Odoamne Domestic Career
Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu began his LoL career on Absolute Legends. However, it wasn’t until Cloud9 Eclipse that he had his first notable showings. Together with his teammates, Odoamne took part in the 2014 EU CS Spring Split. Eclipse went all the way to the Promotion Tournament where they suffered a devastating loss at the hand of SUPA HOT CREW.
Afterward, Odoamne left the organization to join H2K Gaming. His team put on a clinic in the 2014 EU CS Summer Split. But once they reached the Promotion Tournament, history repeated itself, and H2K fell short in their series against Copenhagen Wolves. Fortunately, the 2015 EU LCS Expansion Tournament was right around the corner. H2K took part in the event, dismantling Reason Gaming and Giants Gaming to qualify for the EU LCS.
They had a rough start in the 2015 Spring Split but gradually gained momentum to finish the regular season in third place. In the playoffs, they took down Copenhagen Wolves before losing 2-3 to Fnatic. Still, they managed to squeeze out a win in the third place match against SK Gaming.
H2K’s regular season went the same way in summer. But while their playoffs run started with a promising win against Giants Gaming, they crumbled against Origen in the Semifinals. In the third place match, H2K crushed Unicorns of Love to claim another bronze medal. And since they’d accumulated enough Championship Points over both splits, H2K qualified for Worlds.
They entered the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split with a brand new roster. At the time, their mid laner—Ryu—had to redo his visa, and H2K were forced to field a substitute, Still, they proved their worth as a top-tier lineup, and their 14-4 run earned them a bye to the Semifinals. But H2K’s luck ran out when they clashed with Origen. A 2-3 loss knocked them down to the third place match where H2K fell in a close series against Fnatic.
In the 2016 Summer Split, H2K were plagued by internal issues. This reflected poorly on their record, and they finished the season in fourth place. Even so, they managed to recollect themselves for the playoffs. Their 3-0 victory over Fnatic showed a lot of promise, but a 2-3 loss to Splyce knocked them down to another third place match. There, H2K defeated Unicorns of Love with a 3-1 score. With this win, they managed to get enough Championship Points to qualify for Worlds.
During this time, Odoamne made a name for himself as a rock-solid top laner. No matter the matchup, he always managed to secure CS leads and score kills against his opponents. And the fact that he was willing to play tanks turned him into a very valuable asset for H2K.
The 2017 EU Spring Split had H2K rise to the top of the EU LCS ladder. They finished their group in second place, a single win behind UOL, and readied themselves for the playoffs. Unfortunately, their run ended with a staggering 0-3 Quarterfinals loss to Fnatic.
H2K mounted their comeback in summer. With a 9-4 record, they ascended to the first-place finish in the group stage and secured a bye to the Semifinals. But once again, the playoffs weren’t kind to them. H2K’s first series ended with a devastating loss to G2 Esports, and the 2-3 defeat in the third place match against Fnatic sealed the deal.
They took another shot in the Gauntlet. At first, it seemed like they were poised to go to Worlds, and H2K breezed to the finals with back-to-back victories against Splyce and UOL. However, a crushing defeat against Fnatic put an end to their dream of qualifying for the 2017 World Championship.
In the off-season, Odoamne parted ways with H2K and joined Splyce.
Odoamne International Tournaments
On H2K, Odoamne went to his first international tournament, the 2015 World Championship. His team was seeded into the same group with SKT T1 and EDG, and ultimately, both of these lineups proved a cut above them. With a 2-4 record in the group stage, H2K were eliminated from the tournament.
H2K also took part in IEM Season 10 Cologne. They defeated Cloud9 in the Quarterfinals, but the subsequent loss to ESC Ever knocked them out of the competition.
Then, H2K attended the 2016 World Championship. In the group stage, they persevered against EDG and AHQ to secure a #1 seed. This caused them to meet Albus Nox Luna in the Quarterfinals, and H2K took down the wildcard team with a 3-0 score. Their run came to an end with a Semifinals loss to Samsung Galaxy.
Odoamne also went to the IEM Season 11 World Championship. H2K kicked off the tournament with a win against Hong Kong Esports, but the following 1-2 loss to ROX Tigers knocked them down to the loser’s bracket. There, they bounced back with another victory against Hong Kong Esports. In the playoffs, H2K clashed with Flash Wolves, losing to them with a 1-2 score.
