Bravado Team Update May 2018
NEWS | Abdullah 'anneKsiy' Adam | Bravado | May 2, 2018
We have made huge steps recently as an MGO and we have restructured all of the titles we compete in for 2018. As you probably know by now our Counter Strike: Global Offensive team is staying in the United States of America as part of Project Destiny with the help and support of our sponsors and partners. Our Call of Duty team have made a couple of line-up changes. We have brought along a Fifa team and have also announced our Counter Strike: Global Offensive Academy line-up for 2018 which is the Bravado Finesse squad.
It’s about time for some updates directly from the ladies and gentlemen that put in the hard work to be the best.
Call of Duty
The Call of Duty boys have managed to do quite well for themselves as of late, with multiple wins highlighted by Dillon “Lithium” Charalambous below. This includes a variety of online tournaments, cups and events particularly hosted by VS Gaming and the ACGL.
Our team has been doing well in recent events, we managed to win all 6 of our VS Gaming Premier Division League LEG 1 matches. This is definitely a confidence booster and a sign of encouragement as we see our hard work paying off. We have also won the last three ACGL online tournaments. You can check more of our achievements by heading over here. – Dillon ‘Lithium’ Charalambous
So far there has not been any recent event announcements, however, we are waiting for Mettlestate to open registrations for their online league which should be announced very soon. The guys are also looking forward to any Call of Duty events that may be announced for the upcoming Rush Expo, rAge-Expo and the EGE-Expo.
Bravado Finesse: Starting with the ladies, they have done extremely well in Mettlestate thus far, being on top of the standings in the Valkyrie Challenge and being undefeated so far. You can read more about their results and achievements via the Mettlestate website by heading over here. VS Gaming has been a bit different with 3 wins out of 6 games played. The girls are adapting to a lot of changes and will definitely be picking up a lot more wins very soon.
Incase you haven’t heard the announcement of our recently adopted Bravado Gaming Finesse squad, make sure you check it out here.
Bravado Gaming USA: Now for the boys overseas. I got to speak a bit with the infamous Dimitri “Detrony” Hadjipaschali and this is what he told me:
At the moment we are on ESEA Main. I think we accomplished our first big goal of being here that we wanted to accomplish within the first 3 months, we want to reach MDL (Mountain Dew League) and have managed to top the Main group. This means that we should advance through to MDL and are waiting for the announcement as to whether we will be moved up or not.
With regards to qualifiers, we haven’t done too well. The problem is there is very little room for error. If you lose one you’re out. We play around 4 to 5 games in general that are best of 1’s to reach the closed qualifiers. A lot of the time we lose the last game before reaching the closed qualifiers. We are going to keep grinding though.
Our goal is to reach an event. We’ve been focused on these new roles and have been playing a lot of scrims. We literally play up to 6 or 7 scrims per day. Alongside that, we have started online Skype sessions with sports psychologists in South Africa to help us with our out of game psychology(both in regards to ourselves individually and as a team), work ethic, mindset and lifestyle. For now we are pushing to make it through a qualifier and all we need to do is continue working hard and practicing hard. Dimitri ‘Detrony’ Hadjipaschali
Back to the City Tournament: The E-Diski Challenge Event was intended to target E-Sports teams. It was held at the Back to the City Festival in Newtown by Kosta Games. We wanted to use that as practice to prepare for VS Gaming. Unfortunately it didn’t go as planned. Zaahid did however manage to get to the quarter finals but I myself (Wasim) wasn’t satisfied with my performance. We still have quite a bit to work on but rest assured we will be ready for the next one!
The next big tournament is the VS Gaming festival this coming weekend. There are massive stakes on the line, with a 1,5 million rand prize pool, including two spots at the next EA Regionals. The event will see over 1000 participants battle it out for ultimate supremacy. We’ve been working on our game and trying to make the necessary adjustments and changes to make sure we pitch up at VS with our full potential. In-case you haven’t heard, we’ve also just brought on another player into our FIFA family by the name of Masoom Fakie. Read the full article here. – Wasim ‘Wass’ Rajah
The team has been doing fairly well, winning two Fifa 18 tournaments and having numerous top 4,8 and 16 placings. “This doesn’t mean we are satisfied with our performance as we know we cannot afford to settle for mediocrity. Hopefully we can fill the cabinet with some more titles soon!” – Wasim commented.
