The ONE Esports Singapore Major’s Group Stage is now officially underway.
The biggest story unfolding so far has been the standout play of Quincy Crew stand-in and Singaporean native Wilson “poloson” Koh Chin Wei.
Poloson found his way into the Singapore Major when Quincy Crew’s position 4 support player, Arif “MSS” Anwar was unable to join his team after testing positive for COVID-19. Then, his first replacement, Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara, was unable to make it to Singapore due to travel issues.
With no one left to ask, Quincy Crew decided to take a risk by turning to a local Singaporean pro they’ve never played before. Poloson seized the opportunity to compete in his first-ever Major.
Here’s the quick rundown on Poloson’s career so far:
- Turned pro in 2012.
- First pro team was Singaporean team, First Departure, where he played Position 1/2.
- Since then he has played for nine different squads, including a short stint with T1 last year.
- Currently plays Position 4/5.
- His top three most-played heroes are: Tusk, Earthshaker, and Invoker.
- Has played 294 pro matches in his career, with a 51.02% win rate.
- He has a lifetime 2.93 KDA in pro play.
- The Singapore Major is his first Major appearance.
Despite his lack of experience against top-tier competition, Poloson has risen to the occasion, and was instrumental in QC’s victory over Neon Esports this morning.
Poloson continued to impress in Quincy Crew’s game against Team Liquid, and while the team walked away with a 1-1 draw, poloson played well in both games.
Quincy Crew is currently in second place of the group stage standings with a 4-2 record.
