Vladimir "PGG" Anosov is a professional Dota 2 player and analitic who last was coach in Fantastic Five.


PGG (plzgogame) is one of the most famous players in CIS scene. Known in his DotA 1 days for his ability to steal Aegis, find and bring talented players from pubs to the professional scene, and to win LAN events against renowned teams with a mix-team of his own. A very emotional and vocal captain that often trashtalks to improve team's morale. He got the nickname "Grand Theft Aegis" for his Aegis-stealing highlight plays on Storm Spirit.

PGG is perhaps best known for his scintillating but inconsistent play on Enigma. He has often landed game-changing Black Holes, for which he gained the nickname "The Blackest Black Hole." However, he is also often ridiculed for frequently casting Black Hole on zero targets. Dota commentators and viewers often refer to a whiffed Black Hole that catches no enemy heroes as a "PGG Black Hole" or simply a "PGG".

PGG is permanent captain of his team TheRetry, infamous for disbanding and rebanding constantly. It often consists of lesser known players that are trying to break into the higher level of competition.
