Virtus.Pro’s offlane, Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok told how he began his career in eSports. In an interview with the Transformer YouTube channel, he recalled how he moved to Kiev at the age of 14 to train and participate in tournaments at Kiev Cybersport Arena.
"I got acquainted with games quite early - about ten years old. The guys and I started going to the computer club. They played Heroes of Might and Magic III, StarCraft, Warcraft, Quake and CS. At that time, the culture of gaming was just beginning. There wasn’t much online then, and we were playing on a grid with a friend.
I was interested in a lot of things, but at some point I concentrated on two disciplines: StarCraft and the map in Warcraft III - DotA Allstars. In it I saw that many players play many different tournaments, and at that time for me it was "wow, I want to be a part of this." Something caught fire in me, and for this I moved from my city to Kiev at the age of 14. At that moment, the Kiev Cybersport Arena was built there, where many tournaments were held and many cool players trained. I understood that I needed to be there to communicate and meet people, to raise my level, as I was very weak. " Reso shared.
Resolut1on started performing professionally on the Dota 2 scene in 2013. At various times he represented RoX.KIS, Team Empire, Chaos, Thunderbirds, Planet Odd, OG, Forward Gaming and other teams. He also reached the final of The International 2016. Fominok won over $1.4 million in seven years.
