FIWC GRAND FINAL : DREAM BIGGER

The season has been full of emotions for our Paris Saint-Germain eSports’ players who however managed to qualify for the FIWC Grand Final in London.

From August 16 to 18, they will face the best players in the world and will need to show their mental and technical strengths to be able to take a place on the podium.   « I am in the death group again. I know this makes things difficult, but if I want to be a champion, I can not choose the opponents. I'm totally focused on overcoming my rivals in London » states Rafifa13.   On his side, Aameghessib followed a special training in preparation for the Grand Finale :   « I have been spending time on analysing and observing every opponent participating in the Grand Final and taking notes of all their advantages and disadvantages to find the best tactics and strategies through utilising my opponents’ weaknesses against them, and to further develop my own skills in the game. »   Players are inspiring each others and often train together to improve their game.   « I think the two FIFA players I most admire are Bruce Grannec and my teammate August Rosenmeier. They are icons in terms of champions, behaviour and history in the FIFA history » Confides Rafael.   « Thank you all for your support this year. We will do our best to be champion in London. Allez Paris, Vamos Paris ! » he concludes.   We wish our two players to follow the path of their idols and to have the chance to lift the FIFA World Champion trophy on August 18th in London !

My favourite players would have to be Di Maria and Neymar, though I have always been inspired by Verratti and Thiago Motta since both players are Midfielders and that is the same position that I play as a professional football player. »   Welcome in the team Ahmed ‘Aameghessib’ Al-Meghessib, we wish you the best of luck for the FIWC !   « I would like to thank PSG eSport team for giving me the chance to compete with them and also I would like to thank Hamad Al-Meghaiseeb my cousin for helping me with my carrier.

SEE YOU ON THE RIFT WHITEKNIGHT

From a common agreement, Paris Saint-Germain eSports and Matti ‘Whiteknight’ Sormunen decided to transfer him into the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) team : Ninjas In Pyjamas.

  It’s been a complicated Summer Split for PSG eSports. As the team didn’t manage to transpose their scrim results into the real games, we needed to make some roster changes. In the middle of the Split Matti ‘Whiteknight’ Sormunen had to let the Top lane to Max ‘Satorius’ Günther.   « I am quite happy of the spring split, coming so close to LCS, and of my own performance. Summer split was a disaster though. It brought me a lot of knowledge about the game overall and found some of my weaknesses that I can work on. »   Bora says : « Matti has always been a good player considering that he has always been in the top Solo Queue rankings. He needed to obviously learn a lot to play in a team and to be a good teammate but improved at a good pace. He has been a solid player and I believe that he will be a great player in the future. »   At first Matti joined PSG eSports to play as the starter top laner of the Spring Split, with the last changes in the team his new substitute role didn’t suit him.   « I feel excited about joining NiP and I am looking forward to improving myself and hopefully showing up when it counts. I would like to thank all my fans for their support even when I am not on my best performance ! »   Yellowstar stated : « The transfer of Matti to Ninjas In Pyjamas is a good opportunity for him to get more experience in competitive, especially in the LCS. Not surprising to see a lot of transfers at this time considering that playoffs or promotion/relegation are approaching. Glad to see this happening and becoming more common. »   We really want to thank Whiteknight for doing such a great job on the top lane. See you soon on the Rift !
