A superstar of the Dota 2 world, Artour "Arteezy" Babaev is a Canadian carry who deserves fanfare. When he streams, the Dota world tunes in. When he plays, the Dota world watches. When he does something, the Dota world copies. Arteezy is a true star whose personality transcends his hero in the game.
Arteezy burst onto the professional scene in 2013 as a stand-in for Speed Gaming at MLG Columbus. He was an unknown player at the time but he dominated the mid lane, outplaying known tier 1 players. Speed Gaming won it all that tournament as an underdog, which elevated Arteezy’s reputation. Ever since then, Arteezy’s played on tier 1 teams at the highest level. He’s known for his play on Drow Ranger, Lycan, and Naga Siren, among others.
