NerdRage co-owner Rupert “RUDIAK” Cary said in a Twitlonger post: “Over the last few months we have been closely watching the Overwatch scene to find a suitable team with a huge amount of untapped skill, capable of becoming one of the best teams out there.
“We are confident in the future of Overwatch as an esport in Europe and additionally we will be using the team at the forefront of a number of projects we will be involved with over 2017.”

Flex/support player Trob added: “I’m really happy with our line-up. We have been together for almost three months now without any roster change. We all have very high ambitions.
“We’ve had decent placements in weekly Go4 tournaments, top four just about every week, and it only gets better. When NerdRage contacted us they were super interested in our team. Our goals are similar and we’ve gotten a really good impression of them. We are very excited to work with them going forwards.”
