New England Whalers have announced the signing of Brendan "Bwills" Williams, who will join their roster in place of Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts after the 22-year-old stepped down on Monday. Additionally, Joseph "Muenster" Lima has returned to coach the roster, last making an appearance as the coach of Party Astronauts in ESEA MDL Season 31.
Bwills joins the team after putting up solid numbers in the previous MDL season and in recent qualifiers, most notably helping Levitate and Positive Vibes Only to runner-up finishes in a number of Mythic and ESEA 5vs5 Cups. In a statement to New England Whalers, Bwills said that he is "super excited to be apart of the Whalers this season" and that he "couldn't be happier playing with these guys and having an amazing organization supporting us."
Muenster, meanwhile, had the following to say regarding his return:
After taking a much-needed break from competitive CS, I'm really happy to be back and working alongside old friends and some new ones. Going to be working harder than before to secure that Pro League spot.
The addition of their new player and coach leaves New England Whalers' roster looking as follows:
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Ramal "Rampage" Silva
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
- Brendan "Bwills" Williams
- Joseph "Muenster" Lima (Coach)
The new-look roster is currently making its debut against Eclipse in ESEA MDL Season 35 on the ESEA Twitch channel.
