June 1, 2012 – Australia’s most successful eSports team, famous for their second place at DreamHack Winter 2011 and consistent high places in the global ‘Heroes of Newerth’ Rankings has confirmed a new sponsorship arrangement with leading peripheral manufacturer Tt eSPORTS.
We are proud to announce a new partnership with Tt eSPORTS. The Australian team previously known as “Frenetic Array” will now compete under the “Team Tt eSPORTS” banner. The partnership will allow the team to continue to compete to the highest professional standards in international competition.

Chris “Mayo” Smith – Tt eSPORTS Community and eSports Manager AUS/NZSince running one of Australia's Largest HoN competitions in 2011 (http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...-000-in-Prizes!) Tt eSPORTS in Australia/New Zealand has been interested and closely following the HoN scene.David “wyt`” Ashwell – Team Vice Captain
Picking up this team is the next step in us showing our support for the local and international HoN community and we look forward to doing many more things here in the near future.
I would like to personally thank Shinkz and Triumph117 for all the insight and information they provide into the workings into the HoN community, without people like this, your community would definitely be worse off.
With the transistion to our new Personal Sponsor, Tt eSPORTS, the team is very excited to the new opportunities it presents for joining such a renowned gaming brand. We are thankful to our previous organization Frenetic Array, and wish them the very best for their future.
We are looking forward to both our future and HoN's future we hope for a great relationship with Tt eSPORTS, that suits both a growing game and an ever improving team. We’d like to give a special thanks to both Mayo (from Tt eSports) and Shinkz (our manager) for having faith in the team and helping us towards our future goals.
The team will travel to Jonkoping, Sweden in less than two weeks where they will compete for a share of $60,000 USD in the DREAMHON event at DreamHack Summer 2012.
the new name would be a mouthful, but congrats TteS!
Team Tt or Team Tt eSPORTS or even Tt eSPORTS isn't that hard to say
In Football if a team makes it to the superbowl its the team that goes not the players. ex. The Cowboys win the playoffs and go to the superbowl. All the players on the team quit and try to make a new team, doesn't matter the Cowboys still go the Superbowl not necessarily the players.
Is it the players or the sponsorships invitation to go to DH?
If you want to build E-sports you have to reassure players and sponsorships. Stop Poaching.
And if I understand your analogy correctly you're saying that the Cowboys active roster quits in the span of two weeks between the NFC Conf. Finals and the Super Bowl which is just plain... dumb. Not only would this not work/never happen in a million years due to contractual obligations but to even imply that a team could just pick up and start over somewhere else is absolutely absurd. Finally, the NFL is a place of one singular team goal (the super bowl) while e-sports (HoN in this case) has a variety of other tournaments. Dreamhack isn't the Superbowl, E-Sports isn't American Football, and comparing an organization worth over a billion dollars (such as the Cowboys) to a sponsor of a HoN team is just silly.
Ontopic: Happy to see ex-Fray get such a good sponsor, best of luck to them.

Stay tuned for something inconsequential soon!
Congratulations. May I ask what happened with the fray sponsor?
Congratz, you guys deserve it! Cya @dh TTeS!
I find it weird that they are allowed to compete in DreamHack with the new team. It's the team that qualifies, not the players (in any other sport/game).
Good for the players though! Fray was my favorite team, now its TTHON
It's the players who played and won the spot, It's just like any other team who changes their name.
Let's say unsponsored team "Cars" won dreamhon, and were picked up by a sponsor "SK Gaming"
Is it weird for them to be allowed to compete in DreamHack? It's the same situation, Fray the organization had little to no involvement with actually winning the tournament. It's just a name
