Team YP enters League of Legends
Team YP is very excited to announce its next adventure; we’ve entered the League of Legends scene!
The newest members of Team YP are an all-female League of Legends team whose members were previously sponsored or part of various notable organizations including: gBots Club, LDLC, Team Acer and Xenodragons. They’ve proved their ability to deliver consistent results during LoL EU West 5on5 Ladies <3 LoL cups, placing first on multiple occasions and only improving over time. The Team YP League of Legends roster consists of:
TOP: Joanna “Myshka” Pigla, from Poland
MID: Tanja “Escape” Reither, from Austria
ADC: Laura “Aryenzz” Muñoz, from Spain
SUPPORT: Marlies “Maestra” Brunnhofer, from Austria
JUNGLE: Patrycja “Reniferka” Krumin, from Poland
Myshka and Escape are seasoned League of Legends players. They began their League of Legends adventure in Season One and Season Two respectively. They are extremely motivated players that strive for perfection in their gameplay. Maintaining a high level of synergy with their teammates is also very important to them. Aryenzz is an accomplished professional player; with her former team she has achieved a 1st place finish at DreamHack Bucharest. Her passion for League of Legends is evident whenever she competes. Reniferka has been a vital member of several professional female teams over the past three years. She took a temporary leave from her studies to focus on gaming and streaming, this choice has certainly paid off as she continues to exceed expectations. Last but not least, Maestra is new to the professional eSports scene, however, she is already proving to be a fierce competitor as well as a key member as the team’s support. All our new recruits have a track record of excellence, winning ESL cups and attending the ESWC in Paris. Our new roster is a force to be reckoned with.
The uphill battle that women face in the industry is still a reality: being a woman in this cutthroat business means you need incredibly thick skin and strength of character on top of admirable skill and talent. Furthermore, professional female teams are still offered less time under the spotlight. Team YP believes in equal opportunity for all, which is why our organization is ecstatic to support the female LoL scene by forming its own roster, consisting of some top female talents active on the EU West & EU Nordic and East servers.
The ladies are excited for things to come. “We will start playing in Go4LoL cups soon, because we are choosing to not only play against other female teams,” said Patrycja “Reniferka” Krumin. They are already taking the scene by storm and hope to become the best female team in Europe. They are focused and show no sign of slowing down.
Welcome to Team YP!
