Dust2.us has learned that ImPerium have cut Grant "Burt^" Burt. The move comes after a poor start to ESEA MDL Season 35 for the team, as they currently find themselves towards the bottom of the division with a 1-7 record.
LF1 for the rest of MDL. Need a rifler. RT appreciated— Wilky (@Wilkycsgo) October 12, 2020
Individually, Burt^ has had an underwhelming performance in his and the team's first MDL season, with the player sitting at a 0.72 rating after eight maps.
Regarding the reasons for his removal, Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson told Dust2.us that the team replaced Burt^ in favor of a player who can be more aggressive and who has better in-game comms, stating that Burt^'s comms "caused a lot of problems".
ImPerium are now:
- Carter "CarterJ" Richardson
- Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson
- James "EllisoN" Ellison
- Ian "heretic" Carfora
- Kornel "BirdehBox" Harmati (Coach)
As of now, ImPerium's are not scheduled to play in MDL this week, but will take on New England Whalers, ex-Warriors International, RBG, and Secret Club next week.
