NRG Esports impressed at IEM Shanghai, while FalleN revealed two names that were considered when MIBR was looking for a coach. Here's the Weekend Recap!
Other than facing off against the Chinese squad, NRG Esports took down 5POWER, HellRaisers, and Gambit Esports throughout the event - which isn't part of the Intel Grand Slam due to it taking place during the player break.
In a new interview, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo revealed who MIBR was considering bringing on as their coach before they ultimately decided on Janko "YNk" Paunović. According to the AWPer, both Wilton "zews" Prado and Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu were names being thrown around in the Brazilia team's camp.
According to London Spitfire's General Manager, Susie Kim, Seoul Dynasty is blocking her team from hosting a fan meet in Seoul - the capital of South Korea, where the entirety of the team hails from. When companies bought into the Overwatch League, they acquired territorial rights for other areas in their region, too. This means, for example, that the Houston Outlaws also own Austin and San Antonio - and they have to approve any fan meets or activities from other teams who want to host something in one of their areas.
It appears a major roster shuffle is heading to the world of PUBG after Kieron "Scoom" Prescott announced his impending departure for Team Liquid. The European squad finished second in both the first-person and third-person competitions at the PUBG Global Invitational in Berlin last month, but that was evidently not enough to keep the team together.
