witmer returns on RONIN

Shawn "witmer" Taylor and Joshua "sancz" Ballenger have both returned from semi-retirement to play for RONIN in Season 28 of MDL, witmer announced on Twitter earlier today. This completes RONIN's roster following the departure of Stephen "reltuC" Cutler and Jeff "REZU" Ngo.

Both sancz and witmer have seen little in the way of active play recently, with the former having not competed in an official match since August of last year. His last matches saw  his team Pnda finish in tenth place for MDL Season 25.

In the meantime, witmer has been a little more active, competing under the x1 Mob banner at Mad City: Chicago in February despite annoucing his retirement the week prior. He cited a lack of drive to play the game in a dedicated team environment despite having a passion for the game, claiming "I’m more of a free flowing, love for the game, more emotional [player] as opposed to logical."

witmer: "I'm not worried until finals, even though I have zero hours"

With the return of sancz and witmer, RONIN's roster is now:

  • fr David "Xp3" Garrido
  • us Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce
  • us Collin "wrath" McSweegan
  • us Joshua "sancz" Ballenger
  • us Shawn "witmer" Taylor
  • us Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez (Coach)

xp3 was a decent igl and awperwhen he was on invite. he was nowhere near bottom table. got fucked because of the roster rules.

sancz was also always a subtop invite player. he made the choice to play premier.

flowsick is the definiton of a pro reject. he is a coach tho. and witmer never really played pro for a long time so it shouldnt count.
