With the upcoming release of Gears of War 4, NRG are pumped to be entering the competitive Gears scene, picking up one of the premier rosters in the space with the acquisition of Tragedy. With 20+ 1st place finishes spread across the team, they will be looking to make an big impression in the $1m Gears International Circuit, travelling the world to take on the best Gears players in the business.
"We're ecstatic to be welcomed into the NRG Family! It was more than getting picked up by an established "organization", it was the mutual vision and the desire to be part of a true gaming family that led us to NRG over the other organizations out there.
With the rise of Gears in the eSports scene theres isn't a better time to grow, learn, and be part of something bigger. The NRG team is packed with intelligent individuals and smart investors like Shaq, A-Rod and Jimmy Rollins, so to be able to access that level of support is incredibly helpful to our ambition of being the best Gears team out there.
Speaking to the team they also show an immense amount of love, passion, support, and wisdom that will carry us through to be successful as a team. We are excited to be under the wing of NRG and we will work extremely hard to bring many championships in these upcoming Gears 4 events. We'd Like to give a special thanks to the NRG team for giving us the opportunity to represent them , and hope to bring more success to our new home!"
