Ronin return with lineup featuring Jonji, Xp3

Professeur
January 24th, 2018 00:03

After being without a roster since mid-2017, the North American organization Ronin assembled a new lineup headed by David "Xp3" Garrido.

The core of the roster played their first matches at the beginning of the month, but only finalized their five-man lineup today, a day after competing in the IEM Katowice 2018 Open Qualifier where they ended 5-8th.

It didn't take Jonji long to find a new home after his Rise Nation exit

The team will feature the 30-year-old veteran David "Xp3" Garrido, Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce, who recently had a stint in NRG, and three very young players. The eldest of them is Jonathan "Jonji" Carey with 18, Jeff "REZU" Ngo and Collin "wrath" McSweegan are 17 and 16, respectively. While this is REZU's biggest team yet, the other two players have experience at this level: Jonji made his breakthrough with Rise Nation and wrath was a member of Rogue last year, but ended up leaving the team in dramatic fashion.

Rounding up the roster is Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez, who will be acting as the coach. RONIN's main competition, for the time being, will be the ESEA MDL Season 27, which they will kick off in a couple hours against Orion.

RONIN will be represented by the following lineup:

France David "Xp3" Garrido
United States Collin "wrath" McSweegan
United States Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce
United States Jeff "REZU" Ngo
Canada Jonathan "Jonji" Carey

United States Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez (coach)

Who df are these kids?? I 've been following cs since vp win their major and the only guy I ever heard of is xp3, so I'm asking why are you guys making a post about these tier 2000 thousand players. I mean Mrs Harvey been to more lans and have more achievement than them. I have nothing against her I just use her as an example, she is 1000 times better than me and I will never be better than her.
2018-01-24 01:20
flowsick was in liquid when they first made their csgo team and jonji had a pretty good MDL with Rise Nation last season
2018-01-24 01:43
why did they kick jonji
2018-01-24 06:20
He is idiot...just pushing and dying like a retard.
2018-01-24 13:04
Read the name of the website and then comment again. Doesn't matter what level you think they are at.This website reports news about CS:Go, not news about whatever EseaRwsWh()re likes. Get over yourself and thanks!

wasn't this posted 2 weeks ago with a team signing 1 year contracts? or have they already changed roster
2018-01-24 01:53
Wow this is interesting roster change. From my point of view they have so many firepower for tier 1000 team. I hope to see their progress as a team in online & LAN match. Hopefully they become one of top 10 team next year. Best of luck
