Tomorrow on Saturday 13th February, Viperio play their first rematch of the UKEL regular season, with a best of one series against LDN UTD.
Unlike most teams, LDN UTD have kept 100% of their starting line-up from the previous season. In comparison, while Viperio have retained 4 players from the last split (Zooky, JonnyREcco, Kazz & Penta), only JonnyREcco and Kazz have made this season’s starting roster.
Going of performance so far in Season 4, the move may not have paid off, as new teams such as Viperio, Hyve have been able to find their feet after a rocky start. The rematch against Viperio will be a real test to see if LDN UTD really are a contending team this season.
Regular season record: 5W-2L.
