Mark Lehle

Going back all the way to the first Dota game which he played with his mates at LANs, to HoN with his brother and eventually one of the staples of Esports in South Africa, Dota 2.

Habibi

Abdur Kamdar

Abdur-Rahim started playing at the age of 13 in a mix consisting of his brother, sloj, Dr3xus and zark. That mix team attended Vendetta in Durban. Over the years he picked up experience and developed his talent and skill further until he eventually made it to the top of the South African Dota 2 scene.

Doni

Donio Teixeira

Donio has one of the highest MMR Ranks in South Africa, has played for Bravado for 3 years, winning far too many titles to count. Doni has represented Bravado at the WESG in China and Dubai.
