With the ESEA Advanced Season 33 regular season approaching its end, Brazen and Kinship both made changes to their roster before the roster lock came into effect.
Starting off with Brazen, on February 26th the team have brought in Gregory "REDKILLER" Zanis, Eric "Kwong" Kwong, and Nikita "Advice" Ignatiev to recomplete their roster following the departure Adam "mada" Pampuch, Sean "naes" Fontaine, and Brennan "grape" Greer towards the end of February.
Now back up to full strength, Brazen are:
- Connor "chop" Sullivan
- Paul "aris" Wilson
- Gregory "REDKILLER" Zanis
- Eric "Kwong" Kwong
- Nikita "Advice" Ignatiev
Unfortunately, the multiple changes the roster have undergone over the course of the season have not helped the team's record, with Brazen currently sitting towards the bottom of the division with a 4-10 record.
If the team are to have any hope of avoiding relegation, they will need to win their last three matches of the season. Brazen's next match is scheduled against Xternal on March 8th.
As for Kinship, on March 1st the team parted ways with Vincent "Vince" Chen while "Bo_oM" stepped down, adding Max "Makzwell" Sparrey and Jun "JPARK" Park.
As a result, Kinship are now:
- Max "SolGoat" Wallace
- Kyle "1Kyle" Kaiser
- Aidan "Aidan" Higgason
- Max "Makzwell" Sparrey
- Jun "JPARK" Park
- James "Jachro" Brooks (Coach)
- "Bo_oM" (Inactive)
Kinship currently have a 7-8 record, putting the team at the edge of playoffs contention. They will need to win their match against Indecision on March 8th in order to have a chance of making playoffs.
Update: Due to this Advanced featuring 64 teams, playoffs will feature 32 teams. As a result, Kinship are still in playoff contention. We apologize for any confusion.
