I am happy to announce the final two players for the FACEIT: Legends Cup. The last two spots will be taken by Richard "Noctis" Gansterer and Sander "Vo0" Kaasjager!
This means we have now announced all eight players for the tournament. They will be battling on Sunday 16th December, and the show will start at 05:30 CDT. We will announce the format to you soon.
Be sure to tune in on Sunday 16th December from 05:30 CDT onwards to follow the action together with our caster trio: Stuart "TosspoT" Saw, Daniel "ddk" Kapadia and Xavier "Zoot" Dhorne.
Noctis started his pro gaming career with Quake III, when he managed to come fifth at the ESWC Masters Paris in 2008. That year was followed by more high ranked placings in tournaments such as DreamHack Winter and GameGune.
It was Quake Live when Noctis really started to make a name. He managed to win several online events, and registered himself as one of the best in TDM, grabbing high placings in events such as the ESL Major Series and QuakeCon. Even though he has no real major duel titles to his name, he has always been a top contender for every event he participated in.
The Austrian's biggest achievement was a third place at the ESL Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge Dubai, and he also placed high in several DreamHack tournaments and ESL IEM Gamescom.
Sander Kaasjager is seen as one of the greatest Dutch players ever. Vo0 is the most explosive cpm players, got his shot at the big time when fnatic's CEO sold his car to send him to the USA to play Painkiller in the CPL. After this the boom of Painkiller followed, and Sander was at the right place, winning over $220,000 in 2005 alone. He was beaten in the Grand Final by Fatal1ty, but he still went into the books as the greatest Painkiller player ever.
When Painkiller got dropped for Quake IV, Vo0 made a short stint in the game but decided to drop very soon in the game's history.
He focused on his studies for some years, but made a successful comeback to gaming by representing Fnatic's World of Warcraft squad alongside 2GD and Ztrider.
Quake Live came out in 2008 and Vo0 was still playing, but not as active as during his Painkiller years. He still managed to get a seventh place at QuakeCon 2008 and a third and fourth place consequently at the Intel Extreme Masters American Championships.
