Earlier today, the recently formed team known as Revival announced that they had signed DPS extraordinaire TviQ, who was let go from the Florida Mayhem at the beginning of June.
TviQ has become a household name in the world of professional Overwatch. He first made his skills known when he was signed to Rogue, winning in tournaments such as the APAC Premier 2016 and the 2016 ESL Atlantic Showdown at Gamescom. Rogue also made it to the quarterfinals of APEX Season 1 but fell short to Team EnVyUs. After APEX was over, Rogue indulged in a three-way trade with Misfits and Luminosity. TviQ and former professional player Reinforce were traded to Misfits for SoOn and Skipjack. Here, TviQ and the team went on to take 2nd place in Season 1 of European 2017 Contenders, falling short to the renowned Team Gigantti. TviQ has also competed for Team Sweden twice in the Overwatch World Cup, taking the bronze medal in both 2016 and 2017.
Shortly before the World Cup at Blizzcon 2017, Misfits announced they had acquired a slot for an Overwatch League team, and their players would be joining that team instead. That team was the Florida Mayhem. Unfortunately, the roster didn’t live up to the expectations of many people. Florida finished at 11th place in the inaugural season, and once the season ended, Florida announced the release of all but two of their players. TviQ and fellow DPS player Sayaplayer were kept on by the team. However, TviQ was released on the 2nd of June, and after a month of being without a team, he’s back into the competitive scene with Revival.
TviQ has shown his skills on heroes like Genji, Hanzo and Pharah many times before, so it will be interesting to see where he fits into the Revival lineup in Contenders.
