We would like to announce our 2019 Gravitas Academy roster which will compete in the Oceanic Challenger Series. We put together a team who are young and hungry. General Manager Juves spoke with the players and all of them have the ambition to win the OCS as well as play in the OPL. We will do our best to facilitate our players growth over the split and ensure we provide them with the best possible environment to achieve those goals.
Our OPL top laner Pabu congratulated Yu ‘GuaPi’ Yue on his accomplishment and also mentioned he had some serious mechanics from his late night soloq ventures.
Congratulations to ‘GuaPi’ for being selected for the Gravitas Academy. #GravitasGlory pic.twitter.com/CUpeQ8gl8Q

With Raaz ‘Whynotbefriends’ Alfassi Berman being the youngest player on our roster Praelus had some encouraging words for him and he even expects big things coming into his first competitive split. Just for confirmation this really is Praelus’ excited face and voice.
Happy for @whynotbefriends for being selected in the @GravitasOCE Academy in OCS starting May 2, I will be expecting big things from him.#GravitasGlory pic.twitter.com/sPDuVn5nBJ

Haeri is keen to see Bailey ‘Hotchelli’ McDonald’s development over the split because last split Haeri was battling it out in the OCS and one year later he is in the OPL.
Super keen to have @Hotchelli on board in the @GravitasOCE Academy, congratulations!#GravitasGlory pic.twitter.com/JYQFTGyQtT

Another player who impressed Raid in soloq is Yanshun ‘retribution’ Chi. Raid was quick to mention retribution as someone with good mechanics so he’s excited to see how he develops over the year. If you’re on twitter follow @retributioncys since his tag was missed.
I am pleased to welcome retribution to the @GravitasOCE Academy, I expect big things from him.#GravitasGlory pic.twitter.com/Iewlv6X5SA

Decoy is rather supportive of our final player, probably because they are both from New Zealand and the player is Andy ’emelg’ Chen. Decoy is looking to take emelg under his wing and teach him a thing or two with his years of experience.
@emelg__ will be the @GravitasOCE Academy support for 2019 and I can’t wait to see his progress throughout the year.#GravitasGlory pic.twitter.com/lHlnXQCbbe
