We have been quite enthusiastic this year around with everything related to E-sports. In pursuit of knowledge, we ran into Cyber Gaming Entertainment who organize all-India E-sports events called Clan Wars. We had also written about their upcoming Season 5 tournament. They had offline qualifiers in Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and Bangalore (Also the location of their finale). The qualifiers of the prior three are over and we got a chance to talk to the winners of the Mumbai Region- Team Overcome. We had a nice chat with them and got to know a little bit more about how the world of competitive team operates.

Team Overcome is a group of awesome people, who are dedicated to gaming and are also a set of wonderful guys. We got to talk to them and got lots of insight on how the E-Sports industry works. Also, the talk shed some light on how pro players think before going into a match and what they think while in a match. We will definitely give our opinions on that, exclusively in the upcoming posts. Coming back to Team Overcome, they want India to be among the top countries in E-Sports and aim to compete internationally. This is their second tournament and they seem pretty confident, going in the finals with a positive outlook. They follow a strict practice regimen and are always trying to get better at the game. The team is well knit under the In Game Leader (IGL), Anuj and the team mates are very supportive of each other. They never underestimate opponents and give it their best every time.
WE WISH TEAM OVERCOME, BEST OF LUCK FOR THE TOURNAMENT AND ALL FUTURE ENDEAVORS!!!!
