wrath and Jonji make a massive impact at T.O. Spawn

Following their 7-8th place finish at T.O. Spawn this past weekend, LiviD have parted ways with Michael "miLLe" St-Pierre. A standout performance as a part of Grizzlys at the same event has seen the return of Abdo "c4lypso" Agha to LiviD, with the player having previously played for the French Canadian roster in the first eight matches of Season 30 before being released.

miLLe was the longest-standing member of the squad, originally linking up with the organization in June of 2018. Dust2.us knows that his removal was a two-part issue, with members of the team citing internal issues in addition to miLLe's wish to return to AWPing. The player announced his search for a new team in a tweet last night.

LiviD's roster now consists of:

  • ca Danny "huynh" Huynh
  • ca Michael "MkaeL" De Luca
  • ca Cedric "M3lio" Perrault
  • ca Mathieu "INCREDIBLE" Bergeron
  • ca Abdo "c4lypso" Agha
  • fr Fabien "atLaNtis" Deguiraud (Coach)

Thunder Logic and BLITZKRIEG through to MDL; Old Guys Club put out to pasture

After being relegated to Advanced following back-to-back losses to slashLEVEL and The Quest in MDL Relegation, Old Guys Club have increased the average age of their members with the re-addition of Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson. The Swede was a member of the original Old Guys Club roster that participated in ESEA Open Season 28, with the team finishing their run with a 14-2 regular season record before forfeiting their third playoff match. 

Although he was never a part of the MDL iteration of the roster, Fifflaren played alongside Sean "seang@res" Gares and Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert in the team's ESEA Open matches, and now makes a return as Old Guys Club prepare to stream the upcoming Advanced season. Fifflaren is also set to return to the couch at cs_summit 4, continuing his run of appearances at the laid-back event.
