Back in Contenders Season Zero, the Bazooka Puppiez were one of many unsigned teams to find success in the tournament. The team, primarily made up of former members of Team LDLC at the time, would end up being one of many sponsor-less teams to qualify for Contenders Season One, joining the likes of 123, FNRGFE, and Kungarna. Their journey together has since come to an end, as the team announced through a Twitlonger that their match against Gigantti was their last.
Despite finishing in Europe's top four in Season Zero, the Bazooka Puppiez failed to find success in Season One. The team stated that they noticed they were having issues working together shortly before the season started ranging from issues such as having different visions of the game to not cooperating during team fights. While the team tried to alleviate the issue by bringing in coaches and sometimes new players, they just couldn't make it work.
Issues with teamwork did not necessarily mean the team's players had issues with each other. "In the end we still had fun even when things weren't going our way at all," the team said in its statement. "There is no bad blood between us and it was a blast to play together."
The decision to split was not a spontaneous one, but was instead decided several weeks back, according to the team's statement. For the time being, the team's litter will be trying out for Overwatch League teams in the hopes that they are picked up by the teams. However, there is still hope for those who fell in love with the Bazooka Puppiez name and logo. Their statement left open the possibility of rebuilding the team under the same name for Contenders Season Two.
The Bazooka Puppiez roster was:
- Kevin "Moffitt" Moffitt (DPS)
- Toni "Ube" Häkli (DPS)
- Metehan "Mete" Aksüt (Flex)
- Mihail Cristian "Meza" Păunecu (Tank)
- Ruben "Rubikon" Zurabyan (Support)
- Jacob "PsychoWaffle" Oyer (Support)
- Rikard "klanton" Lundberg (Substitute)
