With the departure of their previous Danish squad last month to the French sponsorship of3DMAX, the North American organisation Gamer University has wasted no time in picking up a new squad.
The former Peruvian team of Artyk Gaming will from now onwards bear the name of Gamer University, and while they may be unheard of on the international stage, they are participating in the current season of The Defense, and the organisation is confident that they have recruited a team with the potential to make them "proud in the end."
Team captains Ricardo 'Mstco' Román and Arturo 'Nova' Marruffo issued a joint statement on their new sponsorship:
We’re very pleased to represent Gamer University in the Dota 2 scene and excited to prove ourselves of this sponsorship. Getting sponsored is new to us all, but we’re looking forward to up the amount of practice over the summer and to see how far we can go. The main reason for teaming up with GU is to get recognized among the top teams to improve our practice. We aim to progress in various tournaments over the summer and hope that GU can aid us on the way.”
Furthermore, Gamer University owner Brandon 'FireFlash' Ferris said:
I have been talking with Arytk Gaming for the last couple of weeks and spoke to a few teams from around the community and I feel that no team better deserves this sponsorship then Artyk Gaming. They have the heart and drive and effort to win championships if given the chance. I am proud to announce this sponsorship and I look forward to working with the team for what hopes to be a long time deal.”
