Team Spirit support Myroslav “Mira” Kolpakov shares his strategy to stop Gaimin Gladiators ace Quinn “Quinn” Callahan
The undeniable success of Gaimin Gladiators is undoubtedly the result of collective teamwork and synergy, but it’s impossible to overlook the pivotal role played by the team’s midlaner, Quinn “Quinn” Callahan. Throughout his tenure with the team, the 24-year-old has consistently been a standout performer in the midlane. His contributions have been instrumental in Gaimin Gladiators’ triumphs on the competitive stage.
How to Stop Quinn? Mira has It All Figured Out!
Recently, in an insightful interview with Ukrainian caster Oleksii “STORM” Tumanov, Myroslav “Mira” Kolpakov, the support player for Team Spirit, shed light on his strategy for dealing with the formidable Quinn in the midlane. Mira’s approach to neutralizing Gaimin Gladiators talisman involves proactive support play by ganking his lane multiple times and securing kills.
In the interview, Mira candidly analyzed Quinn’s performance and expressed his perception of a downturn in the latter’s gameplay in contrast to his prior achievements. This analysis was a key component of Mira’s comprehensive discussion, which revolved around the strategies and methods employed to place a player as skilled as Quinn on the defense during the early phases of a match.
“Quinn used to be (Strong), now he doesn’t sweat as much anymore, he’s worse at it. I’ve already realized that if he’s at mid, I just run to the mid, kill him twice, and he always breaks stuff. I already know how to beat him now.”
Quinn Eager to Reclaim His Form following DreamLeague Season 21 Disappointment
Quinn is undoubtedly determined to reclaim the remarkable form that he showcased for a significant portion of this competitive season. This aspiration comes on the heels of a somewhat challenging period for him and his team, Gaimin Gladiators, particularly highlighted by their 7th-8th place finish in DreamLeague Season 21 in September.
Rough tournament. Pretty disgusting performance from me, will try to be better at TI

After the DreamLeague Season 21 event, the midlaner openly addressed his individual performance on Twitter. In a candid and commendable move, he acknowledged that his personal gameplay during the tournament had fallen short of his own high standards.
Gaimin Gladiators Remain TI12 Favorites
Despite a recent tournament setback, it’s crucial to recognize that Gaimin has undeniably enjoyed a stellar year in professional Dota 2. Their performance in the past year ranks among the most dominant runs in the history of the game.
While their DreamLeague Season 21 campaign was undeniably lackluster, Gaimin’s overarching success demonstrates their capacity to rebound and learn from their experiences. As they set their sights on The International 12 (TI12), the Dota 2 community can expect Gaimin to enter the competition with an unwavering sense of determination, vigor, and confidence.
Team Spirit are One of the Contenders Too
Team Spirit, on the other hand, had a quiet start to the season, but they showed steady improvement and growth over time. As The International 12 (TI12) approaches, they are shaping up to be one of the most formidable opponents that Quinn and Gaimin will face in the tournament. Mira’s side will enter the fray hot on the heels of their Riyadh Masters 2023 and DreamLeague Season 21 success. Scheduled to kick off on October 12, 2023, TI12 promises to be a fiercely competitive event, and Team Spirit’s upward trajectory positions them as a significant threat on the Dota 2 battleground.
