Andrew "mOOnGLaDe" Pender is a Zerg player from Australia, currently playing for Team Nv.[1] He is also a former WCG representative for Australia in Warcraft III.

Biography[edit]

Playing out of his hometown Brisbane, Queensland, mOOnGLaDe played Night Elf in his Warcraft days and now plays Zerg in StarCraft II. 'Andy' is no stranger to the Zerg race, however, as he achieved a rank of B- on iCCup using Zerg in StarCraft: Brood War.[2]

He was also very accomplished in Warcraft III, touting WCG wins over Grubby,[3] WhO[4] and DeMusliM.[5]

mOOnGLaDe was invited to participate in the HDH Invitational, from which he was eliminated in the round of 16 by NonY.[6]

In Beta[edit]

With the launch of the StarCraft II beta, GLaDe stated his intention to prepare for competitive play upon the retail release of the game. In addition to maintaining a top 4 position in his Platinum League division, GLaDe has participated in a number of community tournaments such as DacTheHork's Triple Strike Team Cup and Smuft's Team Battle Tournament, and won the Australian SC2 Showcase. He has since further strengthened his claim as the top player from the Oceania region with a convincing 3-1 win in the first TransTasman SC2 Championship, over Pinder after coming from the lower brackets.

He has since further consolidated himself in the top tier of Australian players by winning the Mar Sara Trials and taking second place in the second TransTasman SC2 Championship, as well as being invited to play in several international events.
