Dust2.us has learned that Rise's roster has undergone a number of changes ahead of the start of ESEA Advanced Season 36 as Filip "Feedalee" Mitevski has left the team to pursue VALORANT while Ken "krotomo" Otomo is sidelined for an unknown period of time with a hand injury.
The loss of Feedalee comes as a heavy blow to the team as he was their top-rated player across Advanced playoffs and MDL Relegation.
Dust2.us knows that Kevin "consti" Yi was also heavily considering an exit from the team, leaving the ESEA roster and initially planning on playing Open next season with Edward "kber" Vaudry and Minna "oofpezz" Adel Rubio before coming back to the lineup today.
With these changes, Rise are now:
- Cody "Domorin" Lutzel
- Aidan "Aidan" Higgason
- Kevin "consti" Yi
- Ken "krotomo" Otomo (Inactive)
- Evan "Marson" Brown (Coach)
ESEA Season 36 is currently set to start on January 18th. It is worth noting that as Kinship are likely set to disband, Rise would be presumably the first team in line to claim their MDL slot.
