The French team have been playing together since 2014, with notable achievements includes 1st place finishes at GA'lloween 2015 & 2016, Gamer’s Assembly 2016 and ETF2L’s Nation’s Cup 2016 under Team France, and is considered to be one of the best French-based team in current times.

In a interview on nerdRage’s website, Ombrack said the following:

We’re really glad to see that organizations such as nerdRage still have an interest in a game we’ve been playing for years. nerdRage has a good reputation in the community, by having really strong teams in the past. Overall we’re excited about this, and we hope we can continue on improving as a team, and live up to the expectations.

nerdRage’s owner RUDIAK also give his insight about the move from the same interview:

nerdRage is very excited to be appearing back in the TF2 scene, we have been waiting to find a team capable of putting in the dedication required to become a successful team. We look forward to working with these guys and especially eager to start expanding into the French eSports scene. The team will be appearing at Gamer’s Assembly and iSeries and we will be very proud to have them supporting our colours.

The new nerdRage roster under the French banner is now:

  • Scout: blade

thx but I don't think you can compare us to top5 in the sense that they're still improving massively, most notably from last season to the current one.

super happy for you guys, definitely the most deserving team of sponsorship at the moment

saamidk if garbage tier prem gave up on current season to offclass counts as a top team

We didn't give up, we're scrimming just as much as we were before and probably just as keen. We just wanted to enjoy our last few weeks together instead of losing all motivation on our main classes, this was for me at least - and the part about us being garbage tier yeah you're 100% right on that
