junior reunites with Shakezullah for ESEA x FRAG Summer Cash Cup 3
While the player break is ongoing, many teams have taken the opportunity to field mixteams for this summer's ESEA x Fragadelphia Cash Cups. In that vein, Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman has reunited with former Bad News Bears teammates Michael "Swisher" Schmid and Paytyn "junior" Johnson to play this week's Cash Cup. Rounding out Shakezullah's squad, Ga$ Money, are ATK player Ian "motm" Hardy and benched 00 Nation player Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa.
This mixteam's core, alongside Gabe "Spongey" Greiner and Jonathan "Jonji" Carey, famously won Fragadelphia 15 over Party Astronauts in an action-packed grand finals — North America's first LAN event post-COVID.
This event will be junior's first since being benched from Complexity and will hopefully be a chance for him to relax and have an opportunity to dominate on the server against the lower level of opposiiton. It will also be an opportunity for malbsMd to keep his match fitness up after an extended amount of time on 00 Nation's bench. He is also relatively familiar playing with Shakezullah and co., having done so during the first ESEA Summer Cash Cup.
Despite the relative interconnectedness of the scene, this event will be motm's first time having played with junior or malbsMd, despite crossing paths with them many times over the years.
Ga$ Money consists of:
Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman
Michael "Swisher" Schmid
Paytyn "junior" Johnson
Ian "motm" Hardy
Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa
Shakezullah and friends will play in ESEA x FRAG Summer Cash Cup 3 when it starts today at 04:00PM.
