Along with the former F1 player Daniel "tropiiical" Elshani, former Splyce and CLG Academy player Zach "XotiC" Elshani will be joining the MDL Jammers active lineup, Dust2.us has learned.
The 17 year old American was previously reported to have joined the ESEA roster for the Jammers, however it was unknown whether he would be joining as an active player. It has now been confirmed by members of the team that XotiC will be playing for the team in ESEA over Bradley "crazylegs" Waddington, who was previously believed to be on the roster based on the previous lineup proposed by the team at the beginning of the season.
With the confirmation, MDL Jammers' active lineup is now:
- Sebastian "retchy" Tropiano
- Lucas "fiziq" Blow
- Antonio "AB" Benzan
- Daniel "tropiiical" Elshani
- Zechrie "XotiC" Elshani
The MDL Jammers roster on ESEA had been in flux before the start current MDL season, with multiple people joining and leaving the roster. The new additions of tropiiical and XotiC are the first roster changes for the team during the season.
With MDL Jammers now free to use more new players thanks to the team having played eight matches in the regular season, it's likely the team will become stable over time as they begin to solidify a roster.
The team currently sits low in the MDL standings with a 2-6 record so far in the season, with matches against 46&2 and Mythic coming up in the following week, where the MDL Jammers' new players will be put to the test.
