ben1337 returns to activity after two months without an official match
With the list of teams set to compete in week one of ECS Season 8 North America, the addition of Singularity raised eyebrows as the team currently only have three members and rumors swirl regarding the organization's roster moving forward. However, Dust2.us has learned that Singularity are reportedly set to compete as a mix-team tomorrow.
Sources close to Singularity tell Dust2.us that current members Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman and Cameron "hydrex" Kern have enlisted the services of Ben "ben1337" Smith, Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue, and Robert "robby" Brown for their matchup against NRG tomorrow. The entire roster has yet to get approval from ECS however the team is confident everything will be approved in time for tomorrow.
This move temporarily reunites the core of the Party Astronauts lineup which competed in MDL Season 31 a few months ago, and also reunites Gorilla Gang alumni hydrex and ben1337.
Singularity's roster for tomorrow is reportedly as follows:
- Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman
- Cameron "hydrex" Kern
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Robert "robby" Brown
It is interesting to note that although Ryan "ryann" Welsh also remains contracted to Singularity at this time, he will not be playing alongside Shakezullah and hydrex as he is set to play with Envy in the DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Closed Qualifier finals tomorrow.
According to a report by Jarek "DeKay" Lewis at Dexerto, Singularity are asking for $60,000 for Shakezullah and hydrex, while Envy are offering $20,000 for ryann.
