Daryl ‘iceiceice’ Koh Peo Xiang is the current offlane player for Mineski. Before moving to Dota 2,  ‘iceiceice’ was a high-level StarCraft 2 player who competed in the BlizzCon 2010 StarCraft II Invitational. He has gained lots of popularity through his stream and is widely liked for his charismatic character.

Career

Early Career

‘iceiceice’ moved to Dota 2 in 2011 to participate in The International 2011 with Scythe Gaming. They placed 3rd at the event, and were afterwards signed by MYM and later Team Zenith.

Zenith

‘iceiceice’ attended The International 2012 and 2013 with Team Zenith, where he finished 5th/6th and 9th/12th, respectively. At The International 2013, ‘iceiceice’ participated in the 1 vs 1  tournament and won it against top solo players from all around the world. Following their disappointingly early exit, the team disbanded and ‘iceiceice’ joined Team DK.

Team DK

‘iceiceice’ joined ‘BurNIng’ in reforming Team DK after The International 2013. At first, the team struggled slightly, but in 2014, they established themselves as one of the best teams in the professional scene. They won 2013 WPC ACE Dota 2 League, StarLadder StarSeries Season 9 and placed 2nd at WPC 2014. At The International 2014,  Team DK placed 4th, and ‘iceiceice’ once again participated in the 1 vs 1 tournament. This year however, he placed 5th/8th. Following The International 2014, Team DK eventually disbanded and ‘iceiceice’ moved to Vici Gaming.

Vici Gaming

‘iceiceice’s new team quickly established themselves as one of the strongest teams in the pro scene. A 3rd place finish at their debut tournament the World E-sport Championships 2014 and their results in the months that followed demonstrated their potential and set them up to be favorites for The International 2015. They had most notably won StarLadder StarSeries Season 12, and placed 2nd at i-league Season 3 prior to The International, and at the main event the team placed 4th. ‘iceiceice’ stayed with Vici Gaming following their TI result. However, their performance slowly began to decline, as they placed 5th/6th at The Frankfurt Major and 13th/16th at The Shanghai Major. Following their joint last place finish at The Shanghai Major, most of Vici Gaming disbanded.

EHOME

‘iceiceice’ was invited to fill out EHOME’s squad leading up to The International 2016. However, the team had very little success and didn’t win any event other than qualifiers. At The International, the team placed 5th/6th though, which was quite surprising given their lack of success in prior tournaments.

Team Faceless

Following the 5th/6th place finish of EHOME at The International 2016, ‘iceiceice’ decided to form a new team with players from the Southeast Asia scene including ‘Black^’ and ‘xy-‘. However, Team Faceless did not receive results much better than ‘iceiceice’s previous team. They placed joint last at The Boston Major and 5th/8th at The Kiev Major. After failing to qualify for The International 2017,  Team Faceless disbanded and ‘iceiceice’ joined Mineski along with his teammate ‘Jabz’.

Mineski

Mineski won their debut tournament, the World Cyber Arena 2017. Following this, they placed highly at every event they attended and won PGL Open Bucharest. However, as of 2018, their results began to diminish slightly. They placed 9th/12th at ESL One Genting 2018 and at ESL One Katowice 2018.

International tournaments

‘iceiceice’ has attended The International 3 times where he placed 4th twice, and 5th/6th once. In addition, he helped Mineski win PGL Open Bucharest and Vici Gaming win i-League and The Summit 2.
