We're very pleased to announce today that our good friend TT1 is officially becoming a member of the ROOT Family today!
Payam "TT1" Toghyam has always been a member of our team at heart. Payam lived in the ROOT House while we were located in florida, alongside drewbie myself and fenix and our friendship extends for a long time now.
Payam, KiWiKaKi, Fayth and SLush are always bugging everyone else by talking in french at events as well, there is no better fit for our team than TT1.
here's a picture at IPL, we decided to have a ROOT picture with the atendees, after ROOT had disbanded the team always remained in our hearts, you will find SeleCT and TT1 jumped in the picture as "Honorary ROOT" instantly, no one objected, of course.
(TTOne on the far right)
TTOne represents one of the strongest protoss players in North America, currently qualified for the NASL Playoffs in season 3 in an incredibly hard group. Lately Payam lost some motivation, we have been discussing for a while him joining ROOT Gaming, i'd dare say for years. Since ROOT Gaming remade, Payam expressed his desire to join us and today, as he parts ways with mTw on good terms, Payam is finally free to fullfill his, and our desire.
When I asked him:
"Are you sure you want to join right away? you don't want to look arround? im sure you can get some good offers he replied: fuck other offers, I need to regain my passion, I need to play with my friends and improve."
Here's what TT1 said about him joining ROOT Gaming:
"Hello everyone o_o, for the most part player interviews are extremely boring so ill lay down some real talk instead of giving a generic statement on how happy i am to join root. Im a player who has alot of pride when it comes to gaming, i love seeing foreigners beat top korean players at big events but ill be honest, as much as it makes me happy i also cant help but to feel a bit envious whenever i see stuff like that happen. I dont play SC2 just to be another forgotten player once my career is over, i want to have my name remembered. My personal goal as a gamer has always been to gain the community's respect and most importantly that of my fellow comrades. The thing with root is that its more of a family as opposed to a team, ive known alot of the members for a long time and theyre very close friends of mine. Im positive that surrounding myself with alot of my brothers will help give me the extra boost that i need to achieve my goals.
We're currently in the process of building up our team but i can promise you that once we have all our wheels rolling we'll make a name for ourselves not only in the NA scene but in the international scene aswell. Please keep supporting ROOT and all of our players! I promise we won't let you down, luv u guys <3"
So again, here at ROOT we are extremely happy to have TT1, where he belongs. Welcome Payam!!!!!!!!!!!!!
