Team Orbit is excited to announce another team acquisition! A new Gears of War roster will be playing under the organization.
Gears of War is a third-person shooter played on Xbox One. The second season of the Gears of War Pro League, presented by ESL, is set to begin on February 11th and the Team Orbit roster will be playing in it! They qualified via the open qualifiers, beating out 150 other teams to get there. The Pro League will have a $50,000 prize pool. Tune in for these weekly broadcasts every Thursday at 5:00 PM PST on www.twitch.tv/GearsofWar.
Prison has been playing since the original Gears of War is one of two current pros that has been pro since that time. He has multiple major tournament wins under his belt, including the 2009 national championship. On this roster, Prison is the shotcaller. He is confident that the team will do well this season.
"There's a lot of talent in the league this season and it's the first time we've ever been considered an "underdog." I believe we are going to catch a whole lot of teams by surprise. We got a lot to prove this season and the confidence I have for this team is unmatched. It's more like a family than a team," he says.
The management behind Team Orbit is confident in this Gears of War team as well and wishes them the best of luck in season 2 of the Pro League!
