Following the departure of Loic "effys" Sauvageau to LiViD yesterday, RUNnGUN were initially set to disband following the loss of their in-game leader, however after a brief trial the team have added Brandon "YuZ" Cyr and elected to stick together.
RUNnGUN played the first ECS Season 8 Open Qualifier with YuZ earlier today, falling to Variance 16-14 in the round of 32. The team also utilized YuZ earlier in the off-season as a stand-in for the Mythic Cup 4 Qualifier where he was able to help the team secure a spot in the main event.
Prior to joining RUNnGUN, YuZ helped his former team, Nobu, qualify for ESEA Main from the Intermediate division, and now he looks ready to make the step up to Advanced.
RUNnGUN's roster now looks like this:
- Yannick "KOLER" Blanchette
- Michael "miLLe" St-Pierre
- David "J0LZ" Jolin
- Cedric "M3lio" Perrault
- Brandon "YuZ" Cyr
RUNnGUN are set to take part in DreamHack Canadian Championship on September 6th, however Dust2.us has that YuZ is unable to attend the event. In his place, the team will be enlisting the help of Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik as a stand-in.
