Coming from last Contenders:
Team Roster: DPS: FahL Obling Flex:Molf1g Main Tank: Nerfdd Supports : Mono Lind
Roster swaps since last Contenders: Mono in ( Previously on BP and Mosaic) Khave out ( now on 6nakes)
Team Description: Full danish team who brought in one of the best main support in Europe, they looked pretty solid on Pit specially on supports and tank side. FahL and Obling have alreasy proved to be a good dps duo.
Previous results with other Trials teams: Last season of contenders they beat That's a Disband 3-1, they lost 3-1 to 6nakes on Pit Championship EU S3 but they have the odd for a rematch
Team Roster: DPS: ksp Tseini Flex:Moursi MirroR Main Tanks: Tonic Hypnott Supports : awkward Insomniaq
Roster swaps since last Contenders: A complete rebuilt for BP: Meza went to Northern Lights, Nesh is playing with 6nakes now while the others players have took different path.
ksp in from Koord Narwhals, Tsein in from Young and Beautifull, Moursi in from Big Nice, Hypnott and Insomniaq in from No Clout, Tonic in form O&H and awkward( who played with 6naks on PIt) in from Little Ducklings. MirroR is a vietnamese previously on the AUS scene.
Team Description: ksp made an amazing performaces as sniper during Pit. Tseini and Tonic are two of the best not-OWL players in all the west. Tonic has already proven in last contenders how much he dominate as Wiston. Moursi played greatly in the Open Division and made some great performances even with a team built in few days. Their main problem will probably be in the first games since some of these players were LFT few days ago.
Previous results with other Trials teams: On last Season of Contenders they beat Mosaic 3-2 ( now 6nakes) but now both teams have an almost complete rebuild so it doesnt really matter.
Team Roster: DPS: Asking Nesh Flex:Hayko Main Tank: ChrisTFer Supports : Kodak khave
Roster swaps since last Contenders:All the danish players have taken a different path from this team. They brought in some players from last contenders: Hayko from CHF, khave from SNG and Nesh from BP. They also add Asking who is at his first big experience of Competitive OW.
Team Description: They are rocking on Pit Championship. Asking is the surprise of the tournament with his amazing hanzo. ChrisTFer and Hayko have both proven to be the best tank duo in Pit for now. Nesh is Nesh and hopefully he has finnaly found the path to succed. A lot of people from the scene consider them the favourite team along with One.Point.
Previous results with other Trials teams: they beat SNG 3-1 during Pit. They also beat 3-2 CIS HOPE ( who is not in Contenders Trials but played the Lan Playoffs last Contenders)
That's a Disband
Team Roster: DPS: Mauz Zeal Flex:BarbieQ9130 Main Tank: Kolsti Supports : Trispear Rubikon Izzy
Roster swaps since last Contenders: Insomniaq is now on BP, Casores is the coach of One.poinT, limmet is not on a Trials team and Track will play in NA with LNL.
Izzy come from Golden Sausage, Kolsti from Wind and Rain, Zeal from the T3 scene.
Team Description: Izzy Rubikon Trispear is a scary supports lineup. Kolsti is an improvement on their tank line. Some concers maybe come from the dps duo but Mauz has already proved his skill and Zeal is no joking.
Previous results with other Trials teams: they lost to SNG last Contenders.
Coming from Open Division:
Team Roster: DPS: Riverboat Invision Flex:Kotetsu Main Tank: Meza Supports : Zekor Veineless
Roster swaps since Open Division: Lateks Leodeddz Caspere and Exorath had some important offers and they decided to leave the team. Meza came from BP, Veinelss played last open with Birb Bois, Invision came from Jigsaw ( Open Division S1) and Koretsu come from the T3 scene.
Team Description: Main problem will be coordination. RIverboat is a beast, Invision a great second dps. The king of the candles( Meza) is one of the great European tanks.
Veineless and Zekor bring in skill and experiences. They won Open DIvision and they will prove why ( even with a roster change) they deserve Contenders.
Previous results with other Trials teams: they beat Samsung Morning Stars Blue 3 times in a row with the old lineup and they to go for the forth on their first match.
Samsung Morning Stars Blue
Team Roster: DPS: thebigone Najiny Flex:DragonEddy Main Tank: LUFT Supports : Linepro DNCE
Roster swaps since Open Division: Nothing.
Team Description: They finish Open Division at the second place ( first in the regular season) proving their ability. Except the supports the players are not really knowed outside Italy but they will bring some quality in the game. Linepro is one of the best Brigitte in the world right now, DNCE is DNCE, while LUFT and DragonEddy seemed solid all their game. Now is time for the dps to prove themselves at Europeans level.
Previous results with other Trials teams: they beat Samsung One.poinT 2 times in a row during Open Division playoffs. They also beat Augmente Autorithy ( now We Have Org) during regular season and playoffs. They lost all their match against Northern Lights
Team Roster: DPS: Hortic Frost Flex:Brussen Main Tank: mowzassa Supports : Scaler Phatt
Roster swaps since Open Division: Nothing.
Team Description: Even if they they ended 3rd in the Open Division they are praised as one of the 2 best teams in these Trials. Is not Difficult to see why: Frost is insane and Hortic have a lot of experience, mowzassa is one of the best main tank outside OWL and he improved a lot with Rein. Scaler has already proved himself during his time with Golden Sausage but now he has a bigger opportunity to bring his plays into the screen who matters. Phatt and brussen complete the team with some solid skill.
Previous results with other Trials teams: They lost twice to Samsung Morning Stars Blue in the OD playoffs, but they beat We Have Org in a convincing way.
We Have Org
Team Roster: DPS: Wayfast Dannedd MrDragonlol Flex:TwolzZ Main Tank: Midna Supports : KaasIsBaas Jofi Taang
Roster swaps since Open Division: They added Taang to their roster.
Team Description: They end 4th Open Division but they are probably the yongest team in the Trials. Explosive skill and talent for these guys. All the players appeared really strong during their matches. Dont sleep on this team
Previous results with other Trials teams: They lost twice to Samsung Morning Stars Blue and once to One.poinT during Open Division.
