French Toast Mafia: A Team With Serious Potential
In recent weeks, things have been heating up for this French Toast Mafia team. Other than having one of the coolest names in the scene, this team consisting of Rammyy, Gabriel, Cloud and Musa have turned many heads with their recent performance in the Legendary Cups.
They recently won last Sunday's Legendary Cup, which consisted of notable teams such as Team eLevate and New Era, which is ran by Cpt Anarchy, who was the founder and former Captain of French Toast Mafia. With French Toast Mafia performing so well recently, many including myself are wondering how this team would match up against some of the top teams in the Pro League. Considering how Team Liquid is 0-4 in the standings, what if Liquid was replaced with French Toast Mafia? Would they have a bigger impact on the Pro League?
French Toast Mafia is not necessarily a new team. They started competing in the Online Qualifiers to attempt to get in the Pro League and for the most part, they looked solid. Aside from a few mistakes here and there, FTM looked poised to take a spot in the Pro League.
Although they did well in the first Open Qualifier, earning them a spot in the Last Chance Qualifier, this team would underperform in the LSQ with a top-six placing, ending their hopes of making it in the Pro League. After the LSQ, 75 percent of the team consisting of Cpt Anarchy, Squalleye and V t3ct9 would leave to form a new team by the name of New Era. This would leave Rammyy in a tough position, but instead of joining a new team as well, he would keep the name alive by picking up Gabriel, Cloud and Musa.
So far, this team has been looking very good in the Open and Legendary cups, which leads me to believe that this team is once again poised to make it into the Pro League. If I had to compare them to Team Liquid, I honestly believe that FTM has much more potential than Liquid does. While Liquid is slowly declining in performance, FTM is consistently improving and this growth does not look to be stopping anytime soon.
What do you think about French Toast Mafia’s recent performance? Do you think that they could potentially be better than Team Liquid? Let me know in the comments section below.
