William “Blitz” Lee has formed a new team, Zephyr, followign the disbandment of the Korean-based For Our Utopia.
That team ended recently; it had both Dota 2 and StarCraft II teams.
Lee’s new team consists of Alaan “SexyBamboe” Faraj, Steven “Eosin” Cheng, Corey “Corey” Wright, and Kevin “Purge” Godec.
Lee, a streamer on twitch.tv who moved to Korea, told onGamers that she has been spending most of her time setting up the team and getting the house ready, and negotiating with sponsors.
About the break-up of For Our Utopia, Lee said: “To be honest after our loss, I went out drinking with my teammates and was kind of sad but I was more sad at my own play. I felt like if I had done more with drafting / played a more mobile hero I could have done more, but I was limited by Demon’s great play and the fact that I was afraid of messing up or making an error in front of people on the stream. Demon on the other hand, had none of this, and constantly went for it and played aggressively enabling his team to win.
“After the events of Febby leaving, I was thinking of what to do with my future, and realized that setting up my own team would be the best situation for me but things like financials / housing held me back, but thanks to Purge it was made possible.”
The new team has a dedicated gaming house, which they plan to show off in a video at some point. They’re still looking for sponsors.
As far as roles in the new team, “I will handle mid, Purge will play the jungle, Eosin will play the hard support, Bamboe offlane, and Corey carry,” said Lee.
The team is looking to enter season 3 of NSL (Nexon Sponsorship League) as the first tournament they play in.
The Korean scene gives the new team the opportunity to get up top quickly, according to Allan “SexyBamboe” Faraj.
“Since it’s still a growing scene and there aren’t as many good teams its not that hard to join the top teams straight from the bat,” he said. “While if you would do the same thing in the westerns scene. It would be 10 times harder to start getting noticed and considered one of the top dogs in the same amount of time and effort.”
