Amer "Miracle-" Barqawi is a half Polish and half Jordanian professional Dota 2 player currently playing for.
Miracle- joined Balkan Bears at the beginning of 2015. However, around 4 months later he was removed from the team. Around the time that he was teamless, he began gaining recognition in the European scene as he climbed the matchmaking rating leaderboards in pub games and eventually became the #1 player by MMR in Europe and the world, surpassing w33. After becoming #1 in MMR, he was invited to join (monkey) Business, a new team formed from the post-TI5 reshuffle. The team reformed as OG after being sponsored.
OG was invited to the first ever Dota 2 Major, the Frankfurt Major 2015 and managed to win the tournament in an upsetting fashion, with Miracle- showing high level performances on Shadow Fiend throughout the tournament and often causing other teams to respect ban the hero.
As of 11 May 2016. Miracle- became the first professional player to reach 9000 MMR.
Following his move to Team Liquid, Miracle was able to achieve back-to-back Starladder i-League victories, by beating VG.J and TNC Pro Team respectively. Before preparing for The International 2017, he would continue to achieve success in both EPICENTER 2017 and DreamLeague Season 7, finishing first place in both competitions.
During the International 2017, Miracle- and Team Liquid would finished the group stages in first position with a record of 13-3, moving them to the Upper Bracket to face Invictus Gaming on the Main Stage. Despite losing to Invictus Gaming in a best of three, Miracle- and Team Liquid would dominate the Lower Bracket by eliminating Team Secret, CIS heavyweights Team Empire and Virtus Pro, LGD Gaming and tournament favorites, LGD.ForeverYoung before sweeping the TI finals against Newbee with a 3-0 scoreline.
