Meet Pakistan’s prodigal son, Syed Sumail ‘Suma1L’ Hasan, who just helped his team Evil Geniuses ‘EG’ win DOTA 2 TI5, bagging around $6.6 million home.
‘Suma1L’ is no stranger to competitive eSports scene and helped his team conquer DOTA 2 Asian Championship earlier this year. Now that his team has won TI5 and are the winners of $6.63 million, ‘Suma1L’ is said to have earned around $1.6 million in his rookie year alone.
TI5 saw world’s greatest DOTA 2 team go against each other. At one hand, we had the Chinese powerhouse CDEC along with LGD and Vici Gaming. And on the other hand, North America’s last beacon of hope, Evil Geniuses.
EG was tasked to do the impossible and take down the titans… and this is exactly what they did. Meeting CDEC in the finals, EG with the help of ‘Suma1L’ defeated CDEC 3-1.
