He played on metizport and did pretty ok but wasn't quite good enough to stick around

Probably better than a lot of na fill players atm but nothing special unlike phzy

This could be very interesting, though I hate to see SLIGHT kicked from the team. I doubt he will remain without a team for long though.

Wouldn't say this is the upgrade they might think it is but an upgrade nonetheless. Hoping to see Stanislaw back in Tier 1 so if this is what it takes then I'm all for it but the Wildcard roster was already on a good trajectory as it is so I hope this doesn't set them back.
