With ESEA Advanced Season 34 playoffs underway and the season rapidly approaching its conclusion, Grazur, Kinship, and Supernova, and 26 Rising are some of the notable squads that have seen changes over the past three weeks.
On June 17th long-time Grazur member and Dust2.us alumni Max "SolGoat" Wallace stepped down from the team. The squad went on to miss out on Advanced playoffs, finishing the season with a 7-9 record.
As such, Grazur's current lineup consists of:
- Kyle "1Kyle" Kaiser
- Max "Makzwell" Sparrey
- Dalton "doltn" Ehlers
- Drew "Drewtheshrew" Lamb
Although they failed to make playoffs, Grazur secured enough wins to guarantee their spot in ESEA Advanced Season 35 which is set to begin sometime after the player break.
I'm LFT for Season 35, ADV+. I would prefer to rifle, but can also IGL for the right roster. DM me for inquiries 🤠— SolGoat (@SolGoat) June 17, 2020
Next up, Kinship replaced VEIN with Sean "naes" Fontaine on June 25th. naes is no stranger to Kinship, having been a part of the lineup for most of May and half of June before being replaced on the starting five by Anthony "CLASIA" Kearney.
cut from kinship before playoffs because of personality problems, not really sure how im the one who gets fucked over when we've had dozens of team talks and our problems have always been with other people but no one wants to play with me now— Andrew Lindeman (@veinJESUS) June 26, 2020
With this change, Kinship are currently:
- Koby "kobruh" Higgs
- Connor "chop" Sullivan
- Kyle "Wolffe" Greenfield
- Anthony "CLASIA" Kearney
- Sean "naes" Fontaine
Kinship are currently in the lower bracket of Advanced playoffs following a 2-0 loss to Thunder Logic in upper bracket round two.
The lineup that formerly played under Ekasi have found a new home ahead of the start of playoffs. After being released from Ekasi on June 27th the squad briefly played as EternaL before signed by Supernova on June 30th.
This marks the Supernova organization's return to Advanced after their previous roster disbanded following numerous players leaving to join ex-Polar Ace.
Supernova are now:
- Fadi "Fade" Al-Najjar
- Royal "royalG" Gong
- Adnan "RsN" Nasir
- Tonny "f1ukie" Liu
- GianFranco "Koalanoob" Potestio
Rounding out this season's changes, The Survey Corps have also found a new home, being signed by 26 Rising on July 2nd. 26 Rising have hosted a number of North American rosters, and were known as V8 before undergoing a rebrand in late June.
