Peppe gets close to the Istanbul dream: TOP 24 at the eChampions League Playoffs
Ferraro_Peppe ends his London eChampions League adventure in the top 24, the first high-level event for the 17-year-old little prodigy.
Arriving in London for the knockout stage of the eChampions League, Peppe confirms himself as both the youngest Italian and player overall to participate in a tournament of this caliber. Member of Europe’s 32 best, the black-and-green player was escorted by coach Efy to secure the qualification for the Istanbul Finals, to be played live in the same week as the real Champions League final.
The Reply Totem home talent, back in London from February’s qualification, ended the first day with a score of 1 victory and 1 defeat. Unfortunately, the journey was interrupted on Sunday, where a decisive defeat prevented Peppe from continuing in this eChampions League, finishing with a final Top 24 Result.
The focus is now shifted on the next competitive event, where Peppe, together with his teammates Santill1 and Flokox, will compete against the European elite in the eClub World Cup playoffs.
Fabio Cucciari, CEO and co-founder of Reply Totem, declared: “Even though the final placement could not be representative of an actual success, being able to bring Peppe to play tournaments of this level is a victory for us in terms of growth and foresight. Knowing that a very young boy like him is part of the 24 best players in Europe is the push needed to face the next challenges with a different mindset. We are now ready for the eClub 2v2 playoffs, where Peppe will be able to demonstrate that he treasured such an experience, growing stronger as a player both mentally and in-game.
