A tweet from NoChance today signaled a need for a sponsor for their bootcamp prior to the Starladder Berlin Minor.
The Mikail "Maikelele" Bill-led team NoChance is currently looking for a bootcamp sponsor in order to prepare for the upcoming StarLadder Berlin European Minor. NoChance is additionally still looking for an organization.
So far we haven't been able to find an organisation and are therefore looking for a sponsorship for a bootcamp before the minors, More details in DM.#WEHAVENOCHANCEFINDINGORG

The tweet also contains the hashtag #WEHAVENOCHANCEFINDINGORG, which shows that the team is clearly frustrated with the difficulties in finding an organization. NoChance recently placed 5th-8th at the European Closed Minor Qualifier for 2019’s second Counterstrike Major of the year, held in Berlin. The team also finished in a similar spot at the recent GG.Bet Cologne Invitational. Since their inception in 2019, NoChance has struggled in Tier 1 and 2 tournaments. That said, a streak of wins in Tier 3 tournaments early in the year means that there's some hope for the international team.
The European Minor will start on July 17th. In addition to NoChance, the Minor will feature Cr4zy, Fnatic, Mousesports, North, Team Ancient, Sprout, and BIG Clan. StarLadder will host the Minor in Berlin in following with Valve's rule change announced earlier this year.
As of now, the NoChance roster is as follows:
- Mikail “Maikelele” Bill
- Kevin “kRYSTAL” Amend
- Jesse “zehN” Linjala
- Martin “STYKO” Styk (Stand-in)
- Thomas “Thomas” Utting
- Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg (coach)
