"Matt" (Real Name: Matthew Elento) is an American League of Legends player, currently a Support for Team Liquid Academy. Also known as Matlife.


Initially a substitute for Gravity, Matt was known in the NA servers for his Thresh play, with his former name being Matlife. In the middle of 2015, he was picked up by the Team Liquid organization and played with them for a few years. The team was never able to achieve great results though. Eventually Matt left the team and joined the Golden Guardians in the franchised NA LCS, along with former TL teammate Lourlo. Despite aiming to finally capture an NA LCS title, the team wasn't able to make the playoffs in both Spring and Summer.

Career History

Matthew "Matt" Elento was a substitute for Gravity in the 2015 NA LCS Season but never started for them. In May 2015, he also joined Team Liquid Academy and played for them in multiple tournaments, including the NACS 2015 Summer Qualifier and the HTC Ascension tournament. He also substituted for Vortex in week 2 of the NACS Summer Season.

2016 Season

Team Liquid Academy made it through the NACS 2016 Spring Open Qualifier and Main Qualifier without dropping a single game, easily qualifying for the NACS Spring Season. Additionally, Team Liquid announced that all members of TL Academy would also be active substitutes on the main Team Liquid roster for the spring season of the LCS.

After one game, that meant for Matt that he would be a permanent member of the LCS roster, and he replaced Smoothie for the rest of the season as Piglet's support. Matt became known for his Bard, though his highest winrates were with Alistar and Janna. Team Liquid finished fourth in the regular season, going on to defeat NRG in the quarterfinals before losing a narrow five-game series to Counter Logic Gaming (the eventual champions) and then a 3-0 to Immortals to end in fourth overall, continuing the team's "fourth-place curse."
