From whale to tiger: Former Team Whales member InSomnus switches to EVOS ViP
It's a day of twists and turns for PUBG Mobile esports Malaysia; well, just two, but still enough to feel certain emotions. Hours after Sean “InSomnus” Tee Yau Terng was announced to leave Team Whales today, the scouter pulled a switcharoo as EVOS ViP revealed that he has joined the white tigers as their latest member, in the best way possible - a wacky video!
"We were looking for a high firepower, frontline player, and InSomnus ticked all of the boxes we had," said team manager Andrew "AurOra" Chen, adding that he's also an experienced player with decent performance in the last PUBG Mobile Professional League Malaysia/Singapore (PMPL MY/SG Season 3). "He has an ability to gather the players together in-game, that’s his contribution to the team’s dynamic. Also, he’s a real try-hard (a compliment actually)."
Admittedly, the Facebook Gaming Creator (yes, InSomnus streams too) initially wasn't at the top of the list, but he was already friends of the EVOS ViP squad prior to joining (LUXXY98 played PC games with him and his former teammates) - he even contacted them directly to try out for the vacant spot. "From the first match he played with us, I was impressed that he bonded so well with the team," AurOra exclaimed. "It felt like he was already with us for a long time, which makes him different from the other candidates."
An extra member in any esports team would undoubtedly leave some players out of the battlefield, so why did they bring InSomnus on board as a sixth member? "We want to introduce healthy competition among themselves," said the team manager, joking with his analyst (to be revealed!) that they should pit them against each other in Team Deathmatch mode, with the top 4 performers playing in the day's matches (of course not). At the end of the day, "everyone here is a good player. Any player combination has its perks, and it's a major headache wondering how to dispatch."
That's one headache that's bittersweet, though definitely on the sweeter side. EVOS ViP's firepower has proven to be much more explosive last season, placing in the top 5 of PMPL MY/SG Season 3, and with InSomnus on board, there's definitely more gunpowder in the team now to go kaboom (in a good way).
"Right now, we are working our way up with our training schedule and regime, perfecting our gameplay step by step, day by day," said AurOra. "I have the utmost confidence in our team for the upcoming PMPL MY/SG Season 4. #EVOSROAR!"
Wonder how an aggressive PUBG Mobile team make their rotations? InSomnus shared his insights on how his previous squad Team Whales did just that during PMPL MY/SG Season 3.
