cxzi returns to Triumph as 3ARK00Z steps down
Omar "3ARK00Z" Elyyan has stepped down from Triumph and been replaced by Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk, Dust2.us has learned. The move marks the end of the Jordanian's tenure with Triumph after joining the lineup at the end of June.
3ARK00Z told Dust2.us that he decided to step down from Triumph due to not performing to his own expectations while on the lineup. In particular, 3ARK00Z noted the difficulty of playing the game while also communicating in English – having previously played on Arabic speaking teams prior to joining GGPR at the start of 2021. Despite not meeting his own expectations 3ARK00Z performed well on the server, posting a 1.09 rating over the course of 38 maps.
On the other side of the equation, cxzi rejoins Triumph after being released from the organization back in March. Of course, this new iteration of Triumph bears little relation to the one cxzi played with, as the organization is effectively defunct, and the tag is being used for free. Additionally, Brendan "Bwills" Williams is the only remaining player on Triumph from cxzi's first tenure.
With cxzi, Triumph are now:
- David "cynic" Polster
- Brendan "Bwills" Williams
- Jeff "RZU" Ngo
- Jeorge "jeorgesnorts" Endicott
- Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk
Triumph are set to play ESEA Premier Season 38 when it begins on August 17th.
