With the start of ESEA Advanced Season 36 less than two weeks away, Revenant have completed the overhaul of their roster, bringing back Keller "SLIGHT" Nilan while adding former Russian Canadians player Dylan "Saturn" Finch and former ex-ImPerium player James "EllisoN" Ellison.
As a result, Revenant have parted ways with Austin "AJaxz" Janocha who has moved onto Heart n Soul and Ernie "amen" Yokley who has seemingly retired from CS:GO and joined Call of Duty sniping clan Exalt.
The significant overhaul to Revenant's roster comes after the team failed to claim a spot in ESEA MDL Season 36 after falling to ex-Thunder Logic in the lower bracket of ESEA Advanced Season 35 playoffs.
Of the players joining the team Saturn is the most experienced, having made ESEA MDL Season 35 playoffs alongside Russian Canadians before the team unceremoniously forfeited playoffs due to Alex "vek" Voynov and Ian "battery" Yates dodging the opening match against Russian Canadians. After initially staying on the team to help rebuild it, Saturn has rejoined Revenant in Advanced after Russian Canadians elected to cut him and bring back a number of former players including vek.
EllisoN is also back in Advanced following a middling season with ex-ImPerium. Despite this, he will likely be a strong member of the lineup; garnering a 1.04 rating during his last stint in Advanced during Season 34 playoffs.
The final member of the lineup, SLIGHT, is no stranger to the team, having played the first two matches of Season 35 with Revenant before being replaced alongside Anthony "MeLLo" Charletta in favor of amen and Ryan "notorious" Gordon.
With these additions, Revenant's lineup for Season 36 will be:
- Josh "Spoice" Betters
- Ryan "notorious" Gordon
- Dylan "Saturn" Finch
- James "EllisoN" Ellison
- Keller "SLIGHT" Nilan
- David "Gatr" MacAulay (Coach)
ESEA Advanced Season 36 is set to start on January 18th.
