART took a position of an analyst and commentator for StarLadder and the Russian TI5 hub.
