“Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle, foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors.”
The story of Wind and Rain is very similar to that of the Legend.
WAR started fighting at the Ragnarok tournament 2017, battle after battle to the final victory.
64 Nordic teams faced the long road in order to reach the final. Two Gods clashed for the victory: Wind and Rain (ex. Polite and Mature) vs Veni Vidi Vici.
After 5 competitive games, coach Kazehaya and his champions could finally raise the prestigious trophy, qualifying for the Closed Qualifier tournament to enter the European Challenger Series.
These were the words of Alex Hirst, coach and manager of Wind and Rain, shortly after the ragnarok victory. Awareness or madness?
WAR players were ready for the new challenge, but an infernal group in the CSQ left little hope of qualifying.
But again the team was ready to silence their d oubters. Considered the worst of their group, the Nordic Wind and Rain warriors dropped into the rift with nothing to lose.
After the first important win versus team Reign, WAR had to face the tournament favorite: Team Red Bull. The team was build by Redbull not only to win the CSQ, but also the Challenger Series itself to join the EU LCS. It was then that the team demonstrated to everyone their will to win. A Shocking win vs Red Bull opened the way into the playoffs.
The group stage was dominated losing only one game versus Euronics Gaming with the first place mathematically insured.
The dream was just a match away, Tricked Esport were oblitered 3-0 by the Wind and Rain warriors in the final for the European Challenger Series qualification.
As legend tells the five Gods who fought until the final battle lost their way. Their name will be written in the stone but Wind and Rain needed new Heroes to show that god’s can bleed:
The Storm is not over. Another quest is ready to begin, another battle to be fought. The dawn of a new challenge awaits the warriors… for Wind and Rain, silencing doubters has become the standard.
