Transfer of Paladins Team to Ninjas in Pyjamas, FNATIC
When we learned that we were not (yet) able to compete in the newly-announced Paladins Premier League (PPL), our #1 priority became finding the right home for our players.
As announced by Ninjas in Pyjamas and FNATIC earlier this week, NiP secured Bird, bonkar, and Laizy while FNATIC secured Thiel. We thank NiP and FNATIC for providing a great new home and opportunity for our players. To ex-GankStars: thanks for the wins you brought home and best of luck with your new teams! We know you will kick ass in PPL and beyond.
GankStars' New Team
Simultaneously, we're happy to invite Sorsa, WesTo, Skosas, and menschmeier360 to GankStars as we acquire their team WCKD ('wicked')! Navron, already a GankStar and ex-manager of our Paladins Console team, rounds up the roster. These guys are currently dominating Paladins Global Series (PGS) and have the best shot at qualifying for HiRez Expo (HRX), which is the equivalent of World Championship in Paladins. We're excited to work with our new team and will have more news on them later.
Will GankStars Ever Play in PPL?
We hope so! Though it cannot happen for split 1 of this season, we're in discussions with the league in regards to the future. It would be an honor to play alongside the 10 stellar teams already announced.
