After losing Rahul "curry" Nemani to Hysteria yesterday, Dust2.us has learned that Rugratz have also decided to kick David "J0LZ" Jolin from the squad, depleting their roster to just three players. Additionally, Teric "Bibby" Ingram has stepped down from the team, with Mark "markalodon" Rose currently coaching the team on trial.
Rugratz’s roster has experienced a great deal of upheaval following the conclusion of Season 31, with the squad losing six players over the course of the month.
J0LZ is the latest to part ways with the team with the player telling Dust2.us that he was unceremoniously kicked from the team on July 20th after the team fell in their inaugural outing against Peeker's Advantage in the second MSI MGA open qualifier. He said that the team didn't really give him much feedback or reasons for his dismissal though Alexander "zander" Diaz told Dust2.us that he was unhappy with the lack of improvement and simple mistakes he had seen while playing with J0LZ.
As for Bibby, he told Dust2.us that he has moved onto other ventures including vlogging and YouTube content creation. He is set to be replaced by markalodon who returns to MDL after previously being a part of the Chris and the boys lineup that dissolved in the middle of MDL Season 31.
With these changes, Rugratz have the following roster:
- Joshua "Hunter" Madore
- Alexander "zander" Diaz
- Erik "bul" Penny
- Mark "markalodon" Rose (Trial Coach)
Rugratz are currently signed up for the third MSI MGA open qualifier with Ascent player David "Sneaky" Polster and former Lowkey player Paytyn "Junior" Johnson.
