Artour "Arteezy" Babaev is a Canadian player from Vancouver, British Columbia. Artour is currently the carry player for Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses. Arteezy has a very popular live stream which showcases his outgoing personality, eccentric taste in music, as well as his exceptional skill. Before playing Dota 2 professionally he played the original DotA as well as Starcraft II.

Professional Career[edit]

Kaipi[edit]

In April 2013, Arteezy joined Kaipi for the summer, along with ComeWithMe.[1] However after just four months, Arteezy left the team and went inactive in order to focus on his studies.[2]

Take Five[edit]

In September 2013, Artour joined Take Five, a casual team of ringers, in order to participate in RaidCall EMS One Fall Americas, which the team would go on to win. Shortly after, Take Five disbanded and Arteezy would again be inactive.

Speed Gaming[edit]

In November 2013 Arteezy had the opportunity to stand in for bOne7 and play for his previous team Speed Gaming.int (formerly Kaipi) at MLG Columbus 2013. Arteezy handily defeated several elite mid-laners, including Mushi and Dendi, en route to an underdog victory for Speed Gaming.int over Team DK in the finals. This would be the first LAN event Artour had attended and his victory had garnered a lot of attention, including 7ckngMad's infamous comments on Artour's skill.

S A D B O Y S[edit]

In January 2014, Arteezy, along with legendary NA Dota players UNiVeRsE and Fear, as well as former HoN players ppd and zai created S A D B O Y S, which had immediate success. The team won 16 out of their first 18 matches, including winning the ESP Shock Therapy Cup while going undefeated.

Evil Geniuses[edit]

In February 2014, Arteezy and company were announced to be the new Evil Geniuses Dota 2 squad.[3] On March 7th 2014 the new Evil Geniuses made their LAN debut at the Monster Energy Invitational, where they won 3-2 against Cloud9 in the finals. With this victory the team quickly began to establish their reputation as one of the best teams in the world, due in no small part to Artour's dominant play in the middle lane on heroes such as Dragon Knight, Naga Siren, and Razor. On April 29th Arteezy and his Evil Geniuses teammates were directly invited to compete in The International 2014. With top 3 finishes at three of the four major LANs prior to TI4, including a first place finish at The Summit over Team DK, Evil Geniuses was one of the favorites to win the biggest tournament of the year.

At TI4 Evil Geniuses had a strong performance in the group stage placing second with an 11-4 record. In the main event Evil Geniuses would beat Team DK but fall to Newbee in the upper bracket. In the lower bracket finals Evil Geniuses would face off against Vici Gaming. The final game of the series was a decisive loss for Evil Geniuses, causing many people to question Arteezy's decision to pick up a late Hand of Midas. Artour and Evil Geniuses ended up going home with a 3rd place finish.

Team Secret[edit]

Arteezy and zai left Evil Geniuses and joined Team Secret on January 6th 2015.[4] This team managed to win 4 tournaments in a row before The International 2015, making them the favorites of the tournament. However, the team ended up placing much lower than expected, prompting Arteezy to leave the team shortly after the tournament concluded.[5]

Return to Evil Geniuses[edit]

Arteezy returned to Evil Geniuses just after The International 2015.[6]

Return to Team Secret[edit]

Arteezy returned to Team Secret just four days before the roster lock for The Manila Major and The International 2016.

Return to Evil Geniuses[edit]

Arteezy returned to Evil Geniuses shortly after The International 2016.
