Ghost eye Torqued trio

May 27th, 2018 02:12

Ghost Gaming are keen on signing the remaining members of the Torqued line-up, Dust2.us reports.

Ghost, who finished just one point above the relegation zone in the ESL Pro League, are looking to revamp their roster before the start of the new season, with Sebastian "seb" Bucki and Andy "vSa" Xu appearing to have their days with the team numbered.

With only two players left, Matthew "Wardell" Bowman and Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik, Ghost have reportedly set their sights on the Torqued line-up, currently depleted to just three members following the departures of Braxton "swag" Pierce and Keven "AZK" Lariviere.

steel, Pollo and koosta could be joining Ghost

Torqued captain Joshua "steel" Nissan is no stranger to the remaining Ghost players, having linked up with Wardell in the Bee's Money Crew team that finished in third place at Fragadelphia 11, and with Subroza at the CyberPowerPC Extreme Gaming Winter event.

It is currently unclear what will happen to Torqued's ESEA MDL spot in case the remaining team members sign for Ghost. According to Dust2.us, it is possible that the league spot will remain with swag and AZK.

Should the move to Ghost come to fruition, the team will make their first offline appearance at ESL One Belo Horizonte, from June 13-17, in the spot that the Torqued core hold after topping the North American qualifier.

Ghost's reported new line-up looks as follows:

Canada Matthew "Wardell" Bowman
Canada Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik
Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan
United States Matt "Pollo" Wilson
United States Kenneth "koosta" Suen

United States James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (coach)

Would rather Swag replace Pollo tbh, I'm guessing Koosta will rifle and secondary AWP, Koosta has rifled previously and hasn't been complete garbage
2018-05-27 02:56
Well swag won't come back sadly and this probably wasn't planned as originally it would have -azk +subroza. Though I do understand your sentiment and I don't know how well they can do with these two awpers. in the last version of CLG they had a similar double awp setup due to koosta sometimes "not feeling it" and being an inconsistent awper so this could actually benefit the team.
2018-05-27 05:58
fuck, that's a good lineup and incredible for it to happen like this

That’s why they adding LANKOOSTA. They use Wardell and Subroza to qualify for the LAN events and then Koosta and Steel win them.
2018-05-27 07:38
>ghost >win something Choose one
2018-05-27 15:17
gotta -koosta since you already have wardell aka best na awp on the roster =/
2018-05-27 05:46
??? Koosta better rating and he can drag at LAN LOOL
2018-05-27 07:39
Do they still get the EPL spot though? Considering that they only have the 2/5 players who qualified?
