koosta will pick up the AWP duties on GX
Late last night an observant Reddit user noticed that Kenneth "koosta" Suen had joined the GX ESEA roster. Dust2.us has now confirmed with the team that koosta will indeed play for the squad, assuming the AWP role from Shawn "witmer" Taylor, who we reported had left the team last Thursday.
It was thought that Ricky "floppy" Kemery would be the new member of the team, and indeed he played with the squad in their first MDL match of the season, but koosta represents a game changing pick-up. koosta's last season at the Premier/MDL level was Season 19, and he has played Professional since with teams such as Enemy, Liquid, and CLG.
GX's roster is now:
- Braxton "swag" Pierce
- Keven "AZK" Lariviere
- Matt "Pollo" Wilson
- Josh "steel" Nissan
- Kenneth "koosta" Suen
- James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (Coach)
According to sources, Dust2.us believes that koosta is still under contract with the Counter Logic Gaming organization through April. His linking up with an MDL team will cast further question marks as to the fate of the ESL Pro League spot belonging to the organization.
GX are set to make their debut with their new AWPer tonight in ESEA MDL against the new-look Rise Nation squad.
