Austin "crashies" Roberts has stepped down from Bad News Bears, with the player telling Dust2.us that he will instead be "focusing on VALORANT." Will "dazzLe" Loafman has been enlisted in his stead, reuniting the former eUnited player with Michael "dapr" Gulino.

The move also marks a reunion between dazzLe and Jonathan "Jonji" Carey, with the duo most recently playing together on New Identity. Notably, Jonji found himself replaced by dapr on that very roster just one month after joining, with the team going on to be signed by Singularity in October.

Bad News Bears were last seen competing under the FunPlus Phoenix banner in Flashpoint 1, where they managed a playoff berth before being eliminated in back-to-back losses to MAD Lions and Gen.G. In the 15 maps that the team played, crashies averaged a 0.90 rating, the second lowest on the roster above in-game leader Peter "ptr" Gurney.

  • us Peter "ptr" Gurney
  • us Mitch "mitch" Semago
  • ca Jonathan "Jonji" Carey
