Spirit has announced their entry into female CS with a roster that’s equally promising and different for the org.

They are the latest big org to join the ESL Impact league, by bringing in the promising ex-MVP roster. But why now? Season 3 has already started.

Well, we read the HLTV interview, and apparently,  Spirit wanted to join Impact a year ago but it never worked out. So to make up for lost time, they’ve been monitoring female CS for a few months and decided picking up the MVP roster was the right call vs. build themselves.

You’re probably thinking “MVP must be the next CIS wonders if a CIS org like Spirit signed them”. Wrong. Weirdly, the team they signed is actually an EU mix.

They might not be from CIS but could still be the next wonders: Just a few days ago they showed some teeth against reigning champions Nigma Galaxy and one day later they managed to take a map off Astralis fe. Solid debut and no wonder Spirit saw potential.

Spirit isn’t alone in its investment in Impact. We’ve seen several top organizations join the League recently and G2 even returned despite abandoning female CS once before. ESL has shown the difference infrastructure can make to building a scene. With Spirit joining, 11 out of 12 EU Impact teams are signed to major orgs.

The more orgs that sign on womens teams, the more money comes into play. And being able to pay players means they have time to practice and put in the scrim work without worrying about finances. This means more players are able to commit to the game which keeps the player pool healthy and increases the skill level.

We for one are excited. It’s raised our Spirits (not sorry).

Spirit FE consists of:
