Title: [Player Transfer] Thunder joins Phoenix GaminG
Post by: darcrow on February 12, 2018, 04:10:41 pm
We follow the move of Prathibhath 'Thunder' Imalsha Peiris from Tech Morph ‘Team Envy Us’ to PnX Gaming in a fashion that has taken the Sri Lankan Call Of Duty community by storm.

Thunder the man who has been at the top of Sri Lanka's Call of Duty eSports tournaments since joining Maximum eSports in 2009/10 forged a path to the top in quick fashion, establishing himself as a top tier player. Thunder enjoyed stellar success during his stint at Maximum eSports, with the highlight being his teams  SLCG Championship win in 2014. He joined Tech Morph Gaming in mid 2016 where he played in Team Envy Us for a period of one year. Thunder over the years has brought fear to more than just a few Call of Duty teams given the caliber of player that he is.

Keeping track of this year’s GCWL, the community noticed that Thunder had not registered under his current clan Tech Morph – this was a shock to most teams and players. Shortly thereafter an announcement (seen below) was made by Tech Morph Gaming in social media stating that he was "multi-clanning" which goes against local eSports rules and also against Tech Morph policies.  The claim was that Thunder had joined Phoenix Gaming without giving notice to Tech Morph. This lead Tech Morph to relieve Thunder of his duties as a Call of Duty player for Team Envy Us. When contacted, Tech Morph Gaming had no comment to be shared in regards to the matter.

Phoenix Gaming having immense COD4 talent in their roster already, did not fail to find the needle in the haystack and grab the opportunity to officially invite "Thunder" into their ranks. Will this be enough to bring them the success in Call of Duty that they were missing for the last 11 years?



Catching up with Phoenix Gaming this is what they had to say regarding the situation as it is currently.

"Well Thunder is a veteran in the Lankan gaming scene and he has always been among the top tier teams for quite some while, having someone of Thunder's caliber will of course help us to keep our dynasty stronger than ever."

Getting in touch with a player from n00b Alliance this is what he had to say:

"Thunder was one of the best players back when I started playing COD 4 promod back in 2013. He was doing really well at Team Max winning two SLCG titles, but after team max disbanded he was not able to perform at the level he was capable of, though he joined TM he was not able to achieve as much as he did in team max. COD4 is a team game and it is really difficult for one person to carry a team. I don't think it will make much of difference to COD4 rankings unless he gets a good team to play in PnX. Currently nA and TM are doing really well in COD4 scene and have the top teams under their wing."

Can Thunder drive a COD4 wing that'll bump n00b Alliance and Tech Morph off the top 5 ranks? Will COD4 thrive under Thunder's leadership? Will a new team emerge to the top of this year’s rankings or will the changes not settle in too well with everyone? Only time will tell.

Tell us what you think in the thread below!

First of all Good luck Thunder !

He's one of the players we looked up to back in 2013 and he's undoubtedly one of the best in Sri Lanka.

However CoD4 is a team title and one can never forget the times back in team Maximum kwickstep & SV opening up the path for the rest of their team while thunder, cj & rocker picking up poorly positioned enemies with ease because of that. (Not to forget rocker's clutch rounds camping the hell out till enemies get bored  :P ). After that TM Envyus had a pretty strong line up too to support thunder.

A good team is crucial to winning titles in COD4 and it's been evident throughout the years.

Seems pnx is pretty much ready to grab the title,

(However had to read the above line about 4 times to see if I wasn't reading wrong  :P )

Well good luck all n let's see if the lineup of ranks in COD4 consisting of yellow, green and blue will change to a bit of red at least. ;)

I dont see the purpose of Writing an article of my fellow team mate friend Thunder

i saw Major Player transfers from TM to NA from PNX to Max none of the above player transactions were published or announced

as the gaming community this  should stop immediately  like taking sides

Thunder's article is just one of many to come :) We're not singling out just this move, and as always, not taking sides! We've started an initiative to cover local eSports news properly, starting with Thunders move. Explanation here:

I'm sure he was playing 1v5. Yes. I'm sure. Pretty sure. And the other 4 were dozing off. Wow. Just.
Wow!
