Sumail Hassan is a young Pakistani pro gamer that forms part of Evil Genuises Dota 2 roster.
Where it all began:
At seven years old, he started playing Dota 2 at Internet Cafes. In the Summer of 2014, his family emigrated to America living in Illinois, that opened up the opportunity for SumaiL to pursue his dream in gaming.
He began playing at the NA Dota Elite League becoming the highest rated player. At just fifteen, SumaiL was a rising star in the North American esports scene. He proved everyone with his gaming skills through his excellent Storm Spirit gameplays that reach high level with other professional solo mid laners.
Hassan’s strategic abilities and skills impressed UNiVeRsE who encouraged EG to recruit him in 2015. SumaiL is so committed to his goal to be the best solo mid of Evil Genuises, training for hours that sometimes he forgets to eat. When Hassan has the time, he enjoys the simple cheese pizza.
SumaiL is a gifted gamer practising Dota 2 for nine hours daily with a passion and self-confidence. He likes the pressure that every match brings for he is known to lure his opponents into a trap playing Alchemist. If he had to choose to play a Dota 2 character for life, it would have to be Storm Spirit or Shadow fiend.
SumaiL’s first LAN was the Las Vegas Dota 2 League Season 5 finals that were held on the 6th January 2015, where the Evil Genuises lost to Virtus Pro coming in third place.
The next event Hassan attended was the Dota 2 Asia Championships 2015, SumaiL’s performance helped them rank first, securing a jaw-dropping $1.2 million prize. Another great accomplishment for SumaiL was winning TI5 with a prize of over an amazing $6 million for EG. This record made Hassan the youngest player in esports to earn a million in prize money.
