Kinship have elected to replace Ian "heretic" Carfora with Christopher "Swahn" Swahn. The move comes after a poor start to the season for the MDL newcomers, with the team currently sitting upon a 1-6 record with their sole win being their season opener against ex-Recon 5.
This move reunites Swahn with Troy "ara" Pollock and Brennan "grape" Greer, with the duo having played together in ESEA Advanced Season 34 on Soham "valens" Chowdhury's Savage.
When questioned about the decision to replace heretic, grape told Dust2.us the following:
We just felt that going with Swahn would be better for us moving forward with the amount of experience he has and how much he can bring to our team. Also, since me and ara have already played with him before, having him mesh into our roster will be easy. Overall, heretic was a good player, but this opportunity to play with Swahn was a decision we decided would be best for our team moving forward.
With this change, Kinship are now:
- Connor "chop" Sullivan
- Sean "naes" Fontaine
- Troy "ara" Pollock
- Brennan "grape" Greer
- Christopher "Swahn" Swahn
After using two wildcards to reschedule their matches this week, Swahn will make his debut with Kinship next week on October 7th against Mythic at 9:30 PM EDT.
