KIX now owns one of the mosteye-catching international lineups. In the new season, KIX with five players from threecountries, is ready to show their power in the upcoming Special Season of 2020 CRL East.
Nova Esports, the most renowned CRL team in China with the most FIVE champion trophies in hand including 2018 World Championship, Nova hasn’t made much adjustment to the lineup. They have kept two core players Lciop and Little Chen. The only new addition is a female player Aurora. It seems the roster has minimum change, but Nova’s pursuit for championship shall never be underestimated. We believe Nova would be eager to take back the championship after their loss in Los Angeles.
PONOS, one of the best CRL teams in Asia, has upgraded their roster by keeping its original three core members and absorbing two new strong players KK and Yakitori from GameWith. In the coming new season of 2020 CRL East, PONOS, two-times champion of CRL Asia, will they reclaim their glory? Let’s wait and see!

South Korean veteran team Timing has also chosen a team-building strategy focusing on young genius. While keeping Nuri, they have also signed two potential talentsSado and Greed, plus the mysterious CRL newbie Haruki. The average player age for Timing is 18. Let’s expect how Team Timing would perform in the new season.
