Team Liquid is back on top of Ti14 and placed tenth in a Major Dota.
Aydin iNSaNiA Sarkohi has many achievements in his Dota 2 career. As with all athletes, he has a fair share of Dota 2 failures, including the infamous iNSaNiA gyro pick. Here we have listed some of his most famous ones.

iNSaNiA locket at DreamLeague S19.
Having returned to DreamLeague Season 19 iNSaNiA lost gear and went into a very big Dota 2 failure, which arguably cost Team Liquid the Grand Finals.
Of course, Team Liquid remains one of the world’s top teams, and as a favorite of the Dota Pro Circuit 2023 (DPC 2023), the most favorite of many tournaments.
It was presumably Liquids destiny to face Gaimin in a full-on grand final at the Berlin Major after what transpired in DreamLeague S19. With $300 in debt and a ticket to the Riyadh Masters 2023 at stake, let’s just say Liquid just missed out a single item.
Never buy one more holy locket.

It was Game 3 (Liquid and Gaimin were tied) and iNSaNiA played Chen. Just moments before a crucial team fight, iNSaNiA dropped his Holy Locket near a jungle camp. Only a few minutes later, iNSaNiA realized that he forgot the important element that helped strengthen his teams, was discovered on the ground by her fellow teammate, Micha Nisha Jankowski. The opposing team didn’t catch up.
It is certainly possible that iNSaNiA has simply misdirected his Holy Locket to drop it while he tried to send back a neutral item from his collection. Even the one in one minute, he queued up the Holy Locket, to buy it for the first time, but this idea was quickly made out of the window.
Without any doubt, the lack of healing for his team would be more difficult for Gaimin to win the next team fight. The DreamLeague S19 grand finals were a real sting, not to rub salt on iNSaNiAs wound. Without the 4:04 game, where iNSaNiAs Chen dropped the Holy Locket, Team Liquid could’ve won the DreamLeague S19 without a decisive game 5.
iNSaNiA Gyro Fail – a Gyro Fail from Ngnia.
Remember that the infamous iNSaNiA Gyro was broken back at the International 9? I do
Taking a ride down memory lane, arguably the most significant incident in TI9 for iNSaNiA was his guise-point/baix misclick. One of the best-of-one series from elimination was the TI9 Playoffs Lower Bracket Round. INSaNiA didn’t have time to ban Gyro, so a random hero was allowed to ban him before letting iNSaNiA pick up.
He decided to get over the train. Despite thinking that he didn’t ban Gyro, he stopped eating. Alliance tried to maintain a calm and focused hope to work around the unorthodox pick but it was just thrown in. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out well for Liquid and iNSaNiAs Gyro failure became one of the largest Dota 2 fails a day.
They named Valve and listed it in the International Archive series “Birs and Gyro”. The documentary was revealed behind the scenes of that failed, and even the words from the Alliances player/manager.
A year after the horrific accident, iNSaNiA is not known for its mischoose. He also mistakenly picked the Faceless Void instead of Void Spirit in the upper bracket round 1 at ESL One Birmingham 2020 versus HellRaisers.
Team Liquid lost his first round but was lucky to win the series, regardless of how difficult he was.
Team Liquid Major Fails, Major Fails, etc.
It’s the year for Team Liquid 2023, except for the chance they can win the Gaimin Gladiators off their throne. But it wasn’t always that sort of thing. In fact, this time last year, Team Liquid was facing a very different set of circumstances that saw them falling before the event on the main stage.
Despite having an error in incorrectly putting his misclicks on his part, iNSaNiA did take the opportunity to apologize to fans on Twitter. It said his drafts were trash and the teams playstyle was not much better. Since the China Dota 2 Super Major back in 2016 has not won a major, Liquid is still not able to win a major.
In Berlin, however, Liquid started cooking in the first place.
If there are things that can’t be said for iNSaNiA, he tries to make up his mistakes. You’re playing Dota 2 and accusing your teammates of the wrong way. He added that he was just not doing his best, but he was not the only one to stop it until 2020 when asked about what missteps happened.
Regardless of the errors and failures that occurred to Dota 2, iNSaNiA remains a member of the World’s best dota 2 players. He’s now one of the only five players on the international ladder who secure a spot in World Twenty23.
