No[o]ne talks about his possible retirement

During a recent guest appearance on Russian Dota 2 streamer AleksandrNixLevin’s Twitch channel, Entity’s midlaner VolodymyrNo[o]ne-Minenko reportedly threatened to give up the game if he continued to lose matches. But he stated right away that he loves the game and would continue to play as long as that love endures. Notably, Entity, a squad led by No[o]ne-, hasn’t had much luck in professional competitions lately. The group was not selected for ESL One Birmingham 2024, BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai, or DreamLeague Season 22.

Recently, Ukrainian mid-laner No[o]ne disclosed on Nix’s Twitch that he had contemplated giving up Dota. When they asked him during the live stream if he had ever thought about giving up his career, he said, “Of course. When you suck for a long time, yeah. My stance is: if I suck, I won’t play. I have big ambitions, a desire to win, I try very hard. If I keep losing, it’s better to go in some other direction. That’s if I play badly.

As a member of Entity, Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko took part in three tier-1 tournament qualifiers in the Western Europe area in January. Nevertheless, the group was unable to produce noteworthy outcomes in the competitions. Entity suffered two loses in the upper and lower brackets and was eliminated in the first round of the BetBoom Dacha Dubai 2024 qualifications. The team advanced to the lower bracket final of the DreamLeague Season 22 qualifications, where they were defeated by Team Secret. The team also advanced to the lower bracket final of the ESL One Birmingham 2024 qualifications, however they lost to Tundra Esports in the competition for the one spot in the region’s grand finals.

Between 2016 and 2020, when he was a member of Virtus.pro, No[o]ne became well-known. He established himself as a formidable opponent. No[o]ne-‘s accomplishments with Virtus.pro include winning the Bucharest Major in 2018, ESL One Birmingham in 2018, Kuala Lumpur Major in 2018, and first-place results at ESL One Hamburg in 2017. Additionally, he placed fifth or sixth at both The International 2017 and The International 2018. After splitting from Virtus.pro, it appears that No[o]ne is past his prime. He became a member of Na’Vi in 2021 and attempted to use the Eastern Europe qualifier to get into The International 2021. But Na’Vi was eliminated by the BetBoom Team. Even though Na’Vi was given another opportunity to make The International 2021 through the last-chance qualifier, it was insufficient as it was defeated by Xtreme Gaming.

No[o]ne relocated to Southeast Asia to join Team SMG in an effort to restart his Dota 2 career. Although Team SMG was able to secure a spot in The International 2023, they tragically placed 17th through 20th at the end of the competition. The professional athlete then joined Entity, but he hasn’t yet found success with his new side, so his pursuit of greatness continues.
