Until next time Mr. Connors
Thomas "tconnors" Connors announced on Twitter late last night that he will be stepping down from the Excelerate roster and will be taking a break from Counter-Strike to focus on his personal life.
Sad to say that our match vs @AZIOeSports tonight will be my last with the @ExcelerateGG squad. Stepping down this season to take a break and focus on some real life things. Good luck to the boys moving forward. The results will come with the work you guys have been putting in :]— Tom Connors (@tconnors555) October 4, 2018
Excelerate have faced some challenges at the beginning of this MDL season after the team unveiled their new roster featuring the likes of Keanu "DaneJoris" Reyes and Casey "SideStep" Hartzler. With victories over Vault and Blight, as well as a forfeit win from ex-Dignitas dying out, the squad has gone 3-3 so far.
With tconnors exit, the roster will look as such for the time being:
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Michael "agM" Abood
- Keanu "DaneJoris" Reyes
- Casey "SideStep" Hartzler
- Corey "ruin" Hartog (Coach)
Freelance MDL caster Mike "DarfMike" Winnick went the extra mile to offer tconnors a small tribute video during tconnors' final game against AZIO.
