As a reminder, their female players have risen to the top of the world rankings. at the Game Changers Championshiptaking second place after a close match against G2 Gozen.
If they stay on top again this year, the men's roster was not as successful in the NA Challengers and finished with rather mixed results. Shopyfy is not abandoning competition on this circuit... quite the contrary. Today, the American organisation begins a new chapter in its history.

Seasonal results are not the only reason for this attraction... After the Challengers ended, some Moist members - brawks and flyuh - took part in various competitions with Shopify players - moose, mada and v1c, under the Lobster Fishers banner. And the least we can say is that they have made a real impact. They won no fewer than 40 matches in 42 games between June and the end of August. Enough to motivate Shopify even more!
