May 18th, 2017 0 Comments

Team YP eSports organization, is expanding their lineup. The team has secured a Super Smash Bros player with a Captain Falcon main that is sure to make the town talk.   

Los Angeles (May 2017) – After a year of searching for a new team to add to the line-up, Team YP has finally found their match. It’s with great pleasure that the organization introduces Super Smash Bros. 4 into their lineup.

Smash Bros is not new territory for Team YP. For fans who have followed us for years now, they’ll remember that the organization already had a Smash Bros player. “Our loyal followers would know that one of the players we signed to Team YP a little over a year ago was Bizzarro Flame” said Brad Burns, VP of YouPorn “feels good to be returning to familiar territory, and we think our fans will appreciate the newest addition as well”

With that Team YP would like to welcome fan favorite Fatality to the family. A Captain Falcon main who recently won 2nd place at one of the most stacked Smash 4 tournaments in the world; 2GGC: Civil War he’s sure to make some noise with the team. “What’s great about Fatality is that he brings a new kind of energy to the organization” continued Burns “He reminds us a lot of Bizzarro in that way. He’s someone who can hype up his character and the organization in a positive way, all while winning tournaments.”

We’ll be seeing a lot more of Fatality in the coming months; he’ll be participating in Gwinnett Brawl over the weekend, Momocon in Atlanta beginning May 25 until May 28 and CEO mid-June, in Orlando. Want to follow his progress? Follow Team YP and Fatality on social media.

Beginning early April Team YP Overwatch Europe will be the new Overwatch Paris. So which players will we see more of on our twitch stream this spring? First up, Clément Dubois, nickname: Quoizamama.

Next we have Christopher Ulmer better known by his gamer name EAX. He’s competed in multiple games including Evolve and Counter Strike, where at a young age he began playing with a top team. Another player who is familiar with playing with top teams is LoA. Coming from a Battlefield background LoA was a main helicopter pilot, jet pilot and infantry for one of the top teams in the game.

“We are so excited to welcome Quoizamama, EAX and LoA to Team YP” said Burns “this new roster will allow the team to expand internationally and compete at a higher level than ever before.”
Also helping us welcome these new players to the team are – of course, Nightwane long time captain of Team YP; Valmaster, pro gamer playing for Team YP Streetfighter IV and Overwatch; and finally Osnazeni, the newest Team YP Overwatch member who will be jumping ships from Team YP Overwatch France to join Team YP Overwatch EU.
