Biography[edit]

Dota 2[edit]

Ilya Ilyuk was born 24 December 1995. Longtime Warcraft and Dota 1 player, he played Dota 2 on a semi-professional level with his friends for 2 years.

In the summer 2014, Ilyuk arrived at the NVMI team that was organized by Goblak at the time. The first place in Game Show League Season 1 was the team's first success, where the line-up defeated Natus Vincere in the final. On 18 September 2014 NVMI's line-up was signed by the Virtus.pro organization. A stand-alone project Virtus.pro Polar emerged for the team, taking the name of ASUS.Polar from January 2015. Lil claimed the title of Dota Pit League Season 2 and StarLadder StarSeries Season 11 vice-champion as a part of the lineup. During the first year of his career, he won more than $300 000.

On 15 April 2015, ASUS.Polar fell under Virtus.pro tag and went on to win DreamLeague Season 3 and Esportal Dota 2 League. However, the roster finished their run in the year's biggest tournament, The International 2015, in the 5-6 place. At the end of the year, Lil claimed the title of The Summit 4 vice-champion.

On March 2016 Lil left the team to join the mix Polarity. After a failed attempt to qualify for the TI6, the team disbanded. In August, Ilyuk returned to the updated Virtus.pro line-up. During their first month, the line-up qualified for all high-level tournaments and also won BTS Europe #4 and The Summit 6. In the ranks of the VP.G2A roster, Lil claimed the 5-8 place in The Boston Major 2016.

On January 2018 Lil left Virtus.pro and joined Natus Vincere.
