The illustrious Quincy Crew has finally been picked up by an organization! Join us as we look at the announcement and reactions.
After what feels like years of searching for the right sponsor, the North American powerhouse, Quincy Crew has finally found its organization. The crew is one of North America’s top Dota 2 teams, and have been unsponsored since March of 2020. However, with an announcement, Quincy Crew has taken another step forward and is now a part of Soniqs Esports.
The announcement of Quincy Crew into Soniqs was a pleasant surprise to the majority of the Dota 2 community. The team, comprising Yawar “Yawar” Hassan, Quinn “Quinn” Callahan, Rodrigo “Leslao” Santos, Arif “MSS” Anwar, and their newest member Adrian “Fata” Trinks, has had a good performance over the past couple of months. Despite also having good performances at major events, Quincy Crew hadn’t been picked up by a sponsor until now, much to the community’s surprise. However, all that was settled with a fun announcement video of the Quincy Crew assembling under their new banner.
