Ivan "MinD_ContRoL" Borislavov is a professional Dota 2 player currently playing for Team Liquid.



MinD_ContRoL's professional career started out with Vast Cast, in February of 2014, where the team managed to qualify for various small online cups, such as EIZO Cup #11 and the consolation stage of Fragbite Masters 2014. The team was signed by Aftershock Gaming in April that year, where, after a few roster changes, the team managed to win the Insomnia ASUS RoG Dota 2 Cup LAN in the UK, and GIGABYTE Challenge #9.

That September, the roster left Aftershock Gaming, and began playing under the name Basically Unknown.


Despite MinD_ContRoL nearly completely rebuilding the team's roster on a monthly basis, the team managed to continually win or place highly in various online cups throughout the Winter, and eventually qualified for DreamLeague Season 3. In March, controversy struck the team, as new teammate Ar1sE released a video that featured private scrim results. Four days after joining, on March 18th, Ar1sE was removed from the team by MinD_ContRoL, but rejoined two days later after a team meeting resulted in deciding to give him another chance.[1] After a disapointing start to Dreamleague, MinD_ContRoL left Basically Unknown on May 5th.

Now teamless, MinD_ContRoL played mostly as a mercenary for other teams. He played a few matches with Oslik Gaming, and then was invited to stand in for Burden United after the team mostly disbanded, to finish up their tournament commitments. The team ended up going on a run through the lower bracket of the Game Show Invitational, finishing second. The roster stayed together temporarily as they were now invited to the Hitbox Challenger by Razer, where the team went on win, going undefeated.

Going into the post TI5 shuffle as a free agent, it was revealed that he had joined KuroKy's new team 5Jungz after they were invited to the ESL One New York European Qualifiers.
