"Mash" (Real Name: Brandon Phan) is a Canadian League of Legends player, current ADC for Mammoth Esports. He was formerly known as DontMashMe.

His hometown is in Mississauga, Ontario in Canada

Biography

Mash is one of the very first players to hit 2000 ELO in the first season of LoL. His career began by winning the very first 1v1 SoloMid.Net Tournament. Being successful in solo queue and having won a notable tournament at the time, Mash formed a team with Lapaka called "Team Nice". As weeks passed the team ended up not working out and would disband.

Career History

After the disbandment of Team Nice, Mash was approached by LiQuiD112 and was asked to join Team XXX. Mash found success in various online tournaments with Team XXX, taking first in many weekly and monthly cups of NESL Go4LoL. Mash and team were then picked up by unRestricted after winning first place in the More Cowbell 1v1 tournament. UnRestricted Esports did well in various online tournaments and in August 25, 2011, the team was picked up by Curse Gaming.

Mash's first LAN event was MLG Raleigh in August where Curse Gaming took fourth place after a 0-3 finish in pool play, falling to Counter Logic Gaming Prime, Epik Gamer, and Team SoloMid. A month after the event, he decided to part ways with Curse Gaming instead of staying as a substitute player. This was when Curse decided to bring AD Carry Doublelift as his replacement in the main roster.[1]

In November 2011, Mash joined Too Tricky with Patoy, Nubbypoohbear, I Will Dominate, and RicePanda. Mash and Patoy were invited to join compLexity a few weeks later.[2] Team compLexity ended up falling apart two months later after top lane and jungler I Will Dominate moved to Team Dignitas.

Now teamless, Mash decided to form a new team called Choppa In Da Car (CIDC). Not long after their formation, CIDC took first place in the Go4LoL Cup #45. After several months of playing together, Mash's team underwent several roster changes with Jintae replacing chu8 and I Got a replacing Reidan. Despite being an underdog, CIDC knocked out Monomaniac and V8 in the IPL Killing Spree tournament.

Mash was one of the invitees to play for and represent the East Coast in the IPL All Star Event SXSW Showmatch in Austin, TX. With teammates Lapaka, TreeEskimo, TakashiX, and Dyrus, Mash swept the West Coast team 2-0 and took first place in the showmatch.

On April 6th, 2012, Mash played on Epik Gamer as a sub for IGN ProLeague Season 4 - Las Vegas. Mash took home a 7th-8th place finish at the event after falling to Curse Gaming and v8 Esports.

Choppa In Da Car was picked up by Monomaniac and renamed to Monomaniac Dominatus. After Patoy left Monomaniac for Team Dignitas, Mash joined Team SoloMid Evo to replace previous TSM Evo AD Carry Aphromoo.

On October 25th, 2012, Mash was officially announced as the AD carry for Team Dynamic, replacing zig.

A week before the Season 3 Spring Split Qualifier, Mash and team parted ways with Team Dynamic and formed Good Game University (GGU). With Good Game University, Mash was able to qualify for the Spring Split of the League Championship Series. In the spring split, GGU finished 11-17 and barely qualified for the playoffs. During the playoffs, Good Game University upset both Dignitas and Team Curse before falling to Team SoloMid and receiving second place and a spot in the summer split.

Before the summer split, the GGU changed their name to Team Coast. Coast met little success in the summer, finishing seventh with a 9-19 record. Come the end of the season, Mash officially retired from the team and competitive League of Legends. Coast's replacement AD carry would be WizFujiiN.

2015 Preseason

Coast gave up their Expansion Tournament qualification due to losing three members of the team that had played in the Promotion Tournament. However, they qualified via the Challenger ladder with the top seed, ahead of Enemy eSports. Coast easily went through the online stage of the tournament, defeating Call Gaming and LoLPro both 2-0. Matched against Curse Academy in the live tournament, they lost in the first round 3-1 but then beat Final 5 3-1 and Team Fusion 3-2 and qualified for the Spring 2015 LCS. Their starting roster going into the 2015 season included Cris, Impaler, Jesiz, Mash, and Sheep.

2015 Season

After a 1-1 record in the first week of play, Coast lost their remaining spring split games and ended the split with a 1-17 record, automatically relegated to the NACS. In the NACS, they won the round robin, beating Renegades in a tiebreaker match, and then placed second in the playoffs, qualifying them to the Promotion Tournament. With Team Imagine chosen by Team 8, Coast played Enemy and won 3-0, returning to the LCS for the 2016 Spring Season.

2016 Season

Mash joined Team Impulse in January 2016, as part of a completely rebuilt roster. Facing visa problems for the first few weeks of play, their roster was unstable until week 4 of the Spring Season. After some early success with their substitute rosters, especially with Seraph in top lane, TIP ended the season in 9th place, losing a 5-13 record tiebreaker to Renegades based on their head-to-head matchup.

In the Promotion Tournament, Team Impulse requalified for the Summer Season with a 3-1 win over the Challenger team Apex Gaming; however, on May 8th they were faced with a competitive ruling banning them from continued participation in the LCS due to not paying their players on time and also not having proper contracts in place with players. The team was also fined $20,000 by Riot.[3]

Along with Pirean and Gate, Mash joined the organization that purchased Team Impulse's NA LCS Summer Season seed, Phoenix1.[4]
