Los Angeles Valiant
Joins Pacific Division All-Star team
June 26, 2018
Custa will be the starting support for the Pacific Division during the All-Star Game later this summer, Blizzard has revealed.
Custa was one of the biggest additions to the Stage 4-winning roster of the Los Angeles Valiant. He joined the team at the start of Stage 3 and immediately became the shotcaller and one of the biggest reasons for the team's success in the final half of the season. He will take that leadership into the All-Star game where he, along with fellow starting support ryujehong, will hope to take down the Atlantic Division All-Stars.
Leads Valiant to Stage 4 Title
June 18, 2018
Custa was an integral part of the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior in the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
While Custa is often relegated to Mercy duty, his role on this team is anything be small. Ever since joining this team, Custa has been the leader on the comms and it was no different during their run in the Stage 4 Playoffs. Against both the Gladiators and the Excelsior, Custa managed to keep his team calm and collected as they waded through a pair of difficult series. His contributions were especially present in the Finals, as they managed to play their best Overwatch of the year in a surprising 3-1 win over the Excelsior to claim the title.
Gives London fits
June 7, 2018
Custa was on point during the Los Angeles Valiant's 2-1 win over the London Spitfire on Thursday.
While SPACE has been bringing the flashy plays ever since he joined the Valiant, Custa is no slouch. He can play just about any support hero, with his Ana even making an appearance in this series, which allows the Valiant to play a variety of team compositions. Such flexibility gives the Valiant and chance to adjust to any situation, which is exactly what they did in this series. After looking worse for wear in the first half, they completely flipped the script in the second half and ran away with the last two games to take the series.
Battle Mercy comes out to stop the Mayhem
May 24, 2018
Custa kept his teammates alive in a 3-1 win over the Florida Mayhem on Wednesday.
While the series may not have started out on the best of notes for Los Angeles, they stabilized after a Game 1 loss. A lot of that had to do with Custa getting his footing on Mercy and keeping his tanks topped off to gain a nice edge in teamfights. Even more impressive was his decision to Battle Mercy, picking up three final blows on the final map. With him lending a helping has from both a defensive and offensive standpoint, Florida didn't pose much of a challenge.
Inability to switch heroes leads to rough loss
April 27, 2018
Custa had a rough time during the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 loss to the Houston Outlaws on Wednesday.
Custa seemed unable to shine on Lucio in the second game of this series and it ended up being a death sentence for the Valiant. While he had the chance to switch off the hero to get things rolling, he refused to switch off and they simply faded into the background, unable to even pick up the first point on Blizzard World. Even when he was playing on Mercy, his teammates were consistently putting him in rough situations by dying early in fights or before fights even got underway. Without any sort of real momentum, they were easily handed a 3-1 loss in this series.
Continues to gel with new team
April 14, 2018
Custa garnered player of the game honors in the Los Angeles Valiant's 2-1 win over the Dallas Fuel on Friday.
Despite having only been with the team for a couple weeks, Custa continues to prove his worth with some blistering play from the support position. While he is usually stuck on Mercy duty, he makes the most of his time with some well-timed Valkyrie's to keep his team alive in key moments. It's this ultimate management that really seems to be keeping the Valiant above water here in Stage 3. No ultimate seems wasted and it is paying dividends. With such high communication on this team, it's no wonder that they are undefeated and rising the ranks in Stage 3.
Commanding presence with new team
April 4, 2018
Custa showed off his leadership skills in the Los Angeles Valiant's 4-0 sweep of the Seoul Dynasty on Wednesday.
Custa was brought to this team to be a leadership presence and it certainly showed in how the team played in his Valiant debut. After looking dazed and confused throughout most of Stage 2, the Valiant looked completely rejuvenated in this series. With Custa playing a ton of Mercy, he was able to get a good look at the competition and shotcall extremely well for this team. He even showed off a deepened hero pool with his use of Lucio on certain maps. As with any new addition to a team, once he has the time to gel with his new teammates, he should be even stronger. A 4-0 sweep of one of the best teams in the League is certainly not a bad way to start off.
Traded to the Valiant
April 2, 2018
Custa has been traded to the Los Angeles Valiant in exchange for Unkoe, the Dallas Fuel announced Monday.
With the Valiant struggling with internal issues surrounding a few of its players, namely Unkoe and Soon, it's not surprising that they have decided to pull the trigger on a trade. It's a bit more suprising, though, that they ended up trading him away for Custa. Whereas unKOE was the main support for Los Angeles, Custa has played in just 10 of the Fuel's 20 games this season. Still, he brings in a Lucio presence that could certainly help the team better adjust to the meta. We won't have to wait very long to see how his addition might boost this team as he will be eligible for the Valiant's first match of Stage 3 this Wednesday against the Seoul Dynasty.
Poor positioning leads to Dallas' downfall
March 5, 2018
Custa couldn't stand against the Los Angeles Valiant in the Dallas Fuel's 3-1 loss on Friday.
Custa never seemed to find the right place to stand during teamfights. Repeatedly, he'd be the first person down, which resulted in the Fuel missing out on critical damage. Custa needs to either learn how to stay alive by himself or get the rest of the team to react quickly when he's getting shot at. Custa cannot be the person to fall first or Dallas will surely always lose the fight.
