Alexander "XBOCT" Dashkevych is a Ukrainian Dota 2 player and currently a member of Natus_Vincere. He is known for carrying the Natus_Vincere to the many trophies.

WarCraft 3: DotA Career

Planet-X

XBOCT began his career with Planet-X's DotA team in 2009, together with Axypa, Amsi, Jerry and Chief. After losing two members as a result of a disappointing lose to DTS followed by the team's failure to perform in subsequent tournaments, the team has disbanded.

Dota 2 Career

Natus Vincere

XBOCT return to Dota Scene, was followed by joining Natus_Vincere in 2010. By joining he has proceeded to help the team to win several major titles and defeat some of the biggest teams in the world. Their first marable result was beating DTS - one of the strongest teams back then, in a showmatch. In the late 2010, XBOCT got accompanied with ArtStyle and Dendi who has also joined the Ukranian team. Those moves in the management has made one of the best teams in the Dota history which will be shown in the near future. The first tournament on which they've attented was ASUS Open Winter, they'd to satisfy with the third place only, by losing to Moscow 5 in the Semi Finals.

In the June of 2011, they acquired LighTofHeaveN and Puppey while Goblak and Axypa left the team.[1] This was around the time where the beta-version of Valve's Dota 2 would start to take up the attention of certain players as the massive tournament The International was coming up in August where the winning team would be awarded with one million dollars. Na`Vi practiced very hard and ended up winning the tournament, as expected by many followers of the scene.[2]

Looking at the statistics of all his official games for Natus_Vincere he has played mostly Anti-Mage and Night Stalker. Anti-Mage was played 23 times with the 15 wins out of it, and Windrunner 17 games with 82% of win - 14 won games. Looking at his GPM, he did the best with Anti-Mage, hitting the 690 GPM average in 23 games, following it with Juggernauts's 628 GPM in 8 games. He was mostly playing Carry role on the safe lane, as that position is his main one.

XBOCT and his team gathered numerous of achievements in 2012 but did not manage to repeat their success at The International,[3] losing the final against Invictus Gaming.[4] Their run at The International 2 has started with poor performance.[5] After two loses and two draw matches at the first day, Na`Vi has managed to secure three wins in a row in the day two, which was enough for the second round. Their journey in the playoffs has started with the match against one of the top Chinese teams, Team DK.[6]. Na`Vi has secured their passing card for the next round of playoffs, after winning 2-1 against Team DK. Their next stop was against another Chinese top team, Invictus Gaming.[7] The result of this match was similiar to the match against Team DK, 2-1. This match has drained a lot of emotions out of Na`Vi players after they've secured their place in the Winner Brackets Finals, where LGD was waiting for them.[8] Na`Vi repeats the same lesson against the third top Chinese team in a row, beating them 2-1 and qualifying for the Grand Finals. History from The International 1 didn't repeat in the Grand Final's of this year's tournament. They've lost against team which they've beated before in the Winners Bracket. Invictus Gaming has managed to beat them 3-1 and to grab the $1,000,000 prize.[9]

XBOCT plays the hard carry role for the team, and is widely known for his insanely proficient ability to farm. Last-hitting those creeps like there's no tomorrow and finding a way to make gold where lesser players just can't, XBOCT often snowballs out of all control in the later stages of games, with signature heroes such as Antimage, Riki and Mirana. However, like everyone else on the team, XBOCT is capable of mixing it up and adapting if the strategy calls for it, and has been seen playing initiators such as Sand King.
