Sri Lanka reaches finals in another International PUBG Mobile tournament

Sri Lanka reaches finals in another International PUBG Mobile tournament

Noob Alliance Team Frag have successfully made it to the final round of the E2S PUBGM Challengers Cup organized by E2S Gaming from Maldives, which saw 125 teams compete from Maldives, Mongolia and India. The final round will take place on 5th November.

We spoke to Aadil Hafees a member of Team Frag about this achievement:

Being in a Major Tournament as the E2S Challengers cup was part of our Big dream come true. We had to face so many challngers and Obstacles to be in the place where we are today. We are honoured to Be the only team from Sri Lanka to Compete in an International tournament and we as FRag Team will surely bring pride to the Nation. Getting to the finals wasnt an easy task we got through finals taking down some really tought opponents and when it came to the semi finals Day 1 Simply said We screwed Up, We were all worried and some were really upset if this will be the end of the Challengers cup, As all great leaders our leader simply motivated us by saying the same exact words that motivated the whole team to be passionate about PUBGmobile “Boys Api Globals Yannada?” Even though the words seem simple for us it was a major boost we came back from 11th place to 5th place after Day 2 with some outstanding performance and yet again have one final challenge to win the E2S challengers cup and bring pride to our MotherLanka as nA|FRag Team.  

 

We would like to thank the Organizers E2S Gaming and Personal Computers from Maldives who gave us the opportunity to take part in a Major tournament competing against 125 teams (Maldives, Mongolia, India) Also we would like to thank our Esports Clan Noob Alliance for giving us the best background support any team could have. We couldnt have done it without noob alliance.  Thank you everyone for the immense support and love you guys have shown. A simple saying that we use to follow inorder to be the best in Sri lanka – “Your Love Makes us Strong, Your Hate makes us Unstoppable”.

We wish Team Frag who will battle it out in the final, the very best of luck.

Rainbow 6 Siege made its debut in Sri Lankan Esports with the adoption of the title at the Sri Lanka Cyber Games last year. 20 teams took part across online qualifiers and LAN finals.

This year, the scene has grown to over 33 teams taking part in the Gamer.LK Clans Rainbow 6 Siege League. This will serve as Sri Lanka’s first ranked Rainbow 6 Siege event, with the Sri Lanka Esports Association bestowing the title ranked status earlier this year.
