Where it all began:
Kuro was four years old when he developed an interest in video games starting with Nintendo. Kuroky suffered a disability in his legs when he was younger, which made him decide to go into the world of computer gaming.
Over the years, video games had become a means of escape from his problems. Takhasomi grew to love gaming more than anything else and focused on becoming the best. KuroKy’s goal as a gamer is to win TI 7 event which he has fullfilled as an active professional player.
Kuroky is presently with Team Liquid, a European esports organisation that was founded in 2000. The company has nine teams that specialise in different games such as Hearthstone, Dota, SuperSmash Bros, CS:GO, StarCraft, Overwatch, Street fighter, League of Legends and Halo.
Team Liquid roster is made up of the pro players, MATUMBAMAN, Miracle-, MinD_ContRoL, GH and Kuroky. The Dota unit is known to be silent but deadly with an impressive playstyle that overwhelms their opponents.
