Dota 2 legend Johan “N0tail” Sundstein revealed that Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan texted him after the latter led Team Aster to a huge win over Team Spirit in the ESL One Berlin Major 2023.
SumaiL, who is currently playing as stand-in for Team Aster, played against the reigning The International champion in the first round of the lower bracket where he led the Chinese squad to a quick 2-0 sweep of Team Spirit.
During the Berlin Major broadcast, N0tail revealed that SumaiL immediately sent him a message after he eliminated Team Spirit from contention.
“You know what SumaiL texted me after he knocked out Spirit? He’s like “Revenge bro”, TI10 you know? People remember this when they go to bed every night. It’s something that you’ll never forget,” said the OG founder.

The exchange between SumaiL and N0tail revealed a deep-rooted competitive spirit and a burning motivation to achieve greatness.
