At this tournament you can already judge the level, the average skillet is high here, top teams are playing. But for now, we are happy with our form," remarked Topson, during the post-match interview at Elite League.

However, he expressed confidence in the abilities of his teammates, noting their impressive results against formidable opponents in Elite League.

In an earlier interview, Topson had remarked that it was great having young people on the team due to their energy and passion, “It’s much easier to play with younger people like, feel like I’m here just to play the games. They’re doing most of the hard work and I’m just chilling.

Qualifying through the rigorous Swiss Stage and Round-Robin Group Stage, Tundra ended their journey in the tournament with a 7th-8th finish, taking home $30,000 USD in prize money.

It will also offer EPT points along with the standard prize money and Tundra will undoubtedly give its best shot to ensure it can win maximum EPT points to climb up the leaderboards. This will help it receive a direct invite for the highly anticipated, Riyadh Masters at Esports World Cup 2024.
