5 Young Players Who Can Become Dota 2 TI's Topson 9

The story of the OG team's victory at Dota 2 The International 2018 has become a legend. Not only that, the story of the struggle of the carry Topias ‘Topson’ Taavitsainen is also no less exciting. The youngest player, for the first time competing, immediately took the Dota 2 The International victory for OG. This season, there are also players who have stories like Topson. Who are they? These are 5 of them!


Thian ‘JT-’ Jun Wen - Mineski

JT is the latest carry player from the Mineski team. He can be said as a successor of Mushi who descends to a support position so that he can lead and direct his friends. JT itself is a young player who is only 20 years old, and doesn't have a much professional experience like Topson. Previously he played for Geek Fam for about a year and had not tasted much of the heat of the competition on the international stage.

Michal ‘Nisha’ Jankowski - Team Secret

Joindota.com calls Nisha like the Polish version of Marcus' Ace ’Hoelgaard, carrying the previous Secret team. This player is still very young, only 18 years old, and had time to be with Kinguin's Polish Pride Team who had a surprise too. With secret Nisha plays position 2 midlaner. He managed to play quite well and managed to bring Team Secret to win the PvP eSports Championship, defeat Fnatic.

Idan ‘MagicaL’ Vardanian - Natus Vincere

The name Navi in Dota 2 is always identical to the Danil mainstay midlaner ‘Dendi’ Ishutin. But now the era of Dendi is over, and the successor? There is Magical, a 19-year-old player who has great potential. Magical previously played with the Effect team. Together with Magical Effects, we still don't have much international experience. Navi has so far not made it to the Major, but MagicaL and its seniors certainly still have a chance for Minor competition.

Ding ‘Dy’ Cong - Vici Gaming

The next player came from the Vici Gaming team, the Chinese team which at Dota 2 The International 2018 yesterday performed less optimally and finished in position 9-12. Seeing this they brought a new roster involving a player named Ding 'Dy' Cong.

Interestingly, Dy is a support player from VG Potential, a young player team from Vici Gaming. The last time this player managed to bring the champion for VG. The potential in the second division of Dota 2 Professional League Season 4.

Rolen ‘Skemberlu’ Ong - compLexity Gaming

Finally, there is a Skemberlu carry player for the compLexity Gaming team. Like JT, this player also came from the GeekFam team. This player is arguably the gifted talent found by EE when he played with Fnatic first. Now playing together with compLexity Gaming, Skemberlu's ability is tested even harder. Can he be a good carry for the compLexity team and bring EE and friends to Major?
