After the successful Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers with Forward Gaming, his new North American team, Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok took some time off recently and went home to Ukraine to visit his loved ones and to make an important purchase with the money earned back at TI6 when he placed second with Digital Chaos.
While he was home he found the time to participate in a Kiev Marathon race and, just before heading back to New York, he also took the time to do a little Ask Me Anything session on his Instagram page for the Russian speaking fans.
Here are some of the questions and answers from Reso’s AMA session:
Q: If you could live a life not related to esports, what would you do?
A: If I had the money, I would go to study. And I would dedicate myself to the business field – I find it very interesting.
Q: Do you regret the time spent on Dota 2 and If yes, why?
A: I never regretted dedicating myself to Dota 2, since it gave me the most beautiful emotions. I have seen many countries and met interesting people. Dota is a huge part of my life.
Q: How did you spend the money won at TI6?
A: I actually didn’t spend them. I paid the taxes in America (in many countries the law says you have to pay the taxes of the cash earned on their territory and USA is no exception to that). And very recently I bought a flat. Everything else you might have heard are lies.
Q: What makes you happy?
A: My girlfriend.
Q: What are your next goals?
A: For this season – to win a few of Majors, to win The International and I want to try to open my own restaurant in Kiev.
Q: What activity besides playing Dota boosts your skill and the game understanding?
A: Communication with the team. Discussing with my teammates about different moments from a game helps me understand more about Dota every time.
Q: What motivates you in life?
A: Successful people who were not afraid and at one point took the risk to do what they liked, people who followed their dream.
Q: Who was your idol in Dota?
A: Dendi. I watched him constantly. He was my idol, and basically, he still is.
