Tempest finalize roster with TR0JN
Tempest have quickly bounced back to full-strength with the addition of Alperen "TR0JN" Kilic, who fills the void left by the benching of Julien "Gurtzz" Grotegut a few days ago. The 19-year-old will round out the roster as the squad look to secure back-to-back ESEA Advanced playoff berths.
TR0JN's recruitment sees him link up with Kaan "KaKi" Bolukbas and co. one more time, with the youngster having been a part of the core roster for ESEA Seasons 37 and 38 while playing under the YeniCherry moniker.
During TR0JN's debut in Advanced during Season 37, the squad managed to impress by reaching the playoffs with a 11-5 regular season record. They ultimately suffered to close defeats to Coldest Riders and Infinity, to secure themselves a 13th-16th place finish. Unfortunately, the following season would prove to be one to forget for the Turkish-majority side as the team managed a meager 5-9 season record before TR0JN parted ways.
The team also enjoyed some success on LAN too, notably securing a 9th-12th placement at Fragadelphia 15 after losing to Party Astronauts and Infinity in the playoffs. At the event, TR0JN performed well individually, being the team's second-highest rated player with a 1.10 rating across nine maps.
Tempest now have:
Kaan "KaKi" Bolukbas
Ihsan "G3DITOR" Yigit
Michael "Brashi" Chadwick
Nicolas "C0C0" Nassoura
Alperen "TR0JN" Kilic
Suleyman "NForc3R" Savci (Tactical Coach)
Mare "iNfusioN3" R. (Performance Coach)
TR0JN marked his debut for Tempest last night with a 16-10 victory over New Threat, the side are now set to face Magic School Bus tomorrow at 10:00PM as they look to reach ESEA Advanced Season 40 playoffs.
