This past weekend were the first national championships for our friends in Australia and Russia.

For the Australian championship, seven APAC Pro League teams attended. Mindfreak were able to retain their favorite status and won the competition. Just as a reminder, they went to the final stages of the Six Invitational last month. Dark Sided ended up second, TABOO third and SYF GAMING forth. This seems to be a good indication of Mindfreak's level for the upcoming Pro League season. 

As a reminder, Mindfreak is composed of:

Matthew "Acez" McHenry
Etienne "Magnet" Rousseau
Jason "Lusty" Chen
Connor "Kngz" Wickham
Ethan "RizRaz" Wombwell

On the Russian side, ROOM FACTORY, who were also the favorites with their recent and surprising participation in the Six Invitational, won this first national competition with a strong 2-0  over their oponents. Also a good sign for the upcoming Challenger League.

ROOM FACTORY, still looking for a 5th player was composed this weekend of:

Zahar "PWN3F" Sinyavcev
Artyom "Shockwave" Simakov
Artur "ShepparD" Ipatov
Daniil "JoyStiCK" Gabov

We wish them good luck in the upcoming competitions!
