Kinguin is the final invite to Copenhagen Games 2018

Team Kinguin is the fourth and last invited team to Copenhagen Games 2018. This will be the first LAN event for the Polish squad.

Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas, who recently joined Kinguin, won the 2015 edition with his former team, Virtus.pro. He released a statement recalling the old victory and the goals of the team:

I’m very happy that we will be able to attend Copenhagen Games with Team Kinguin. I feel like it is great chance to show the talent that the guys have and push it all the way.

We are a very young team, but last time I attended Copenhagen Games I managed to win it, so our aim is clear! I can’t wait to step into the LAN game once again! Be sure to tune in, this Pinguin is planning to fly high!
— Taz

The team is excited for this grand debut. The players know they will face some really strong squads during the event, but they will prepare to perform at their best and prove their worth in front of the audience.

We know how passionate fans from Scandinavia can be and we cannot wait to meet you all! This will be an exciting event and we will have a few goodies to giveaway at the event too.
— Giovanni Varriale - COO of Team Kinguin
