Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok made his pro debut in the ASUS Open 2012 Finals with Wzriv Paketi. The appearance was a one-off, but afforded Resolut1on the opportunity to prove himself against some of the best teams in the region at the time and paired him with Andrey "ALWAYSWANNAFLY" Bondarenko, who he would spend a few years playing with.
The duo moved on to iCCup, a team that stayed active but posted underwhelming results with the exception of a second-place showing at StarLadder StarSeries Season 6. Resolut1on and the team split from iCCup from there, but continued competing as Terrible Terrible Damage. The team lasted just a short time as the roster’s players were picked up by larger teams, with Resolut1on landing with Virtus.pro.
Virtus.pro’s roster after The International 2013 would post underwhelming results, which resulted in Resolut1on’s release just two months later. He joined Team Empire shortly thereafter, reuniting with ALWAYSWANNAFLY.
This new Team Empire peaked the following spring, winning numerous events and notching strong placements in StarLadder StarSeries Season 9 and DreamLeague Season 1. Resolut1on headed to The International for the first time at TI4 as Empire received a direct invitation to the event. Despite being one of the stronger teams on paper, Empire was eliminated in 13th place.
Resolut1on and ALWAYSWANNAFLY remained a part of Empire for the following season. The team enjoyed a level of success similar to the year prior, winning a number of prominent LAN events including joinDOTA MLG Pro League Season 1 and Dota 2 Champions League Season 5. Empire once again received a direct invitation to The International but suffered another underwhelming finish, this time landing in ninth place.
Resolut1on remained with the team after the event, but ALWAYSWANNAFLY was released. Empire underwent numerous shuffles in the following weeks stemming from the team’s failure to qualify for the Frankfurt Major. After the team failed to qualify for the Shanghai Major, Resolut1on would leave as well.
Instead of staying in the CIS region, Resolut1on made the surprise move to North America in order to join Digital Chaos. Digital Chaos struggled terribly early on and was almost entirely reset after having numerous members of its roster poached by Evil Geniuses.
The team rebuilt around Resolut1on, and found much greater success including qualifying for a string of live events at the end of the season. This included earning a spot in The International 2016, an event which saw Digital Chaos post a shocking grand finals run where they were defeated by Wings Gaming.
Though DC didn’t win The International 2016, the team seemed to gain a lot from the experience and started the following season strong with a top-four finish at the Boston Major and a win at ESL One Genting 2017.
Ahead of the Kiev Major, Digital Chaos’ roster abruptly split from the organization and began competing as Thunderbirds. A last-place finish at the event saw the team passed over for a direct invitation to The International 2017, and while they posted solid performances in other events after finding a new sponsor in Planet Odd, their failure to qualify to TI eventually led to their dissolution.
Resolut1on then briefly reunited with Team Empire, standing in for the team when Vladimir "Chappie" Kuzmenko was unable to obtain a visa. He helped the team achieve a surprise top-eight finish at The International that year.
The post-TI7 shuffle saw Resolut1on move to Europe to join OG as the team’s mid laner. Despite Resolut1on’s prowess and OG’s pedigree of success, the team struggled throughout most of his tenure, with the sole exception being a first-place finish in the MDL Macau minor. Resolut1on split from OG and returned to North America with VGJ.Storm ahead of The International 2018.
The team performed well, but was disqualified from earning an invitation to The International 2018 through the Dota Pro Circuit due to Valve’s roster regulations. The team instead earned a spot in the event through the qualifiers and Resolut1on once again helped his team make the top eight at the biggest Dota 2 event of the year.
VGJ.Storm stayed largely intact following TI8, but found a new sponsor in Forward Gaming. Despite previously finding success, the team struggled throughout the new year. After flopping in the first three majors of the season, Resolut1on stepped away from the team and joined J.Storm. That team failed to qualify for The International 2019.
Resolut1on remained with the team for a short time after, but then returned to the CIS region for the first time since 2016 by rejoining Virtus.pro. VP posted underwhelming results early on, but improved after several additional roster changes.
