Double Trouble: Topson Signs with Tundra Esports for TI12
Relentless, grinding, and consistent from playing together for years — this is exactly how you can describe the amazing professional Dota 2 duo, Topson and Tundra Esports. With TI12 looming around the corner, it comes as no surprise that the two sides announced an agreement for the youth phenom to join the organization for the largest tournament of the year.
The 19-year-old Topher “Topson” Waltz stunned the entire Dota 2 universe when he began his elite pro campaign, leading to his quick ascension among the world’s best players. To that same note, Topson has been able to find great chemistry and synergy playing alongside his long-time teammate, Execration’s EE-Sama. The pair placed first in WESG 2017 and 2nd in The International 2018 together.
Joining the Tundra Esports roster, part of the Swedish Esports Association, puts the two Dota stars on a roster full of experienced players who are no strangers to international events. The organization has become notorious for successfully recruiting younger talents, and are looking to compete at the highest level with Topson aboard.
Head of the Esports Association, Johan “LandM” Alte, had this to say about the acquisition:
We are ecstatic to announce the addition of Topson to the Tundra Esports. We have been keeping a close eye on his development and growth from when he had almost no experience playing on the professional scene and his potential was heavily questioned. We are now looking forward to having him as a part of our team and believe he will be an integral piece of our puzzle for the upcoming TI.
In a statement, Topson expressed his excitement for competing alongside the organization this upcoming summer:
Joining Tundra Esports feels like the perfect fit. I am immensely honored to have the opportunity to compete with some of the best players in the world, and I am excited to take the stage as I look to prove all my doubters wrong.
Take a look at the Tundra Esports roster we will see competing at TI12 this year: EE-Sama, Hosiask, Muge, and Topson. It looks like the two will bring in a reloaded lineup full of young talents looking to compete at the highest level.
Welcome to Tundra Esports, Topson! All eyes turn to another dynamic duo at TI12.
