Cantuğ 'UNLOST' Özsoy’s love for games started when he first touched a keyboard at age 7. His first touch of the keys lit a spark under him, and soon he found himself going to internet cafes just to enjoy typing on keyboards. That spark for keyboards transitioned into a love for gaming, and soon afterward would grow into a competitive fire that UNLOST would unleash upon the world.
One of Turkey’s most successful and prominent CS:GO, Hearthstone, and Dota 2 pro players, UNLOST has also always had the urge to share his love of gaming with others, because of the welcome distraction and the new perspectives it offers to people. He wanted to play with friends and share his knowledge, so he’d invite his friends over to develop their skills, and this interest led him to start his Twitch streaming career in 2013.
Within a short amount of time, the world took notice, and Cantuğ quickly built up a family of followers. He set the Turkish Twitch records for Most Watched Stream with 140,000 live views, and Most New Subscribers with 8000 Twitch subscribers in a session.
UNLOST has contributed to the establishment of many different gaming communities in Turkey, and has organized more than 50 offline and over 200 online tournaments. Just as he did when he started out, he still continues to share all his knowledge with players and keeps a close, friendly relationship with his followers. For the past 5 years, Cantuğ has also branched out into actively producing YouTube content.
