Nouns was one of the surprise teams in Valve’s final DPC season. They began their triumphant run towards the end of the 2023 season by qualifying for the Bali Major.
The team’s success in Indonesia paved the way for them to compete in the TI12 Regional Qualifier. Nouns continued their hot streak, beating out all the teams in North America to qualify for The International 2023.
From there, the team went on to upset Tundra Esports, one of the favorites at TI12, to enter the upper bracket.
However, they lost to Azure Ray and Gaimin Gladiators, which resulted in finishing top eight — the highest of any NA organization.
The addition of Fly is the beginning of noun’s rebuilding process as they look to put together a competitive roster that will compete against the top teams in North America.
Fly will make his debut with his new NA squad at ESL Kuala Lumpur’s North America closed qualifier on November 16.
