Splyce Does Major Rework of Their Overwatch Roster
After being locked into their roster for several months due to ELEAGUE, and now no longer being in the Overwatch Open, Splyce has recently taken the this down time to make major changes their team by switching out two-thirds of their players.
“ShaneisGhost” has already left his temporary spot with Splyce, and now Nicholas “ninjanick” Poulos, Matthew “clockwork” Dias, and Ryan “SycknesS” Mitchell have also said goodbye to the team, and they obviously had to be replaced. Remy “ADETONIAN” Cabresin, Kevin “Moffitt” Moffitt, and Martin “Graceful” Wongprom have stepped in as support, dps, and flex respectively.
Splyce just barely squeezed themselves into the Overwatch Open through their accumulation of points in the qualifiers. As a result, this locked their roster for nearly two months at a crucial time, as they were missing a tank player. When they attended the tournament at Atlanta they at least had ShaneisGhost as a stand in tank, but the team was pretty much destroyed without taking a win against EnVyUs or against NRG.
So, without having to focus on a major tournament, Splyce’s Pro Overwatch team has taken this much needed time to switch out over half of the roster. Also, three of the new players are from Europe, which will make Splyce another mixed-region team for Overwatch.
Team captain and support players Bradford “PYYYOUR” Ross briefly spoke about the recent changes saying:
“It has been a rough road since our in game caller decided to focus on his tennis career instead of dedicating an exorbitant amount of hours into a video game career. We are reaching a point where ‘ladder’ players are truly catching up to the ‘known names’ that have been playing since closed beta. Since Eleague we have had the opportunity to look at tons of players from Europe, Brazil, and even the remote area of le reddit. We will be parting ways with SycknesS, Ninjanick, and Shaneisghost for varying reasons and will be picking up Moffitt, Graceful, Twidi, and Adetonian. As for clockwork, you guys better strap in, cause some hotness is around the corner :)”
The new Splyce roster is as follows:
|Kevin “Moffitt” Moffitt||DPS|
|Canaan Michael “Shrugger” Carman||DPS|
|Martin “Graceful” Wongprom||Flex|
|Jussi “twidi” Tiipiö||Tank|
|Remy “ADETONIAN” Cabresin||Support|
|Bradford “PYYYOUR” Ross||Captain | Support|
