Devin "Xzen" Barber has announced that he has been benched from GSG9 and is now looking for a team.
Benched from GSG9 / LFT— Devin 🐸 (@XzenCSGO) December 20, 2020
It is the second move to come out of the GSG9 camp since the team qualified to MDL through Relegation, if one counts the alleged removal of in-game leader Ryan "ROBBY1" Robshaw. Though members of the team later refuted they were looking for a replacement for ROBBY1, Soham "valens" Chowdhury played in his place in ESEA Winter Cash Cup 2, where GSG9 were eliminated in the second round by Ad Nauseum.
Xzen and ROBBY1 were the two statistically weakest players on the team through Advanced playoffs and MDL Relegation, both averaging 1.03 ratings across the two events.
With the change, GSG9 are now:
- Jake "Decko" Muse
- Richi "sherps" Sherpa
- Johnny "JDubs" Wu
- Ryan "ROBBY1" Robshaw
- Devin "Xzen" Barber (Inactive)
ESEA MDL Season 36 is set to begin on January 18th.
