Ascent add PwnAlone, Just Swing take on maazy and bring back Slash
Ascent have added Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue to their ESEA roster, with the veteran set to serve as a replacement for the recently departed Joshua "KiiroKami" Kim, Dust2.us has learned.
PwnAlone was last seen playing with ex-Singularity in ECS Season 8, although it seems to have been a more temporary setup for the organization before Singularity went on to pick up New Identity. Before that, he played in Party Astronauts, who finished fourth in MDL Season 31.
As a result, Ascent's new roster is as follows:
- Marc-Andre "NiSMO" Tayar
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Lucas "Fiziq" Blow
- Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Justin "NEX" McLellan (Coach)
As for Just Swing, Carlos "maazy" Bandle and Chris "Slash" Petersen have been added to fill the spots left by Ryan "Winsum" Johns and Matthew "nero" Seymour.
Slash was previously on Just Swing, but was removed before the start of MDL Season 32, and has spent the last month with Reign in Advanced before making the move back to MDL. maazy last played on Jared "MAC-1" Schneider's Gorilla Gang, before being removed for Aleksandar "ALEKSANDAR" Hinojosa.
With these moves, Just Swing look as follows:
- Joel "jcrueL" Cruel
- Tommy "Axed" Ryan
- Adam "Ange" Milian
- Chris "Slash" Petersen
- Carlos "maazy" Bandle
Just Swing have played five matches in MDL so far, and have yet to win one. While not scheduled yet, they still will need to face the likes of MAC-51, The Quest, and Riot Squad as they fight to avoid relegation.
