Team Summary 

With a bright color scheme and charismatic roster, the Hangzhou Spark are ready to win and gain fans at the same time. With a roster built mainly from former Contenders players on X6 Gaming and Seven, they come with built-in team cohesion. Support iDK and DPS GodsB come with rave reviews from former teams. While the majority of the roster is South Korean, the two Chinese players on the roster are, to put it plainly, superstars. Team China’s clutch DPS Krystal and main tank Guxue bring hometown hype for the team.
