15-year old Alan “Satanic” Gallyamov recently set an astonishing record that impressed the international Dota 2 community and has made him a transfer target for Eastern Europe’s powerhouse, Team Spirit, before the end of the 2023 competitive season.
According to his latest track record, Satanic has reached over 12,000 MMR with his second account named “King” and is sitting in the top 20 of the European Dota 2 leaderboard. He has a win rate of 60.8% in the last 8 days, with the majority of his victories coming from Naga Siren and Morphling. Additionally, he frequently plays with world class players such as Vladyslav “Crystallize” Krystanek, Artour “Arteezy” Babaev, Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu, Illya “Yatoro” Mulyarchuk and Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko.
The achievement came as a surprise, given that the server he played on was very far from his hometown, Vietnam. Furthermore, it is worth noting that his second account once sat in the top 10 of the SEA Dota 2 leaderboard around June.
Between his school and stream activities, he once participated in the SEA Dota 2 competition as a carry for the UltimateDota team for the DPC SEA 2023 Open Qualifier Tour 2. The team’s streak was ultimately stopped in the quarter-finals when they faced Team Tough. However, his performance during the competition piqued the interest of several major European organisations, and Team Spirit is said to be the frontrunner to land his signature.
According to claims that circulated a few weeks ago, Spirit has reportedly offered Satanic a contract to join them before the end of the 2023 season, planning to sign him as a content creator until he reached the legal age to become their regular player. Considering his Russian origin, he shouldn’t have any trouble in communicating with the majority of Spirit’s members.
Given such an exceptional track record at a young age, Satanic has the potential to replicate the success of Syed “Sumail” Hassan, who rose to prominence as the youngest professional for Evil Geniuses in 2015. Nonetheless, he stated that he will consider a career as a professional only after completing his studies.
