They were semifinalists for champions at Rejkavik in 2021 and 2022. In 2021, they also finished in the top four which is a great achievement.

2) OpTic Gaming

OpTic Gaming has a great achievement list when competing in international events. Although I would like to put them in that number one spot, their loss to Gambit at the Master's Berlin lost them that spot. Their successes are still great and with a team as strong as this, there's so much potential.
