MAKKA and oderus will round out The Pioneers roster

The Pioneers add oderus and MAKKA

In a sort of Ghost Academy reunion, kenny-1os- has also joined the team as a coach/manager.

Former Ghost Academy manager and coach Kenny "kenny-1os-" Dang has announced that he has joined up with new MDL side The Pioneers. Rounding out the previously announced trio of the team will be former Ghost Academy/BlackOut alumni Chad "oderus" Miller and Bryan "MAKKA" Drouillard.

The completed Pioneers roster is now:

  • United States Ryan "GRAMPZ" Baber
  • United States Tyler "tweiss" Weiss
  • Canada Connor "CONNOR93" Glover
  • United States Chad "oderus" Miller
  • United States Bryan "MAKKA" Drouillard
  • United States Kenny "kenny-1os-" Dang (Coach/Manager)

The team established themselves on the map (though using FPL star Edgar "MarKE" Jiminez instead of MAKKA) with a pair of strong qualifier showings, first ESL One Belo Horizonte, and DreamHack Austin over the weekend.

The surprise package of the DreamHack Austin qualification, The Pioneers took down compLexity and eUnited en route to the final. There, the new squad ran out of steam, and fell to Rogue 2-0.

The next season of ESEA MDL, in which The Pioneers will be competing, is set to start May 21st.

Yeah, I agree. He did very well and stream-sniping accusations aside, I like him a lot.

Hope he gets on another team soon. As for the Pioneers, they look pretty strong, and I want to see more of ‘em.
