When Masterminds GC launched, we did so with an Overwatch team at the helm; a team that worked their way from the ground up, exceeding all expectations. Unfortunately, earlier this year we said goodbye to our team in their current form as the players went their separate ways within the scene and we were left with a decision to make on our future within Overwatch.
After many discussions within the organisation and with potential players and teams, we are proud to announce the signing of the Snakes roster – an extremely talented group of individuals who have shown they are a force to be reckoned with.
The team have qualified for the ESL AU&NZ Championship Season 1 finals already, giving them a place at ESL’s first Overwatch LAN to take place on the 27th and 28th of May in Sydney.
Alongside this, the team is currently competing in the Cybergamer OCE Circuit and look in good stead to complete in the LAN finals in June to take place at Cybergamer’s studio in Adelaide.
The roster is as follows: –
CantuS – Support
taki – Support
Degs – DPS
tjk – DPS
HooWoo – Flex
KS1 – Tank
Smeves – Coach
“As a team, we couldn’t be happier to work with an organisation like Masterminds,” said CantuS.
“A few of the guys have played for Masterminds before so we know we are in good hands heading into a busy time for Overwatch in our region.”
The Team will first compete as Masterminds next Tuesday where they come up against “Thinking” in the Cybergamer OCE Circuit at 9PM AEST. You can watch the match live here.
