Dogs Of War: Academy Schools The Competition
Before ESEA Season 29 started, Dogs Of War brought on the roster of Just10, NgxnE, 1juke, ohDeer, and NicoPz to represent the organization in ESEA Intermediate as their Academy CS:GO team. After it was known that this roster was brought into the organization, there were a lot of doubters and some were unsure if the roster had the talent to make it. Quickly, the lineup proved they have potential and came to play. The team is currently 8-1 in ESEA Intermediate and is on an 8 game winning streak! 1juke commented on what he thinks helps the team stand out, "The thing that separates us from the rest, chemistry. We’ve stayed together as a roster through all of open and now IM, compared to other teams who are always making changes to their roster." Being halfway through ESEA Season 29, every match counts, every win matters. "We usually get into a server and talk about setups and executes," ohDeer says about match preparation. "This team is seriously something else. When we announced we were looking for an academy team, I had about 4-5 offers within the first day including these guys. A lot of the teams looked interesting and promising, but something in my gut told me to get these guys, so I did," Omar Bakhsh recalls, "It was a good call. These guys have been nothing, but respectful, mature, and professional. Not to mention their in-game skill." As stated before, ESEA Season 29 is halfway over and the team has high hopes for playoffs and even jumping up a couple divisions. "We know we’re one of if not the best team in IM. We feel confident in making advanced," 1juke explains. Before playoffs, the team has some very important matches coming up against Top 10 teams in ESEA Intermediate. Winning these next few matches will 100% secure the team's spot in Intermediate Playoffs and a chance at $8,000. ohDeer gives his thoughts on these next few matches, "We're just gonna play our game. We're going to prep as if they were just any other team." It is clear that Dogs Of War: Academy has been making plays and taking names. The organization plans to keep this team around for a while as they've proved to possess very rare potential.
