The wait is over... OUR NEW MID IS HERE! Introducing... ⌐◨-◨→@Copy_Yonagi. Currently ranked #91 in Europe, 23 years old, and from Germany — You probably don't know him yet but you will soon, welcome to the team!,” tweeted nouns, welcoming its new mid-laner to the team. 

According to Liquipedia, Copy’s real name is Philipp Bühler and he is a 23-year-old that hails from Germany. Since he has mostly played in Tier 2 and Tier 3 teams before, not much is known about this new talent. However, with a little bit of digging on the Dotabuff website, we were able to uncover his most-played heroes and it included some of the nasty mid-laners to watch out for.

His most-played hero is Tinker with over a thousand recorded games, a hero that’s been out of the Dota 2 pro scene for a while. Second is Storm Spirit and third is Invoker.

Following the current meta of mid-laners, Copy seems to be practicing Razor mid in recent times, possibly gearing up for the upcoming qualifiers and tournaments.

His previous teams included Ivy and Ninja Penguins.

He was last seen playing at the ESL One Birmingham 2024 Western Europe Closed Qualifiers for Ninja Penguins. During the qualifiers he went up against some big teams like OG, and Team Secret and even though his team failed to qualify or win a game against these Dota 2 giants. It seems like his performance has certainly impressed some people over at nouns.
