eUnited inks Rise Nation quintet
Signing Rise Nation’s former core, eUnited is back in CS:GO with an MDL and ECS roster.
eUnited brought in Skyler "Relyks" Weaver and Michael "dapr" Gulino from free agency, and signed Kaleb "moose" Jayne, Will "dazzLe" Loafman, and Brandon "Ace" Winn from Rise Nation. Coaching the team, will be Jared "osorandom" Hartman, who was part of the organization's last roster in the organization and will now return with this new lineup.
According to Dust2.us, Rise Nation received less than the $60,000 they were hoping for the pair of moose and dazzLe. With this move, Andy "vSa" Xu, who had been dropped from the lineup after Rise Nation’s run at the last Global Challenge, has become a free agent.
"Our time with Rise was a learning experience for everyone. Almost none of our original five had ever played for a professional organization before, so it was a big step for all of us and we appreciate them for the support they gave.
"Disappointing results during the Pro League relegation tournament combined with differences of opinion between the players and the organization led to us not finding an agreement to re-sign and continue working together. Rise then pursued the options they had.
"Once that was settled we made our roster moves, initially snagging Relyks for Jonji, then dapr for vSa. These moves were great for us, Skyler brings so much experience and dapr FRAGS. eUnited reached out to Rise after we made those moves and had some results in MDL and other online stuff.
"The deal was finalized right around the start of the ECS Challenger Cup which we came out of with a spot in the next season of ECS. The combination of eUnited and our roster will propel us to the next level and we couldn’t be more excited :D"
The eUnited roster is now the following:
