Stefano ‘Verbo’ Disalvo is a Canadian pro player competing for Immortals OW roster, taking on the role of Support and calling the shots. Being one of the youngest gamers of the team, Verbo’s vision and in-gaming skills have brought to where he is today, known for playing his best on Lucio.
Where it all began:
Disalvo had a dream to be a professional gamer all his life. He began practicing in League of Legends competing among his friends and moved on to try the new esports game, Overwatch.
His parents were not so pleased for his choice of career in gaming and on several occasions they would cut off the internet service and hide the modem. Hoping that one day Stefano would quit playing he proved everyone wrong and was determined to follow his gaming passion. Verbo would draw up strategies and game plans on paper and use wifi at local diners to study game replays.
