Alliance storms the Fields of Justice
Stockholm, Sweden – December 10, 2013. - Alliance, one of the world’s fastest-growing professional eSports organizations, is excited to announce its new League of Legends division, which will compete in the European LCS after acquiring its spot from Evil Geniuses.
Snowballing their current success in both Dota 2 and StarCraft II, Alliance will be home to some of the most sought-after professional League of Legends players in Europe. The starting lineup includes Wickd, the former-EG top laner; Froggen, lauded as one of the best mid-laners in the world and Chronicle’s Player of the Year 2012; ex-Copenhagen Wolves jungler Shook; and the world-class bottom laners Tabzz and Kazmitch.
Wickd and Froggen both achieved 1st place at DreamHack Summer 2012, boast a top four finish at the Season 2 World Championship, and finished 4th in the EU LCS in 2013 with Evil Geniuses. Shook, while playing for Copenhagen Wolves, scored numerous first-place finishes, including the Dreamhack Summer 2013 Amateur tournament, with his aggressive and precise ganking style. Tabzz joins the roster after his impressive season with the Lemondogs: first place in the EU LCS Summer Season, second place during the EU LCS Season 3 Summer Playoffs, and a spot at the most watched eSports event ever, the Season 3 World Championship at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. In the first trans-atlantic tournament ever, Kazmitch looks to test his skills and earn a permanent place on the roster on biggest stage before the start of the new season.
“I am honored to join Alliance with Shook, Tabzz, and Wickd,” said Henrik “Froggen” Hansen, Mid Laner for Alliance’s League of Legends division. “Alliance is a great organization with a very successful history, especially in Dota 2. We will look to be a top team in to EU LCS, and ultimately our goal is to qualify for the Season 4 World Championships. The first mission, though, is to win against Dignitas in the Battle of the Atlantic this weekend. I am looking forward to playing with my new teammates as we try out Kazmitch and show the world what we can do.”
Alliance’s new squad will debut against Team Dignitas this upcoming weekend in the Battle of the Atlantic. Soon after, they will take part in the European LCS for the 2014 season.
