Illusion is rising in the ranks in CIS Dota.
Despite being eliminated from ESL One Birmingham Online before the playoffs, Team Unique had a strong showing and have decided to sign Danil “illusion” Volchan to the roster after he served two months as a stand-in.
After briefly playing for FTM, illusion was signed as a stand-in to replace Chuvash, joining Unique for the ESL One Los Angeles Online, where the team placed ninth. Over the next month, Unique went on to perform well in multiple other events, including a second-place finish at WePlay! Pushka League Season One, securing promotion from Division Two to Division One in the next season.
“He performed well when we played ESL LA, then we decided to give him a month to adapt and see which of it will come out,” Unique’s manager Gleb Antokhin said. “This is a fairly long test that has been passed. Danil is a young player, standing at the very beginning of his path, I hope that he will succeed.”
Unique was the only team to defeat Team Secret in the group stage of ESL One Birmingham Online, and with this signing, they have a good roster construct heading in future events.
