EQUAL ESPORTS TALENT SAYNA MAKES HISTORY AGAIN
On 09 February 2023, Mareike "Sayna" Burg made history for the first time when she became the first women to compete in Division 1 of the Prime League. Now, on 01 April 2023, she could make history again. Together with her team, the Unicorns of Love Sexy Edition, she won the Spring Split of the Prime League in a thrilling final against SK Gaming!
SAYNA AT THE UNICORNS OF LOVE
Before the start of the Spring Split, Sayna was officially introduced as the Bot Lane Substitute for the reigning Prime League Champions. On Matchday 7, Mareike became the first woman in Prime League history to make her debut in Division 1. Unfortunately, the Unicorns of Love lost the match against Eintracht Frankfurt. Only 13 days later, the next milestone in Mareike's career followed: In her second appearance for UOL, she celebrated her first victory in Division 1 against E WIE EINFACH ESPORTS. Already in the following week, another match against Schalke 04 Esports followed.
PLAYOFFS AND THE TITLE WIN
The Unicorns of Love finished the regular season in 1st place. This put them directly in the Upper Bracket finals. There they won 3:1 against SK Gaming and entered the grand final. Because SK Gaming beat BIG in the lower bracket final, SK Gaming and the Unicorns of Love met again on 1 April. In a strong series, the Unicorns won 3-2 and defended their Prime League title. Sayna did not play in the Upper Bracket Final or the Grand Final.
Congratulations on your first major title win, Sayna!
