Another day another team reveal. This time it’s the Chengdu Hunters.
As the base of operations for Panda populations in China I was convinced they were going to be the Pandas but at least they have a grumpy looking Panda in the logo.
With a bold yellow colour scheme and the tagline — #LetsGoHunt — Chengdu are serious business when it comes to esports.
Being partially operated by RNG, one of the most well-known and successful Chinese esports orgaznisations, the Hunters are shooting or the top.
With no information on their player roster yet and a still to be announced Hangzhou side, there is speculation that silkthread of LA Gladiators fame will be heading up the Hunters. A few tweets with no context other than he’s returning to China for the first time in six years and a retweet of the team’s logo is all the information we have right now.
It’s not much to go on, but it’s a hint that silkthread may be on the Chengdu Hunters’ roster.
In any case, I’m looking forward to seeing who’s on the team.
