Despite multiple scandals and setbacks during the inaugural season, the Boston Uprising managed to rally in the latter half to maintain a top 6 finish. Working within a multilingual environment and leaning on the talents of individual players were keys to the Uprising’s success. Striker’s stellar Tracer play and NotE’s flex tank skills helped support the team. With multiple pickups for Season 2, including Team United Kingdom’s Fusions and New Zealand DPS Colourhex, the Uprising are looking to change their look and keep up their success.
