After initially parting ways with Brazen on December 22nd, ex-Brazen have completed their roster for Season 33 with the additions of Antonio "AB" Benzan and Alex "vek" Voynov.
The addition of AB marks a return to action for the Canadian player as he hasn't played a full season since leaving ex-Velocity back in Season 29.
As for vek, he missed out on the majority of Season 32 after leaving Triumph back in September.
With these additions, ex-Brazen's roster is as follows:
- Oliver "figment" Thompson
- Troy "ara" Pollock
- Marcos "tacitus" Castilho
- Antonio "AB" Benzan
- Alex "vek" Voynov
Elsewhere in Advanced, Polar Ace have returned to CS:GO with the signing of timbermen.
The roster surprised in their second season of Advanced by managing to make playoffs following a 10-6 regular season. Their Season 31 run would later come to an end after a 2-0 loss to Oceanus.
However, their performance was enough to gain the attention of Polar Ace, signing the squad while also replacing Riley "violent" Levenson with Jake "eptima" Allen.
As such, Polar Ace is now:
- Shane "shane" Dressler
- Noah "insane" Eheart
- Derek "dare" Brown
- Wyatt "snav" Phillippi
- Jake "eptima" Allen
Polar Ace have also informed Dust2.us that they have signed six-month contracts with the team meaning they will be with the organization through Season 34.
