After a gruelling tournament and a rough start at the middle of the pack the Flash Wolves worked their way through every series showing a new strength to come out on top and take the LMS 1 st seed to the World Championship. Heading into Worlds they could reflect a similar FW to their 2015 performances but after facing down their challenges they could rise and be a new formidable team, they’ve put in a lot of time and effort to get this far and there’s no way they’re ready to stop in the Group Stage.
