Disconnected plug in ECL S43 lineup
Following the dramatic departure of two players, the core formerly known as BHOP has a new name, new faces, and are looking for a new home for ESL Challenger League Season 43.
With the two parties not re-signing after a fair bit of drama, the ex-BHOP lineup will be referred to as Disconnected as they look for an org. Despite the drama ensnaring the scene for a couple days, the team have largely moved past it heading into Season 43.
One half of the new duo is former Strife rifler Matthew “D4rtyMontana” Paplawskas. The 18-year-old spend the bulk of the current Major cycle with Strife, ending his stint with a 0.95 rating over 34 official maps. D4rtyMontana’s tenure with Strife ended on a high note with his two best events back to back.
Rounding out the lineup is Tianyi “Fr3nk1e” He, who joins the team after a brief stint on Brazen. The bulk of his play with Brazen came during ECL S42, where the rifler ended the eleven maps with a 0.97 rating.
The lineup will have to prepare for Challenger League competition in Group B against the likes of ATK, Nouns, and Villainous, the team that signed Brody “BeaKie” Kelly after his removal from BHOP. Their first match is scheduled for November 2nd versus Nouns.
Disconnected’s S43 ECL lineup is:
Silas "silas" Marrufo
Paul "aris" Wilson
Christopher "Swahn" Swahn
Tianyi “Fr3nk1e” He
Matthew “D4rtyMontana” Paplawskas
Szymon "LAJT" Jaworski (Coach)
Mark "CooperTrooper" Cooper (Assistant Coach)
