We love learning more about the Killer Queen Black teams of Indy Gaming League. This week, we’re featuring Fall Circuit’s Tier 3 West Champions, SaaS – Snail as a Service. While SaaS took the title, we’re also here to celebrate all the T3W players and shoutout Blobby, Garbage Snail Kids, and I Make Honey Moves, on some great battles this circuit too!
Meet SaaS – Snail as a Service
You must work in technology, right? SaaS – Snail as a Service team members, Shenanigans, higa, femi, swordfish_duke, dreamconch, and hai, have all worked together, or currently do, at Sumo Logic. You guessed it, Sumo Logic is a Software as a Service company and was the inspiration for the team’s name. And how about that clever logo?
All SaaS players were pre-pandemic Killer Queen arcade players, playing almost daily at their office. 5 of the 6 have participated in at least one KQA tournament. The 6th was going to participate in his first in 2020, but you guessed it – Get Drunk Clash 5 was put on a pandemic hold.
More fun SaaS facts from team member, Shenanigans:
– We were probably the only team to use Zoom and Slack instead of Discord for team comms.
– You can often find us hitting up Ranked on Friday nights as a group, including some of our other coworkers who were not on the IGL team.
– Multiple members of the team participated in the very first KQB beta in 2018 as part of a four-person couch stack.
– SaaS did not lose a single map to a Snail Victory the entire season and recorded four true Snail Victories.
– SaaS did well in the IGL Almanac Season Awards, taking 3 of the 5 awards and placing at least one person in every category. Higa was the most impressive at 17.7 kills/set, with second place being 11.6.
