Touting an undefeated record in the NADPC, Quincy Crew captain KheZu took to Twitter to make the case for getting picked up by an org.
The North American Dota scene is not exactly a sponsorship haven. Of the teams currently in Division 1, two of them have orgs. The big one of course is Evil Geniuses and the second, a new addition, is Wildcard Gaming. Even still, the top teams of the region don’t have an org backing them currently. Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann, captain of Quincy Crew, took to Twitter to plead his team’s case for attracting an org to sign with.
KheZu’s Pitch to Orgs
Quincy Crew captain, KheZu, contends that his team is “everything an org wants.” Touting their current 5-0 record in the current DPC tour, he noted the hardships that the team faced getting to this point. Two of their players have been playing on ping, and they haven’t been able to bootcamp the entirety of the season. In addition, they flew out Remus “ponlo” Goh Zhi Xian over to the States out of their own pocket so they would not be penalized. Despite this, the team has still seen impressive results during this first tour.
KheZu also notes that players stream regularly and are willing to be involved in any kind of org content. He adds that they “are hungry, [they] try really hard.”
KBBQ: "You like scrappy, determined underdogs trying to climb the mountaintop against privilege and prestige? That’s Quincy Crew."
With TI just on the horizon, we had the pleasure of speaking to Quincy Crew's manager Jack "KBBQ" Chen about his thoughts on the season and his team in the run-up to the $40 million event.
This is not the first time that Quincy have been competing without an org at their back. Before TI last year, the team announced their commitment to playing without an org going into the event. Quincy Crew’s manager, Jack “KBBQ” Chen has continuously been working to get the team the resources they need. he also tweeted about the situation, noting the team’s success without an org. He ends his tweet with a pointed question: “Someone wanna help us out?”
Quincy’s Record So Far
Quincy’s new roster has had impressive results this tour. Though dropping some games, they have not lost a single series so far. The results are impressive when you consider the team has three new players. KheZu stepped down from his former role as coach to play the offlane. The other two new additions are pos 5 player ponlo and pos 4 player Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara. Recently, the team took down arguably their biggest competition in Team Undying, in a close 2-1 series.
With these results, Quincy looks about ready to lock in a spot in the first major of the year. Their last test will likely be their match against Evil Geniuses. Though the results are impressive, it is still a tight market for orgs in NA. Things are almost never certain in esports, but in their current form, they could be a good fit for an org pickup.
