At the Intercontinental Clash, Mindfreak (formerly known as Nomia) defeated Latin America’s Encore e-Sports on their home turf in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The Aussie contingent’s hard earned victory ensured their spot at the upcoming Mid-Season Brawl in Sweden. With $250,000 USD in prize money up for grabs along with international bragging rights, you can expect nothing less than the highest level of play. Mindfreak will face off against the 11 other qualified teams in the group stage in Stockholm with the winners moving onto the playoffs at DreamHack Summer in Jönköping.
Mindfreak return to the Mid-Season Brawl after a tumultuous year that saw their now disbanded rivals Dark Sided, take their spot at the HGC Finals. Refusing to stay down, Mindfreak won the ANZ Premier division, defeated Latin America’s finest and earned their spot at the big show yet again.
While their sleep schedules may be disrupted from hours of travel to Rio and now back up to Sweden—Mindfreak’s Fat94 and company are heading into the Brawl to change the narrative around regions outside of the big four.
The Brawl will have a cavalcade of HGC’s renowned international commentators including New Zealand’s own, Andre ‘Skimmy’ Allchin, who has been following and casting Mindfreak’s journey through the ANZ premier league this past season.
