Tempra Esports Acquires IziDream Roster

The newly promoted French lineup, previously playing for IziDream, has joined the brand new Italian organisation of Tempra Esports.

The brand new Milan-based organisation of Tempra Esports will be joining the European Rainbow Six scene with the signing of the fully French ex-IziDream lineup. The organisation is primarily owned by "Dive Esports", who work as the managers of the Samsung Morning Stars organisation that currently has a team in third place in the PG Italian Nationals. 

Dive Esports has now stepped out from behind the SMS organisation to run their own organisation in Tempra, aiming to "promote Italian esports and its values in the world through participation in top-level international tournaments". Their first acquisition to do this is the ex-IziDream roster, following its Season 11 Challenger League victory and promotion to the upcoming European League (EUL).

Of its players, Valentin "Voy" Cheron is certainly the most experienced, who made his debut on ExoD Esport, but only found his way to Pro and Challenger League-level competition in Season 4, alongside Chaoxys. Soon after, the team was able to re-qualify for the Pro League after winning Season 4 of the Challenger League and finished joint-fifth in the Pro League in Seasons 5 and 6 -- the latter under its new organisation, ARES.

Close behind in experience is Christophe "Chaoxys" Soares, who made his debut four months after Voy. He was immediately able to participate in Season 3 of the Pro League, before being joined by Voy in Season 4 and sticking with him until the end of 2017.

The two then parted ways, with Voy having the more illustrious time apart. Participating in the Six Invitational 2018 with Team Vitality, he then went on to play in Season 7 of the Pro League, DreamHack Austin 2018, DreamHack Valencia 2018, and the Six Major Paris -- the latter four after Mock-it Esports' signing of the Vitality roster.

The core of this roster, comprising Chaoxys, Nicolas "P4" Rimbaud, and Dylan "Dirza" Brigitte first came together on DeathroW for the Gamers Assembly 2019 tournament. There, the team finished joint-fifth overall, beating out every team, including Voy's XTreme Video Esport, except the far more experienced teams of LeStream Esport, Supremacy, Team Vitality, and Trust Gaming.

The IziDream organisation first made its debut during the 6 French League 2019, signing the former Bastille Legacy roster known as OrgSeek. Finishing fourth during the online season, IziDream then finished third at it first offline tournament at the 6 French League 2019 Finals. Furthermore, a reasonably deep run in the Six Invitational 2020 European qualifier saw them finish joint-fifth, losing to Chaos Esports after having defeated the now-Virtus.pro roster.

Following Voy's journey on DolphinStars and Samsung Morning Stars, he was reunited with Chaoxys to form the IziDream roster set to take on the Challenger League qualifiers. Successful in that respect, the team was on a path pointed straight up to the Pro League.

On their way to a 32-point season, complete with ten wins, two draws, and two losses, IziDream also participated in the 6 Open Cup 2020, finishing a very close second to PENTA thanks to a 15th-round, 7-8 loss on the decider map.

Their exploits thus mean that the roster has, in some form, secured the following results:

  • Core-roster - EU Challenger League Season 11 victors, 6 French League 2019 semi-finalists, 6 Open Cup 2020 runners-up, and Gamers Assembly 2019 quarter-finalists
  • Voy - EU Challenger League Season 4 victor, Pro League player for Seasons 5-8, runner-up at PG Nationals Winter 2019 and group stages at the 2018 Six Invitational, the Paris Major, DreamHack Austin 2018, and DreamHack Valencia 2018
  • Chaoxys - EU Challenger League Season 4 victor, Pro League player for Seasons 3-6, and fourth place at Gamers Assembly 2018
  • P4 - 6Cup 2018 quarter-finalist
  • Shiinka - Joint-fifth at Gamers Assembly 2018 and joint-ninth at DreamHack Valencia 2019

Now, the following players will debut under their new organisation in eight days time in the 2020 6 French League before Stage One of the 2020 EU League kicks off four days later: 

 Christophe "Chaoxys" Soares
 Dylan "Dirza" Brigitte
 Valentin "Voy" Cheron
 Axel "Shiinka" Freisberg
 Nicolas "P4" Rimbaud
