Kurtis ‘Aui_2000’ Ling is a Canadian Dota 2 top player, known as the carry for Team NP. Ling’s gaming experience has made him more knowledgeable of the video game to help the squad win tournaments. He has previously played with world famous units like Evil Genuises, Cloud 9, Digital Chaos and Team Dignitas.


Where it all began:

Kurtis was nine years old when his interest in the video games like Dota led him to play for fun. Aui_2000 started competing competitively in the University of British Columbia Starcraft club, under the nickname ValiditySAGA. While studying Sociology at University Loomis worked two jobs at the same time, as a stacker in a supermarket and as a preschool janitor to keep up with his expenses and interest in gaming.


Aui_2000 began his Dota 2 career in 2012 with PotM Bottom after having heard that The International 2012 was offering a jaw-dropping $1.6 million prize pool. He made it his goal to be the best, by training so eventually he could be a participant at an esports tournament like TI.

The Team: 

Aui_2000 joined the new dota 2 Team NP which was created in September 2016. Forming part of the NP dota roster include Kurtis, EternalEnVy, MSS, SVG and 1437 who together train and practice to be one of the best teams in the esports scene.

Throughout his gaming experience, Kurtis acquired the skills to be support and carry with the ability to master a wide range of Dota 2 characters like Morphling, Tiny and Lone Druid.

Competition Participation: 

Aui_2000 was with Team Dignitas when he first attended the esteemed competition, The International 2013. His goal was achieved with an invitation to TI3, but NP’s performance was not so good, in fact they finished in 9th to 12th place.

ESL One Genting Malaysia

The latest event Team NP have participated was at the ESL One Genting 2017 held on the 7th January in Malaysia. In this esports tournament, the squad lost to Virtus.Pro, ranking between the 5th to 8th place and claiming $10K prize. 


TI5 dota championship

One of Kurtis’ greatest wins was at TI5 in 2015, reaching the finals playing for EG vs CDEC Gaming. In the end Evil Genuises were crowned the winners of The International, walking away with the reward of mind-blowing $6.6 million.
