Polaris Esports’ debut lands them 4th place in BTS Pro Series Season 8: Southeast Asia
Polaris Esports’ debut tournament in the BTS Pro Series Season 8: Southeast Asia landed them in 4th place after losing their matchup against Motivate.Trust Gaming in the playoffs.
Having defeated OB Esports x Neon and Nigma Galaxy (former Galaxy Racer) respectively, they lost to Motivate.Trust Gaming 2-0 in the lower brackets of the playoffs.
Having been able to clinch 4th place in their debut tournament, the former Adroit squad seemed promising.
In a private inquiry, Polaris CEO Khasim Mirza revealed that the team still has unfinished business and thus the roster was revived. “We, the org and players, felt it was an unfinished business. The team came to an abrupt end at the latter part of 2020 and believed we could’ve gone further as a team. Individually, they are really talented.”
“Right now, I have only one expectation, and that is that they get better every single day. We don’t wanna rush things. Even if they’re former teammates, all of them came from different teams and have different understanding and playstyle of the game. Given the right support system, I’m pretty sure we can emerge as champions,” he added.
Meanwhile, Polaris team captain Marvin “Boomy” Rushton stated that they are still trying to rebuild their team chemistry.
“Our current plan is, of course, just to build team chemistry inside and outside of the game. We don’t wanna pressure ourselves yet, the DPC season is still months away, we just want to be mesh together and play accordingly till the season begins anew,” the former TNC Predator stated. “I think we have the potential to become a strong team and get good results in DPC events. We all have different strong points and also weaknesses, we just need to mesh together and do everything together #AboveAllOdds” Boomy added.
Fans of Polaris Esports can catch more tournament action from them as they would be competing next in the Yamei Pro Series and Predator Esports Circuit Philippines.
