Nicky Iovene — better known throughout the Killer Instinct competitive circuit as Nicky — certainly proved his skills are a force to be reckoned with at Combo Breaker last weekend. And although his tournament finish ended with a runner-up spot, you can count on seeing him back in the Grand Finals seat in the immediate future. Only this time, he'll be representing a new esports banner on his back.
Yes, Circa Esports didn't waste any time expanding its ranks with one of Killer Instinct's talented players on the rise. Nicky has achieved significant tournament results throughout the season, including two back-to-back victories in the Killer Instinct Pro League.
"I am honored to be a part of such a highly regarded esports team," Nicky tells PVP Live. He's eagerly looking forward to CEO this year, as it's the next destination in the road to Killer Instinct World Cup. He adds that his new sponsorship will give him the ability to participate in most, if not all, World Cup qualifiers across the nation.
Circa Esports now has a well-rounded team of formidable players, including LPN, SuicuneMaster, Anakin, and Destroyer respectively representing Street Fighter, Pokkén Tournament, Tekken 7, and Mortal Kombat XL.
