Validus pick up LoL team!
We can officially reveal that the team formerly known as AAT will be representing Validus in online and offline tournaments!
The Romanian lineup recently came 2nd at LSE Lan Party v10 in Romania and plan on attending many more LAN events and pushing for that elusive top spot!
Daniel "Dekazzy" Bolocan - Diamond 2 - Midlaner
Filip "FhN" Horatiu - Master EUNE - Jungle
Laurentiu "Coatpustmain" Zidaru - Diamond 1 EUNE - Toplaner
Octav "ang" Cretu - Diamond 1 EUW - Support
Mihai "Derethic" Iacob - Master EUW - ADC
We are pretty much the keenest team in Romania due to the fact that almost every weekend we're bootcamping at my gaming office, and when we're not playing 5vs5's rankeds we are DuoQing.
smiffy - What're you goals for your team? Do you have short term and long term targets and what was it that Validus offers that attracted you them?
ang - After signing up FhN we knew that we shouldn`t waste any time so yesterday we made a list together with our objectives. In 2 months TOPS we have to be the #1/#2 Romanian team (the scene is pretty good btw), and also get to Diamond 1 / Master in 5vs5 Ranked Teams. After those 2 months we will set new objectives, and frankly I`m quite sure we will get better and better because we are working hard and we want this to work. Valdius is based on the ex-Element organisation which I enjoyed being in and so I decided to partner up with them so that we grow up together.
smiffy - They're some impressive targets, how do intend on reaching them? Can we expect to see you challenging at LANs anytime soon?
ang - Due to being able to bootcamp with no cost and having a free gaming house and due to being able to play everyday I`m quite sure every goal that we set will be reached. We will visit every LAN Romania has to offer. We managed to get 2nd place at the last romanian lan aswell.
smiffy - LoL is without a doubt the largest game in eSports right now. Why did you choose this particular MOBA over other titles such as DotA2 and HoN?
ang - To be honest, whenever I get bored of LoL i hop into a game off DoTA2 just because I enjoy both games and I find them pretty different. HoN is pretty much a dead game and to be honest if the game wouldn`t have been dead I would've chosen HoN over LoL and DoTA2 everyday due to many factors. But it got bad eventually once the OP heroes came up. I like DotA2 very much but unless u played DotA/HoN semi-serious/competitve I don`t think there's much you can do to get into the scene.
