Łukasz "Tefel" Czarnecki, also known as "Kuba", is a retired Zerg player from Poland, who previously played for Team Dignitas.


Tefel has been a relatively active player since the early Beta. While placing well in a number of online cups he has still gone largely unnoticed, possibly because of his lack of LAN achievements. He can be characterized by strong timing strategies and a more aggressive mid-game style.

On September 9, 2010, Tefel joined Satiini in ieS Virtual Gaming's newly created StarCraft II division.[1][2] Tefel went on to place well in a number of different cups, amongst others winning Close Combat Cup #27.

Tefel joined BLAST on July 27, 2011 after the dissolution of ieS.[3]

Tefel qualified for the 2012 MLG Pro Circuit Spring Arena 2 through beating players like merz, Ret and Bly.

On November 19, 2012, Tefel joined Team Dignitas's StarCraft II division.[4]

In December 2012 Tefel attended the ESET UK Masters 2012 in the United Kingdom at the Insomnia47 Gaming Festival.
