3ARK00Z is hoping to land a spot on a new team
Omar "3ARK00Z" Elyyan has stepped down from GGPR's active roster, Dust2.us has learned.
The team's Premier season got off to a rough start, falling 0-2 in their opening match to Oceanus, where they were forced to use backup Brandon "YuZ" Cyr for Michael "Turismo" Haas. 3ARK00Z had previously had a strong showing against the same squad in the open qualifier for DreamHack Open January, posting a 1.59 rating and 47-29 K-D despite losing the match in overtime, but GGPR as a whole were unable to get much going in their Premier rematch.
When contacted by Dust2.us, 3ARK00Z confirmed that he will step down from the roster and play as a sixth man while he awaits an offer from another team. He stated that while the team "helped him", the situation as a whole "did not work." He is the second player to leave the starting lineup after Turismo was kicked last week after failing to play in their Premier match against Oceanus.
With 3ARK00Z stepping down, GGPR's roster looks as follows:
- Chase "lowrider" Releford
- Evan "Creed" Dao
- Jeorge "jeorgesnorts" Endicott
- Erich "ninja" Beyer (Coach)
- Jake "eXotic" Vaupell (Backup)
- Brandon "YuZ" Cyr (Backup)
- Omar "3ARK00Z" Elyyan (Backup)
GGPR are set to face off against Rise tonight at 9 PM EST, and will likely field two stand-ins as they begin the search for two new players to refill their ranks.
