Ian "Chaser" Contorelli is an American player for Earthroot Gaming, who's most well known for his time with OpTic Gaming and Str8 Rippin.
Chaser's first major event was MLG Anaheim 2011, where he played alongside Hunter Jjx, Owilly and HK Mario as Victory Chasers. The team placed 22nd. Chasing Victory faced Brake's team in a match for top 16. Chaser impressed Brake during the match, which lead to Brake recruiting him for team Trauma at MLG Raleigh 2011. The team consisted of Chaser, Brake, Demon D and NocturnalKernal. They finished 23rd, and Chaser parted ways with the pro circuit veterans. Chaser spent the remainder of the season teaming with Shooter. At MLG Orlando 2011, they formed Victory Chasers with Hunter Jjx and Dreamcrusha, this time placing 25th. For the MLG Providence Championships 2011, Chaser and Shooter teamed with Cratos and Lifestyle as Crowd Pleasers, netting an 18th place finish. For the MLG Winter Championship 2012, Lifestyle was replaced by Ulrich. The new squad finished in the top 48.
