nKnown take their first Go4SKILL Cup win
The last cup of July has been played and the month has ended with a suprise winner! For everyone that does not know them or has not followed the cup, we are talking about the german proleague team nKnown. First registered as "Cardinals" in early 2014, Cardinals were signed by nKnown in November 2014 and have been with the geman organisation ever since. While nKnown definetely had impressive results - you dont become #5 in the SKILL Proleague with out a reason - they seemed to lack firepower to actually win a SKILL competition. Last Sunday however, things went considerably different. The german team kickstarted the cup with rock solid victories (9:0, 9:4, 9:5) against team Pro Gaming, Pupilos di Kuduro and the well known EnRo Griffins. Having defeated one of our Proleague finalists, their next opponent was going to be of the same caliber. The moody goddess of SKILL seemed in favor of nKnown today, as they battled (9:7) past PENTA Sports and directly into the final, where the veteran mix of LaGP was already waiting on their opponent. While both teams where on their debut and full of momentum, nKnown closed the last game of the day masterfully with an 9:5 victory over LaGP. While both teams had serious momentum going for them, in my opinion nKnown latest period of roster stability paid out and made the difference for them. While I can not tell you the exact reasons, one thing is for sure: we definetely will see more from those two teams in the near future!
