Ren ‘eLeVeN’ Yangwei is the current offlane player for Vici Gaming.
‘eLeVeN’s career began in late 2013. He played on a few small teams before joining his first major team EHOME in 2015. These teams were mostly unsuccessful however. He initially played on the team Subvert before moving to U5 and then Immortal Magneto Gaming. After placing 7th at the Dota 2 Asia Championships, ‘eLeVeN’ joined EHOME.Keen for several months before joining the main EHOME squad.
Initially, EHOME were very successful. Within 4 months of ‘eLeVeN’ joining them, they had won the Dota 2 Radiant & Dire Cup as well as MarsTV Dota 2 League 2015 Winter and placed 4th at The Frankfurt Major. Unfortunately, their results dropped shortly after the New Year, and the team began to fail several qualifiers. However, they qualified for The International 2016 and managed to place 5th/6th at the main event. The team didn’t achieve any notable results for the remainder of the year and after a 13th/16th place finish at Dota2 ACE – Provisional, ‘eLeVeN’ moved into a sub role within his squad for roughly 3 months.
In March of 2017, ‘eLeVeN’ was loaned to LGD from EHOME. LGD were quite successful, as they placed in the top 3 at every event they attended leading up to The International. Altough they only actually managed to win Mrs Dota 2 League 2017, ‘eLeVeN’ helped LGD to finish 4th at The International 2017. In the roster changes that follow The Internationals, ‘eLeVeN’ left LGD to play for Vici Gaming.
After successfully making their way through several qualifiers, Vici Gaming managed to place highly at a number of events. Most notably, eLeVeN’ helped his team to secure 2nd place at Perfect World Masters, and AMD SAPPHIRE Dota PIT League. This success continued into 2018 as the team placed 2nd at both Captains Draft 4.0 and ESL One Katowice.
