William "Heroiikz" Depietro began as a casual SARPBC player on PS3 when the game first came out. He previously went by the name Goalie Max. Although playing the game casually, he never quite thought of taking it to the next level and try competing against the best. About a year before Rocket League was released he had stopped playing SARPBC. Unaware that Rocket League was in ALPHA stage he began playing the day of the official release.
In an attempt to take Rocket League seriously he went on Twitch to find players who had previously been known on SARPBC. That's when he found Kronovi streaming on twitch playing during the pre-season. Watching for a few days and learning some advanced tips be began his ranked climb. After spending 800 hours playing the game and climbing to top 10 on the leaderboards using KB/M, he made the switch to controller. With his success reaching the top ranks of the game, he decided it was time for a name change and settled on 'Heroiikz.
For the most part Heroiikz played in vVv tournaments winning a few of those a month when they first started their Supersonic Series. His first big team that he joined was Brace For Impact. Allied with Zentek and CorruptedG he began doing ESL Weekly's. For the most part Brace For Impact always made top 8 in ESL with a 2nd place finish here and there.
The news of RLCS Rocket Leagues first world championship was great news for Brace for Impact. They had been climbing through Bubble Teams finally able to land that Number 10th spot on NA's Power Rankings. Teams were shuffling around at this point so that did have a deciding factor in the outcome. But as far as Bubble Teams went they were on top. This is when the team discovered some heart breaking news. The age requirement being 15 for RLCS. At the time Zentek was only 14. CorruptedG and Heroiikz tried out many different thirds but nothing seemed to click without their big support player Zentek. Thus Brace For Impact broke up on good terms. Heroiikz played with Sad Cats as a last minute scramble to find a roster alongside SirJumpOnStuff and Pizzle. Playing through Season 1 of RLCS they managed to place in the Top 32. Shortly after they had broken up.
RLCS Season 2 was the same situation, a last minute scramble to find a roster. This time paired with King Ranny and AuntJemima. Things were looking pretty good until an unfortunate run in with Genesis in the lower bracket spelled their demise.
RLCS Season 3 rolled around and once again Heroiikz decided to team with King Ranny but with the new third TestGravity. Things were looking really good for them. The week before Qualifiers began they won 2 straight tournaments. Heroiikz went on to win a third in a row the next day with a pickup team. They went though 1st week of qualifiers pretty convincingly. The 2nd week of qualifiers was looking alright with not the hardest bracket ahead of them. When it came down to playing Freestylers In Disguise they couldn't figure out how to get the upper-hand. Falling out of the tournament 1 match away from the Streamed Qualifier Match placing them in 13th-16th.
Since then Heroiikz has been grinding Competitive Matchmaking and playing in a few tournaments here and there. Making it onto the Top 10 Leaderboard once again in Standard for a few weeks. Eventually settling comfortably in the Top 50 without falling below. He hopes to find a good team so that he can once again try to play through qualifiers.
