Dota 2 / News / 2 February 2018 — 14:38

Lil - a new player of NAVI.GG.BET

Position 4 support is, perhaps, one of the most important roles in the current meta of Dota 2, because thanks to it a team can reach a certain advantage during the early stages of the game. uaIlya "Lil" Ilyuk, who will be playing this position from now on, will most likely bring a lot of diversity into the playstyle of uaNAVI.GG.BET.

We decided to take a look at the profile of the newest uaNatus Vincere player and mark some outstanding moments.

First things first, let's have a look at the win rate of his previous team, the roster has been playing together since August 2016, the squad together with uaLil achieved 69% win rate, with 187 wins and 84 losses. According to caAlan "Nahaz" Bester, this is the third best win rate among the teams that played more than 200 games together.

Lil's top 10 heroes on pro scene.

Regarding uaLil's general stats: according to DotaBuff, he has played 1104 games on pro scene, with a 60.14% win rate and an average KDA of 3.18, which is one of the best results among position 4 players. As to the latest data, over the past 6 months, Ilya's KDA was 3.39.

The most picked heroes would hardly come as a surprise to anyone: [;ua:]Lil's most picked, a truly signature hero, is Visage - 93 games with 60.22% win rate. The second and third places are taken by Skywrath Mage and Io, with 73 games/58.9% win rate and 65 games/60% win rate respectively. However, it is notable that it has benna while since Ilya played either of those heroes: the last time they appeared in ruVP's drafts was more than 2 months ago. 

But let's take a look at a more relevant and interesting information: over the last 3 months, the new player of uaNatus Vincere played 28 heroes, which is 12 more than the previous player on this position. The most popular hero became, not too surprisingly, Night Stalker (11 games). The next ones are Earth Spirit (9 games), Clockwerk and Tusk (6 games each).

It is noteworthy that Ilya has a few tricks up his sleeve that can be used as an element of surprise. So, uaLil can play Queen of Pain, Sven, Phantom Assassin or Weaver. At one point, it was Ilya who actually introduced position 4 Weaver, who does not farm as much, into the meta. Also, the choice of those heroes is not a whim: Ilya knows how to play them in their roles.

We are sure uaLil will bring a lot of diversity to uaNatus Vincere gameplay thanks to his diverse hero pool. Aside from that, Ilya knows how to use various heroes in unusual roles, which will likely give the draft of uaNAVI an element of surprise, capable of catching opponent off-guard. We are looking forward to the games of uaNAVI's new roster! #gonavi
