After finishing ESEA Main in second place behind fragging for masamune and earning promotion to ESEA Advanced Season 32, V8 have been split asunder due to internal issues.
Dust2.us has been told that after the season ended, Tyler "adviko" Ingram immediately wanted to start rebuilding the roster alongside William "rin" McGraw in an effort to avoid what he feared would be middling season in Advanced. Andrew "VulcaN" Dominguez, however, was opposed to the idea, but with "btr" and Brandon "envy" Tovmassian already shown the exit, it was clear drastic measures would have to be taken.
In the end the trio were able to convince Derrick "Derrick" Slemp to give them the majority they needed mutiny adviko in return for a spot on the starting roster. This leaves adviko and rin without teams, and V8 in need of a fifth member.
V8's team now looks like this:
- Andrew "VulcaN" Dominguez
- Brandon "envy" Tovmassian
- Derrick "Derrick" Slemp
It ain't nothing personal but if you cut the 3 people who kept you in playoffs and got u to advanced then best believe something is gonna be done.— envy (@envyxoxo_) July 31, 2019
Meanwhile, the former SODMG roster has received a complete overhaul and found a home with Rebirth. The team went 7-9 last season of Advanced and also managed to win the WINNERS League Starter Division to earn a place in the Invite Division for the upcoming season.
The only player remaining following the end of Season 31 is Bobby "stamina" Eitrem, and he will be joined by Derek "dVeeN" Vander Veen, Rahmin "ShoukR" Shoukoohi, Ian "battery" Yates, and John "Magic1an" Girone. In order to keep their spot in Advanced with their four new additions, the team will have to play with "Eric" in three out of their first four matches.
Rebirth's new roster looks like this:
- Bobby "stamina" Eitrem
- Derek "dVeeN" Vander Veen
- Rahmin "ShoukR" Shoukoohi
- Ian "battery" Yates
- John "Magic1an" Girone
- "Eric" (Backup)
