A NEW BOTLANE FOR THE SUMMER SPLIT

While the Spring Split ended on a disappointing note, the Summer Split seems full of promises.

With two brand new players botlane, Tomáš ‘Nardeus’ Maršálek as AD carry and Felix ‘Noxiak’ Lewis as support, head of eSports Bora ‘Yellowstar’ Kim seems confident for the upcoming split :   « To form a team is not easy, it is even harder when you have to form it during the mid-season : the valued players who managed to show their skills during the first split are already under contract with other teams. You need to look for every opportunities. It is even harder to find as there are a lot of aspects that need to be taken into account for the team to work. »   Let’s remind that the Spring Split ended on a disappointement for our League of Legends team, with a defeat against Fnatic Academy during the playoffs, preventing the qualification for the Promotion tournament and the LCS. Disappointed by the performances provided by the team, the staff decided to split up with WooHyung ‘Pilot’ Na & Hampus ‘Sprattel’ Abrahmsson.   « After the defeat, the players didn’t not immediately went on holidays. We stayed at l'Appartement and kept on training. It was a brand new chapter for the team. We have made some tryouts for every roles with different players, in order to see who would form the Paris Saint-Germain eSports’ team.  »   This is how Tomáš ‘Nardeus’ Maršálek and Felix ‘Noxiak’ Lewis, respectively AD carry and Support, joined the PSG eSports team.   « We have made a lot of tryouts to be sure to find the players who would suit the best to the team’s playstyle. What really matters is not the player’s rankings, it is his mental, his ability to adapt and his capacity to represent the colors of Paris Saint-Germain. By contrast with the Spring Split, we had a gaming house with l'Appartement, in which we could welcome the players to train and make the tryouts. After many tryouts, Nardeus and Noxiak appeared to be the players who suited the best to the team composition. Their playstyle adapts the one of the team, and they developed a good synergy together, I am confident for the upcoming split. »   Let’s wish Noxiak and Nardeus good luck, as they join Kirei, Whiteknight and Blanc in the Paris Saint-Germain League of Legends team ! We will see them again in the Summoner’s Rift from June 18th.   « Thank you for cheering us, we will give our everything to qualify in LCS and show you some good games. Allez Paris ! »

Thanks also to PSG eSports and Neverback Gaming for this opportunity ! »   We wish Steve goodluck and will see them again with the Paris Saint-Germain's color at the end of the LVP Segunda División, on June 25th !

MUNICH : THE LAST REGIONAL

June 8th, Paris.

It’s time for a last shot for August ‘Agge’ Rosenmeier and Lucas ‘DaXe’ Cuillerier. Thanks to their performances in FUT Champions Season 3 both players managed to qualify for the Regional Qualifiers which is the last step before the London’s Grand Final.   The FIWC Regional Final will take place in Munich from June 9th to the 15th. The road has been full of pitfalls for our champions during the previous events : this year the level is really high thanks to EA Sports’ parts in the competitive scene, that’s why a lot of good players are attempting to become professionals. Pressure is at its best, the room to manoeuvre is smaller and smaller. This time there is no mistakes permitted in the tournament to stay afloat.   Agge says : « In Madrid, my last competition was a cold shower. I was very disappointed because I know that I could have done better. On the other side this little failure gave me a significant boost and motivate me to focus on my weaknesses. I am training a lot at the moment and I have the intention to be the best for Munich. »   This time the tournament will look a lot different, as the format will permit to the player to qualify directly from the group phases. The competition won’t be easier since only 1 of 5 players would be able to qualify for London. Therefore there will not be a “grand final”. Once again the two parisians are placed in hard groups against some known players that are often on the top of the board.   DaXe tells : « My group is really cruel because we all have the level to qualify, we went to several Regionals, ended up on nice scores on FUT Champions, but this time only one will be victorious. The pressure is big even if we don’t play on a great stage because we’re playing for a spot in London. Won’t be easy but I think I can go through this, I am confident. »   Save the dates, Lucas will play on June 9th and you’ll be able to see August’s performance on June 14th. Follow them in their ascent to the FIWC Grand Final. Allez Paris !
