Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi is a professional Dota 2 player who is currently playing for Team Liquid.

Biography[edit]

Amer was born to a Polish mother and Jordanian father. He holds dual citizenship.

Dota 2[edit]

Miracle- joined Balkan Bears at the beginning of 2015, only to be removed from the team about four months later. While he was teamless, he began gaining recognition in the European scene by climbing the matchmaking rating leaderboards in pub games. Miracle- eventually became the #1 player by MMR in the European division and the world, surpassing w33. After achieving the #1 MMR ranking, he was invited to join (monkey) Business, a new team formed from the post-TI5 reshuffle. The team reformed as OG after being sponsored.

OG qualified for the first ever Dota 2 Major, the Frankfurt Major and managed to win the tournament in an unexpected series of upsets, with Miracle- showing high level performances on Shadow Fiend throughout the tournament. His impressive abilities prompted many other teams to respect ban the hero. After the Frankfurt Major, Miracle- later won numerous tournaments with OG during mid 2016, such as DreamLeague Season 5 and ESL Frankfurt 2016, while also claiming his second Valve Major win in Manila. [1] Despite OG being one of the favorites for winning The International 2016, they exited early in the tournament, losing to TnC Gaming in the second round of the lower brackets at the main stage, marking one of the biggest upsets in Dota 2 history. [2] Following the tournament, he later departed the team and joined Team Liquid after FATA- announced his temporary break from professional Dota. [3][4]

On May 11th, 2016, Miracle- became the first player in Dota 2 history to achieve a matchmaking rating of over 9000. [5] He later won the eSports Rookie of the Year 2016 by the eSports Industry Awards. [6]
