After igniting Oceanic Nationals, FURY has taken a step further to push into APAC South by signing the former QConfirm roster. Their previous Australian-based side will compete under a new name for OCN 2022.
FURY stepped onto the Siege stage big time in 2021. Climbing through the Oceanic Challenger League (OCL), they had a crack at making the proverbial “big time” in ANZ come Relegations.
They managed to defy expectations to take down their rivals Overt — who were promoted in OCN Stage 3 — to claim a spot in the top flight of Oceanic Siege for 2022.
However, the organisation is pushing higher. Getting a taste of OCN experience isn’t enough, with FURY now moving onto APAC South by picking up the former QConfirm roster. The Thai team was left orgless in November 2021, but have found a home ahead of the upcoming Rainbow Six season.
The squad will remain unchanged from their 2022 starting line up of:
- Pasatron ‘Darkk’ Boonrubasb
- Surachat ‘Hajime’ Loednaweporn
- Chayapat ‘SpaceHead’ Boonyamanop
- Sillapakorn ‘Lycolis’ Dokmaikhaw
- Chayakorn ‘Producerboom’ Tsai
However, they have officially signed on substitute Chawit ‘Mopee’ Whangkijthum, who competed for the team in various domestic competitions near the end of 2021. Coach Apichat ‘DomeDominic’ Thuengngento will also be returning.
“After the departure of QConfirm and starting a new journey with FURY, we feel excited to be a part of this amazing organisation and it’s ignited our fighting spirit even more,” Lycolis told Snowball Esports.
The core of the FURY roster has stuck together through thick and thin since 2018. A mainstay of APAC Siege, the signing has lifted their confidence after a rocky last two years with seventh and fifth place finishes respectively.
“For me, being a part of FURY is the first step in a new direction outside of my comfort zone,” Lycolis said. “During our time on QConfirm we did everything on our own, but sometimes there are things beyond our reach and FURY is filling that gap for us.”
This sentiment was echoed by Producerboom: “Before all of this, I felt really burned out and overwhelmed because I didn’t really have a goal and the will to play on. Now with the new encouragement set, we will give it our all for our team and fans.”
The former FURY roster will still be competing in OCN under a different name.
APAC South Stage 1 is set to begin in the coming weeks, with FURY lining up alongside ANZ sides Chiefs, Knights, and Wildcard in the league.
