BLADECAST TV: INVITED TEAMS PREVIEW






Frontline Tactics



Infantry

Arni
Charlini
Gibby
Peter
Scar
 
Cavalry

Ciiges
Dume
Peter
SirAlecks
 
Rangers

Kane
Menethil

Team Summary


Frontline Tactics has brought together many of Warband's most veteran and experienced players to form an immensely strong roster for the BladeCast Masters. The roster continues on from the Warband Summer Cup, bringing in infantry such as Arni, Scar and Peter. Combined with Charlini and Gibby, these five are undeniably one of the strongest infantry forces in the tournament, with only a few other teams capable of avoiding a complete stomp against them. Arni and Gibby form a powerful duo of slayers, as the winners of every 2v2 tournament in Native since 2015, and with the veteran and supremely skilled Scar alongside them it is hard to see how any other team can match the tech-level of this infantry squad. Their styles are complemented by Charlini's aggressive tactics and playstyle, as well as the ability to bring Peter in as the final piece of the puzzle. Frontline Tactics' cavalry side is no less threatening than their infantry, with the white flash Peter wreaking havoc alongside Ciiges, Dume and SirAlecks - three veterans of the team who have been playing together for many months now. All of these cavalry are Warband superstars, and as long as they can maintain their cohesion they could be the most dominant cavalry force in the tournament. In terms of rangers Frontline Tactics has brought in Menethil to work alongside Kane. Menethil is a veteran of a huge number of tournaments and top teams, and has always maintained a stellar form. Kane is a comparably newer player, but his recent form has put him right alongside Menethil in terms of skill and ability. Frontline Tactics have prepared their roster to be unbeatable. Who can stand before them?





KROWA



Infantry

Anchor
Bloody_Death
Bruce
Habi
Sotamursu
 
Cavalry

Bloody_Death
EviImay
Nomes
Shema
 
Rangers

Matt
Razer
Sotamursu

Team Summary


KROWA has an incredibly intimidating roster, with many of the scene's most experienced players coming together to form a powerhouse of a team. The team boasts 3 of the 5 members of the Castellan team which won the Battle of Bucharest, and two of the second place team's members, totalling at 5 Bucharest finalists. Any team which goes up against KROWA is going to have serious difficulty winning rounds, let alone winning sets or a match. The team seems best fit to closed maps, opting to take 5 dedicated infantry players. There are very few teams which can boast a comparable infantry roster, and none that can walk over a squad comprised of superstars such as Anchor, Bloody_Death, Bruce, Habimana and Sotamursu. The cavalry side of the team is let down by the absence of a dedicated fourth cavalry, with Bloody_Death - a very capable cavalry player in his own right - stepping into the role on open maps. However, a team would be foolish to underestimate the amount of damage players like Shema, Nomes and EviImay can cause. With cavalry such as these supporting on closed maps, the KROWA lineup looks terrifyingly strong. As if the prospects didn't look dim enough for an opposing team, they also have to contend with top tier rangers such as Matt and Razer, the latter of whom has been dubbed the Prince of LAN for his incredible performance at Bucharest. No team is safe with these two taking shots against them, let alone if the team uses its ability to field three rangers by switching Sotamursu to the class. KROWA have a star-studded lineup and the desire for gold, what else does a team need?





Unity



Infantry

Brian
Caius
Eder
Kellermann
Thorr
 
Cavalry

Brian
Firunien
Paulo
Subzer0
Woj
 
Rangers

Caius
Maximou
Paulo

Team Summary


Unity is a team known for causing upsets, knocking AE out of the WSC1 and WeDontYou out of the WNL5, and in the Warband Blitz League they managed to score their first tournament victory. There is no doubt that Unity have earned their spot amongst the top 4. The Unity infantry are one of their most devastating assets, fielding the superbly skilled Luxembourgian brothers Brian and Thorr alongside Unity veterans Caius and Kellermann. Eder is a new addition to the team, but he is certainly no stranger to playing at the top level of Warband. This infantry squad boasts excellent cohesion and teamwork, so it should be no surprise if they manage to claim every closed map they encounter. Unity has always lacked dedicated cavalry players, but for the BladeCast Masters they have recruited Firunien to try and change that. Firunien is a highly experienced player, and he joins Brian, Woj, Subzer0 and Paulo in the Unity cavalry unit. Though it remains to be seen how well Firunien will fit the Unity mould, the Unity cavalry's greatest strength has traditionally been its cohesion and ability to co-ordinate crashes precisely. In terms of rangers, Unity is not let down by Caius, Maximou and Paulo, the first of which is a veteran of the Bucharest LAN tournament. All of these archers are not only capable of landing insane shots, but of presenting serious threats in melee too. Many have underestimated Unity in the past, but now, with fresh additions and a wealth of experience amongst their core members, does any team have a chance of stopping Unity from reaching their #OneGoal?





Aequalitas



Infantry

FiSk
Gaius
LaPache
Motthe
Spada
 
Cavalry

Dissi
Gaius
Hopkiin
Watly
 
Rangers

Apollo
Yona

Team Summary


Aequalitas have found their footing in the Warband scene. After some period of fruitless tournaments they claimed a well-deserved third place in the recent WBL, and now set their sights on the BladeCast Masters gold. Aequalitas boasts a decisive infantry squad where every member knows their role; they push undeterred by any position or player their opponent might have, crushing them through an unwavering onslaught of left swings. Individually their infantry are not the strongest, but they are certainly no pushovers; Spada, Gaius, LaPache and Motthe are veterans of the team, and FiSk joins them to complete their squad. Any hesitation by the other side's infantry will result in total defeat for the foes of Aequalitas, for once these infantry press their W keys you cannot escape them. In terms of cavalry Aequalitas is in much the same situation; long-time Aequalitas players Gaius and Dissi, alongside the recent addition of the veterans Watly and Hopkiin, form a cohesive unit which always arrives to engagements on time and gets the job done, regardless of what "superstars" their opponent might have. In the WBL Aequalitas put their rangers to good use, proving their adaptability with dangerously efficient kiting tactics. Apollo has really picked up his game for Aequalitas, and his shooting has been on par with the best in the game, so alongside the old Castellan and GP veteran Yona it should be no surprise to see the kill feed filled with headshots. Aequalitas has risen rapidly through the ranks; it was bronze last time, will it be gold this time?
