As the old saying goes, if you’re not first, you’re last. With that in mind, we wanted to be the first to share with you, our loyal and incredible fans, the full Team Impulse lineup. You’ve stayed with us through thick and thin, roster changes and name changes, and you deserve to know who you’ll be rooting for directly from us.
A lot of speculation has been brewing among the community as to who would complete Team Impulse by taking up residence in the top lane. Today, we are both excited and proud to announce that Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong will fill that void. We hope you’ll join us in giving him a warm welcome.
The newest member of our young team is none other than
Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong. Previously, he was the top laner for the World
Champion SK Telecom T1, and played along the likes of Faker, Piglet, and
bengi. The wealth of legitimacy and experience this brings to TiP can
not be understated. He’s versatile, knowledgeable, and ready to show NA
how to play top lane.
Rush received Rank 1 on the Korean ladder in 2014. That should be enough to bring on any player to any roster, right? Well, on top of that achievement, Rush also earned that rank by beating our Nagne, Deft, and even Faker. Watch for him to make big plays on Lee Sin and Kha’Zix, which works well with Team Impulse’s motto - play fierce, play reckless, play impulsive.
XiaoWeiXiao is famous for his performance in the 2014 Summer LCS Summer split as a dominant mid laner, but he has a rich history in the LPL with Royal Club Tian Ci. While there, he was instrumental in helping his team take a 6th place finish out of 26 teams. He then clawed his way out of Challenger with a new squad in the United States to secure a spot in the LCS, where he remains today with Team Impulse.
WizFujiiN is a classic name in League of Legends, with roots going back to Team Summon and Team Coast. His Lucian and Varus play was lauded as top-notch during his LCS run, and he kept his skills sharp by playing with GamestarGear and Team LoLPro. His skill and dedication has earned him the right to be the AD Carry for Team Impulse.
Adrian may not be as known now, but he was one of the first collegiate esports players to receive an athletic scholarship to play the game at Robert Morris University. You can watch all about that here. He’s one of the brightest talents in the NA scene, being picked up only one month after joining Robert Morris. He’s so good, his play couldn’t be contained on one account; he had seven accounts in Challenger in 2014.
Team Impulse eagerly awaits our first opportunity to show off our new roster in the LCS. We are very optimistic regarding the future and excited to work with the talented team at Azubu.
Through practice, patience and hard work we will align Team Impulse with other endemic brands (like Azubu) to create successful partnerships. We will always focus on what is best for the players, our fans and the brand. Stay tuned for our the future of TiP!
