Our DotA team wrapped up the DPC Winter season with wins over 5RATFORCESTAFF and Wildcard Gaming, finishing with a record of 5-2, good for 3rd place in North America. Unfortunately, only the top two teams in NA are invited to the Lima Major, which means Nouns has missed its shot at competing in the upcoming LAN. Now, some rest, relaxation, and reflection are in order, before they start up competition again with the BTS Pro Series Season 14.
Our CS:GO team took home 1st place in the ESEA Cash Cup: NA Winter 2023 #2! Fantastic run by the team, with 2-0 wins over Detonate & Vendetta, on their way to the $9,000 prize. Well earned! The team is competing in the ESL Challenger League S44 this week with a strong test against Brazilian org MIBR. Boa sorte!
Carson 4 Kill during Cash Cup Grand Final vs Vendetta
Our Pokémon Unite team placed 2nd in EU (with victory over NA rival) during the Nouns Esports sponsored UNITE Rivals 2023 tournament held Jan 21st-29th. Top teams from NA & EU battled it out to see which rival region opponent they would face based on placement. Congratulations to Talibobo Believers, Nouns Esports, TimeToShine, and Amaterasu for winning against their RIVALS! Thanks to our Tournament Organizer GaMa, casters spragels & CrisHeroes, our EU champion player Ghatlue, everyone that participated, and Unite fans for tuning in!
Now, catch the team competing on Saturday in the Pokémon Unite Championship Series February Cup - Europe.
