Panda December Recap

Panda December Recap

December was truly an exciting month for both the Panda team and community! Along with our official rebranding and new lineup of Pandas early on in the month, we also saw our players achieve high placements in competitions and many exciting community giveaways throughout December. Here’s a short recap:

Panda Wolfey Wins First Place at the Players Cup II


On December 13th, Panda’s very own Wolfe “Wolfey” Glick achieved a first place finish at the Play! Pokemon Players Cup II. Wolfey was able to finish off the tournament with a major comeback with his Coalossal against Davide Carrer.

After being knocked into Losers side of bracket early on by Carrer, Wolfey blazed through multiple sets to face off against Carrer once again in Grand Finals. Using a new, unique team of Pokemon that could adapt to almost any situation, Wolfey was able to claim the crown as Champion of the Players Cup II to finish out the end of 2020.

You can watch Wolfey’s recap of the event in his video here:


The grind never stops for our Pandas! On the same day, Wolfey competed in the TFT NA Worlds Qualifier after another player unexpectedly dropped out at the last minute. He was able to place 10th overall. He was able to achieve a respectable 15th place in the following scheduled tournament for the event on December 19th.

SmallAnt and Hayatei Achieve Greatness!

SmallAnt accomplished an extraordinary second place win at the Twitch Rivals Among Us event on December 18th. Despite this being his very first Twitch Rivals challenge, SmallAnt was able to impress viewers and the commentators with his clever strategic choices throughout the competition. 


Panda’s Alexandre “Hayatei” Dubé-Bilodeau also achieved notable placements this month with a 3rd place finish at the WePlay Dragon Temple Mortal Kombat 11 tournament, which was hosted in Ukraine. 

Using primarily Fujin throughout the tournament, Hayatei was able to take wins off of multiple top international Mortal Kombat 11 players, including New Age Team’s Wellington “Konqueror249” de Castro and Dynamik Focus’s George “Grr” Foulkes.


Panda had two exciting holiday giveaways throughout the month of December! The first giveaway featured a challenge for the Panda community to post their best memes to our newly revamped subreddit featuring one of our Pandas. Meme creators could either focus on Tyler “Marss” Martins, Victor “Punk” Woodley, or Simply. 

This giveaway included one of our new Panda track jackets, a $10 Steam gift card, and an official Among Us mug!


We were thrilled to see all the creativity and meme mastery from our community! The final winners for this giveaway were u/Devin007, u/Brando_ssb, and u/Infernape315. Check out all of the submitted memes on our subreddit here.

Members of the Panda community had another chance to win another one of our biggest giveaways yet near the end of the month. This giveaway featured quite the lineup of goodies, including the HyperX Cloud Buds wireless headphones and Chargeplay Clutch courtesy of HyperX. As well as a Nintendo Switch and more!


We are looking forward to even more announcements and exciting achievements from our Pandas throughout 2021! Make sure to follow our socials to keep up with the latest news and community giveaways.
