Copenhagen Flames sign Assassins
Copenhagen Flames have announced that they have acquired Assassins' lineup.
The squad's last outing was back in April when they made it to the grand final of Copenhagen Games Female, ultimately losing 2-0 to CLG Red. Since then, the European team have parted ways with Klaudia "klaudia" Beczkiewicz and added Vicky "vic" Dose to their lineup.
In addition to its $100,000 prize pool, the eight-team female event will hand out a spot at DreamHack Open Rotterdam, where the champions of DreamHack Showdown will compete against seven male teams.
"We saw a huge opportunity here with one of the world's best female teams, which competes in large international tournaments – a team with such a great passion and dedication towards reaching their biggest goal: being able to compete with the boys. They are a part of the absolute elite on the female scene and our goal is to lift this team to an even higher level, maybe even serious contenders on the male scene." said Steffen Thomsen, the owner of Copenhagen Flames.
"Now, first of all, the focus is on DreamHack Showdown Valencia, where the winner will qualify for DreamHack Open Rotterdam and compete against male teams. It would mean so much to the team to be able to qualify for a tournament like this than winning big prize pools. We spotted that passion from the start of our process, which only made the team more attractive to us.
This team is filled with talent, work ethics, passion and dedication, which also matches our values here at Copenhagen Flames. Whether you are a boy or a girl, these are the values and personalities we're looking for in our club. We have never been afraid to do things differently from other organisations, we're constantly searching for the highest maximum potential in esport as a whole, and not just one or two games."
Copenhagen Flames Female has the following lineup:
