Biography

Born in Lviv, Ukraine, Dendi got an early start with competitive gaming in net cafes when his older brother married, moved out and took the family's PC with him. Dabbling with Counter-Strike first, he soon found Warcraft 3 where he played in local tournaments and built a love for the competition and a thirst to be the best. Though he was quite successful in Warcraft 3 and even won a few local championships in Lviv, he knew he had found his calling when he stumbled upon DotA. He picked up the game quickly and played it almost exclusively over the next few months.

Beginning with learning only supports, he practiced heavily and was quickly vouched to the IHCS1 league and soon created his own team for tournaments in Lviv. After he led his team to a championship in Kiev, he was drafted by a team called "Wolker.Gaming" and began his professional career at 17.

DotA

Dendi started playing professionally with WG in 2006.[1] He was a part of the Ukrainian squad that finished third in MYM Prime Nations the same year. Only a few months later WG made it to the grand final of one of the most prestigious tournaments at the time; MYM Prime Defending.[2] When Kingsurf.international merged with WG the next year he became a full-time member of Ks.int.[1] In late 2008 he joined DTS, only to return to Ks.int in March 2009.[3] Three months later though, Dendi returned to DTS. [4] The team would end up finishing 2nd at ESWC 2010. At the end of 2010, Dendi and DTS finished 3rd at the prestigious WDC 2010.[5] Dendi joined Natus Vincere at the end of 2010.[6]

Dota 2

Dendi started his Dota 2 career with Na'Vi, who quickly established themselves as one of the best teams in the world by winning The International 2011. Na`Vi continued to dominate and won many tournaments in the years 2011, 2012 and 2013. Dendi was the center of Na'Vi's consistent stable and skilled rosters, with his performance greatly contributing to their success.
