Hammers Esports signs Chavs after dropping LG Evil

In a move with clear long-term planning involved, Hammers Esports announced that just a day after sending their prior team to Luminosity, they would sign the upstart European squad formerly known as the Chavs. While the Chavs have won titles such as an Xtra Cup victory against Team Dignitas, opportunities in Europe are currently few and far between.

From the announcement, Hammers Esports management makes it clear that the long-term goal is to bring the team to North American soil (specifically Los Angeles) where they can compete against the likes of Team EnVyUs and Rogue. As of now, the team will remain in Europe for the next few months while the Hammers Esports organization prepares accommodations and paperwork. The organization has made it clear that "work" and "play" will be separate, and has indicated that practice and living will occur in two separate facilities rather than a singular team house.

While unimportant due to matches being played on North American servers, it is notable that now-LG Evil roster defeated the current Hammers Esports lineup under their old brands in an Enter The Arena tournament. With a move to America imminent, Hammers Esports will likely try and prove that that particular loss was a fluke while they duke it out with such stacked competition set to rumble in NA.

Not only will the entirety of the Chavs move on to join Hammers Esports, but they will additionally bring coach Kirby along with them to serve as both a strategic analyst and an authority figure within the team.

As of now, the new Hammers Esports roster is as follows:

  • Mads "Fischer" Jehg (DPS)
  • Piotr "Sev" Hutyra (Flex)
  • Erik "Snizzlenose" Hedåker (Flex)
  • Christopher "ChrisTFer" Graham (Tank)
  • Jonas "Shaz" Suovaara (Support)
  • Tamás "tomzeY" Bordás (Support)
  • Yann "Kirby" Luu (Coach)

Depends on skill level. I play cs.go recently started overwatch, its so easy true compared to cs. I have played a month and im close to master already. But when u see the prices for winning in overwatch, u really have to laugh.

Prize Distribution

1st. €350
2nd. €150

HAHAHA! Who will even compete in a tournament only winning 350 euros u have to split in 6 ppl :P

Well thats normal in EU, NA pricepools are way higher.
Also wouldnt call master as achievement :P

(ps. CS:GO Pricepools in weekly open tourneys are even lower than that.

Have you considered that since you put time into another game that transitioning to a different one is much easier? If OW was your first pc game you wouldn't be anywhere near as good as if you put a bunch of time into another fps.

Back on topic though, I really wanna see the EU scene start blowin up more. I've always loved watching international play, as well as the big global tournaments. Hopefully Hammers2 will succeed as much as their predecessor.

I would say EU scene just blows up and everyone goes NA.

Hammers will move to California also

It's not profitable to a organization within EU to go for the Top EU OW scene, its done because of the enjoyment of OW.
