witmer and sancz run in to RONIN
Shawn "witmer" Taylor and Joshua "sancz" Ballenger have both returned from semi-retirement to play for RONIN in Season 28 of MDL, witmer announced on Twitter earlier today. This completes RONIN's roster following the departure of Stephen "reltuC" Cutler and Jeff "REZU" Ngo.
Both sancz and witmer have seen little in the way of active play recently, with the former having not competed in an official match since August of last year. His last matches saw his team Pnda finish in tenth place for MDL Season 25.
In the meantime, witmer has been a little more active, competing under the x1 Mob banner at Mad City: Chicago in February despite annoucing his retirement the week prior. He cited a lack of drive to play the game in a dedicated team environment despite having a passion for the game, claiming "I’m more of a free flowing, love for the game, more emotional [player] as opposed to logical."
With the return of sancz and witmer, RONIN's roster is now:
- David "Xp3" Garrido
- Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce
- Collin "wrath" McSweegan
- Joshua "sancz" Ballenger
- Shawn "witmer" Taylor
- Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez (Coach)
