After watching several League of Legends streams and videos featuring Vladimir from Elite500, I asked him for an interview. Here is how it went…

Discovering the endless depths of League of Legends content on YouTube, I came across a channel that provides tons of Vladimir content. At first, I was not too hooked as the titles and thumbnails looked more like clickbait than anything else, though, I gave it a shot.
A wise decision.

Watching countless Vladimir videos I started playing him myself, too, and I have to say he is incredibly fun. Not only does he provide absurd sustain in lane, but he is also one of the best scaling champs in the game, having almost no point with a harsh weakness to punish easily.
Without further ado, let’s introduce Elite500!


Elite500 (aka Calvin), probably would not have gotten into League of Legends if it were not for his friends.

"“I played a lot of Metin2 and Minecraft and one of my Minecraft friends and his friends’ group introduced me to League. Since they were all level 30 they were hella toxic to me for being so new – so I desired to improve”, says Elite and follows: “The name Elite500 came from some guy I saw in Halo CE online, who was named “Commando500”. I first just copied his name for a few years until I played the Halo campaign and thought the “Elites” looked really cool.”"

Ever since he made Challenger in every season, mainly playing Vladimir, making a name for himself in the EUW server.
