Theo Daffurn, Chief Operations Officer had this to say on the topic;
“The signing of this top level all-Finnish line-up is extremely exciting for us. We are constantly on the lookout for talented, hard working teams and individuals across all eSports titles. We look forward to working with the team and help to provide the support and direction in order to help them reach their overall goals”
Miika “Second” Vilkko shares his thoughts;
“We are very grateful to SkitLite for bringing us in. It was a surprise that we could get into the organisation because we are playing a slightly smaller eSports title. We want to prove that Paladins is really exciting and has potential to be one of the top eSports games.
At the moment we have been training hard and we will continue with a goal of attending LAN tournaments in 2017. We are currently the best Finnish team and we hope to remain there in the future of Paladins!”
We wish them the best of luck in there upcoming matches and look forward to a long and rewarding partnership!
