Triumph and Reign see old faces return, Big Rods join Oxygen Supremacy, and more
Another week has passed, and with it more Advanced roster changes as the season chugs along.
First off, we have Jack "jack" Hughett and Rafael "clone" Singer having reunions of sorts with the former Main AWP core, now known as Triumph. Interestingly, when clone last joined the squad in mid-August alongside Paul "saiyo" Saiyo, jack was one of the players who made way for the duo.
With the change, Triumph are:
- Alex "Obs1dian" Conrad
- Stephen "Huston" Huston
- Paul "saiyo" Saiyo
- Jack "jack" Hughett
- Rafael "clone" Singer
- Mark "markalodon" Rose (Coach)
Triumph are currently 2-2 with matches coming up against vitrioL, Brazen, and Reign.
Coming off of a 7-8th place finish at Fragadelphia 13, Big Rods have found a new home with Oxygen Supremacy.
Oxygen Supremacy are:
- Rod "RodZombie" Baarstad
- Filip "Feedalee" Mitevski
- Talen "Talen" Mackinnon
- Zach "Polarbear" Reynolds
- Erik "KP" Lytle
Unfortunately for Oxygen Supremacy, they have not been as successful during the Advanced season as at Fragadelphia, and currently sit at 1-4.
Thunder Logic were left one man down after Matthew "nero" Seymour's move to Just Swing caused a ripple effect and saw Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk jump to Faint. The team has now been made whole with the addition of Dominick "JazzPimp" Dimpfel, who has been sidelined since the dissolution of Holo.
Thunder Logic now have the following roster:
- Sean "Zevro" Hartnett
- Sean "Inseaniac" Morrison
- Nathan "rabbit" Beale
- Bryce "PureR" Lovell
- Dominick "JazzPimp" Dimpfel
- Brian "BrianD" Daniels (Coach)
With the dissolution of ex-Final Feature, Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes and Chris "Slash" Petersen have returned to Reign, alongside George "Powerzz" Yaede. Making way for the trio are Roberto "shams" Pareja and "VolcaN", with the recently added Paolo "pao" Lopes moving to a backup/coach position.
Reign now have the following roster:
- Toryon "KLUMZ" Kelley
- Gabriel "GMAN" Ordaz
- Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes
- Chris "Slash" Petersen
- George "Powerzz" Yaede
- Paolo "pao" Lopes (Backup/Coach)
The hope to make a serious run at MDL with the changes, but first will have to staunch the bleeding of a two-loss streak that sees them holding a 2-3 record.
The final notable change sees veteran player Corey "flashstep" Parks link up with iNTACT as their new coach. flashstep was last spotted playing with Neon Black in Season 31 before taking a step back from playing due to his new role as Director of Esports at Defiance College.
iNTACT's roster is now:
- Carson "nosraC" O'Reilly
- Alexander "retrQ" Kadan
- Riley "Reality" Fusch
- Austin "AAustiN" Urb
- Caleb "opportunity" Davis
- Nassir "rugrat" Francique (Stand-in)
- Corey "flashstep" Parks (Coach)
iNTACT have had a strong start to the season, currently sitting at a 5-0 record. They will be tested in the coming weeks as they are set to take on the 5-0 Gorilla Gang and the 4-1 Drawn to Fulfillment.
