Patrick 'ShadowSmile' Smiley founded Team Blaze while completing his degree at UT Arlington. Originally, Team Blaze was a collegiate League of Legends team that placed consistently as top 4 in the Southern region. When Heroes of the Dorm 2015 was announced, Patrick rallied Eugene 'Yuuj' and Richard 'Kladeous' to create a team to compete. After the profound success of making top 16 with little practice, Patrick decided to bring Team Blaze out of the collegiate scene and into professional eSports.
Why the name 'Team Blaze' ?
Team Blaze name was derived from the mascot of UT Arlington. The mascot was a Maverick, but no one wanted to be a horse. So we ended up taking the name of the horse and just putting 'Team' in front of it.
How did you come up with the logo?
Patrick Smiley created the logo with the classic Super Mario Brothers iconic fireball in mind.
