Dust2.us has learned that Bryan "HavoK" Kuzawinski has stepped down from Depth ahead of the start of ESEA MDL Season 35 playoffs. His exit from the team comes in part due to unfortunate personal circumstances that sees the player without internet following extensive damage to his mother's house as a result of Hurricane Zeta.
Due to hurricane zeta my mom currently has no place to live from a tree going through her house and needs help with trying to rent a mobile home until her house is able to be rebuilt and livable again.Please help out if you can or just retweet thanks! https://t.co/R2P5BUdAxx— BIGB (@Big_Bryan_) October 30, 2020
As a result, Depth will be using Jake "bddu" Gartin as a stand-in for the remainder of the season.
The loss of HavoK will be a heavy blow for Depth in playoffs, as he was their highest rated player with a 1.07 rating over the course of eight maps.
His replacement, bddu will have to step up in a big way tonight as he has never played a season on ESEA before. The team's manager Jake "eptima" Allen told Dust2.us that bddu is a friend of the team, and while he has never played semi-professionally before they believe he is a stronger fragger than the team's coach "FLUSH" or their substitute player Sean "Zevro" Hartnett.
Depth's roster for ESEA MDL Season 35 playoffs will be:
- Wyatt "snav" Phillippi
- Shane "shane" Dressler
- Derek "dare" Brown
- Kyle "KEL" Murray
- Jake "bddu" Gartin (Stand-in)
Depth's playoff run will begin tonight against Secret Club at 8PM EST.
