ex-Ascent coach Justin "NEX" McLellan has announced that he will no longer be coaching the team following the birth of his son earlier in the month.
No longer coaching for @AscentEsports. Having a baby is a whole new animal when it comes to my time. Nothing but love for the guys and I know they’re going to kill it next season and will rep any org well! @fiziqsucks @Bewbiecs @djaycs @NiSMOcS @TheRealPwnAlone— NEX (@theNEXlevel) November 22, 2019
The MDL side are coming off of a 7-8th finish in MDL Season 32, which was cut short by losses to Ben's Anime Team and Rugratz in the playoffs. Prior to that, they reached the quarterfinals of the open qualifier for DreamHack Open Atlanta before a loss to Riot Squad.
ex-Ascent are now:
- Marc-Andre "NiSMO" Tayar
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Lucas "Fiziq" Blow
- Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
Moving on without a coach for the time being, the team remain on the lookout for an organization, and are currently 2-2 in WINNERS League Season 3 Invite.
