Denial remove anger, FugLy returns

December 17th, 2014 08:11

In a bizarre turn of events following the recent roster changes in NA, Denial have decided to remove Todd "anger" Williams and bring back Jacob "FugLy" Medina.

It didn't take long after yesterday's change, which saw Jacob "FugLy" Medina removed to make room for returnee Nick "nitr0" Cannella in Denial's roster, for the team to make another move following a defeat against LunatiK in MLG X-Games NA qualifier #1.

anger removed from Denial 

Fielding their new lineup for the first time, with both Eric "adreN" Hoag and nitr0 in action, Denial looked strong during the first map against LunatiK which they won in very convincing fashion, 16-2 on de_dust2.

However, they then fell on the following two maps, losing de_cache 6-16 and even de_overpass after a great T side (9-6) 13-16 overall.

Not more than 1 hour after the match ended, Todd "anger" Williams announced on his Twitter account that he was removed from the team in order for FugLy to make a return, citing his poor performance at ESEA Season 17 Global Finals as a reason for the move.

A member of the team confirmed this roster change to, which makes Denial's lineup look like this now:

United States Eric "adreN" Hoag
Canada Damian "daps" Steele
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina

Since they have now been eliminated from the first MLG X-Games qualifier, Denial will have to look to qualify for the Aspen event via the second qualifier scheduled for Sunday, December 21st.

Thank you lord, a change was needed after the loss to LtK
2014-12-18 03:43
why is this happening?
2014-12-17 08:12
Ukraine fallenaxe 
top team changed roster -> other teams kicked weak players and picked up free agents -> etc
2014-12-17 14:06
yeah but why -fugly -anger +fugly in one day? :D
2014-12-17 17:26
Cuz NA (''__'')
2014-12-17 17:59
anger was good when he stood in, now he's fucking garbage. Like hiko, he's underperforming, however Hiko left by himself. anger got kicked.
2014-12-17 20:58
And now Hiko is now performing pretty well as a stand in for ibp.

what a joke the NA scene is, ahahahahaha :D
2014-12-17 08:14
Fuck your racism. Look at Danish/UK/one of the other million countries in Europe with similar crap. Grow up cunt.
2014-12-17 16:35
Racism? That's really stretching the definition. It's just a simple observation - and not unjust at that - that the NA scene is just very.. not stable. Hopefully this will change in the future of course, it's for the better of all of CS if a region stabilizes. And yeah, Denmark has the same situation, though I think it might not be that bad if CPH Wolves can start getting together as a team and win. This would surely force the other Danish teams to step up their game.
2014-12-17 16:56
its the end of the lan season, every year after dhw the rosters are going to change because its the longest break between lans.
2014-12-17 18:03
Yeah that's of course going to remain, no doubt about that ;)
2014-12-17 18:42
dont worry, that dude just went full retard :D
2014-12-17 20:47
Yeah, I guess so ;D
2014-12-17 20:52
Stop being so mean, you shouldn't ever go full retard. Racist.
2014-12-19 00:38
What the fuck is going on
2014-12-17 08:15
According to steel isn't anger really two faced and emo. Probably got really upset after they lost and went to far on his insults or something.
2014-12-17 08:15
Anger is cancer and always cries when he dies, good riddance
2014-12-17 08:18

They should make a movie about the NA scene.
2014-12-17 08:22
Comedy staring Adam Sandler would be appropriate.
2014-12-17 08:44
2014-12-17 08:48
and then make a movie about the serbian scene next.......oh wait
2014-12-17 08:52
2014-12-17 09:39
yes that is exactly what the movie will be called
2014-12-17 09:42
It would be a boring one since we don't have that much drama here.
2014-12-17 10:01
It would be boring because you dont even have a semi pro team LOL

We had a great team, who had great results against top teams on lan.

If you just do the math and compare half a continent versus a country with only ~9 people in it, you would see that your comment is pointless.

2014-12-17 14:57
World cwew 
anger is his own worst enemy. He gets down on himself when he underperforms, he doesn't think critically about the game and he weirds some people out. He has good aim, but it's only good in DM. He needs to take a hard look at himself as a player, and works on being well rounded if he wants to come back.
2014-12-17 08:34
Yeah anyone that wears a hat 24/7... weirdo for sure

2014-12-17 08:41
LMAO, as if the NA scene wasn't enough of a joke.
2014-12-17 08:43
HLTV should just stop. All NA teams are basically trying out different rosters until the next season of ESEA.
2014-12-17 08:43
I doubt you have to make every change official if you're only "trying out" players. 23 player changes within 4 teams in 1 month can't be considered normal in any way.
2014-12-17 08:51
lol guitars.

ty and automatic i think (who got accused for cheating) :D But ty mate!

Make up your fucking mind Jesus.
2014-12-17 11:30
nitr0 is gonna dominate for this team. NAF-FLY is promising, adreN got experience and FugLy is imo a better fit than anger. What is daps role in this team? Is he the caller? Isn't adreN kind of a IGL or am I mistaken?
2014-12-17 11:58
daps was the IGL before Adren. now that Adren is there, i'm not real sure who is going to IGL
2014-12-17 14:07
Isee. Well, I hope adreN can focus on awping, and that daps can further improve as a IGL. Because if adreN was to both awp and call, I don't think daps would be a good fit as his fragging abilities isn't near the other three guys. What do you think?
2014-12-17 16:03
You sound right to me. I agree with you. If adreN can focus on AWPing, i think that would be really beneficial for the team.
2014-12-18 19:30
In-Denial apparently can't settle on a roster. This seems highly unlike a top organization to do....smh
2014-12-17 12:03

hahahahaha NA pls :D
2014-12-17 13:42
What makes me laugh with this is i read a topic when anger left TST saying that adreN should be mad at him because he left him to join another team even though he is wrong. But imagine if it were true and adren went to denial specifically to just kick anger from the team because he didn't do well in strats. xD
2014-12-17 13:45

Smart move, Fugly has upside, anger is pure garbage.
2014-12-17 19:00
LOOOOOOOOOOOOL Speaking of the change, Denial player Todd "anger" Williams had this to say: "It's a hard decision to do this but we feel nitr0 will be a better player in the long run. With him being an ex-teammate and winning the John Wick tournament with us we know that he will mesh well with our team already. This is by far the hardest decision this team has ever had to make but this is an opportunity that we can't pass up. FugLy is a great player and has a bright future ahead of him and I wish him the best of luck," Williams told And on the next day anger is out... ROFL
2014-12-17 19:09
2014-12-18 05:15
2014-12-17 19:52
Since you can't judge everything on one match, people need time to mesh and feel comfortable, it must have been a really bad day of practice.

That and anger, one of the most experienced players at ESEA LAN played like absolute garbage, getting out fragged by Titan's coach.

good, it should have always been this way anger is one of the most inconsistent players and useless on LAN. He isn't going to get any better too, FugLy will.
2014-12-17 22:38
Anger has been kicked from every team he's ever been on. Clearly something wrong with this guy.
2014-12-18 08:45
