Project Eversio at the EDC Wildcard Event
Taking a quick look at their first opponent in the event, we can conclude that it won’t be an easy start to it all. Despite such a dominant performance over the course of the 3 past Malta National League events, the team hasn’t managed to make much damage when it comes to international competition. That being said, Project Eversio have always been a team to prove everyone wrong, and they will try to do just that again Natus Vincere’s Junior squad.
