Dust2.us has learned that Peeker's Advantage will be moving forward with Noah "ULTRA" Giesbrecht as their fifth player.
The addition comes after the departure of Andy "vSa" Xu from the team, which was described as a mutual decision between the two parties. The former Rise Nation in-game leader had only been with the squad a few weeks, having joined alongside Stephen "reltuC" Cutler at the end of July.
ULTRA joined Ascent at the end of July, and played with the team as recently as last night in the third ECS Season 8 Pinnacle Cup qualifier. With the team opting to forfeit their match against Monstars tonight, the player's brief time with the squad has come to a close.
The team's coach Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg had the following to say about the addition of ULTRA:
Every time someone skyrockets in the scene and is surrounded by controversy, they end up being a transcendent player. It was the case with s1mple, it was the case with Stewie. Right now that player is ULTRA and we have faith he will excel.
Peeker's Advantage now have the following roster:
- Chad "Oderus" Miller
- Taylor "Drone" Johnson
- Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
- Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
- Noah "ULTRA" Giesbrecht
- Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg (Coach)
With Peeker's Advantage finding their fifth player, the team will now look forward to the start of the new MDL season at the end of August.
