Orca

They barely made it through to the Regular Season. This all-Sabahan team sneaked a spot after finding themselves in the wildcard match. They showed composure and confidence, beating AoD 2-0.  It is worth mentioning that most of their team is composed of Mythic and Legend ranked players putting them way above the average player’s skill. However it is evident that they still struggled during the qualifier semi-final stages. Nevertheless, they have proven that they have what it takes to rub shoulders with the best teams from Malaysia and Singapore.
