Johan "N0tail" Sundstein is a professional Dota 2 player who is currently playing for OG (/dota2/OG).

Biography
Johan was one of the youngest competitive Heroes of Newerth players in the world, where he played the
solo mid role. After the switch to Dota 2, Johan took on the support role, becoming well known for his
performances as Chen (/dota2/Chen) and Wisp (/dota2/Wisp). It was during this transition he quickly
developed his micromanagement skills, leading to his renowned Meepo (/dota2/Meepo) play. Despite his
age, Johan was the in-game leader of the Fnatic.EU (/dota2/Fnatic.EU) Dota 2 team.[1]

Heroes of Newerth
Starting as a casual DotA and then Heroes of Newerth player Johan, at the age of 15, met Jascha “NoVa”
Markuse and Tal “Fly (/dota2/Fly)” Aizik in-game where they decided to start playing together. The group
became an unsponsored side project of Fnatic (/dota2/Fnatic) manager Danijel "StreeT" Remus. After
https://liquipedia.net/dota2/N0tail 2/8
1/12/2019 N0tail - Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

changes in the existing Fnatic HoN roster and the promising performances of Johan and his friends the
group merged with Fnatic players Henrik "FreshPro" Hansen and Kalle “Trixi (/dota2/Trixi)” Saarinen. The
new Fnatic squad almost immediately began to achieve wins in online tournaments, and soon after
obtained their rst LAN victory in DreamHack Winter 2011. Along with his team Johan was able to secure
1st place victories in four consecutive DreamHack events.[2]

Dota 2
As a result of the decreasing activity in the competitive HoN scene Johan transitioned from Heroes of
Newerth to Dota 2 with his team-mates Jascha “NoVa (/dota2/index.php?
title=NoVa&action=edit&redlink=1)” Markuse, Tal “Fly (/dota2/Fly)” Aizik and Adrian "Era (/dota2/Era)"
Kryeziu on March 30th 2012, remaining under Fnatic.EU (/dota2/Fnatic.EU) banner. Persevering through a
di cult start in the competitive Dota 2 scene Fnatic eventually won the Thor Open 2012
(/dota2/Thor_Open_2012) LAN event, and have since consistently placed top positions in many major
online and LAN tournaments. In April of 2013 Johan and his team were invited to compete at Valve's The
International 2013 (/dota2/The_International_2013) in Seattle. On the months leading up the event Fnatic
participated in a Bootcamp in Belgrade Serbia, and ultimately achieved a top 8 nish in the tournament.
On the 27th August 2014 BigDaddy bid farewell to Fnatic and had this to say:

“Today I'm leaving Fnatic, this has been my rst and only organization to play under, but all good things must
come to an end. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through the years, as long as you're
watching I will be playing :)”[3]

Trivia
Johan is very keen on dogs and other animals.[4]
Was previously known as N0tail before he changed his name to BigDaddy on June 21st, 2014.
However, after creating OG (/dota2/OG) in 2015 he dropped the BigDaddy name and returned to
using N0tail as his nickname.
Along with Fly (/dota2/Fly), he is the rst player to win 4 Valve sponsored events.
He is the rst player to win 4 Valve sponsored events and The International.
He is the rst Danish player to win the International.
