nightstar451 - Founder and Owner
As the most senior member of Witch Doctor (in terms of logevity with the org, not age), I have been around since the beginning. I got into Video Games starting on my Wii at home and eventually found Vainglory after an Apple Keynote where it was displayed on stage. I joined and helped administer the Fold Podcast Guilds and about half a year after leaving FOLD, I found my way to Witch Doctor. Since the start of Witch Doctor, I have been responsible for the daily running of the organization. Within this role I dabble in all aspects of our operations, from our web presence (Discord, Twitter, Website, etc), to the competitive arm, and even reviewing prospective members. One of the reasons I have stuck with this organizatin is my love for the community that has been created out of it. Currently a College Student studying Collaborative Piano, Music Theory, and Business, my goal with Witch Doctor is to create an Organization that balances a strong Competitive side with a welcoming, supportive Community.
BrokenEyez - Co-Owner and Principal Advisor
Competitve doesn't begin to describe me; I strive to be the best at everything I do in life. From Family to Work and even Gaming. It's been over a year and a half since I took the leap and joined Witch Doctor Gaming. Now, I do my best to represent the org wherever I can, from training and nurturing young talent to streaming. Known for my Ardan play I am a aggro protector both in game and in life. My one goal to help Witch Doctor succeed and help mentor younger players and people along the way.
h3rsh3yb3ar - Co-Owner and Creative Director
Competitive in nature, not in skill, I love watching pro gaming and sports. Currently a Marketing Major in College, I hope to make it big in the Esports industry. I have commited myself to pushing Witch Doctor into the spotlight, whether that be with fancy graphics, social media presence, or rooting on our competitive teams, and making sure they have the tools for success. As the Dota 2 Lead, I focus on promoting the team, and keeping everyone in the loop with the most recent happenings.
BigDame21 - General Manager, Fighting Games
I started being a competitive player in 2010 when I graduated from community college. I first heard about fighting game tournaments in the Philadelphia area from a couple of friends of mine, and they suggested that I should participate since I was the local beating up all my friends in DOA and Street Fighter. Big E Gaming helped me get into the E-Sports scene and I have been supporting their locals, monthly and major tournaments for the past 9 years. When I received an email from Witch Doctor to have an interview to join the team, I was shocked at first because I didn’t believe anyone was watching my gameplay because I felt I wasn’t that high of a player at the time. When I agreed to join the team, I went straight to work to build the brand. After the team saw how much recognition they were receiving, Nightstar promoted me to the FGC Lead, and I made a promise to build a team to represent our organization to the fullest and to get our name out there for others to know who we are. Once I built my team, and the Management saw my leadership skills on full display, I was promoted again to the position of General Manager, Fighting Games. I have learned so much about E-Sports and running an organization ever since joining Witch Doctor, and I plan to continue to do the best that I can to represent the organization and help make it grow further in the future.
Coppo - Asstistant General Manager, Fighting Games
I have been playing video games as far back as the OG Nintendo days. I have been playing fighting games since street fighter and Mortal Kombat appeared on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Outside of fighting games I love some good southern BBQ. I am beer snob, a father & passionate Manchester United/Soccer fan overall. Come with me to a pub and watch a match, I promise you’ll love it! In 2007 I took a lengthy break from fighting games. In that time I have been playing FIFA Casually and Competitively. I discovered the FGC early last year and wanted to get more into tournament play. My home is the Philly FGC! I plan to bring my level of passion to this team so that we may all grow as an organization and players.
Jazzwillboa - Head of Memery
Playing video games has been my passion since as long as I could remember from playing duke nukem, quake, and of course the classic pinball on a Compaq computer when I was 4 years old to now playing various games. Jazzwillboa my IGN has been given a variety of different meanings but allow me to break down each segment of my ign down a little... Jazz as in a music genre as I love music and used to play the tuba. Also I used to sing in choir for like 7 years consistently. Will as in the willpower to outlive anyone who challenges me. Boa in the sense of constricting any competition... also cuz i like snakes.
Shin - Head of Editorial
I am a University Student, who, like most of my compatriots, grew up on gaming. I was introduced to them through my mother, who was already playing games like Mortal Kombat’s 1-3 at the time, and very quickly bought me Street Fighter 2, when I was old enough to hold the Sega controller. I didn’t become interested in competitive gaming until later, in comparison to a lot of people. At first, it was League of Legends but then I fell in love with fighting games. The adrenaline of a close match, and the community aspect of the fighting game world spoke to me. A world where anyone could go and play on the big stage without having to be sponsored or a specific rank in a game. I loved the feeling of writing and commentating more than anything. Analyzing gameplay, recognizing patterns and speaking about them on stream was as fun as playing myself and so I did that. I took my analytical mind and began to write think pieces on several different games, analyzing the metagame, mind games and the balance of games such as League of Legends, Counter Strike, Dota 2, Street Fighter, Tekken and more, and now I look forward to bringing that talent to Witch Doctor Gaming.
