JINGLE BRAWL BLAST
This week continued our team announcement frenzy as we wrap up an exciting 2023! We are pleased to welcome both Mist and Frosty to NRG Rocket League!
Joining forces alongside GarrettG, the combo of Mist and Frosty bring a balanced blend of veteran experience and young firepower to a brand new iteration of our legendary Rocket League team.
Formerly on FaZe Clan, Mist has proven himself to be a top contender in NA with multiple regional titles to his name over the 2022-23 season. Mist also claimed runner-up at last year’s Winter Split Major in San Diego.
Rounding out the team is Frosty, a 15-year-old rookie who has shown a ton of raw potential in the amateur ranks. With coach Fireburner helping to mold the new generation, we are confident that Frosty’s abilities will translate on the world scale.
This week, the NRGFAM got their first chance to catch the new squad in action at a special holiday showmatch against Spacestation Gaming in the Mission Control: Jingle Brawl Powered by Energizer. The holiday Jingle broadcast crew featured Jamesbot, Azfura and Sizz who broke down all the action live on NRG MIssion Control.
With a series that featured a bunch of close games, SSG was able to close it out in 4-1 fashion, but it was Mist who showcased a flurry of offensive prowess that will be sure to lead to a lot more wins in the year to come. Special thank you to our friends Spacestation, as well as our great partners at Energizer for helping put on this super fun event!
NRG CS ON THE RISE
This past weekend, NRG Counter Strike punched their ticket into the ESL Challenger Series and made it one step closer to Pro League!
With a couple decisive victories against amateur competition, the team of oSee, daps, Brehze, HexT and FaNg earned NRG the rights to a Challenger League invite which will take place beginning in 2024. This is the league that feeds directly into the ESL Pro League, which qualifies NRG into major tourneys around the globe. While we are early in our adventures into CS2, we couldn’t be more proud of our team for taking the next step in what is sure to be an exciting road ahead.
This event concludes our CS2 matchplay for 2023, but we’ll be back before you know it in the near year. As always, stay tuned to NRG Current for the latest match updates!
