French organisation, NoWeaver, have recently announced via their social platforms that they will be competing in the 2020 Australian Overwatch Contenders - NoWeaver have said in a statement to us that this comes after purchasing a slot from a former team in the league, Melbourne Mavericks.
NoWeaver is an esports organisation based out of France - over the course of the past few months they have established teams in titles such as Apex Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite and more - with the majority of these rosters being filled by French players.
Given that NoWeaver was only established at the end of 2018, little information is public about the organisation itself; other than what is on their social media channels. We reached out to NoWeaver to gain some more insight into their decision behind purchasing a slot in the Overwatch Contenders here in Australia and what their plans are moving forward.
Kevin Eyimeu, President of NoWeaver, explained NoWeaver’s move to the Australian Contenders in a brief statement by saying “Cherhorowitz, Head of Staff at NoWeaver, had a contact within Contenders Australia that decided to sell their slot to us - which gave us the opportunity to propel ourselves into the world of Contenders.”
When asked if they plan on investing in other Australian titles, Kevin went on to state “For now, we will be focusing on this team alone. Although we haven’t excluded the idea of developing teams in other Australian titles.”
Kevin then went on to speak about recruitment by saying “we will be setting up recruitment processes like any new teams and select the six most interesting players from there.”
NoWeaver have stated on their social channels that more information will be released to the public in the coming days around recruitment.
Minimal information is currently public about the next season of Overwatch Contenders for Australia, but season one is expected to kick off early next year - we will be sure to release information around the league once it is public.
