After two days of speculation over changes affecting Lowkey's newly formed CS:GO team, Dust2.us has learned that following Bradley "mickey" Waddington's return to the team's ESEA roster, no changes are expected at this time.
The upheaval on the team began two nights ago when mickey suddenly departed the roster, after previously retweeting a series of cryptic tweets from a user "amnesia" which showed mickey lying in bed. One thing to note is that for some reason amnesia was a member of the Lowkey ESEA roster, although she has never played a season on the service.
Dust2.us has learned that the reason that mickey left the roster was that after being confronted by fellow team members, they revealed that amnesia was involved in some way with both mickey and Lucas "Fiziq" Blow. The resulting outcome of this was the departure of mickey while he came to terms with this revelation.
While all this was happening, the team began to worry that if mickey did not return to the team, the roster would be marked dead as Fiziq was the only remaining member from the ex-Velocity squad that participated in Season 29. As such, Austin "RenZ" Dickman was brought in as an emergency stand-in to help preserve the roster spot while the team tried to convince mickey to return. Since then, mickey has rejoined, amnesia has been kicked, and the team's immediate roster issues have been resolved.
Lowkey's roster is therefore unchanged and is:
- Lucas "Fiziq" Blow
- Bradley "mickey" Waddington
- Ryan "Winsum" Johns
- Thomas "Axed" Ryan
- Marcos "tacitus" Castilho
- Sean "ashen" Yang (Coach)
It now appears that Lowkey are on the lookout for a sports psychologist, potentially to avoid a situation like this happening again to the newly founded organization.
I'm avidly seeking a sports psychologist/current student to work with athletes currently at @LowkeyEsportsGG. Mental health is a massive deal in competitions and has been something every competitor deals with and ensuring we are able to support our players in this way is enormous— Max Wood (@LK_Maxbot) January 20, 2019
