As MDL Season 29 draws near, Zack "XotiC" Elshani has parted ways with Velocity. The player first joined MDL Jammers following a tenure with Splyce, before the organization dropped its CS:GO division, and an extremely brief stint with ex-Torqued. MDL Jammers later went on to be signed by Velocity in Season 28 of MDL.
When inquired about the player's departure, Lucas "Fiqiz" Blow told us that XotiC "doesn't wanna play." We reached out to XotiC for a comment as well, but have yet to receive a response at this time.
To briefly fill the newfound vacancy on the team, Velocity fielded Corbin "C0M" Lee for the IEM Chicago open qualifier. While the team did play with C0M, Velocity are not fully set on the player and are still evaluating options for the upcoming season.
Velocity's roster is currently:
- Sebastian "retchy" Tropiano
- Lucas "fiziq" Blow
- Antonio "AB" Benzan
- Daniel "tropiiical" Elshani
Velocity most recently participated in the IEM Chicago open qualifier, where they made it to the final round before abruptly forfeiting to Vision. The team are set to return in Season 29 of MDL, after just barely avoiding relegation in 16th place last season.
