One of the major titles out there - League of Legends has been eluding the QLASH universe for way too long. With the start of the new competitive season and the merge with Team Forge we are happy and proud to announce our Team Pro roster that will be competing on the Italian scene and hopefully winning the PG Nationals to go on and compete on the international one.
We have a young team, which for the most part has already played and achieved quite a lot of successes together. Without further ado, let’s take a look at each player that will be representing QLASH this year *pending PG Esports approval*.
Full Name: Mauno Tälli
Bio: Our captain who is in the competitive scene since 2013. He has represented some of the most important teams in Europe (such as Gamers 2, SK and Mouz). After an experience in CBLOL with Red Canids he came back to Europe and joined Team Forge in November 2016, competing in the CSQ and in all the current Italian competitions.
Full Name: Lorenzo Marzi
Bio: With 3 years of experience in the national scene, he achieved several results (3 ESL Championships, 1 PGN Split) with Next Gaming and Outplayed. In the last edition of the EU Masters his remarkable performances helped his team reach an historical Top 8 finish.
Name: Samuel Polakovič
Bio: Considered one of the best players of his region with only 2 years of competitive experience. During the last split in the German scene with SPG he showed great individual performances and convinced the staff with his solid displays.
Name: Luca Valla
Bio: Coming from Team Forge with 3 years of solid experience in the national scene. Without hesitation we can say he is one of the most talented Italian players and we have immense hopes for him showcasing his skills.
Name: Vittorio Massolo
Bio: One more player with 3 years of experience in Team Forge. His versatility is incredible as he played competitive in 3 different roles, starting as mid laner, going into jungler and, in the end, finding his place as support. This new role is for sure going to be a new challenge but ''Click'' is ready to bring his immense knowledge to the team.
Name: Gabriel Olivieri
Bio: Even though his youth doesn’t suggest so, he’s one of the most experienced players on the squad. He played in the national scene with 6 different teams in the last 4 years. After the PGN qualifier he came into the QLASH Academy and is now ready and can’t wait for the for the new challenge.
Name: Matteo Faoro
Bio: No doubt one of the best Italian Mid laners right now. He came into the the competitive scene later than the others, but he showed his amazing potential immediately and we’re sure he can grow to become even better than he is.
Name: Ettore Barcella
Bio: A young and promising Italian player he turned 18 the day of the roster lock. Having said that, he already has 2 splits of experience in the national league.
QLASH co-owner Eugene Katchalov was thrilled for what is to come and said: ‘I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it (laughs).. Jokes aside, with us entering the League of Legends scene it is yet another milestone for the organization and the team behind it. I see us growing at an astonishing rate and I’m sure the roster we have chosen together with the Team Forge management will make us proud.’
The Head Coach of the team Alessandro 'Sekuar' Sesani is also looking forward to achieving significant results: ‘New season, new adventure. We are mixing the Team Forge core - a group of guys already used to living and playing together, with two new entries that I'm sure will fit the team very well and spray some “fresh blood”. We aim high as always, the guys all have the potential they need to be on the top, now it's time to work hard and to use this potential in the best possible way’.
