Sumail Hassan’s team, Evil Geniuses, bagged $2 million at the DOTA The International ’16 which concluded over the weekend.
Originally from Karachi, Sumail moved to Chicago to play DOTA on faster internet connections and lower pings. He shot to fame by doing exceptionally well in the North American in-house gaming league.
This caught the attention of one of the biggest e-gaming team, Evil Geniuses. He was eventually recruited by the team manager, who himself had been a DOTA 2 player in the past. The rest is, as they say, history.
