Former carry player, Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev recently gave his thoughts on Team Spirit’s newest midlaner, Denis “Larl” Sigitov during a recent livestream. During the off-season, Ramzes666 mutually agreed to part ways with after a disappointing competitive season. However, the decorated carry player managed to find a new roster for the upcoming season in Darkside.

As for Larl, he was released by BetBoom Team at the start of the off-season. However, following a month of rumors and speculation the Russian midlaner was officially signed by The International 2021 (TI10) champions Team Spirit as Alexander "TORONTOTOKYO" Khertek’s replacement.

Ramzes666 believes that depressed kid is better than Larl

According to, former carry player, Ramzes666 recently shared his thoughts on Team Spirit’s midlaner Larl in his recent livestream on Twitch. Ramzes666 has mostly been spending the off-season grinding in public matches while also live streaming on Twitch following his departure from 

During his recent livestream, the five-time Major winner went straight to the point as he stated Larl does not stand out to the community due to his unstable playstyle before shifting his attention to Larl’s teammate, Magomed "Collapse" Khalilov.

“Larl doesn't really stand out to me, to be honest. Collapse is [indescribable] for everyone. Too [indescribable] Collapse on his head in a good way.”

Ramzes666 then went on to claim that current HellRaisers midlaner Gleb "depressed kid" Zyryanov would have been a better choice as the player has rarely lost a 1 vs 1 midlane matchup against Larl.

“If anything, the depressed kid [from HellRaisers] has never lost a match-up to Larl. Even when we played CIS Rejects, he blew him out in every match-up [during the previous competitive season], without a chance at all.”

While Larl has already shown a promising sign on growth as a midlaner following his second place finish with Team Spirit at the recently concluded BetBoom Xmas Show, many within the community believed that Larl will thrive under his new team for the upcoming 2022/2023 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season.

As for Ramzes666, the carry player will play alongside former teammates Vladimir "RodjER" Nikogosian & Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev in a newly formed stack called Darkside for the upcoming season in the Eastern Europe (EEU) region.
