MarkE signs for Miami Flamingos

Edgar "MarkE" Jimenez has joined the Miami Flamingos on a permanent basis, the organisation have announced.

Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado will replace Cristian "Proxure" Rojas, who has parted company with the Miami Flamingos by mutual consent after his P-1 Visa application was denied a second time due to lack of information.

The Mexican player has been playing for the Miami Flamingos since the start of the month, when Proxure returned to Chile to wait for his visa to arrive.

MarkE joins the Miami Flamingos on a permanent basis

He possesses a solid amount of experience, having played for NRG for nearly six months before being benched by the team. During his time with the North American side, MarKE competed in the region's biggest leagues and also attended Copenhagen Games, where they finished 5th-8th.

"It was decided that we need order and stability and that we could not wait for a new answer from the US government, which could take weeks or even months," a statement from the Miami Flamingos reads.

"We would like to thank Cristian "Proxure" Rojas's commitment to the team, leaving his family behind and waiting for a decision that could change his life. We know the kind of stress that a situation like this entails.

"We regret that his visa was not accepted as he is a great player, one of the best Spanish-speaking players in the world. We wish him all the best."

The Miami Flamingos, who currently sit 10th in ESEA Premier, on a 4-2 record, now have:

Argentina Guillermo "guishorro" Areco
Argentina Jonathan "JonY BoY" Muñoz

Hope Proxure get some revenge for the Visa, he's such a good player
2017-06-26 21:22
Marke+Proxure would have been a great duo. Damn it. We all like proxure and wanted him to stay. Fuck US.

I was always a fan of Mark E. Smith's work in The Fall. Let's see if MarkE can replicate that success.

Brother, this is the best comment ever in HLTV Long live The Fall <3

Ayyy. Honestly, didn't expect anyone to catch on to that. Guess I was wrong! ;)
2017-07-01 15:10
And on top of that... i'm the coach of MF ;) That's why we play like we do (??) :D
2017-07-01 22:56
My man! Well, I wish you and the boys all the best. You have my full support, and I'll be keeping an eye out for your games in the near future, to be sure.
