witmer and sancz return to activity in RONIN

After some time on the sidelines, witmer and sancz return to activity to play the 28th season of MDL with RONIN.

RONIN, who ended 5-8th in Season 27 and recently saw Stephen "⁠reltuC⁠" Cutler and Jeff "⁠RZU⁠" Ngo leave the team, will fill in the empty spots with Shawn "⁠witmer⁠" Taylor and Joshua "⁠sancz⁠" Ballenger, two players that had been laying low for several months.

witmer will make his return in RONIN

The last time witmer played was at Mad City: Chicago, in February, one month after he failed to make it to Pro League with GX, while sancz hasn't played an official match since summer of last year when his Pnda finished tenth in MDL Season 25.

The two players will now go from being errant knights to being RONIN, and will wander the lands of ESEA with David "⁠Xp3⁠" Garrido, Collin "⁠wrath⁠" McSweegan, and Dylan "⁠RIKO⁠" Sabin-Arnce, trying to earn a spot in the Global Challenge LAN by finishing top three.

With the addition of witmer and sancz, RONIN's lineup is:

France David "⁠Xp3⁠" Garrido
United States Collin "⁠wrath⁠" McSweegan
United States Dylan "⁠RIKO⁠" Sabin-Arnce
United States Shawn "⁠witmer⁠" Taylor
United States Joshua "⁠sancz⁠" Ballenger

United States Kyle "⁠flowsicK⁠" Mendez (coach)

witmer is trash tbh. Look at his stats and see his ego in rank s. Always asking tarik to give him his spot in C9. Just stupid. Bad player.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel. witmer is god awful and a total loser. Why is there news of this? It's like reporting CAL-o roster moves.
