GankStars Acquire ENAS, Enter H1Z1
H1Z1 had become quite a phenomenon in both esports and casual gaming. With the announcement of The Elite Series, a $1 million global tournament, we thought this is a good time to dip our toes... nah, jump into the scene! You can wear a pink-eyed horse head in the game?! Count us in.
After discussions with several teams, we settled on Eastern North American Strafe as the best pick. 6thSense was on that roster, but post-acquisition he found out that he is unable to travel to Dreamhack Atlanta, so we found and added Criz. The team is committed, mature in attitude, and hungry to win. It is also very consistent: nearly always finishing in the top 5 in chicken dinner scrims, often in the top 3. These guys understand the value of building a brand and working incessantly to become #1.
We've been invited to compete in the qualifiers for Dreamhack Atlanta and hope to make it into the tournament to prove that GankStars H1Z1 team can hang with, if not beat, the best. The team will be in Atlanta July 21-23 to attend the qualifiers.
Says team lead Beast: "We've been together since May and are all very positive and open to criticism. We strive to be the best we can be and never count ourselves out of a fight. We have a lot of respect for every opponent out there and treat every fight as if we're fighting a high-caliber team."
Welcome to GankStars, guys! #GSWIN
