Tal ‘Fly’ Aizik is a 24-year-old professional cyber athlete that trains in Dota 2, competing in OG. He is currently team captain and provides his supportive role while playing dota heroes like Dazzle, Rubick and Keeper of the Light.
Fly is a talented martial artist in Commando Krav Maga, a sport that teaches you how to defend yourself much like in Dota 2. The virtual game is about being attacked from any direction with no clue what comes next but with the right weapon and proper attacking moves, you can win over your opponent.
Outside of gaming, Tal loves to break off from his daily routine and take his mind off dota, going on hikes and travelling together with his teammates doing some sightseeing especially when competing at International events.
Where it all began:
Tal began playing Heroes of Newerth where he got to know n0tail in 2009 and from then on have been best friends ever since. HoN was on the decline in 2012 and so Tal decided to take on Dota 2 that had a future in esports at International esports events and with so many teams to contend.
