Third Impact complete lineup with D4rtyMontana and mesamiduck
After losing Jack "xCeeD" Holiman and parting ways with James "JAM" H., Third Impact have completed their rebuild with the addition of Matthew "D4rtyMontana" Paplawskas and Austin "mesamiduck" Dardar.
Last season, D4rtyMontana played as a stand-in for Strife during ESL Challenger League Season 40, posting a 0.91 rating over seventeen maps. The young player will look to improve on his performance last season with the added benefit of being able to integrate into the team's systems as opposed to being added on an ad-hoc basis.
As for mesamiduck, his addition to the ECL roster marks the player's rapid rise through ESEA's divisions, winning Main during Season 39 and going on to reach playoffs during his first season in Advanced with Rectify.
Keanu "Danejoris" Reyes told Dust2.us that the team decided to take the chance on the relatively inexperienced IGL due to a lack of available IGLs with ECL experience.
Third Impact are now:
Jeff "RZU" Ngo
Brennan "grape" Greer
Keanu "Danejoris" Reyes
Matthew "D4rtyMontana" Paplawskas
Austin "mesamiduck" Dardar
Third Impact are currently competing in the first IEM Dallas open qualifier. So far, they have made it to the top sixteen and are facing off against mesamiduck's former teammates on Rectify.
