The competition at the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series Regional Final in Paris will be fierce in both the PS4 and Xbox One Divisions. With $20,000 USD on the line along with four tickets to the Ultimate Team Championship in Berlin, you can be sure that all the competitors will bring their A games to the City of Lights.
There are plenty of high-profile players to watch for, including several professionals signed by some of the biggest teams in the world. As we look towards Paris, here are five we think are especially intriguing in the Xbox One division.
August “Agge” Rosenmeier
Agge has come a long way since competing in his first tournament back in 2010, the Nordic FIWC. Since then he's racked up an impressive resume, including wins at DreamHack and FIWC, not to mention signing with French giants Paris Saint-Germain F.C. in October of 2016. Agge's goal for 2017 is clear: winning the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series.
Harry “Hashtag Harry” Hesketh
Hashtag Harry made his mark in the Spencer FC Game Academy 2016 final, where he beat Kieran Brown and became the first member of Hashtag United. Seven months later, Hashtag Harry is one of the favourites in a stacked Xbox One division, and will look to get 2017 off to a promising start at the Paris Regional Final.
Tassal “Hashtag Tass” Rushan
It's a bit strange calling a player in their early 20s a veteran of the scene, but that‘s exactly what Hashtag Tass is. As part of the Hashtag United team, Hashtag Tass is one of the big guns on a stacked side. He came in second on the FIFA November leaderboard, trailing Epsilon Gorilla by just three wins. Hashtag Tass completed his first weekend league in the New Year with 40 wins, showing that he's ready to shine in 2017.
Spencer “Gorilla” Ealing
39, 39, 38, 35, 39, 39, 40, 40, 39, 39, 37, 38, and 39. That's the number of wins Gorilla has racked up in weekend league competition since October, a stunning run that shows how he can dominate the competition. This is an unpredictable game full of unpredictable moments, but it's clear Gorilla is a player to be feared.
Chevrey “Vitality ROCKyy” Corentin
Vitality has emerged as an EA SPORTS FIFA heavyweight team in the eSports scene and Vitality ROCKyy is a big reason why. He's the reigning French e-championship title holder and a two-time French champion, for FIFA 16 and FIFA 17. Vitality ROCKyy has already registered a 40/40 in Weekend League play to start the New Year, indicating he's ready to make a splash at the Ultimate Team Championship series.
