Top Blokes is going all out becoming very much like an organisation in and of itself after officially announcing investors financially backing the European RLCS team.
Introducing our new look...— Top Blokes (@TopBlokesRL) March 11, 2021
We are pleased to announce the start of a new chapter for us, continuing under the Top Blokes banner.
With financial backing and the ability to grow and improve, we are excited to see what we can do moving forward. More information to come soon. pic.twitter.com/Oa0gFs8kSP
The roster of Jack “FlamE” Pearton, Andy “Kassio” Landais and Archie “archie” Pickthall has made quite the impression in less than a year of competition, becoming a force to be reckoned with in the old continent.
Placing 3rd in all of Europe with 1861 RLCS points and currently qualified to the RLCS X World Championship, Top Blokes have approximate total earnings of $95,856 since its inception in June 2020.
Coach Reece "RamS" Mullins hopped on their Spring Regional Event Day 0 stream to talk more about the transition and future of the team.
“Do we want to expand into other esports? ‘Why not?’ is the answer I can give right now. I can’t legally name who’s behind us supporting us. I can’t break the law”, RamS said laughing off the tough questions nervously.
Confirming there’s a website in the works alongside decals and an official jersey “coming soon”, Top Blokes' focus will be on having more media presence and concentrating efforts beyond the pitch.
As RamS warns us this is a “part 1 of 2 announcement”, they are currently completely focused on aiming for the World Championship LAN event.
In the attempt to “be the BDS of this Split”, Top Blokes started on the right track with today’s performance in the EU Spring Regional #1 going 2-0 in the series with a 6-2 game record.
Finally, RamS promised that Top Blokes is a name that will be heard more often in the near future across the esports world.
The European organisation Top Blokes does have a ring to it.
