ruin has found a spot on an MDL team headed into the upcoming promotion season
Excelerate have secured the services of former Gorilla Gang and Swole Patrol coach Corey "ruin" Hartog for the duration of Fragadelphia. The 27-year-old coach has been searching for a squad after stepping down from Gorilla Gang over two months ago. The Excelerate core have been without a coach since Michael "agM" Abood returned to the server in the middle of June, and will look to test the coach at Fragadelphia 12 this upcoming week.
The move follows a middling MDL season for the Excelerate roster, who found themselves unable to match their Season 27 performance and ended Season 28 in 12th place as part of a five-way-tie. With the upcoming MDL season being a promotion season, Excelerate are looking to stabilize and work towards a playoffs berth in Season 29.
With the addition of ruin, Excelerate's roster for Fragadelphia is:
- Thomas "tconnors" Connors
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Jacob "L0NER" Webster
- Michael "agM" Abood
- Brenden "stellar" McGrath
- Corey "ruin" Hartog (Coach)
New coach, new org, new us. Excited for the future. https://t.co/dQfR88MIEx— Tom Connors (@tconnorscs) July 28, 2018
Excelerate have no upcoming matches as MDL Season 28 has just come to a close. They're expected to continue participating in online qualifiers as they await the start of Season 29.
