ben1337 and Vireo.pro await the start of MDL Season 30
With Donovan "zNf" Froid's contract with Vireo.pro concluding at the end of the year, the team have been using Ben "ben1337" Smith as their fifth since earlier in the month.
The team have played two events with the young in-game leader, the qualifier for StarSeries i-League Season 7, and the N3rd Street Gamers Eastern Conference Championship. They were not able to win either, but finished the latter in 3rd-4th with a loss to eventual champions Drip or Drown.
Now it seems that the team are ready to proceed with ben1337 for the long haul, as the player has joined the team's ESEA roster, and he has been added to the description as a member of the roster. As Brenden "stellar" McGrath told us when we spoke with him in Atlantic City, "everything is just going really smooth" for the team with ben1337 at the reins.
Vireo.pro have not yet formally announced ben1337, but did share the following late last night:
Hey, Ben? You still standing in?— Vireo.pro🕊 (@Vireopro) December 28, 2018
With the addition of ben1337, Vireo.pro's roster would be:
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Brenden "stellar" McGrath
- Robert "robby" Brown
- Ricky "floppy" Kemery
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
- Rustun "Rustun" Lusk (Coach)
ben1337 and Vireo.pro now await the start of ESEA MDL Season 30, where the team will look to at least match their Season 29 result, where they finished in fourth place.
