With our recent announcement of our involvement in this years Gfinity Elite Series, we have been searching for a Rocket League lineup to come on board that we felt matched our ambition, drive and also allowed us to continue to support the UK scene.
We are proud to reveal our new lineup that we believe do just that, and so we welcome to the team:
Jamie ‘Tinny’ Sparkes
Jamie discovered Rocket League in July 2015, and soon after his competitive nature launched him into the esports world. Tinny found success in 2016, with a 3rd place finish in the Pulsar Premier League playoffs, an ESL weekly cup win, multiple 2v2 tournament wins, with his main achievement being reaching the first RLCS group stage. He wants to achieve even more in 2017 and is off to a good start by placing 3rd in the MCS league table and making playoffs.
Daniel ‘Cheerio’ Björklund
Daniel started playing Rocket League at its release and fell in love with the game immediately, but it wasn’t until January 2016 when he started playing the game competitively. Cheerio has placed 1st in multiple 3v3 and 2v2 tournament as well as a 3rd place in the Pulsar Premier League and reaching the group stage of the first ever season of RLCS.
Mitchell ‘Shakahron’ Johnson
Mitchell has been playing Rocket League since the day of its release, climbing the competitive ladder and creating a reputation as a player to be respected. The end of 2016 and start of 2017 has seen him take 1st in multiple 2v2 and 3v3 tournaments, a strong push for RLCS qualification before narrowly missing out on the knockout stage of MCS with Retry. This is his first dive into the world of esports, He’s relishing the chance to impress and is excited for the challenges ahead.
Tristan ‘Pulsar’ Jones (Coach / backup)
Tristan began playing Rocket League shortly after the games release in July 2015. Pulsar enjoyed playing the game casually at first, but quickly noticed the games potential as an esport. Pulsar played in many tournaments along friends with moderate success. After play in many tournaments and proving himself as a high-level player, Pulsar was picked up by Eff0rt, a team that had previously qualified for RLCS. After some notable victories over top 10 teams, and falling just short of top 8 in RLCS, eff0rt ultimately disbanded. Pulsar now strives to maintain a high level of play and frequently holds a top 100 status on the ranked leader boards by competing in tournaments with his friends, whilst he focuses more on his studies at university.
We are also excited to reveal that the team are looking to live and train together from a gaming house in Sheffield over the next 6 months.
Statement from Adam ‘Adz’ Jessop, CEO Endpoint Esports Ltd
I have always been a big fan of the Rocket League as it makes for entertaining viewing as well as being enjoyable at all skill levels, and we have been interested in picking up a competitive lineup for a while now. I am proud to be able to welcome a young and hungry team to our organisation and support them over the next 6 months. They have a lot of experience in the game and a huge amount of potential having previously been a part of the RLCS in various stages. Having the guys living together will be a big step for them as they focus on their budding esports careers and we will be documenting their progress as they compete in the Gfinity Elite Series and other competitions.
