Grim looks to Triumph once again; Bad News Bears add dapr
Dust2.us has learned that Ryan "Snakes" Amann has stepped down from the active roster of Triumph, with the team adding Michael "Grim" Wince from Bad News Bears as his replacement. In turn, Bad News Bears have acquired the services of former Getting Info member Michael "dapr" Gulino.
Grim's move to Triumph reunites him with Logan "Voltage" Long and Gabe "Spongey" Greiner, having played with the duo on Triumph and The Quest in the past two seasons. Meanwhile, dapr once again links up with the trio of Peter "ptr" Gurney, Mitch "mitch" Semago, and Austin "crashies" Roberts after previously joining the Riot Squad roster in mid-June 2019, although his stint at the time was short-lived as he chose to depart for New Identity just two weeks later.
Dust2.us knows that Snakes will continue to remain on the Triumph roster as a backup, having stepped down of his own accord due to personal reasons. Fortunately, neither team will face roster lock issues in their upcoming Americas Minor NA Closed Qualifier appearances from March 3-5 as a result of all the players being on teams that were invited to participate.
As such, the roster for the two teams now looks as follows:
|Triumph||Bad News Bears|
As a result of dapr's departure, Getting Info are left with the following three players on their roster, with only the first two having paid their league fees:
- Will "dazzLe" Loafman
- Maxim "wippie" Shepelev
- Jack "xCeeD" Holiman
It is unknown whether Getting Info will look to add another two to their squad, or if the remaining players will go their separate ways. The team would presumably be required to bring on Collin "wrath" McSweegan as one of those two players in order to keep their spot in the league, at least for eight out of their first nine matches, leaving them with relatively few options going forward.
