Lucky 17: Our Amazing Autumn Split 1
Both our NA and EU teams had a phenomenal first half of the Vainglory Autumn Season. Although the victories have been challenging and a few stumbles were made along the way, both teams placed 2nd in their region, coincidentally earning 17 points each.
We began the split by cheering on the return of R3cKeD and Oldskool. Also welcoming a long-time friend, and secret GankStars fan, Statusbaked to the org. Within this team lies experience drawn from every NA Championship to date. This experience is evident in the skill, strategy, and execution they demonstrated in their wins over teams like TSM, C9, and Velocity.
Across the Atlantic, we have witnessed TetnoJJ erupt out of his shell this split, literally leaving everyone in awe on multiple occasions during the Evil 8 games. See his game-winning triple kill against SK Gaming that’ll leave you speechless.
GankStars recently expanded into Critical Ops, a new but promising competitive first person shooter for mobile devices. The team performed marvelously during their NA Qualifiers this past weekend with a near-flawless victory of 13-1, proving they are worthy titleholders of the GankStars name. Captain Hugz, relatively unknown, left the commentators scrambling for words to describe... well, see what he was trying to describe for yourself here (the link should jump you to 1:48:11). This victory qualified our team for the upcoming World Cup later in the year.
To our fans and sponsors; thank you, thank you, and thank you again!
This may sound cheesy, but our sponsors, Mobcrush and GOCUBES's makers Nootrobox, are the best. We wouldn't be here without them in the most literal sense. Did you know GOCUBES are only $13.50 for 24 cubes with the GS discount? No shipping cost either. Grab some, they're super convenient.
The next split is the all-important one that determines the last 2 teams to qualify for Worlds. Vainglory World Championship is just around the corner, and before long it will be knocking at our door. We rise together to the challenge as one team to fuel each other to practice harder and think smarter. Now is the time to give it our all, yield no quarter, and prove to the world that we deserve another shot at the coveted World Champions title. Or two shots, if we're truly lucky, as both Cerberus and Sirius have an opportunity to qualify. Come to watch our games and cheers the guys on. Let's do this!
