Warriors International performed well in their first season of MDL, managing to secure a spot in ESEA MDL Season 35 following an 8-9 regular season, one win outside of playoffs contention.
Recently, the team have seen a number of changes as they parted ways with Daniel "bokumbop" Yoo while Donald "voo" Parkhurst left the team to focus on content creation.
The addition of Delta9 comes after the player had a standout season in ESEA Advanced Season 34 playoffs, ending the event with a 1.28 rating over the course of five maps. The moves marks his return to coaching North American teams after a stint coaching Bulgarian team FATE.
As a result, ex-Warriors International are now:
- Brett "hyper-" Rhein
- Derek "Hendy" Hendrixson
- Walker "walker" Harris
- Michael "Swisher" Schmid
- David "Delta9" Shafer
- Teric "Bibby" Ingram (Trial Coach)
- Colin "Koi" Thor (Assistant Coach/Analyst)
ex-Warriors International are currently competing in the first IEM New York Open Qualifier, with the team battling for one of two spots in the closed qualifier.
