RatedHugo ready for eMLS League Series Two in Dallas, Texas

Atlanta United’s RatedHugo set to take on eMLS League Series Two this Sunday, February 17 at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Frisco, Texas. The final series in the eMLS regular season leading up to eMLS Cup on March 30, 2019.

During the League Series Two, every team will compete against each member of their respective conferences. At the end of 11 rounds, the four players from each conference with the most points will advance to a single elimination playoff. The point system is 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss.

“Looking forward to the League Series Two at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Dallas on Sunday. Leading up to the event I have been preparing by playing other top100 players. I hoping things click Sunday and I have a better performance. During eMLS League Series one I learned how different the gameplay is and I incorporated that into my gameplay. I feel good about the second series and getting more points for the eMLS Cup”.

RatedHugo was selected to join Atlanta United following a number of standout performances in various FIFA tournaments in the city. He first hit the club’s radar after reaching the finals and the semifinals in the two qualifiers for the eMLS All-Star Challenge held in Atlanta prior to the 2018 All-Star Game. Hugo solidified his spot as Atlanta’s first esports competitor with a strong showing during MLS’s FIFA 19 launch event in Atlanta in September, which provided a scouting opportunity for Atlanta United to find its first eMLS representative. RatedHugo recently represented Atlanta United at the eMLS Coca Cola Invitational versus Portland Timbers Rctid_Thiago during MLS Cup, coming out on top in a best out of 3 competition to raise Atlanta United’s first ever gaming trophy.
