2017 saw the birth of the new esports brand VERITAS. With the VERITAS College Cup we brought Rocket League Esports to Germany in a way no one else did before. In 2018 we want to dive even further into esports and continue to change the industry. We have been working hard for the past few weeks and today we can make a great announcement and introduce you to the first VERITAS esports team.
Dreamhack Leipzig is coming up and it will feature the biggest Rocket League tournament in German history with a 50.000$ prize pool and many international stars of the professional scene. Of course VERITAS Entertainment is going to be a part of this event. We will send 3 professional Rocket League players to Dreamhack, who will compete under the name Team Veritas. Those players are:
Maik “Tigreee” Hoffmann is 17 years old, comes from Berlin and is currently Gfinity Elite Series Champion, a title he earned with his previous team Reason Gaming. Tigreee will be the captain of Team Veritas. You can follow Tigree on Twitter.
Tigreee says about this new opportunity: “With new team mates and the support of VERITAS Entertainment I am sure, that we can achieve more than we did before. It’s time to prove ourselves on the Dreamhack stage and I am really confident that we will surprise everybody there!“
Alex “Alex161” Ernst is 18 years old, comes from Hamburg and has been playing Rocket League since its release. In September he and his former team Epsilon made it to second place in the Gfinity Elite Series. After that success he was looking for another team. Now he will join Team Veritas for Dreamhack Leipzig. You can follow Alex161 on Twitter.
Nicolas “Reepex” Ammann is the third player to complete the roster of Team Veritas for Dreamhack Leipzig. The 17-year-old Swiss player from Bern is no stranger to the competetive Rocket League scene. Together with his Veritas team mate Alex161 he secured second place in the Gfinity Elite Series. You can follow Reepex on Twitter.

We at VERITAS Entertainment are excited to have the opportunity to work with three such talented pro-players and can’t wait for Team Veritas to play at Dreamhack Leipzig from January 26th to January 28th. For more infos about Dreamhack visit the Dreamhack website.
