Season two of the Gfinity Elite Series kicks off this Friday. Our Street Fighter, Rocket League and CSGO teams have been hard at work practicing ahead of the opening week of competition. Before the action begins, let's take a look at who will be representing the Red Army this season.
Street Fighter V
Sean "ImStillDaDaddy" Dench
Afsar "Afii" Ali
Shakil "Shakz" Ghazi
Anthony "GuN SLinGa" Phillips
Sam "GibbyGreatness" Gibson
Zain "Zain23" Jameel
For Street Fighter V, we have made no changes to our main roster. ISDD & co will be back under the Infused banner for another season of exciting Street Fighter action. Joining them from the Elite Draft will be GibbyGreatness and Zain23. The new additions to the red army are more than capable of making an impact in-game and have impressed in recent tournaments.
Here's what our Laura main Afsar "Afii" Ali had to say ahead of the new season:
"Our expectations for season 2 of the Elite Series is to win it for Team Infused! After being so close last season, we really want to be the dominant force without a shadow of a doubt!"
Ryan "Doomsee" Graham
Jonathan "Radioo" Ekelund
Martin "MccLuvin" Read
Danny "DanzhizzLe" Smol
Marc "Iceteazy" Weber
Casper "Al Dente" Vissing
A phenomenal undefeated streak last season saw the boys in red qualify for the playoffs with ease. Unluckily, the squad ran into an impressive Endpoint team to finish third in season one. With the additions of MccLuvin and Danzhizzle, the team will be looking to take home the championship for season two.
A confident Doomsee had his say on the upcoming season:
"We al dentify this season to be a great one. With the help of our fluffy rabbits bouncing to the tunes on the radioo, we know we'll be mccluvin this season. Our heads will be as cool as iceteazy and we shall bring doom, you'll see."
George "ZED" Bear
Aaron "AaroN" Hemmings
Aaron "Frei" Frei
Zaki "Danceyz" Dance
Mick "MCK" McDonald
Jake "Batham" Batham
Ryan "Ruleh" Payne
Jesper "Jesp" Johansson
Last season, the boys in red came so very close to qualifying for the playoffs. With a couple of changes to the main roster, the team will be focused on cementing their place in the top four places this season.
IGL George "ZED" Bear shared his expectations for season two:
"Coming into Season 2 we're feeling confident of hitting the top 4 and going from there. No games will be easy but with our strong lineup we should reach our goal."
There you have it! The Red Army will be out in full force this Friday when the opening week of Street Fighter gets underway.
