eLevate bring in RUSH

eLevate have signed former Homeless member Will "RUSH" Wierzba to replace  Zach "TM" Miller, according to ESEA News.

The former Exertus team, now playing under the wings of eLevate after the two organisations merged, are on the verge of qualifying for the ESEA Finals as they currently sit second in the league on a 9-4 record.

In the other tournaments, however, things have not been going their way, having been eliminated in the FACEIT League qualifiers at the hands of Mobility, while in CEVO-P they are already out following defeats against NetcodeGuides and Justus Pro.


Warden & Storm have a new team-mate

It seems now that the recent poor run of results has resulted in eLevate swapping Zach "TM" Miller, who had been with the team since ESEA Season 15, with former Homeless member William "RUSH" Wierzba.

This means that eLevate now have the following roster:

United States Matt "Warden" Dickens
United States Derek "desi" Branchen
United States Tyler "Storm" Wood
France David "Xp3" Garrido
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba

meh storm and warden arent that good anymore, probably because they both have full time jobs. elevate lives and dies by the way desi plays
2014-09-13 19:01
Yeah I just remember these guys from 1.6 and they were really good. I wanna see them come back for real, not just play in an "adequate" team you know.
2014-09-13 19:04
Both are legends but yeah... finding motivation to be your best in cs while holding down a full time job ect is hard. ad least they are legends in 1.6(the best version of cs by miles) peace.

2014-09-14 09:05
Are you retarded or just American? I guess both? xD shit on all of europe? I guess you forgot an NA team has never won an event xD And nip beat c9 xDDD cyaaa and ibp went out in group stages XDd ha ha xD Sweden>world so stfu xD
2014-09-14 18:20
Except IBP won Esea Finals u dumb fucking swede, and c9 came in 2nd, they SHIT ON ALL EURO TEAMS...Also i forget what tourney it was a few months ago but c9 shit on every team in europe, they didnt win but they finished 3rd while beating every european team at the tourney....
2014-09-15 07:02

2014-09-13 19:12
seeeeya tm
2014-09-13 19:18
Now replace this inconsistent Xp3 kid with fRoD, mix in some more practice from Storm + Warden to get it back to how they were in 1.6, and you have yourselves an NA team capable of beating any team on LAN.
2014-09-13 19:29
We can dream right?
2014-09-13 21:10
storm and warden need to get replaced. xp3 and desi are the only good ones
2014-09-13 19:29
Warden was a beast in 1.6, same with Storm, both absolute rifle beasts, so they're definitely capable. Warden is just going to be a bit worse because of doing the ingame leading/strat calling duties. In 1.6 on complexity, he was a main entry killer/fragger (sort of like their Friberg equivalent), never called strats. They also don't have anywhere near as much hours playing GO then other invite players. Also, I think Xp3 is really over-rated. He is really inconsistent from what I've seen.. Always opposite ends of the spectrum.
2014-09-13 19:33
Warden and storm haven't been beasts in 1.6 since pre-CGS. After the CGS (they were below average in that btw) they came back to 1.6 and were pretty bad internationally. So you're talking about them being good like 8-10 years ago. They're about as old as HeatoN.

Rush is top6 NA 1 - Shahzam 2 - mOE 3 - hiko 4 - n0thing 5 - swag 6 - rush
2014-09-13 19:34
Shroud not in there? He's probably top 10 in the world right now (if not top 5). Shahzam isn't even LAN proven either. If anything I'd put Skadoodle over Shahzam though, not that Ska is much better, just has a bit more LAN xp and is slightly better online. Also I probably wouldn't even put n0thing in top 5 NA anymore after his performance at ESL cologne. He was looking like more of a support player then the fragger n0thing we're used to from 1.6. Really looking for him to redeem himself at the next major LAN. :D
2014-09-13 19:47
he's probably trolling though
2014-09-13 19:44
2 - m0E..... yeah hes trolling xD
2014-09-13 22:52
Shroud isn't even top 25 in the world. What kind of a delusional statement is that? You say n0thing isn't top 5 NA because of one performance but place shroud in top 5 globally with two mediocre LANs?
2014-09-14 01:33
top 10 world? are you joking? he's been to _ONE_ LAN xD are you delusional? I'm gonna name a few players that is more experienced and a lot better than shroud; flusha, gtr, f0rest, edward, byali, snax, guardian, JW, olofmeister, krimz.. I can go all day naming people who's better than your only good player xD
2014-09-14 18:23
i can find 20 guys that are better than rush in premier main and open. wtf you on about? 1-shazham is fucking cancer, nobody fucking likes him 2-mose is overrated. 3-hiko good 4-nothing is inconsistent and just a normal dude on go. he only gets it going for a match in every 15 matches. 5- swag no.1 6-rush lollöl
2014-09-13 20:24
You didn't even mention JDM? JDM is better than everyone you named in that list.
2014-09-14 20:43
ahh not my list. its the list of the guy above me. also jdm? jdm good. best rifling awper na. but is he better than swag or hiko? no. he is imo overall better than nothing, seangares and maybe dazed. but he is nowhere near the other dudes on c9 and ibp. also cutler>jdm skillwise but cutlers an asshole and jdm is the nicest guy ever.

2014-09-13 20:23
actually tm was pretty decent along with desi. storm and xp3 were absolute shite. warden is ok but nowhere near his former self and still cocky as ever. hopefully he will get his fat ass kicked by jdm in the near future. and according to that fat fuck on esea forums, it seems tm left on his own.

I still think it's a bad idea to kick TM, TM is still a very good player and carries when you need him too. Storm or Warden should get kicked

tm is a total piece of shit, played with him on MM with xp3 and sunman and he was the biggest douchebag, sunman and xp3 were nice and didnt really say much but tm was talking shit the entire time to everyone...

I just have a question for da NA people, a little off topic I guess. But, how can moe be considered good? I've watched his stream a couple of times and he really suck, like he really do suck. He doesn't even look close to a pro level. It's kind of emberrassing to see him getting so many viewers on twitch..
2014-09-14 18:26
getting viewers on twitch has nothing to do with how good you are
2014-09-14 20:36
Yea, but he seems to be regarded as good in the NA scene?
2014-09-14 23:45
I would kick Warden he didn't do anything for them this season or last, he is clearly the anchor in that team. His experience doesn't matter because they'll never qualify for a lan event so why keep him? I'm pretty sure not a single person cares about what they won in Source they're terrible now.
2014-09-14 20:41
He was one of the best entry fraggers of all time in CS 1.6... wake up.
