Career

Early Career

‘Monet’s career began at the end of 2015 when he joined the organisation For The Dream. He joined their 3rd Dota 2 squad, FTD club C to participate in the qualifiers for The Frankfurt Major and the Shanghai Dota 2 Open. Unfortunately, the team qualified for neither of these events and ‘Monet’ left the team after having had played with the organisation for a very short time.

CDEC Avenger

‘Monet’ joined the CDEC organisation shortly into 2016. CDEC already had a main Dota 2 squad, as well as their secondary CDEC Youth squad, but ‘Monet’ joined the Avenger group in March, when their team reformed their roster. CDEC Avenger mostly participated in qualifiers and had very little success. The team placed 2nd at the first two qualifiers, but ultimately, failed to secure an invite to the Main Qualifier. Following The International Qualifiers, the team participated in G-League 2016 and Dota2 Professional League Season 1. Shortly after this, ‘Monet was invited to join LGD.Forever Young.

LGD.Forever Young

For the remainder of 2016, LGD.FY participated in a number of qualifiers for top tier events such as The Summit 6 and The Boston Major, the latter of which the team did qualify for. ‘Monet’ unfortunately, did not attend this event however. For most of the first half of 2017, the team participated in qualifiers and failed to qualify for any major event until May. They qualified for EPICENTER 2017 and Mars Dota 2 League, where they placed 3rd/4th and 2nd respectively. The team managed to qualify for The International 2017 and were complete underdogs at the main event. They finished the tournament 3rd, getting knocked out by Team Liquid in a best of 3 series where they won one game.

Later in 2017, LGD.FY won Dota2 Professional League – Top and placed 3rd at Perfect World Masters. In the beginning of 2018, the team also participated in ESL One Genting and The Bucharest Major, although the team disappointingly placed joint last at both of these events.

International tournaments

‘Monet’ has most notably achieved a 3rd place finish at The International 2017. In addition to this, he has also achieved top 3 at prestigious events including as EPICENTER 2017 and Perfect World Masters.
