With the Season 31 roster lock fast approaching, there has been a flurry of activity as teams make last-minute changes to set themselves up for the playoffs.
Shortly after our last Advanced update, Brazen went into full rebuild mode, with Troy "ara" Pollock and Oliver "figment" Thompson departing the roster to join Cyclone. The change left "grape" as the only player remaining from the team the organization signed at the beginning of the season.
As always the universe tends to balance itself out, and one of the players Brazen have replenished their roster with is former Cyclone member Adam "freshie" Paterson. Interestingly, despite ara initially being brought on as Cyclone's coach, it now appears he is in the starting five for the team.
The two teams now have the following rosters:
Brazen are 6-4 currently, having lost the only match they have played with the new roster thus far. Cyclone are faring a bit better, sitting at 7-4, and going 1-1 with their new roster.
Despite having shown good form in qualifiers of late, Good Game PR have replaced Riley "Reality" Futsch and Peter "Asuna" Mazuryk with Jake "exotic" Vaupell and Amine "dopamine" Hamzic. The two former members have joined the rosters of Big Frames and Demon Slayers, respectively.
Good Game PR now have the following roster:
- Michael "niche" Marvin
- Jack "micro" Ryan
- Chase "lowrider" Releford
- Jake "exotic" Vaupell
- Amine "dopamine" Hamzic
- Luke "Jolts" Payne (Coach)
Never ones to miss a chance to add players to their ever-growing army, Old Guys Club have picked up the services of Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne and "Thesucka". It should also be noted that LILMAN has joined NRG as their CS:GO manager.
Old Guys Club now have:
- Samuel "SileNt" Portillo
- Yazan "clowN" Ammari
- Sean "seang@res" Gares
- Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
- Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen
- Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson
- Christine "potter" Chi
- Jaryd "summit" Lazar
- Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne
Finally, after having dipped their toes into CS:GO with the ill-fated past and present Thunder Logic roster, Front have returned with the signing of Sadbots. The new Front team is:
- Thomas "ExToSee" Johnson
- Calvin "becker" Becker
- Aleksandar "ALEKSANDAR" Hinojosa
- Ethan "ReckMONSTER" Serrano
- Stephen "SGM" Mechan
The team are currently 7-4 in the league.
Welcome the official CS:GO line-up to Team Front! #ForeverInFront— Team Front (@FrontGG) June 2, 2019
We are so excited to be working with this team and we cannot wait to watch them play out the rest of the season in hopes of making MDL.
Other moves of note are Jasper "sfX" Ko joining the substantial Neon Black roster, and Dylan "Hiki" O'Kane joining the Collateral roster.
