Team Curse has been shuffled recently, Joe 'Voyboy' Esfahani joined them Nov 1st replacing Jon 'Westrice' Nguyen(and Trevor 'Salce' Salce). They have never lacked depth of talent at top lane, but as for bottom, the tandem of Elementz and David 'Cop' Roberson has been a mainstay for quite some time. Elementz joined the team nearly a year ago, Dec 19th 2011, a day before Cop. Elementz shares a similar history with Brandon 'Saintvicious' DiMarco and Voyboy as all were "benched" by Counter Logic Gaming and ended up finding a place with Curse.
With Elementz gone (for the time being), Curse has filled his spot with Keenan 'Rhux' Santos, a rather unheralded player. Last season he was at 2800 ELO and he is currently listed as 193rd on the solo queue ranking board. He won the Curse 1v1 tournament and was invited for a tryout with the team. He fared well in the last tournament Curse played, SoloMid Series - Week 4 and they ended up winning. Team Curse beat newly formed Team FeaR (previously Monomaniac eSports Ferus) and Rhux was praised for his strong play throughout the tournament by both shoutcasters and fans.
An AMA with Rhux can be found here.

Next up, Team Curse goes to IPL 5 with their new roster after inheriting the spot from the now disbanded Team SoloMid EVO. IPL runs from Nov 29th to Dec 2nd in Las Vegas!
I am from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I'm a lover of languages, video games, movies, music, computers, trivia and more!
I'm an avid fan of everything League of Legends related, I tend to watch the pro-scene more than play it though. I have been interested in sports for a long time (hockey, soccer, football, etc.) and that has blossomed into a passion for e-sports.
If you think I can help you with anything, don't hesitate to drop me a line!
