Meet the WoW Team

Meet the WoW Team

As part of Golden Guardians first expansion, we are taking a dive into the competitive WoW Arena with the founders of The Move:

  • Carlos “Absterge” Correa - Shaman - Armory

  • Jason “Pikaboo” Smith - Rogue - Armory

  • Conner “Wizk” Torrence - Priest - Armory

  • Vincent “Jellybeans” Tran - Hunter - Armory

Going formally under the team name “The Gosu Crew”, these four were the founding fathers of The Move, a guild and community in WoW. The team was formed in 2018 of “the players who had no one else” according to an inven global interview. Since then they have become a successful group, placing 2nd together at the Arena World Championship 2018. Since then they worked to play at Blizzcon in 2019, but fell just short. However, they are frequently ranked #1 on the leaderboards, and on 12/18/19, Absterge is currently #1 in 3v3 arena with an over 3k rating. We are super excited to have them representing the Golden Guardians and to have their vibrant community join ours. If you want to learn more about each member, you can see their bios below:
