Meet the teams of WCIP Season V: Group A
A little bit later than usual, but here none the less! I bring you the teams of WCIP broken down into two parts of Group A and Group B. Read more to get a break down and the introduction of the 8 teams in Group A!
ieS Virtual Gaming
against All authority.wc3
aRirang made their debut last season, and it was a shaky one. They blasted their way through qualifications for this season like the last, but unlike last season, they appear to be much stronger than before. With new stronger korean members added to their squad, it is likely we could be seeing this team much higher in the rankings than their last performance.
Ex-MYM.WC3 are the Season III and Season IV champions, and the only team to win to consecutives titles in the WCIP. This veteran team is claims the the throne with a powerful grip and it will be tough to break it as they contain some of the best players in the world on their team. Expect nothing less than grade A performance from this team as they will most likely be defending their title in the playoffs. With this season being tougher than ever, will they be able to achieve 3 straight golds in a row?
ieS Virtual Gaming is the classic team of WCIP that won WCIP Season I. This team has gone through many many line up changes as they bounce between a strong team, and then a sub-par team. Last season everyone expected a powerhouse team,but this was not the case as they nearly got last place in the group stage. This season they are off to a little better start, but only time will tell if this team can return to their season 1 strength and dominate.
Against All Authority.WC3 is a brand new team to WCIP that acutally had a bit of fortune on their side. This team actually lost in the very last round of qualification and missed making it into the season by the skim of their teeth, but since the collapse of Infernal Gamers happend, this team of french commrades got their invite to the season. They got a rough start so far, but have had really rough opponents, we will see if they can turn things around in time for playoffs.
Praetoriani is no stranger to anyone familiar with the warcraft 3 scene. This team has been around along time, but is making their WCIP debut this season. Much more known to the WC3L Series, they have decided to give WCIP a try and ripped through qualification and now have high goals for the groupstage. This team contains very strong players are the the favorites to advance out of their group to the playoffs.
Teamedit.. is another classic veteran team of WCIP that have won 2nd and 3rd place in previous seasons of WCIP, but have yet to achieve their goal of the 1st place gold. Their team also was known last season for some contraversy as they decided to drop out of WCIP at the end of their run in playoffs least season, but only to strangely make a return this season by batteling their way through the loser bracket of qualification. Lets hope things go much smoother for them this season as S.o.K.o.L the Season IV MVP will be battling for repeat nomination.
eXpertise is the only chinese team to ever be in WCIP groupstage to this day. They had a solid 3rd place performance in Season III, but a shockingly bad performance in Season IV pretty much losing all their clan wars and nearly being dropped out of WCIP and forced to do qualification again. If it wasn't for team Millenium disbanding, eXpertise would have had to battle in qualficiation, but instead got saved. Their starting results are starting to look a little like last season, so hopefully they will get it together else a repeat of last season is in order.
Team Empire formerly known as SJ Gaming from last season did fairly well in Season IV obtaining 4th place, compared to their 2nd place title in Season III. This season their team is looking even stronger as they have picked up some more players and are hungry once again for a first time WCIP gold. They are off to a decent start, lets see if they can keep that momentum throughout the entire groupstage.
