(*updates: updated with TEN's confirmation of quadrant)
Sense the mods archived the previous forum pages where we were spamming, this room can serve the purpose of restart rumors.
Start Date: 27th February 2019
Time: 12:00 utc (not the usual 5)
Teams Confirmed to Join:
North East +|+ Home to SGR the past few servers - SGR will return to North East again. Winners of last com1 along side TEN alliance who played from SE quadrant. SGR is going to be missing a lot of their players. A restart too early for them.
(fnx perspective) Moto: We care about all our players pre-made or recruited.
North West -|+ Home to Villains the past 2 years and Vinci/GRID adds another 2 year to it (a lot same faces) - they're rumored to start in NW. However, it's not clear if they'll start under the same name or not. Twice won com1, once under name of Villains (2 years ago) and once with name Vinci (3 years ago). Like SGR they're also going to be missing some of their core players.
(fnx perspective) Moto: Quality over quantity. Tough policy against recruitment (might change this year).
South East +|- TEN confirmed that they'll be returning to com1. They were waiting for com7 (their home server) to start - but since it does not seem TG has any plans for com7 - they'll be returning to com1 and back to their South East quadrant. Winners of the last com1 along side SGR and winner of previous com7 round of 2017-18.
(fnx perspective) Moto: Hard work beats experience
Dutch Meta A team of 60-90 Dutch players planning to join server 1. Players from tourney server - and probably local .nl servers trying an international 1x server for a change. No news on their quadrant of choice yet. But with TEN showing in South East quadrant - it's possible they take SW or fight someone for dominance.
Don't have a moto for them since I do not know them well enough.
