It's not much of a secret as they've already competed in tournaments under the Yoodo x Alliance tag, but today the telco and esports organization (who had a different team last year) made it official. During a quick press conference in the afternoon, Yoodo Alliance mentioned that they were officially teaming up with 4Rivals for the upcoming PUBG Mobile Professional League Season.
Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals will consist of:
The players, who have been together since their Dingoz MPX days, have been playing pretty well over the past year, so it's no surprise they caught the attention of one of the scene's biggest organizations. All smiles were to be had during the official announcement today, with representatives of Yoodo, Alliance and 4Rivals looking forward to a bright future. Things can only get better from here, right?
We asked Loda, Alliance's CEO about his thoughts about replacing the previous roster with the new one and he responded along the lines of, "It was a tough decision but we felt like we made the right one."
“The team’s performance thus far has been incredibly exciting to watch, and we’re confident that the combined boost of support from Yoodo and Alliance will help the team flourish at greater heights,” Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo, mentioned. “We hope to have your support as Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals continue on their journey to dominate the esports arena.”
Mohd Hafizuddin bin Yusoff, CEO of 4Rivals also shared, “We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with such established organisations such as Alliance and Yoodo. We hope that with their support, 4Rivals can reach even greater heights and take the PUBG Mobile scene in Malaysia by storm.”
Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals will be competing in the next season of PMPL later this month where they will go against the best teams from Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on the competitive PUBG Mobile scene!
It was only last week that Yoodo announced they had parted ways with Gank, and now it looks like they've got a new team to take their place. In surprising news this morning, the telco announced its newly minted partnership with one of the biggest names in the esports scene - Alliance. For those unfamiliar, the Swedish-originated organization started back in 2013 with a Dota 2 team that won the International that very same year. Since then, they've expanded into many other games including a Singaporean-based Wild Rift squad, so it only seems natural they would want another team for one of the most popular games in the region - PUBG Mobile.
Introducing, Yoodo Alliance! Kimz, Lex, Dinx, Pami and Temah, aka GRiTG ARES, winners of the PUBG Mobile National Championship Malaysia 2021. The boys proved they have what it takes to hang with the best when they won the tournament and will make their debut on the big stage when PMPL MY/SG S4 kicks off on 24th August.
"It's important to pick a team where they have a core we can work with. They're willing to grow and have incredibly skilled cores. We love to work with teams that we can add value to and GRiTG ARES are that team," said Jonathan "Loda" Berg, CEO of Alliance, when asked about why the squad was chosen. Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo chimed in, saying that they had huge success with PMNC winners in the past (see ex-Yoodo Gank) and are looking to repeat it.
Look forward to catching the team in action later this month. Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on PUBG Mobile esports!
The first major Wild Rift tournament has finally come to an end. The final SEA Icon Series: Preseason tournament took place from Friday to Saturday for the Singapore region, and the newly announced Alliance squad were crowned the winners! The team looked extremely dominant throughout the three days, dropping only a single game to eventual runner ups, Impunity. Congratulations to CwJ, SSK, Kryonics, Raven and Rich on their top-notch performance - they walk away with USD $2,500, while Impunity win $1,250 for coming second, $750 to Team Sequence, and $500 to Big Dirty Golems.
In Singapore, teams prioritized Orianna, Camille, Corki, Alistar and Kai'Sa though surprisingly there was no Braum to be found. Riot's latest patch notes seem to reflect their thoughts on the current meta. Qualifiers for the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series: Summer Season kicks off in less than a week, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of new strategies will develop. Stay tuned to eGG Network for all the latest news and updates on Wild Rift esports!
Following the footsteps of fellow competitor, Team Secret, Alliance are the latest organization to plant their roots in the Southeast Asian region with the official announcement of their Wild Rift team. A fitting return for the organization, since its founder, Loda, started off playing Dota 2 in the Singaporean scene in the first place. After trying out a few players over the past couple months, it looks like they have settled on a starting line up after winning the Project ASCEND: MYSG tournament.
On paper, the Alliance Wild Rift team looks promising, with championship-winning players in other games, namely League of Legends (the one that matters the most). We also see CwJ (a former Mobile Legends: Bang Bang player for Divinity esports) donning the green and black jersey for this game. The team will be competing in the Singapore leg of the SEA Icon Series: Preseason next week, so keep your eyes peeled then.
