The team's performance in Season 28 was middling, seeing them put up a 7-9 scoreline with their head-to-head wins and round difference allowing them to finish in 12th place in a 3-way-tie. Their Season 27 performance saw them fall 2-0 in the playoff semifinals to eUnited while they finished the regular season with an 11-5 record.
Excelerate's roster is composed of:
- Thomas "tconnors" Connors
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Jacob "L0NER" Webster
- Michael "agM" Abood
- Tyler "tweiss" Weiss
Excelerate most recently replaced Ali "phantom" Sachs with Tyler "tweiss" Weiss, with the change seeing the team win only one of the squad's final five MDL matches. They're set to play in MDL Season 29, where they'll have the chance to qualify for ESL Pro League. Excelerate plan to attend Fragadelphia 12 next week with former member Brenden "stellar" McGrath in place of tweiss for the duration of the tournament.
