AZIO will field FrostayK in 1west's stead for now
AZIO has parted ways with Alex "1west" Kuehnl following the player's decision not to move to a team house alongside the rest of the team, Dust2.us has learned. The team now seeks a fifth player to fill the vacant slot, and will field Trevor "FrostayK" Bandle for their upcoming matches in a possible trial.

FrostayK's previous MDL appearances were brief, playing four maps for ANTI ECO CLUB during Season 26 and nine alongside Brenden "stellar" McGrath in Season 24. He'll be given another chance to show he can compete alongside the rising talent on MDL squads, and a solid performance may just earn him a permanent spot on AZIO's roster.
AZIO's roster is now:
- Dave "seziwana" Schrage
- Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg
- Willian "shonk" Kittrell
- Frankie "NnyQuil" Miranda
- Trevor "FrostayK" Bandle (stand-in/trial)
- Jordan "tryhard" Trabue (manager)
AZIO are set to take on the former Grizzlys roster, now going by MDL Jammers, on Wednesday at 8:30 PM EDT. The team also has the ZOTAC Cup Masters Closed Qualifier kicking off on Saturday, where they'll look to earn a spot at the Americas Final at the end of the month.
