Namechange and outlook for 2020


Hey guys,

it's been a while I shared my thoughts a little more precisely, so I thought now that the year (and decade) is coming to an end it might be a good time to do so.

Firstly, I will not be doing a twitlonger about 2019. The people I played with all know how I feel about them and that I wish all of them the very best, obviously I could write a short novel mentioning each one of you, but I don't have to make myself look better than I really am. Love y'all <3

Secondly, you might be asking yourselves: Why are you changing your name?
I know, its always a bit of a risk to change your name, especially if you are a lesser known player like me. However - my (soon old) name "Unravel" had a lot of meaning to me back in 2016 when I created it, but it doesn't have that meaning to me anymore these days. I have changed a lot on a personal level over the course of the last three years and therefore decided that it would be a good time to move on.

Does Valkyrie have a meaning to me?
Of course it does. A valkyrie is a death angel that decides who lives or dies on a battlefield. Obviously I don't have that power (I wouldn't want it either), but its more of a symbolism to me.

I want to be the one making my decisions.
My life.
My game.
I wanna be in charge of it.

So as a fan of viking culture the name choice was quite obvious to me after a while.

Lastly, I'm happy to announce that I finally have decided on a team after almost a month of intense tryouts - the most I ever had. More information to come over the course of the next weeks, but all I can say is I'm really excited to fight for a title and hopefully attend EU Masters for the first time!

I want to thank everyone for the support you have shown me over the course of the last year and wish you all a great start into the new decade!
