Brazen, Polar Ace South, Dogs of War, Lux, Faint, Buffdaddys Paypal Team, and Prospects have all made changes this week.

Another week has brought a plethora of changes to ESEA Advanced Season 33, as Brazen, Polar Ace South, Dogs of War, Lux, Faint, Buffdaddys Paypal Team, and Prospects have all updated their rosters. 

Following the departure of Adam "mada" Pampuch to Rugratz yesterday, Brazen have lost two more players, with Sean "naes" Fontaine leaving to join to Dogs of War and Brennan "grape" Greer making his way over to Polar Ace South.

As a result, Brazen are reduced to just:

  • United States Connor "chop" Sullivan
  • Canada Paul "aris" Wilson was told by the duo that they intend to stick together and will be rebuilding the roster. Currently Brazen sit towards the bottom of Advanced with a 4-7 record, possibly facing relegation if their new lineup doesn't start finding wins.

To make room for their new additions, Dogs of War have replaced Bobby "stamina" Eitrem, while Polar Ace South have parted ways with Antonio "AB" Benzan. Additionally, Polar Ace South have also replaced Marcos "tacitus" Castilho with Wesley "viz" Harris.

  • United States Zander "FIEND" Bates
  • United States Kyle "Wolffe" Greenfield
  • United States Sean "naes" Fontaine
  • United States Oliver "figment" Thompson
  • United States Troy "ara" Pollock
  • United States Christopher "Swahn" Swahn
  • United States Wesley "viz" Harris
  • United States Brennan "grape" Greer

Dogs of War and Polar Ace South both boast 8-4 records, with the two squads looking like favorites for playoffs.

Continuing on, AB has found a new home alongside Bradley "mickey" Waddington, with the pair joining Lux in place of Cameron "ohkee" Maccarrone and Matt "folgster" F.

With two new players, Lux are now:

  • United States "lunar"
  • United States Alexander "knightmare" Sozzi
  • United States "scourge"
  • Canada Antonio "AB" Benzan
  • United States Bradley "mickey" Waddington

Lux are one win outside of playoff contention at the moment with a 6-6 record following their loss to Lavender tonight.

After parting ways with Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk on Friday, Faint have refilled their ranks with former Rebirth player Ian "battery" Yates.

With this change, Faint are now:

  • United States George "Powerzz" Yaede
  • United States Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes
  • Canada Alex "vek" Voynov
  • United States Brian "Brian2K" Ladron
  • Canada Ian "battery" Yates
  • Canada Huthaifa "blitzz" Khan (Coach)

Faint are currently in first place with a 10-1 record, with their sole loss thus far being against Buffdaddys Paypal Team.

Speaking of Buffdaddys Paypal Team, the mix-team reminiscent of ESEA MDL Season 31's BLITZKRIEG have brought in former Monstars player Shawn "witmer" Taylor.

As a result, the team now features:

  • United States Nick "alter" Jackson
  • United States Noah "ULTRA" Giesbrecht

Rounding out this week’s major Advanced changes, Prospects have swapped Dylan "Hiki" O'Kane and Jon "taboo" Yi for former Super Nova player Lucas "CutzMeretz" Freitas and Stefan "Lacore" Paunovic. 

As a result, Prospects is now:

  • United States Josh "JoshRT" Lee
  • United States Anthony  "CLASIA" Kearney
  • United States Mike "real_bM" Desanto
  • Brazil Lucas "CutzMeretz" Freitas
  • United States Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk*
  • United States Jon "taboo" Yi (Inactive)

Prospects are one win out of first at the moment with a 9-3 record.

Update: Following the publication of this story, Prospects have decided to replace Lacore with former Faint player Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk. knows from sources close to the team that the decision remove Lacore was made due to the player allegedly trying out for different teams after joining Prospects.
