Origen Out, Hertha BSC Berlin In

In recent relegation matches, Origen Gaming suffered unfortunate losses that relinquished their LCS spot. Now moved to the challenger series, Origen might be out of the league entirely. Hertha BSC Berlin is looking to replace them with a star studded roster that could threaten the top team. Kikis, Amazing, Hybrid, and two Korean imports will serve as the backbone of this roster. Hertha BSC Berlin has been wanting to dive into the Esports industry for a while now, and this is a fantastic opportunity to do so. After Origen’s terrible season, standards are low for the replacement team. Hertha BSC will have one split to enter the LCS and two full splits to qualify for worlds. With a mixture of veterans and promising talent, this could very well be a possibility. Their shotcalling and macro play will certainly be top tier. In addition, Hertha BSC has already promised facilities for such a team. They will reside one of the football houses that has been transformed into a gaming mansion. Players will have access to the latest computers, technology, and analysis to improve their gameplay. It is well known that the EULCS and EUCS are some the most competitive leagues in the world. This squad will be under great pressure to perform, but managers and analysts predict success. Coach Hermes has given rapport about the individual mechanics of these players and team cohesion. Look for Hertha BSC to dominate the challenger scene and beyond.
