Alexei "Solo" Berezin is a professional Dota 2 player currently playing support for Virtus.pro.
On June 16th, 2013, Solo received a lifetime ban from StarLadder for betting fraud against zRage. On the 21st, Solo was officially removed from RoX after admitting his involvement. Later, the ban was commuted to one year.
The amount that Solo won from betting against his own team was $322, although he never received the money. Since then, Dota commentators and viewers frequently use the phrase "322" to mock particularly bad plays, implying that it almost appears that the player in question is attempting to throw the game.
He was playing on Rox.KIS for the first half of 2014 and after unsuccessful attempt dropped in TI4 qualifiers. The Rox squad disbanded and after TI4 Solo joined Team Empire. He has won Excellent Moscow Cup and left the team in December 2014.
In 2015 Solo turned up with his new team XX5 Gaming but this team had no great achievements and disbanded in a couple months later.
Later he joined Vega Squadron. Having won Hitbox EU Championship #2, Yard G2A Fest Ep.1 and Mountain Trail Challenge the team secured a slot in TI5 European Qualifiers. Vega achieved a Wild-Card slot in the qualifiers. At The International they lost to CDEC 1-2, won Team Archon 2-0 and lost to MVP Phoenix 2-1 and did not go further the tournament. Despite the fact that the team failed at TI, it didn't disband. Vega won ESL One New York European Qualifier then won ESL One New York 2015 by beating EG, IG and Team Secret. The victory let Vega participate at The Frankfurt Major 2015 where they finished 9-12.
Vega couldn't participate at Shanghai and Manila Majors and failed in TI6 qualifiers.
Later, in August, Virtus.Pro announced their new Dota 2 squad with XBOCT, God, Noone, Lil and Solo. The final roster was Ramzes666, Noone, 9pasha, Lil, Solo.
