Top eSports rookies to look out for in 2016

Syed "Suma1L" Hassan

Dota 2

Out of all the rookies named thus far, Suma1L has had the most explosive eSports career. He started out by achieving top ranks at in-house NA events and making some noise in the Dota 2 community. It was enough because in just one year, Suma1L was picked up by Evil Geniuses to play in the Dota Asian Champions.

At the age of 15, Suma1L shocked the Dota scene by getting signed on to a tier one team with so little professional experience.

EG's manager recognized Suma1L's raw talent and knew he could be the next big Dota 2 star. His transition into professional eSports went better than expected. Despite efforts by enemy teams to shut him down, Suma1L rose as a dominating player during the tournament and helped his team take 1st place. 

With so many great performances so far, it will be interesting to see if Suma1L can precede his reputation in future tournaments.
