Some answers from an interview with Dosi to Alexey “OverDrive” Biryukov

Remember the first time you played CS?

This happened in Ufa at the RTI Internet cafe. For about a year, I played Half-life, StarCraft, and WarCraft there, but at some point, they brought us a CD with CS, and we installed the game on all computers. I still remember shooting the bridge with AWP from my favorite position on Dust – from the balcony.

Do you remember your first team and tournament?

I was 12 years old, and I had to go with my team to a neighboring city. To do this, I needed a passport, but since it can only be obtained at the age of 14, I had to present a birth certificate, which I forgot a little earlier in the summer camp. In the end, I was unable to travel, so my first experience can be considered unsuccessful.

How did you come up with your esports nickname?

Initially, as a child, my name was Dosa. However, over time, everyone began to call me Dosia, and this nickname finally stuck with me. I even got used to him and decided not to leave him, even after switching to e-sports.

How did the nickname Dosia X God come about?

Once upon a time on the forum, fans started an ironic vote for those who deserve the most attractive player’s title. I won. And then Groove decided it was actually a cool idea, and made a whole show out of it, creating a video that went viral and forever stuck to me the extended nickname Dosia X God.
