Aydin "Insania" Sarkohi (born June 18, 1994) is a Swedish player who is currently playing for Team Liquid.

He was a former Heroes of Newerth player who switched full-time to Dota 2.


Insania is of Persian descent.[1] He entered the professional Dota 2 scene when he replaced syndereN on Ninjas in Pyjamas.[2] After NiP disbanded a few months later, Insania joined Tuho alongside fellow Swede MiCKe. Both of them were announced to be on the new Alliance roster in November 2017.[3]


  • He is the player with the highest tournament earnings in Heroes of Newerth.[4]
  • Reached 10,000 MMR on September 29th, 2021.[5]
  • He is one of the few professional players that plays Dota 2 with the minimap on the right. When he was younger, he played Guild Wars (where the map is on the top-right), and when he moved to Heroes of Newerth, when given the choice between having the minimap on the bottom-left or bottom-right, he found the bottom-right to be more natural.[6]


  • He is the all time leader in professional matches played (79) and wins (41) as Grimstroke.
