This means it's ppd's comeback at the German ESL One event. He attended ESL One Frankfurt 2014 and ESL One Frankfurt 2015 with Evil Geniuses. He missed the third edition in the German metropol because EG didn't try to qualify. In 2017, ppd didn't make it through the qualifier with The Dire before the team started playing for OpTic Gaming.
Meanwhile, Marcus 'Ace' Hoelgaard and Adrian 'Fata' Trinks get the chance to play against their old team. Since Fata is German, NiP can be sure to enjoy the homecrowd advantage in Hamburg. The midlaner attended every German ESL One so far: First he played for Mousesports*, then Cloud9* and afterwards for Team Liquid and Team Secret.
His biggest success in Germany was reaching the Grand Finals with Secret last year where they lost 0-2 against Virtus.pro.
Can Fata finally win his first ESL One in Germany?
