RAGE e-Sports is back with a new line-up starting this June, with it's new players very motivated to prove their worth on the Starcraft II tournament scene. Returning after a 2 month hiatus due to the departures of Kalin "Kalin" Romanov and Vesa "Welmu" Hovinen RAGE e-Sports has been short two players.
During the past few months we've been intensely looking for players who could fill the shoes of the departed players and in the end two very valuable players were signed.
Marc-Olivier "desRow" Proulx has been a competitive RTS player for 7 years now. He started in Starcraft: Brood War doing Big Game Hunters and moved on to Warcraft III when he was old enough to grasp the game and be good at it. He went semi-pro in Warcaft III but got bored of it due to the luck factor. He hopped on to DotA after Warcraft 3 and played for successful teams such as eMg and finished 2nd in a ESL Master cup series. He's been playing full time for the past 6 months and also been coaching part time for about a month now. desRow is rated top100 on US ladder and plans to attend as many LAN events as possible.
Thomas "CupCake" Glinski, formerly knows as ThomasG has been in Warcraft III's elite until he decided to switch over to Starcraft II last year. He's participated in numerous tournaments like Stars War Shanghai, WCG Los Angeles and ESWC Paris 2010 and he's looking to do the same in Starcraft II. He's rated top 50 on EU ladder.
We were carefully picking candidates for new RAGE.eSports SC2 roster during last two months to ensure that the team will be capable to achive good results at the highest level and bring us back to the positions we had in 2010. And today we're ready to announce line-up consisiting of four players who already proved themselves as real professionals ready to face the challenge.
RAGE e-Sports Co-Owner "Dmitriy Astremskiy"
Today is a great day for me. I've been looking for a solid and professional team for a while now and I'm extremely excited to be joining RAGE-esports. When I was looking for a team, the biggest factor for me was getting accomodations to be able to attend an MLG event. During the negotiations between me and RAGE-esports, it was made clear to me by the organisation that not only would I be sent to MLG Anaheim, but they also promised they'd assist in me attending all future MLG iterations, provided my results in the first one are sufficient. I want to thanks my fans for their undying support and I hope to show good game.
RAGE e-Sports player "Marc-Olivier Proulx"
Today is the start of a new era for me as I join RAGE e-Sports. They seem like a very serious team where I can develop as a player and prove myself at LAN events, the first being Dreamhack Summer ! The other players in the team seem great so I will have the best possible chance to get better and hopefully reach the heights of my Warcraft III career. Cheer for us!
