The Dota 2 Live to Win esports team was created by a group of famous esportsmen from the CIS region. The team's main goal is to participate in various tournaments and find an organization for its roster. The team was created in November 2020.
The original team included players such as Rostislav «fn» Lozovoi, Vasily «AfterLife» Shishkin, Alexander «Immersion» Hmelevskoy, Akbar «SoNNeikO» Butaev, and Igor «iLTW» Filatov. The young team immediately tried to realize themselves at the DOTA Summit 13 Online: Europe & CIS. Live to Win met stronger teams at this tournament, so they managed to take only 5-8 places. After this team began to participate in different tournament qualifications. The team managed to take second place at the EPIC League Division 2 Group Stage and received an invitation to the tournament, where the team took second place. Until the end of the year, the team performed in two more tournaments. It is worth noting that they took 3-4 place at BTS Pro Series Season 4: Europe / CIS Live to Win.
