Nathan “Fel Peon U” Basser has taken home the Red Bull Solo Q Oceanic Regionals crown, earning the chance to represent the region in the World Finals. He will also get the chance to train with the Chiefs in the lead-up to the international event.
While many were rooting for the Silver 2 Wukong OTP that made waves on Reddit in the Red Bull Solo Q Oceania Regionals, a different victor was crowned.
Diamond 3 solo queue star Fel Peon U has earned the chance to represent Australia at the Solo Q World Finals after winning the regional qualifier.
Fel Peon U rose to the top of 450 entrants, not losing a single best-of-three series on his way to the Regional Final. In the final, he managed to sweep the runner-up, Joel “Randomact” Skewes, in his cleanest performance of the tournament.
With the World Finals not set to be held until later this year, Fel Peon U will have the chance to hone his skills locally, with a bit of help.
The National Champion will have one of Oceania’s best League teams, the Chiefs, by his side on his way to the World Finals. He will receive fortnightly coaching sessions with coach Chris “SeeEl” Lee, as well as a chance to train with one of the starting roster.
It’s all in preparation to face off against National Finalists from over 35 participating countries at the World Finals, with a chance to go to All-Star 2020 at the end of it.
The Red Bull Solo Q World Finals will be hosted in Germany later this year. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
