Predator MGMS Grand Finals Team Profile: Astra Infinite


In part two of our eight-part series, that will be highlighting the Predator MGMS grand finals participants (four in Black Ops 3 and four in CS:GO), we check-in with Astra Infinite's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 team.  

The Astra Infinite team came into the competitive year as the favorites to take the title, after doing exactly that the year before. They team managed to start off their season off on a positive note when they beat Hi5 eSports team in the grand finals of the first Predator MGMS qualifiers. Despite a great start to the season, securing the number one seed in the Predator MGMS Grand Finals, the team has faced their fair share of problems after the first qualifier. 

Astra Infinite found themselves with their worst performance in the past year and a half at EGE 2016. The team had undergone some roster changes, losing two of their key members in quick succession before the event. The once top team in South Africa - Astra Infinite went into the tournament with a new squad and failed to place within the top four.  

The result of the poor performance caused the squad to reevaluate their options and consolidate their squad for the Predator MGMS Grand Finals:
