Saurav has been writing about technology for the past 4 years, but has been a fan of all things computer related since he was 7 years old. He is a ghostwriter for multiple sites, and covers everything from PC hardware to chainsaws and mobile game development (yep, the guy has a lot of range).
Very few people know that behind the scenes, he strives to become a professional player in Dota 2- a game infamously known for its steep learning curve. Saurav’s fascination with computer games started back when he first took computer classes as a kid, playing Dora the Explorer on a Windows 95 machine.
Now, he spends 12 to 14 hours each day practicing and studying Dota 2. Saurav’s journey through Dota 2 started in college, sometime during 2013. One of his friends introduced him to this wonderful game during the 3rd semester, and he’s been hooked onto it ever since.
In 2016, he graduated with a bachelor’s in electronics engineering and got a campus offer from Tech Mahindra. But Saurav was determined to realize his dreams of becoming an esports professional, to one day play in front of a crowd of thousands.
He got into ghostwriting through iwriter to support his passion, and used the money to move to a different city with better internet. He even built his very own gaming PC so he could finally play at more than 30fps (college laptop + 400ping Wi-Fi = a really bad gaming experience).
Currently, his personal rig consists of an i5 6600k running at 4.6GHz all core OC, cooled by a DeepCool Captain 360mm AIO. This processor is paired with a Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury GPU, and 16GB of DDR4 @ 3000MHz.
Whenever Saurav isn’t playing Dota 2, he is busy watching hardware review channels and tech news on Youtube. Occasionally he will play a few single player titles to keep himself refreshed during the ranked ladder grind of Dota 2.
A highly motivated individual, Saurav always pushes himself to be the best he can be- both in- game, and in the real world.
