Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The Melbourne Avant are one of two Gfinity Elite Series based in the city of Melbourne. They were one of the two first teams announced for the competition, and are owned by Avant Garde Gaming.
Avant will, like four of the six Elite Series teams, import some of their existing esports rosters into their sides (CS:GO and Rocket League). They will, no doubt, enjoy a healthy rival with their now-crosstown rivals Melbourne Order.
Season one showed a consistency across games for Avant. Equal third in Street Fighter and CS:GO and second in Rocket League are not results to be taken lightly. A win over title heavyweights Sydney Cheifs in Rocket League is another highlight to add to the resume.
Players to watch include international sensation BurnoutFighter along with local talent Noobster and Ju1ces.
