Will Counter Logic Gaming Red get back on track? Counter Logic Gaming Red
Adding two talents last year and then losing
Christine "potter" Chi
to RES has shaken up
Counter Logic Gaming Red
quite a bit.
The three new players are talented and strong, but had problems showing it in Katowice. Staring against some weaker opponents should give them the confidence their talent needs to step it up against the big girls.
Kristina "zon1Q" Stevanović
the team had been sticking together for a long time. A change was needed as they wanted to get to the top and
Meyssa "Missa" Bellouati
was brought in, as she has been a clutch player for the French WESG team
But the team has fallen even deeper into a hole after losing two best-of-threes online against Stevanović's new team, Squared Prospect. This hurts to see as that team didn't even play together for a week before winning against the veterans. Can the team find new strength or is there no hope for them anymore?
Planet Odd, or LGB, are back with a Nordic lineup. LGB Esports
The new but old organization LGB is back and this with the two French players out.
Matilde "Mattye" Wiik
and her two loyal players,
Hege "Hedje" Botnen
Lizette "L.K.S" Scheich
, have been searching for a soution in this team for a while now, experimenting with different players.
They are back to a Nordic mix with a majority of the players being Swedish.
Matilda "Rambolina" Gustavsson
performed at a promising level last Copenhagen Games and
Nicoline "Nicci" Svensson
is one of the biggest upcoming players in the scene. But overall the problem of LGB still seems to be to not having a leader who can get them the victories while having good individual players in their team.
This team only has three known names with
Martyna "iXoRia" Stróżyńska
, who played under Alsen last Copenhagen Games, and the duo
Kamila "firingirl" Kopij
Ewelina "Eva" Adamowicz
that performed under Paradoks in the offline qualifier for WESG.
While there isn't a lot of detail about this team, the Polish female scene has always had a huge talent pool which caused a lot of upsets against some strong teams. Sadly we haven't seen much of the Polish ladies since there has never been anyone to invest in the teams, and that's why only one Polish team has been sent to events.
The Polish players still are a team to watch out for since they could be one of the big surprises of the competition.
This year Michaela "mimi" Lintrup will play with a new team in Copenhagen. Spirifex Michaela "mimi" Lintrup
is back to perform on home turf when she's entering Copenhagen Games with a lineup full of experience and talent.
Kristina "K1KA" Đukić
Esmee "Psycho" Pauw
have been hard working players with a lot of talent, who talked around in the scene. While they haven't had the opportunity to really show it in a lot of officials yet, this is their time to shine and show what damage they can put up against some of the bigger names and set a statement.
Being represented by an organization like Tyloo is a huge step to show up internationally. Three of the players on
have been part of
that surprised at WESG World Finals by beating
Those Damn Canadians
and making it a three mapper against
in the grand final.
With two different players and
DongMei "LEO" Fang
left out this isn't looking promising though considering that now they have to face actual teams.
I personally think the wonder of the WESG World Finals will be hard to repeat and we might see an early exit from Tyloo, but who knows what preparation the hard-working players from China brought with them to Denmark.
