Kanishka 'Sam' "BuLba" Sosale is an Indo-American[1] Dota 2 player who currently plays offlane for Evil Geniuses. He is well-known for his Invoker play and pioneered the use of the "early March of the Machines skill build" on Tinker.

Biography

DotA

Kanishka 'Sam' “BuLba” Sosale began his DotA career in 2007,[2] shortly before college, playing under the nickname "BuLba-SaUr". Entering the North American scene at an active time, he soon found himself playing competitively in the many inhouse leagues that existed. As the scene around him began to wane, he dialed back his participation and bided his time, waiting for Dota 2’s release. Despite curtailing his DotA activities, he won MYM Prime Nations 3 during this time as part of an underdog Team USA that took down a star-studded Ukrainian lineup largely composed of members you might recognize from a present day Natus Vincere.[2] In September 2011, Bulba, together with PowerNet created an all-American team called EZ Style, to compete in a tournament called ROCCAT GosuCup #4.[3] Together, the team transitioned into Dota 2 a few months later.

Dota 2

Starting his Dota 2 journey on EZ Style, his original crew was picked up by It’s Gosu, and there he played for a time with Korok.[4] The old EZ Style squad parted ways with April in February 2012,[5] and the following month Bulba moved to Evil Geniuses with whom he attended The International 2012.[6] He left EG in September 2012, and joined Team Liquid when they started a Dota 2 division in December 2012.[2] One of the most flexible players around, on Liquid he will continue to bring his signature Tinker and Invoker to the mid lane as well as diversify into carry and offlane roles.[2]

Trivia

Bulba's favorite cheese is pepper jack.[7]
