We’re happy to announce a new addition to our Noble family from the Brawlhalla scene – Noble Astronaut!
Astronaut was among the hundreds of players who participated in Stream.Me’s Legend Series, a group of brackets connected with the Brawlhalla Circuit. His results there include a fourth place finish in the singles bracket and a second place finish in doubles with his teammate Starlight, although his greater focus lies on the team-based gameplay.
It was his third place finish in the second season of Brawlleague Masters that prompted Starlight to take him on as his doubles partner, and ever since that decision, the two have either won or placed within Top 3 of every event they graced with their presence, such as the Brawlhalla Winter Championship, BLOC 2v2s and even CEO Dreamland where they won the whole thing.
Astronaut’s competitive career began last year and he shows no signs of stopping.
“To begin with, I never thought I would make it in the competitive Brawlhalla scene,” said Astronaut. “After my rapid improvement since the start of my Brawlhalla career, I noticed that I was capable of competing with the best players. That gave me motivation to get involved in the competitive scene, and stay a potential threat to my competition.”
And that he has! He joins over twenty-thousand players in signing up for all events from the Brawlhalla Circuit, a series where players will be invited to the World Championship LAN event should they place within Top 32. Competitors at the championship will compete against practically the entire globe, for a $100,000 prize pool. The event will take place this November at Atlanta, Georgia. As of now, Astronaut is ranked sixth for the USA singles but sits on the peak of the mountain alongside Starlight for first place in doubles!
As for what inspired his gamer tag?
“I used to play DOTA 2, a popular MOBA game that was released a few years ago,” he said. “At the time my gamertag was just “Astro”. My favorite competitive DOTA team was called “Na’Vi,” which stood for “Natus Vincere”. After that, I added “natus” to the end of my gamertag which made me Astronatus. Most people saw it as Astronaut so that is what I settled with.”
As Brawlhalla is currently one of the largest scenes in eSports with no signs of slowdown in its growth, we’re excited to see Astronaut go the distance with Noble’s players watching from the sidelines! To stay informed on his competitive endeavors, give him a follow at his Twitter!
