Team SoloMid has announced its roster, with Carter ‘carta’ Bjorklund, Eric ‘ogtriv’ Geel, Mark ‘Dropped’ Thees, Garret ‘geesh’ Shearer, and Jacob ‘ShellShock’ Hash joining the fray. Some of the players signed up for the team have already competed together during the DreamHack Winter 2017.

Overall, H1Z1 is planning to pit 15 teams (75 players in total) against each other for its inaugural season, with 13 names already revealed. The H1Z1 Pro League will help boost the popularity of battle royale games as a viable eSports title.
Team SoloMid has also recently branched into another battle royale game. SoloMid is actively fielding a team for the Clash Royale League, which offers $1 million in cash prizes. Cloud9 is also fielding teams in both competitions.
The addition of the Cloud9 roster to the H1Z1 Pro League was announced at the same time as that of Team SoloMid’s. The team is fielding Adrien ‘Aydren’ Morales, Marco ‘Flowers’ Soteo, Justin ‘Chappie’ Andrews, Joseph ‘Frexs’ Sanchez, Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen.
