Strife part ways with SATURN and brett
Strife have parted ways with Dylan "SATURN" Finch, seeing the player exit the lineup after seven months with Recon5/Strife. While SATURN is looking for a new team to call home, he has joined Orgless as a sixth-man. Brett "brett" Rhein is also no longer with the team, ending a tenure that began in November of last year after making the jump from Third Impact.
During ESEA Premier Season 39, SATURN, as Strife's joint-second highest rated player, posted a modest 0.98 rating alongside Keller "SLIGHT" Nilan in the team's 2-5 regular season. In ESEA Premier Season 39 Relegation, SATURN posted a far more flattering rating, helping his team qualify to ESL Challenger League Season 40 with a 1.24 rating over seven maps. brett netted a 0.88 rating during the regular season, but sported a 1.10 rating in Relegation.
SATURN told Dust2.us that he decided to join Orgless as he believes it is an opportunity to learn from the experienced lineup and bide his time until a Premier team is looking for a new fifth.
Dust2.us knows that Strife are actively looking for replacements for SATURN and brett, among the leading candidates are X13's Paul "aris" Wilson and former Triumph player Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk.
Strife are now:
Keller "SLIGHT" Nilan
David "J0LZ" Jolin
Bobby "stamina" Eitrem
Christian "crisby" Schmitt (Coach)
Thomas "klank" Mennemeyer (Assistant Coach/Analyst)
ESL Challenger Season 40 is currently underway, although matches are unlikely to start until next week.
