Quasar are definitely the unknown quantities of the pre-season qualifiers, and not just because they are billions of light-years away. The team, led by kaylus and Spirit, is composed of players who never made the jump to Prem before. But, don't rule them out too quickly; the team still shares a great amount of experience in Divisions 1 and 2, and it wouldn't be the first time an underdog team has made it through the pre-season playoffs.
The Scout spots are staffed by Swedes Spirit and agmosa. After leaving The Theorists, Collaide's presence on Pocket shows his drive to reach the top level, and monsta from King's Crew will be playing from across pond — under the alias of Joey. Finally, the Frenchmen kaylus and euthanasia round out the roster on the Demoman and Medic roles respectively.
Team leader kaylus shared his thoughts regarding the rocky start of his team, as well as his expectations going forward.
The team was originally created back in November, and the intent behind was to make another french team with new and upcoming players that would ideally be able to compete in D1. Sadly since then some players backstabbed us, which forced me to look in the European scene to find replacements.
Around the end of December, considering our scrim results and the other teams that were rumored to play in the qualifiers, we figured “why not us”.
Recently we were still missing 2 soldiers, I’ve noticed Collaide stopped playing with his team so I offered him to play in the qualifiers with us and see how it goes. I’ve also gotten leth but he decided he was not fit to play in the qualifiers with us today so Joey will be standing in. Honestly we’re just hoping we’ll be able to play well and seriously. If we manage to qualify that’s great otherwise we’d still end up in D1 and that was our original goal. You need to remember that neither Eutha or agmosa ever played in D1 and Spirit has only once so you could say we’re lacking experience. Every other team in the qualifiers has players that already played in Prem or at the top level in D1, so being here with them despite our soldier issues and lack of experience is already a good result in of itself
Ready to show that they are already playing on a quasi-stellar level, the Quasar squad is :
- Scout: Spirit
- Scout: agmosa
- Roamer: Joey
- Pocket: Collaide
- Demoman: kaylus
- Medic: euthanasia
