During an interview at the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai WEU qualifier, Topson talked about how he balances his personal life and professional life.
Topson revealed that he plays Dota mostly from home. However, he said he will be joining the team's boot camp soon.

During a recent interview at the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai Western Europe (WEU) closed qualifier, Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen talked about how he balanced his personal life and professional life. Topson explained that while most of his day is occupied by Dota 2 he still manages to find some time for friends and family. 

In September 2020, Topson and his wife welcomed their baby daughter, following which he went inactive from OG. After three years of inactivity, Topson joined Tundra Esports in September 2023.


Topson's Dota 2 Career as a Father

In a recent interview with casters Connor “Mathmagician10” Chapman and Pepijn "Wingblade" Lamers during the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai WEU closed qualifier, Topson was asked how he strikes a balance between his work and personal life.

Wingblade emphasized, “Obviously you’re a dad like you’re pretty well established back in the pro scene now. Do you still have a social life on the side? Or how are you juggling all of this?

Topson then revealed that he plays Dota from home most of the time. He added, “I mean, obviously Dota takes a lot of time but luckily I can do it from home for the most part. Obviously, bootcamps are necessary and I'm also gonna go to bootcamp soon so. Sometimes you have to be away but for the most part, it's like a normal job where you can work from home. It's not that bad. I still have some time to spend time with my friends but obviously Dota takes a lot more time.”

Topson is a two-time TI (The International) champion and has been playing for Tundra since September 2023 but went inactive after the disbandment of Tundra Esports' roster post-TI12.


Although Tundra Esports had a great run at the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai WEU qualifier, it failed to qualify for the main tournament after losing to OG in the qualifying series. OG proved to be Tundra’s biggest competition as Tundra lost all the four games it played against OG during the closed qualifier.

Aside from the defeat handed by OG, Tundra Esports was undefeated in the closed qualifier and played against teams like Entity, KZ Team, Team Tickles, and Team Secret. Since Tundra failed to qualify for the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai, its fans are keen to see how the team fares in the DreamLeague Season 22 closed qualifier for WEU. It should be noted that Tundra beat Team Secret in the first series of the qualifier and is set to face Entity for a spot in the main tournament.
