As 2019 is already here, we spoke to several Dota 2 players about their plans for the new year and asked them what are their messages for their fans.
Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok
My biggest dream remains the same – to win The International. Also, I want to launch my own restaurant. For now, it’s only an idea, but I’ve already spoken to some people…
Next, I want to re-launch a league for players in Europe and CIS. I also want our team to consistently be in the top-4.
My New Year’s message is as follows. To be kinder in pub games and etc., so that we move from this toxic atmosphere into an atmosphere of friendship, help and support of each other.
Bogdan “Iceberg” Vasilenko
No goals. Forget about DotA and never remember it. I’m joking.
I’m still thinking about what I want to do in the future. I want to set for myself realistic goals, too much happened to me in 2018.
For the New Year, I wish everyone good and unforgettable emotions, because I believe that a lot of people at least in the CIS, but most likely all over the world, forgot how it is to be happy. People find it harder to find joy in life. The exception are the children, and we could learn a thing or two from them. For adults, everything is so much more complicated. Therefore, I wish to everyone in this new year to receive only the best things they want and the brightest emotions.
Christian “Accel” Cruz
May your heart and home be filled with all of the joy the festive season brings. Have a wonderful New Year everyone!
I wish to everyone who reads this that their goals and dreams are fulfilled and I hope that our team, Playmakers, will bring you reasons to celebrate in 2019! We are a young organization that is learning from its own experiences, a great story to tell to our beloved when we qualify to The International. We are focused to achieve our dream.
Thank you for your continued support and for the warm and kind messages that we receive every day.
Andrey “Ghostik” Kadyk
My goal for 2019 is simple, but difficult to achieve. I want us, NoPangolier, to constantly qualify for the Majors and place high in all the tournaments. I want us to enter the top 5-6 teams worldwide and get to The International. I promise you that we will give our all to make our dreams become real.
Happy New Year to everyone! Thanks to those who support us, we really appreciate it! I wish you all only reasons to celebrate so that 2019 becomes an unforgettable year for you!
Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko
The year is over and it can be summed up by our 5th-6th place at TI8. We basically performed well and I hope we will continue on the same way and will show even better result at the next TI. The International is and has always been our main goal. Nothing changed.
I congratulate everyone on the New Year, I wish you all the best. Play Dota 2, stay healthy, peace to all!
Andrey “ALWAYSWANNAFLY” Bondarenko
Of course, I want to return to the top. Before The International 2018, we were a strong team, but we failed at the beginning of this season. Therefore, most of all I want is to get back on our feet, get our shape back and get to the next The International! I hope we will qualify to the next Major.
New Year is a special holiday when many things really begin anew. It only remains for me to wish that you won’t miss the opportunities that life will present to you, and don’t forget to follow your dream to the end. This is the most important thing in life, and I wish this to everyone!
