Will the Talent Squad Score a Historic Three-Peat?

Will the Talent Squad Score a Historic Three-Peat?

A new season of the POWER Ligaen is underway, with the defending champions, the talent team, once again making an appearance.

By coming home from a successful trip to Romania and announcing participation in both Thunderpick World Championship 2023 Europe Series 2 and CCT East Europe Series 2 Closed Qualifier, the Talent team is ready to get more official matches under their skin. 

POWER Ligaen consists of eight teams, all competing in a Group Stage, where everyone faces each other twice in best-of-one matches, and in the end, the top four qualify for playoffs.

The final champion takes home approximately $9,000.

  • The group stage will be played in a best-of-one match format, with a total of eight teams vying for a spot in the playoffs.
  • The playoffs of the POWER Ligaen will utilize a traditional single-elimination bracket system with best-of-three matches.
The new Talent team bootcamping at the large gaming hub, Astralis Nexus, for the first time, with the in-game leader, kiR, discussing tactical strategies with the gang.

Teams competing in the 24th edition of the POWER Ligaen:

  • Astralis Talent
  • Atlantic
  • Exzentriq United
  • Sashi Esport

Only Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen remains from the former lineup, who've won the league back-to-back the last two seasons.

Our newly-recruited ingame leader, Andreas "kiR" Kirstein, is no stranger to the POWER Liga, as he has won the tournament six times.

Our coach, Alexander "alexsomfan" Nielsen, has also won the Danish tournament three times.

Chasing A Historic Three-Peat

So the question is, will the brand-new talent squad manage to secure the domestic title three times in a row?

A three-peat that would be historic for the POWER Ligaen.

  • First match: vs. XI Esport on Monday, September 11, 2023, at 21:00 CEST.
