Rasta attract a Master
Lower the supply depos and fill your bunkers, Wade "StrifeX" Todd, a Terran StarCraft 2 ex-Grand Masters player from American, has joined our ranks here at Rasta-Gaming with the intention of building a strong team to battle for some of the top spots in the SC2 scene. He has just returned the scene after taking a break to welcome a newly-born to his family and is keen to re-gain his spot in the GM ladder (currently in Masters while gets back into the swing of things).
StrifeX has prepared an introduction of himself for this occasion!
I am proud to be joining into such an amazing team, This is a great step for myself and a future with this team. I have been in talks several times with management, They showed alot of interested in me and my abilities during that time. Things didn't really complete due to my lack of activity online in the past (job travel and newborn). After coming back and started back training trying to push myself back to where I was and above, I was surprised there was still some interested in me. That showed me this is the best place for me and to build a team. I am honored to be offered this position and to be apart of the team. With StarCraft 2 being debatably the most competitve game currently out, this also brings debate of it requiring a high amount of skill also. With this means we will be building a team to be competitive with the top teams, Teams that offer gaming houses to their members and some with a solid salary. Building a team will be tough but it's a challenge im willing to take on, It will take some time due to this to build a good team and we will look at potential talent that down line with training can explode into the scene.
My name is Wade Todd, I am 26 and i have been competitively gaming since 16. I mostly played StarCraft: Brood War competitively for most of my years. I entered into my first big tournament in 2003 which was WCG Tournament. I ended up getting knocked out fairly early in that year, finishing above more than half the crowd in my region, Which winner in my region turned out being top 2 to go to Korea to represent USA, later on becoming first American to ever go to Korea to become a professional gamer in Brood War. Following year after alot of practice 2004 I ended up placing 1st place in the WCG qualifiers over more than 1,000+ people. I was qualified as 1st seed in final 16 in USA for WCG for tournament style play in California. I wasn't able to attend due to college at this time I just started and tournament was the exact same day at first day of class. I stop playing a good bit in 2005 I played in WCG offline early stages qualified to go to regional tournament vs top 8 or 16 in the region but was also not capable of going that year due to work/college. In 2008 I was in Team USA B National team to represent USA vs other countries in Brood War online. I was manager/player along with Kawaiirice who was over team USA B during this team. We were very strong placing top 5 in Nation Wars over 100 countries / teams. Currently I been playing StarCraft 2 as much as possible when im able, I have won 1 tournament for $50 and taking on 64 players..I also placed 5th , even with the lack of practice at the time, in the Newegg WANFEST tournament with over 1,000+ opponents. I was knocked out by the player who won the event.
I plan to practice as hard as possible with the amount of time i do have. I will be practicing anywhere from 4 - 8 hours most days. I also will be collecting up a team very soon to present to you guys, Thanks for this opportunity and chance. I will do my best to put out some great results over time.
I'm sure you will all join me in greeting StrifeX to our home!
