April 9, the International eSports Tournament WGL Season 2 Golden Series Finals 2017 was held in Katowice, Poland. Top-4 Russian teams were among the relentless contenders to claim the champion title. Yaroslav Domashchenko, a hometown hero and freshman at the YUSU Institute of Engineering Systems and IT, lucked out to be on a Team Unique's roster.

"The League's rookies immediately fell on crashing every rival into pieces, as the season kicked off, not willing to shy away from any authority standing in their way. The Unique's major opponent is themselves. That is to say, lack of experience might be decisive like it often does," organizers commented on Yaroslav's team.

"I am so pleased to find myself at WGL Season 2 Golden Series Finals this year. This is a tremendous experience. The ESL Arena in Katowice saw the top teams across the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) – Tornado Energy, Natus Vincere, Not So Serious and our team Unique – furiously fighting for victory," stated Yaroslav. "There are 7 players on each team's roster. The tournament holds two semi-finals with BO13 mode (first team to sweep 7 victories) and one final game. True e-sports fans were likely to find that night to be tense, watching Season 2 Final battles broadcasted live."

Yaroslav is a wannabe programmer, and he believes diligence, commitment and patience are the traits to help succeed in his promising e-sports career, along with four seasons WGL gaming experience.

As a reminder, WGL Grand Finals will be held in Moscow late May, with Tornado Energy, Natus Vincere G2A, Not So Serious and Brain Storm to represent Russia at the upcoming event.
