How will they fare?

There’s always one team that everyone in the scene hypes up and always fails to deliver. For the longest time this was Team ROCCAT, who consistently failed to deliver even with their high quality line up. In the off-season ROCCAT lost all their players and coach, meaning a fresh team was drafted in. Looking through the roster the team is made of players who all have something to prove, having been the better players at failed teams, so ROCCAT will be hoping to pull off the true underdog story with this team.

SK-Gaming were an institution in the LCS until recently. The team was famously in the top two for many splits until its rapid and sad decline. One of its most consistent and talented players was Fredy122, and he’s now moved to ROCCAT. As an experienced face, Fredy will be looking to be the rock of the team and lead the younger and fresher players to victory.

A long time ago there was a gaming organization called Moscow 5, and it was great. However, the team was disbanded and became Gambit, who proved to be a lot less successful. Edward is a player who played for both teams in his long life as a player. One of the most veteran players in the LCS, Edward will lend ROCCAT a lot of experience and ability as they move into the coming split.

Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.

When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.

I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.

I’ll see you out there!

Have your say!
