Rugratz add mada; New England Whalers lose Fiziq; ReckMONSTER returns to Monstars
With ESEA MDL Season 33 reaching its fourth week, Rugratz, New England Whalers, and Monstars have all made roster changes as the roster lock nears closer and closer.
Starting off with Rugratz, the team have brought on Adam "mada" Pampuch as a permanent replacement for Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro. mada was originally linked with the team yesterday due to Zellsis trialing for a new team. Since then, Zellsis has joined eUnited's ESEA roster all but confirming his departure from the team.
As a result, Rugratz are now:
- Joshua "Hunter" Madore
- Erik "penny" Penny
- Nathan "leaf" Orf
- Alex "zander" Diaz
- Adam "mada" Pampuch
mada will make his debut with Rugratz on March 5th in ESEA MDL Season 33 against Swole Identity at 8PM EST.
As for Monstars, after bringing in Jeff "RZU" Ngo as Ethan "ReckMONSTER" Serrano's replacement due to the latter getting in trouble with his parents for failing a driving test (no really), ReckMONSTER has returned to the roster. Dust2.us knows that RZU will be retained for the time being in case ReckMONSTER is unable to play in the future.
As such, Monstars are now:
- Ian "tex" Botsch
- Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce
- Mike "Swisher" Schmid
- Josh "shinobi" Abastado
- Ethan "ReckMONSTER" Serrano
- Justin "JMaldo" Maldonado (Coach)
- Jeff "RZU" Ngo (Backup)
Monstars next match is scheduled for February 27th at 9PM EST against LiViD.
Rounding out tonight's changes, Lucas "Fiziq" Blow has stepped down from New England Whalers.
The move ends Fiziq's six-month tenure with the team, having joined the squad before the start of Season 32 and ultimately helping them reach playoffs.
As a result, New England Whalers are reduced to four players although it is worth noting that Daniel "roca" Gustaferri is yet to be officially announced by the organization.
Without Fiziq, New England Whalers' roster is for the moment:
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
- Linus "Limpone" Wecksell (Coach)
New England Whalers will have to act fast to find a replacement as they are currently scheduled to take on Divine tomorrow at 8PM EST.
