FOREVER 21 to play with bENITA in Valencia; coach SEMPHIS checks in
DreamHack Showdown is set to kick off tomorrow in Valencia, Spain, pitting some of the top female teams in the world against one another.
Unfortunately, North America's own FOREVER 21 will feature a slightly different lineup than the one they qualified to the event with, due to former Nemesis fe member Juliana "missPerceived" Tosic being unable to attend because of "passport complications".
HLTV and Dust2.us have been informed that missPerceived's replacement will be none other than Benita "bENITA" Novshadian, who was placed on CLG Red's bench at the end of May in favor of former Dignitas fe member Catherine "CAth" Leroux.
Additionally, Dust2.us have learned that standing behind the team will be none other than former Splyce and Envy man Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen. The player has been largely inactive since Old Guys Club's run in MDL Season 30 concluded.
FOREVER 21's roster for DreamHack Showdown will be:
- Stephanie "missharvey" Harvey
- Julie "Bouchard" Bouchard
- Brianna "masq" Becker
- Klaudia "klaudia" Beczkiewicz
- Benita "bENITA" Novshadian
- Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen (Coach)
FOREVER 21 have been drawn into Group B alongside CLG Red, Besiktas, and Chinese side 7PM fe. Their opening match will be tomorrow at 9:30 AM EDT against CLG Red, giving bENITA a chance to send her former teammates to the lower bracket right out of the gates.
