FINALLY! After a long mid-season break, the Overwatch League has returned! And Stage 3 started off just peachy. Our first match last week was against Babybay and the Atlanta Reign, meaning we’d be taking on a former teammate for the first time ever. The boys were a little rusty after their break, but it didn’t take long to get back into the swing of things. Babybay and his crew put up a solid fight against his former teammates. But in the end, we held on to our overall undefeated streak (11-0 and counting)!
That match was also the day we revealed our new look with the debut of our 3rd jersey! If they are still available you can pick up your own for a LIMITED TIME- once they’re gone, they’re gone! And finally on the Shock side, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out Aftershock 8, which documents our journey through stage 2 (our Golden Stage) though the incredible Stage Championship victory vs. Vancouver!
Benjyfishy and Savage have already qualified for the Fortnite World Cup and were hanging together ready to take on all comers in preparation. As an org, NRG has just one more player left to qualify for Fortnite Worlds… and Symfuhny is so close! Last week he and Zayt competed in the NA East server and Symf finished in 38th overall. He will take another crack at qualifying this weekend so stay tuned to NRG social for all the details and if you have not already, check out this Sneak feature about him joining the NRG fam!
The boys made a deep run at the ECS Season 7 Finals in London. We started strong with wins against NiPgaming and Furia for a spot in the semifinals against Vitality. It was an exciting 3 map series with clutch plays all around. But unfortunately, Vitality took the win in the end and sent us home with a top 4 finish. This week the boys are back at it starting Wednesday with the closed qualifier for the American Minor. Follow NRG Current for all the action!
