“We’re all excited about this tournament”, said ‘HellsDevil’. “The team has been working extremely hard to be prepared for the competition: our goal is to win one game at a time. And then who knows what we can achieve…”
“This will be our first live tournament as Team QLASH”, ‘Flobby’ explained. “We know that we’re facing some of the best teams and players in the world, and we have the utmost respect for them. But respect only, no fear”.
