Since its resurgence a few months ago, Root has been expanding faster than a Zerg’S creep post queen-buff. WE’ve picked up established players in the StarCraft community, like TT1 and Major, and fostered the growth of some New North American BLooD through the signing of Fitzy, PuCK, and MaSa. While WE Love acquiring New players, the constant Flow of talent Into Root’S roster is going to slow, but not before WE make ONE last addition to the family: Yoan “ToD” Merlo.
You may know ToD as, simply put, ONE of the greatest WarCraft III players of all time. If you doubt that statement, let me read off just a few of ToD’S accomplishments: 1st place World e-Sports Games, 1st place Blizzard Worldwide Invitational, Silver and bronze medals at World Cyber Games and recognition as WarCraft III’S player of the year in 2007. ToD even moved to China, a WarCraft III hub, in 2006 to hone his skills and compete in the world’S biggest tournaments.
Due to this continual success in WarCraft III, ToD turned to StarCraft II relatively slowly but has still managed to become ONE of Europe’S strongest Protoss. ToD has been living and training in Korea alongside the world’S top players since late-2011 and will be looking to post big results under Root’S banner in tournaments around the globe. expect to see ToD in North America soon as he recently qualified for a spot at IPL 5 where he will compete alongside fellow Root players Major and ViBE in the main tournament. Keep an eye out for him there as well as in team-league competition as he is sure to impress.
