“We are ecstatic to bring such an amazing group of competitors under our roof at Team Rival. It has been thrilling to watch the immediate impact that this group has had on the H1Z1 scene in such short order. I had the pleasure of meeting Pedro and MOLNMAN just six months ago, fresh off their appearances at the Summer Cup and it was abundantly clear that they possessed a champion’s attitude in addition to elite skillsets in battle royale survivor games. It was no surprise to see them have instant success in European H1.” - Kurtis 'RagingRavage' Coombs
