Axed's departure comes after Secret Club's exit from the DreamHack Open March Closed Qualifier
Secret Club have cut Tommy "Axed" Ryan from their lineup, seeing Axed exit the team eleven days after linking up with the top Premier side.
In his short time with Secret Club, the team enjoyed modest success claiming wins over the likes of ImPerium, Third Impact, and HeadShotKings, while losing close series to RBG and Recon 5.
Regarding Axed's removal from the lineup, Adam "WolfY" Andersson told Dust2.us that it came down to a difference in visions about how to play the game but would offer no further details.
Axed meanwhile declined to comment on the reasons for his removal, mentioning that he only found out very suddenly last night when a friend alerted him that he had been removed from Secret Club's ESEA roster. He also noted that he believes Anthony "CLASIA" Kearney and Jordan "jitter" Ruggiero are "beasts" and spoke positively about their aspirations of becoming pro players. Additionally he shouted out Trevor "FrostayK" Bandle saying that the two are still close friends.
With Axed out of the project, Secret Club are now:
- Jordan "jitter" Ruggiero
- Anthony "CLASIA" Kearney
- Adam "WolfY" Andersson
- Victor "v1c" T.
- Trevor "FrostayK" Bandle
Secret Club's next outing, now without their coach, is set to be a rematch against Recon 5 in ESEA Premier Season 36 on March 3rd.
