Djardel Jicko B. ‘DJ’ Mampusti, is the current roaming support player for Fnatic. He previously played under the name of ‘Chrissy’.

Career

Early Career

‘DJ’s career began in late 2013, when he joined Team Eyes of Tiger. This team was quite successful, and they managed to place 4th and then 2nd at Nexon Sponsorship League Seasons 2 and 3. After winning Korean Dota League Tier 2, the team won the relegation qualifiers for KDL season 2 Tier 1 in April. Following this, the team changed their organisation name to Rave but retained their roster. Rave achieved several great results, and for the rest of the year placed top 3 at every event they attended, including i-League Season 1.

In 2015, the team’s results began to waver. They placed 5th/6th at Dota 2 Asia Championships and later placed 7th.8th at The Summit 3. Following this, the team failed to qualify for The International 2015, most of the team members left Rave to form their own team, MSI-Evolution Gaming. However, very shortly after its inception, ‘DJ’ was offered a place on Fnatic, which he accepted.

Fnatic

Fnatic won their debut tournament with ‘DJ’, BTS Southeast Asia #1. However, their results for the rest of 2015 were somewhat mixed, as they placed 5th/8th at ESL One New York, 13th/16th at The Frankfurt Major and also failed to qualify for several events. Their results in 2016 were more impressive however, as the team placed 5th/6th at the Shanghai Major in March, and proceeded to win or place highly at almost every event they attended. Most notably, they finished 3rd/4th at ESL One Manila, 5th/6th at The Manila Major and 3rd at StarLadder i-League StarSeries. Heading into The International 2016, Fnatic were strong contenders for the Aegis. In the end, they placed 4th, losing to Digital Chaos.

Execration

After The International 2016, ‘DJ’ left Fnatic to join Execration, initially as a temporary player. The team initially performed decently, winning MPGL Southeast Asian Championship and ROG MASTERS 2016. However, in 2017, the team’s performance decreased sharply. They failed to qualify for several events including Dota 2 Asia Championships, StarLadder i-League StarSeries and The Kiev Major. Following this streak of poor results, ‘DJ’ left Execration to once again join Fnatic.

Fnatic

‘DJ’ was now back in the ranks of Fnatic, although the team surprisingly performed poorly at several qualifiers and had a very rough start. However, the team most importantly managed to qualify for The International 2017. Fnatic unfortunately, placed joint last at the main event. Several roster changes later, the team’s results began to improve and this was reflected by 7th/8th place finishes at ESL One Hamburg and DreamLeague Season 8. In addition, the team placed 2nd at DOTA Summit 8 and 4th at ESL One Katowice in early 2018.

International tournaments

‘DJ’ has spent a large part of his career playing for Fnatic and has most notably helped them to achieve 4th place at The International 2016, 5th/6th place finishes at The Manila Major 2016 and The Shanghai Major 2016 and more recently had achieved 4th at ESL One Katowice. One of ‘DJ’S earliest achievement was 5th/6th at Dota 2 Asia Championships 2015, with Rave.
