Arteezy's thoughts on Yatoro and Nightfall


Arteezy shares his thoughts on who amongst Yatoro and Nightfall is the better carry
He points out Yatoro has a high risk gameplay that yields high rewards whereas, Nightfall is on the safer side.

In a recent live stream on, renowned Dota 2 player Artour "Arteezy" Babaev rated Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk and Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko. Yatoro, representing Team Spirit, and Nightfall, a member of BetBoom Team, have long been subjects of comparison within the Dota 2 community, prompting discussions on who holds the title of the superior carry.

Even Dota 2 personalities such as Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski and Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan have weighed in on the matter. Gorgc proclaimed Nightfall as the overall best carry, citing Yatoro's peak performance at the International 2023, while Sumail expressed a preference for Yatoro, placing Nightfall outside the top five carries.

Arteezy’s Thoughts on Yatoro and Nightfall

Arteezy, delving into the discourse, highlighted a fundamental contrast between the two players. He emphasized that Yatoro tends to embrace a riskier playstyle during high-stakes matches, reaping substantial rewards when those risks pay off. Contrarily, Nightfall adopts a more standard approach, opting for a safer gameplay style with fewer risks.

"Yatoro just plays better, and in the really high-stakes matches, he takes more risks, and it’s more rewarding," Arteezy explained. Yatoro's penchant for high-risk plays stems from his exceptional mechanical skills and unwavering confidence, allowing him to execute calculated risks that catch opponents off guard.

Yatoro's high risk playstyle has been a key part in Team Spirit's recent success. One memorable instance of this happened during the BetBoom Universe: Episode I - Comics Zone in a game against Ooredoo Thunders (now PSG Quest. While Ooredoo Thunders were looking to secure Roshan, Yatoro teleported to the bottom lane and started to hit the towers all by himself, forcing all five players of the team to teleport back to defend their base or lose barracks. Yatoro barely made it out, this high-risk gameplay led Team Spirit to secure Roshan, which eventually led to his team's victory.

This is in contrast to Nightfall's tendency to adopt a more standard and risk-averse gameplay style. Arteezy said, "Egor plays more standard safe but uh it seems like it's harder to win in the big Stakes games cause it's not that simple I guess got to take risks a little bit."

The ongoing debate within the Dota 2 community regarding the superiority of Yatoro or Nightfall adds an extra layer of intrigue to the esports scene. Fans remain divided in their preferences, contributing to the dynamic and engaging nature of Dota 2 esports as enthusiasts closely follow and applaud the efforts of their favorite players.
