With Gears of War eSports gaining more traction, more organizations are starting to pick up Gears teams. In recent happenings, NRG has now picked up their own Gears of War team. The team will compete in upcoming North American events, including the ESL Pro League.
The new Gears of War team has seen a number of different players come together for the first time, but it’s certain that all of the players on the new NRG squad have the potential to do well.
"Long-time teammates Sleepytime and Sicamore, who placed 4th together in both seasons of the ESL Pro-League, are joined by their season 1 teammate Twist3DShot, season 2 teammate Xcells, and; Franko, who placed 4th in the recent Gears eSports North American Open with GOONZ, to create a roster that could prove to have the experience, synergy, and balance of skill-sets to excel in Gears 4. With every member boasting top 4 finishes, the new NRG squad proved to be amongst the best in Gears UE, and are entering Gears 4 with a renewed sense of purpose following their acquisition."
