As "Not Triumph" the roster finished second in Mythic Winter Cup after beating Eclipse 2-0, RBG 2-1, and losing to High Coast 2-0 in the grand final. Austin "Cooper-" Abadir finished as the highest rated player in the event with a 1.39 rating across seven maps. Triumph are invited to DreamHack Open January 2021, which begins next Wednesday the 27th, but will likely make their official debut with the organization in ESEA Premier Season 36 against an undetermined opponent.
Erik "penny" Penny was noticeably absent from today's announcement. Dust2.us has confirmed with Triumph that he still remains under contract with the organization at this time and that a public announcement about his future is still pending.
Triumph are now:
- Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman
- Brendan "Bwills" Williams
- Austin "Cooper-" Abadir
- Danny "czxi" Strzelczyk
- Wesley "viz" Harris
- Marcos "tacitus" Castilho (Coach)
- Erik "penny" Penny (Inactive)
