According to recently added Variance member Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak, the team are currently on the lookout for a fifth following Stoyno "neska" Atanasov's departure from the team.
Looking for 1 player to compete in @ESEA MDL this upcoming season, lurk/support DM me.— Kevin Przypasniak (@BL_4Packkk) April 24, 2019
Variance member Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes stated in a tweet that neska parted ways with the team due to his computer not being able to run the game at a reasonable framerate. Sources close to the team have confirmed to Dust2.us that neska is no longer with the team and they are currently on the lookout for a new fifth.
However, when Dust2.us reached out to the organization for comment, we were told that KmZ's tweet is not accurate, they had no further comment, and for the moment neska remains with the organization, pending a future decision.
In his stead, the team were recently spotted using Gabe "Spongey" Greiner during the second ESL Cologne Open Qualifier, but it is not known if he will join the team on a permanent basis. Spongey was recently removed from Chris and the boys in favor of Chase "mcs" Sullivan.
Variance now have the following roster:
- Bilal "SPAMMER" Ali
- Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes
- Justin "FaNg" Coakley
- Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak
- Huthaifa "blitzz" Khan (Coach)
- George "Powerzz" Yaede (Backup)
Regardless of their decision, Variance will need to solidify their roster in short order as MDL Season 31 is set to start on April 29th.
