The Ukrainian youngster against the legends
Reso is one of the best players on a carry position in the world. The Ukrainian player has reached second place in The International 2016 and was able to gain a slot with Forward Gaming for TI.
Today we'll concentrate on a game where Reso was still a teenager, part of iCCup*. At the time, he was playing with Andrey 'alwayswannafly' Bondarenko, who will be attending TI8 as the position 5 player of Winstrike.
s4 won the midlane against Reso
Although ICCup finished seventh place in League Play, the playoffs were much more successful for the squad. After a 0:2 loss against Virtus.pro - back then with Ilya 'Illidan Stormrage' Pivtsaev and Sergey Antonovich 'Ars-Art' Revin - Reso and Co. were able to start a lower bracket run which ended in the Grand Finals.
ICCup had very few chances against Alliance: the Swedes had one default win, because they came from the upper bracket and won the both following games. This was Alliance's last LAN victory before they ended as TI3 champions.
