Relyks says he was hard done by multiple role swaps
Skyler "Relyks" Weaver has released a TwitLonger (a day late, tsk) discussing how 2018 unfolded for him.
My 2018, eUnited and the Future— eU Skyler (@RelyksOG) January 3, 2019
Relyks starts with him joining the team, which required him to pick up the new role of in-game leader. With him at the reins, the team qualified for ESL Pro League, and had decent showings in both EPL and ECS.
Calling the signing of Pujan "FNS" Mehta as being "sort of from left field", Relyks goes on to say that he was eager to try being the team's primary AWPer, but dismayed to find out of the organization's attempts and eventual success in signing Austin "Cooper" Abadir to take on the role.
A further trial laid ahead for the player, as Will "dazzLe" Loafman was benched, and he was switched to entry. The team went on to qualify for the IEM Katowice Minor with this composition, and even attended a pre-holiday bootcamp. After departing from that bootcamp and going on holiday break, Relyks was informed of the team's intention to bring dazzLe back into the starting lineup.
In closing up his summary, Relyks went on to say the following of the myriad changes eUnited have underwent in the past several months.
I just don't think there was a reasonable time given in either iteration of the roles to even see close to where we'd be after building chemistry and waiting for things to fall into place
In addition to Relyks' message, Brandon "Ace" Winn has announced that his contract with the team has come to and end. Dust2.us is aware that both players were sent releases, despite their original contracts being set to run through February.
my contract with eunited has officially ended and i'm now available to pursue other options for a team. AWP primary or secondary. as of now only looking for pro offers but i may consider other divisions. dm's are open and rt's appreciated 💫💫— ᴀᴄᴇ (@LetMeAce) January 3, 2019
Both Relyks and Ace will now look for new squads to join up with, with MDL Season 30 starting in under two weeks time.
As for eUnited, next up for them is the IEM Katowice Americas Minor, where they will try to at least match their third place performance from earlier in the year, which would this time around grant them one more shot at the Major via the new playoff system.
