All-Stars Oldskool, Statusbaked, R3cKeD, and Chicken123 Join GankStars
From Vainglory’s infancy to its current status as an up and coming esports platform, GankStars has proudly been the home of many of Vainglory’s foremost and finest players. While some players have chosen to move on from our organization, in our eyes they’ll always be family. We proudly cheer their successes along with our own. Perhaps that’s why today is particularly sweet. It is with great pride that we announce that Oldskool and R3cKeD will be rejoining GankStars this fall and that they will be joined by famed junglers Statusbaked and Chicken123, together, the new GankStars Sirius.
Oldskool, Statusbaked, R3cKed, and Chicken123 are among the most experienced and accomplished players Vainglory has known, between them having competed in every North America Live Championship to date, the Vainglory World Invitational, the Vainglory International Premier League, and, most recently, the Vainglory Invitational Series.
In lane, of course, is Oldskool. Despite his age (15!), Oldskool is without question one of the best laners in the world, consistently producing top CS and KDA scores in all competitions and looking quite comfortable with his Vainglorious Gold tier. (It’s no wonder the kids call him ‘Goldskool.’)
In Jungle is Statusbaked, a fearsome competitor with a deep hero pool and impressive mechanics. Last fall, Statusbaked led Liberation X to the Autumn Live Finals Championship title.
In the sub position is Chicken123, a player that has grown tremendously over the past year as he played for multiple top-tier teams. Famed for his Taka, Chicken had been expanding his hero pool over the recent seasons which earned him trips to multiple seasonal Championships.
Finally, holding everything together in the roam position is R3cKeD, an impressive play maker that frequently salvages impossible situations. R3cKeD is supremely confident in his abilities and with good reason - he's one of the few Vainglorious Gold roams in the world.
As GankStars Sirius, Oldskool, Statusbaked, R3cKeD, and Chicken123 will be hunting for a spot in the World Championships this December. Come cheer them along with us!
