Biography[edit]

Dota 2[edit]

After a period playing as a standin support for various CIS teams, most notably Team Empire, he was taken in by Power Rangers as a member of their team. The team eventually lost their sponsor however, resulting in SoNNeikO leaving to join Na'Vi. After it officially disbanded on October 16, 2015,[1] it was announced few days later that the new Na`Vi team would be created around Dendi and SoNNeikO.[2]

After numerous roster changes within Na'Vi ending with the addition GeneRaL to the squad, SoNNeikO was made captain and drafter for the team. Despite a shaky start at the beginning of 2016 with poor results in major tournaments and unable to qualify for a number of premier tournaments, they managed to show form during the later months of the year. They reached second place at DreamLeague Season 5 and ESL One Frankfurt 2016 and 4th place in The Summit 5. Finally, in July of 2016, SoNNeikO and his team mates defeated Team Secret in the grand finals of Starladder i-league StarSeries Season 2, securing Natus Vincere's first tournament win in nearly 2 years.[3]
