Ramzes Gets Emotional While Talking About the Lull In His Career

L1ga Team’s Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev who’s been out of the limelight in recent times got emotional during a recent Twitch stream when a viewer asked why his career has seen a dip in recent times. Ramzes was once one of the most popular Dota 2 players in the scene but recently, he has been struggling to find success in the professional landscape.

During his career, he’s been part of some iconic teams such as Team Spirit, Evil Geniuses, Virtus.pro, and 9Pandas. Ever since he left 9Pandas to join L1ga Team, Ramzes has seemingly fallen off the radar of the Dota 2 community.

Ramzes’ Depreciating Dota 2 Career

Once renowned as one of the world’s best carry players, L1ga Team’s Ramzes was reportedly seen brimming with emotion when answering a Twitch donation prompt.

According to the transcript and translation provided by , the donation read, “What do you think is the reason for your decline in the game? Previously, for your sake, any team would throw their carry. You even used to have an aura like Miracle-” The viewer compared his skills with the likes of Nigma Galaxy’s Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi.

Ramzes, in a state of emotion, reportedly replied, “That’s it, the aura’s gone. What kind of stupid questions are these? I’m actually [shocked]. What the hell is the aura? Who’s Miracle-? Where is he? What Miracle-? What are you talking about?” 

Ramzes has been part of some big-name teams in his Dota 2 career but gained traction during his time with Virtus.pro. During his time with Virtus.pro from 2016 to 2019, he won multiple tier 1 tournaments and established himself as a formidable carry. His achievements with Virtus.pro include:

  • 1st place at ESL One Hamburg 2017

  • 1st place at ESL One Katowice 2018

  • 1st place at The Bucharest Major 2018

  • 1st place at ESL One Birmingham 2018

  • 1st place at The Kuala Lumpur Major 2018

  • 5th-6th place at The International 2017 

  • 5th-6th place at The International 2018

Following a disappointing performance at The International 2019 where Virtus.pro ended its run with a 9th-12th place, Ramzes left the team to join Evil Geniuses (EG). However, Ramzes started to see a decline in his career after this move. 

He was moved to EG’s inactive roster in 2020 and eventually left the team in 2021. That same year he tried to re-launch his career with Na’Vi but was let go after a short four months. Ramzes rejoined Virtus.pro in 2022 but failed to replicate his former success with the team and was let go after failing to qualify for The International 2022.

He spent a few months with random teams and playing in different tournaments. While playing for Hellraisers, his talent was acknowledged by 9Pandas, and was drafted into its debut roster. Ramzes spent 2023 trying to secure a win for the newly formed team but failed in all attempts. He was released from the team in December 2023 following an altercation between himself and his teammates.

At the start of 2024, Ramzes joined the newly formed L1ga Team. However, the pro player is struggling to find any success as L1ga failed to qualify for some of the major tournaments of 2024. It should be noted that L1ga Team has been invited to the Games of the Future 2024, an offline tournament that is set to kick off on 25th February.
