Here’s what Iver ‘Trob’ Straume had to say:
"I'm really happy with our lineup. We have been together for almost 3 months now without any roster change. We practice a lot every single day, with scrims, vod reviews, and strategy discussions. And we all have very high ambitions. Most of us have been on well performing teams before, and we built synergy pretty quickly from the start.
We've had decent placements in weekly go4 tournaments, top 4 just about every week, and it only gets better! When NerdRage contacted us they were super interested in our team. Our goals are similar and we've gotten a really good impression of them. We are very excited to work with them going forwards."
With an expected growth in the eSports scene for Overwatch within the coming months, nerdRage have taken action and signed one of the most talented European lineups. Showing successes across the board in multiple events, the lineup shows a huge amount of potential to be a major competitor.
This is what one of nerdRage’s owners Rupert ‘RUDIAK’ Cary had to say about the signing of the lineup:
"Over the last few months we have been closely watching the Overwatch scene to find a suitable team with a huge amount of untapped skill, capable of becoming one of the best teams out there. It is very exciting to finally present this news and start working with the team to see what we are able to achieve together.
The dedication of the team is phenomenal and giving them a home where they can develop is crucial in this stage of their professional careers. We are confident in the future of Overwatch as an esport in Europe and additionally we will be using the team at the forefront of a number of projects we will be involved with over 2017."
