Yaroslav "NS" Kuznetsov (Russian: Ярослав Кузнецов) is a professional DotA player who is considered one of the best supports in the world.
Early Career and VP
NS started his professional career at SAY_PLZ and spent half a year there before joining the maGe, later sponsored by Virtus.pro. With Virtus.pro, NS was alongside ARS-ART, jolie, M.Admiration, and Vigoss as the most successful team in the 6.43-6.48 era of DotA, and NS earned a reputation as one of the best support players of all time.
VP had internal problems, which began after the ASUS Winter 2008, where they were able to get only top-16, and NS left VP to join Rush3d.
TR and Aeon
TR won OSPL Autumn 2009, and was then sponsored by Aeon.
RoX.KIS went to China to participate in a tournament.
NS joined DTS in 2010 and started off with a second placing in ESWC, losing only to eventual champions EHOME. DTS executed a perfect stretegy to counter EHOME in the group stage of WDC. However, later that year, DTS's captain Artstyle left but nevertheless, DTS still won other competitions.
After DTS stopped sponsoring the team, NS and co. was picked up by Moscow Five in which they eventually won OSPL Spring 2011. M5 attended The International and placed 5th, while also attending Electronic Sports World Cup 2011, but sadly didn't get through the group stage. After disappointing performances at ESWC 2011, a conflict in the team resulted in the team splitting up, and NS attended OSPL Autumn 2011 under the team Garaj. However, he was picked up again by M5 after a winning first in OSPL.
NS retired from professional Dota in November 2013.
