Facing the Unknown
For Relentless Heroes Manager Sinwinn, his teamâ€™s contest is a unique match-up. Despite being an active team and participating in many Clan Wars, tournaments and team leagues, they have never faced Team aiR and know little about their make-up, players and styles. In a short interview on Wednesday night, Sinwinn said the lack of information didnâ€™t worry him as they enter their first ISTL match, despite not knowing what to expect from their opponent.
Among the top players expected to compete on Thursday night is Relentless Heroesâ€™ Moutas. Moutas has an impressive match history having competed in the IeSF World Sports Championships in Korea and the Electronic Sports World Cup in France. He took a game off of MarineKingPrime in France and made it to the quarterfinals at IeSF.
Watch for: NMxMaSa
One of the biggest names in the ISTL tournament comes from Team Nightmares. NMxMaSu is currently a Top 25 North American Grandmaster and may see action for Team Nightmares in their match with Multitude Gaming. Earlier this year, NMx and MaSa participated in the North American Star Team League qualifiers and were eliminated by Quantic Gaming.
