Today we are happy to announce we have re-signed our former Overwatch Ice players! We have also signed a manager for the team in Cija!
NYYRIKKI Overwatch has represented our brand flawlessly in the time they’ve represented #theHUNT. In the most recent Open Division season the team had a great series of results that resulted in them qualifying to playoffs for the first time ever with a score 10-1 in the regular season. The group dynamic we see day-to-day is really special and we believe these are the best individuals to represent us once more in Overwatch, but this time as the official main team.
After a great run in the last OD we know what we did wrong and what we need to focus on the most. One issue we had was the lack of staff since lövi had to do too many jobs at the same time. That’s why I’m extremely happy to welcome Cija to NYYRIKKI, she will act as our Manager and has already made a big difference in the team environment.Anatec, Overwatch Captain.
The whole team was happy to sign with NYYRIKKI again. We have a great relationship with the staff and we’re confidently moving towards the tournaments that are coming up.
We have also signed Cija (former Contenders Young and Beautiful (YaB)). to the role of Overwatch Manager. She will complete the vital structure of the team and with her experience, standards and great attitude we couldn’t be happier with the way the team looks heading into the next few months.
I’ve been a fan of Nyyrikki since their first appearance at Assembly 2017 and am proud to join this outstanding org. Coach Lovi has built a team of highly motivated and talented players and we look forward to the challenges of the Overwatch Path-To-Pro 2019 season.Cija, Overwatch Manager
