Ilya “Lil” Iljuk: “I almost always have a clear plan, which I strictly observe” [Dota 2]
Ilya “Lil” Iljuk called the qualities of this cybersport in an interview for the cybersport portal. The player Virtus.pro also told what devices and applications he uses, and how the usual day at home passes.
About devices and applications
Devays on my desktop: the keyboard SteelSeries Apex M800; Mouse SteelSeries Sensei RAW Rubberized plus some blue carpet Speed; Webcam Logitech HD C920; Headphones SteelSeries Siberia 800; Monitor BenQ with a diagonal of 24 inches and an old column with a subwoofer. I do not remember exact computer equipment, but I collected it to play Dota 2 without lags and normally stream. A lot of time is spent on social networks: VKontakte, Twitter, Instagram.
Therefore, it is important for me that there is always a telephone with the Internet at hand. My main browsers are Safari and Google Chrome. I actively use Skype, Twitch and Steam. Also I have many applications for photo and video processing: iMovie, VSCO, PicsArt. I listen to music in VKontakte, I call a taxi through Uber. All this is to some extent my mast-hev.
About the daily routine
I’m a rationalist to the core. Despite the fact that everything is very unpredictable in my work (there are no official games in one day, and starting at two in the afternoon and finishing at ten in the evening), I almost always have a clear plan, which I strictly observe. At the same time, I rarely write something down – everything is in my head.
My usual day at home: I wake up without an alarm clock → a small charge → a contrast shower → a champion’s breakfast → an individual training session → lunch of the champion → team training → a dinner of the champion → a warm shower → a dream. Sometimes it turns out to go out on the street to breathe air, work out at the sports ground, go to the cinema or rocking chair.
