RAMZES666’s personal milestones keep adding up as he has made an appearance in yet another brand advertisement. Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev has become the Russian telecommunications company’s brand ambassador, Rostelecom, and starred in one of their commercials as the Dota 2 hero Anti-Mage. The Russian will be the face of the company in regards to their gaming services, products, and all the related campaigns over the course of this year. RAMZES666 has represented top multinational companies like Nike and Head & Shoulders in the past and also unveiled his personal new brand “666” in December 2020.
RAMZES666 becomes the brand ambassador of Rostelecom
RAMZES666 has collaborated with the Russian company along with two other personalities with a gaming background. The commercial also features two-time World of Tanks world champion, Dmitry “LeBwa” Palaschenko, and famous Russian streamer, Alina "AlinaRinRin" Rin.
Alexey Stepuro, Director of the Gaming Division of Rostelecom stated on the partnership with the three brand ambassadors,
“Our ambassadors will not only increase the recognition of the “Game” tariff and services for gamers, but also act as the most demanding users because to win online games, both themselves and other players need high speed, stable connection, low ping, as well as bonuses and advantages in games.”

In addition to becoming the brand ambassador for some popular brands, the Russian was also featured in the Russian men’s GQ magazine in November 2020, where he talked about his journey as an esports player, the effect of the pandemic on esports, and his experience with Evil Geniuses.
RAMZES666’s professional career has unfortunately not been as successful as his personal brand lately. He did not have a successful year in 2020 and then did not participate in the 2021 DPC Season 1. He has been away from competitive Dota 2 for nearly three months now. However, on February 10, 2021, rumors emerged, according to which he and his former Virtus.pro ally, 9pasha, will soon be unveiling their new roster.
