As the school year comes to a close and we all get closer to celebrating sunny days grinding ranked, Upsurge announces their summer leagues. Finally, something to watch after going on a losing streak! Starting on June 11 with the UML and ending August 16 with the UPL Championships, you can watch your favorite teams compete for the Summer League title all summer long. “Am I excited for the league? Hell yeah,” Triplelift - Team Imperia.
I had asked the team representatives to give me their thoughts on the league and possibly some information on who their main competition is. Medik from Imperia Red stated that “My team and I are very excited for the upcoming UML split, we'll definitely have some tough competition in Windstorm Gaming, Awaken Militia, and Ephorize” Even though Ephorize has been replaced by Hooked eSports, we hope that some exciting games come out of these few teams. Sync from Illinois Academy had also stated that “[We] have faced Dawn's main team and they were a force to be reckoned with,” which could possibly mean the teams have some friendly competition going on in the back round.
All of the teams are obviously exciting to get into the games this summer, and for good reason. After look through all of the responses, most if not all the teams believe that the Western Conference seems to more difficult teams. However, after a poll on our Twitter (@UpsurgeGG) more people thought that the Eastern Conference was more difficult. Even though it was almost 50/50, it’s very interesting to see how the community views the conferences and how the teams view them.
If you haven’t heard, this summer is also supposed to be the “most competitive season in Upsurge Leagues history,” as said by our Fearless Leader, Ninja (@SRGENinja)...Sorry for the shameless plugs I’ll stop, and no he didn’t force me to do that. Anyways, everyone at Upsurge is super excited to see these teams compete and have fun in the process!
Anyone that is looking to volunteer as a writer for the summer, please contact me on our Discord (ProtonFuser #1907), my Twitter (@ProtonFuser), or Upsurge’s Twitter (@UpsurgeGG).
