Kurtis "Aui_2000" Ling is a Canadian professional Dota 2 player who is currently teamless.

Aui_2000 plays mainly as a support, and is well known for his knowledge of the game as well as his signature item: Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos. As well as this, Aui often casts pro games, though he is not affiliated with any particular broadcast company.

Professional Career[edit]

PotM Bottom[edit]

Kurtis started his professional career in 2012 on PotM Bottom PotM Bottom, where he showed much promise with his innovative item builds. After they defeated Counter Logic Gaming in Prodota2 Pro League, they were picked up by Team Dignitas Team Dignitas.

Team Dignitas[edit]

PotM Bottom was picked up by Dignitas in September 2012. The team performed very well, placing high in many premier tournaments. However, after placing 9th in The International 2013, the team disbanded.

Speed Gaming[edit]

After Dignitas disbanded, Aui joined Speed Gaming.int Speed Gaming.int in September 2013. In his new role of support, he popularized the use of Rod of Atos, an item rarely seen in competitive use until then. Speed Gaming was considered one of the best teams in the world, even taking home the gold against Team DK Team DK at MLG Columbus 2013. After that victory, he and his team left Speed Gaming and joined Cloud9 Cloud9.

Cloud9[edit]

Aui joined Cloud9 Cloud9 in February 2014, and while the team did well, it was disappointing that they did not place first in a single major tournament in their time, becoming known by the community as the "Kings of 2nd Place".

Evil Geniuses[edit]

Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses picked up Aui during the "Great Western Re-shuffle". to replace Zai. This new Evil Geniuses squad would go on to become the most successful team of the year, winning both Dota 2 Asia Championship 2015 and The International 2015. On August 15, 2015, Aui made it public that he was kicked from the team and was replaced by Arteezy.[1]

Digital Chaos[edit]

On August 25th 2015 Aui_2000 announced, that he would be joining the newly formed Digital Chaos Digital Chaos[2]. After only 7 months however Aui_2000 left the team[3].

Return to Evil Geniuses[edit]

In March of 2016 Aui_2000 returned to Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses as their Carry player.[4] After the team played below expectations for three months, Aui_2000 got kicked from the team once again to make space for the return of Zai.[5]

Team NP[edit]
