Mohamed "Rated" Soliman has amassed many new fans and followers because of his role in Anubis Gaming's journey to winning the Intel Arabian Cup. Rated has always played an integral role in Anubis Gaming since he joined in 2016. It was their goal to always dominate the MENA region and win all tournaments. As the first League of Legends team from Egypt, Rated always determined to improving at the game and winning the biggest tournaments in the region. He finally had the opportunity to shine as he helped his team pick up its first trophy in 2020, after 2 years of not winning any middle eastern title.
Building a successful team
According to Rated, the key to success in big tournaments is building a team that can efficiently handle different situations. League of Legends throws various challenges at times when you least expect them. But you must overcome those challenges if you want to win big tournaments. It took Anubis Gaming nearly four years to win its first major trophy.
When asked about their recent success, Rated said, "Anubis Gaming saw many big names come and go over the last few years. From coaches to players, the team saw many ups and downs since its inception. But what made us stronger is the willingness to cross the line and win. It is true that we have participated in various tournaments but didn't emerge as the winner. But I think the losses taught us more. That's why the victory of the Intel Arabian Cup feels so sweet."
