This weekend is going to be big for Masterminds, as our new team will be competing in the 2017 ESL AU&NZ Season 1 Championship on May 27th!
Though we had started the year saying goodbye to some of our players, we soon after signed team Snakes. Not long after our new powerhouse had been formed, they qualified for the upcoming finals, with all players demonstrating that they are a force to be reckoned with. Now, only days away, the Masterminds are ready to claim top prize, and bring home the championship.
Since our initial announcement there have been some minor alterations to our roster, however the lineup is still strong. The current roster is as follows:
Project (temporary filling in for CantuS) – Support
taki – Support
Soundwave – DPS
Nectar – DPS
HooWoo – Flex
KS1 – Tank
Smeves – Coach
“The boys have been working hard and we are happy with our efforts. We have had some rosters changes for the event but we feel good in our lineups abilities to bring home the cup.” – KS1, Tank for Masterminds.
Having spent a fair amount of time in preparation for the event, we are ready and excited to see the team play. This year’s prize pool for Overwatch amounts to a total of $10,000 with top prize being $5,000.
If like us you want to see the Masterminds in action, along with some of the best teams in the region, you can grab your tickets here. The event is being held live at the ESL Sydney Studios with games starting at 12.00pm AEDT.
