Aliwi "w33" Omar first rose to prominence on the pub circuit, topping Dota 2’s MMR leaderboards in the European region. He went pro in 2014 with Balkan Bears, playing in a number of smaller leagues.
He left the team in early 2015 and bounced around between a number of regional squads composed of high-end pro players. Following The International 2015, he slingshotted directly to the top of the pro scene by joining Team Secret.
w33 immediately proved himself as a top talent by helping Secret post a series of strong placements, including first-place finishes at the MLG World Finals and Nanyang Dota 2 Championships. That was followed by a second-place finish in the Valve-sponsored Frankfurt Major.
Secret slowed down a bit from there, but rebounded emphatically by taking first place in the Shanghai Major. While this was an enormous achievement, Dota 2 fans were left stunned when Secret dropped w33 and support player Rasmus "MISERY" Filipsen and replaced them with Evil Geniuses duo Artour “Arteezy” Babaev and Saahil “Universe” Arora.
The shuffle saw w33 and MISERY move to North America to join Digital Chaos. The team underwhelmed throughout the spring, washing out of the Manila Major early and suffering early eliminations from a number of other events. The team managed to qualify for The International 2016 despite that, and broke off on a miraculous grand finals run. The team finished in second place, falling to Wings Gaming 3-1 in the finals.
While the performance was chalked up as a fluke by many, the team showed it had real skills in the following season by placing top-four at the Boston Major and winning ESL One Genting 2017. The team received a direct invitation to the Kiev Major shortly thereafter, but split off from the Digital Chaos organization following an ownership change that saw founder Shannon "SUNSfan" Scotten step away from the brand.
The team competed in the event as Thunderbirds, but was eliminated from the event in the first round. A new sponsor, Planet Odd, was found for the team after it qualified for Epicenter 2017. w33 and the team took second place at DreamLeague Season 7 and Galaxy Battles, but the team disbanded due to its failure to qualify for The International 2017.
The 2017-2018 season was a tough one for w33. He returned to action by forming Mid or Feed with Digital Chaos teammate Martin "Saksa" Sazdov, but the team broke up after just a few months due to poor results. Breaks from competition were interspersed with short stints on other unsuccessful teams, despite the fact he remained an excellent individual talent.
Towards the end of the 2017-2018 season, w33 signed up with South American organization paiN Gaming to become their mid laner. The team qualified for The International 2018 but finished in last place.
w33’s time with paiN continued on from there. He was with the team for the 2018-2019 season, which eventually saw them become sponsored by Chaos Esports Club, a rebranded Digital Chaos. Under both brands, w33 and the South American squad saw consistently poor results. Though they qualified for majors regularly, they struggled to pick up any wins over international competition.
After a last-place finish at the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, w33 announced an indefinite hiatus from Dota 2 as the Chaos EC organization restructured, dropped its Brazilian team, and formed a new European squad for the end of the season. That hiatus only lasted for a short period of time as he was swapped to Team Liquid in exchange for Lasse Aukusti "MATUMBAMAN" Urpalainen.
w33 showed he remained an exceptional talent after landing with another top team. His Liquid Debut was a second-place finish at the 2019 Epicenter Major, which was followed by another grand finals appearance at The International 2019. This time, w33 came up just shy opposite Wings Gaming.
The Team Liquid roster split off from the organization after TI9 in order to form a new brand, Nigma. Nigma posted mixed results following its return to action. The team won the WePlay! Bukovel Minor and WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Mad Moon, while suffering an early elimination from DreamLeague Season 13 and failing to qualify for the ESL One Los Angeles Major. The squad seemingly struggled with coordination and communication, which led to fan speculation that the team still hadn’t fully found its footing with w33.
