He was on a mission since March of this year, when he took over the title of most-played heroes from EG’s Fear.

The European Qualifier has three spots and will send three teams to the Chongqing Major.
Team Liquid’s seeding match against Alliance
The match between Team Secret and Alliance was only for seeding. Both the teams had already qualified for the Chongqing Major. The outcome of this match would not affect their position in the Major.
In their Loser’s Final match against Alliance, KuroKy decided to go for the record of all heroes. Over the years, he has played all the heroes in the Dota hero pool with the exception of Meepo and Templar Assasin. In the first game, KuroKy picked Meepo against Alliance. While he was quite good on the Meepo, it was Matumbaman on his Dazzle who really stole the show for Team Liquid. Overall, it was a team effort which saw Team Liquid win the first game against Alliance.
The second game saw Miracle create history by picking Templar Assasin. With this pick, KuroKy became the first player to play all Dota 2 heroes competitively. Unfortunately for Team Liquid, they did not win this game. However, they managed to win the third game and the series 2-1. KuroKy picked up the Bounty Hunter for Game 3.
