PUBG: Lions @ OMEN Trophy at Paris Games week !!!
Our team has managed to qualify for the OMEN Trophy tournament at ESWC this month!
After attending the GLL Season 2 Finals in September, The Lions will finally travel to another LAN tournament. This time we will be competing in Paris, at the OMEN Trophy: PUBG Finals as part of the Paris Games Week. A total of 16 teams will duke it out for a $50.000 prize pool, with organizations such as Ninjas in Pyjamas and Vitality in the mix. Alternate aTTaX and PENTA Sports, our colleagues from ESL Meisterschaft, will also make an appearance and all in all, we have quite a competitive list of teams to go up against.
But our journey so far wasn’t without hardships. Since he would be unable to attend the finals in Paris with us due to scheduling issues, we had to play without Sonixx for the entire qualifier. Of course this dealt us a strong blow, not being able to execute the game plan that we have been slowly carving out with this new lineup. We were fortunate enough to secure the services of Jens “CupofMagic” Hostermann, who filled in wonderfully and has been a critical part in securing the slot at the offline portion of the event. With him, we still feel competitive enough to make a scene and secure a Top 8 finish at the event.
“The newly formed lineup around Derinor and piidde has brought along some drastic changes to our game style. With a lot of dedication to practice in recent weeks we made considerable progress as a team, getting to know each other even more and improving from day to day. This has helped us grow not only as a team, but also as individuals and this showed when we brought in CupOfMagic for the qualifier in the place of Sonixx and were still able to play to our potential. The fruits of this hard work are now coming to light with our recent qualification to OMEN Trophy: PUBG at ESWC in Paris. A tough qualifier, in which we were able to show a consistent improvement every time allows us now to fight for 50.000€ in Paris. We are all looking forward to the event starting later this week, and will continue practicing until then.”
OMEN Trophy: PUBG will be held as part of ESWC circuit at the Paris Games Week alongside other esports competitions. The winner of the event will be decided in a total of three match days with five matches each, starting from Oct. 28.
We’ll follow this up with a new Top-Feature, incl. stream links and detailed updates from each match day, so stay tuned!
