Swole Patrol add swag, MarkE

Swole Patrol are now at full strength with the additions of FYB duo Braxton "⁠swag⁠" Pierce and Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado, the team revealed on Twitter.

The duo will step into the shoes of Samuel "⁠SileNt⁠" Portillo and Derrick "⁠LILMAN⁠" Boyne, who departed Swole Patrol ahead of the ESEA MDL Playoffs and StarSeries i-League Season 6 North America qualifier.

With these changes, the North American team hope to turn around a poor run of form that saw them exit their last two LAN events, the ZOTAC Cup Masters Americas Final and the Americas Minor, without winning a single map.

swag links up with freakazoid in Swole Patrol

After FYB lost to Vision in the quarter-finals of the ESEA MDL Playoffs, swag and MarKE stepped into the Swole Patrol lineup to help the team compete in the StarSeries qualifier, in which they lost to NRG in the quarter-finals.

With the additions, Swole Patrol will have some time during the player break before getting back into the action, with ESEA MDL Season 29 matches set to start September 10th.

Swole Patrol now have the following line-up:

United States Ryan "⁠freakazoid⁠" Abadir
United States Austin "⁠Cooper-⁠" Abadir
United States Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro
United States Braxton "⁠swag⁠" Pierce
Mexico Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado

How the fck can they be top 6 NA ? 1 Liquid 2 NRG 3 C9 4-5 (these teams are close) : Rogue and coL 6 eUnited (i guess this NA ranking doesn't include brazilian teams that play in NA but some other Pro League were better than Swole like Ghost or Splyce - yeah they disbanded -, Dignitas as well). I would have Swole more like 8th or 9th in NA (not including brazilian teams MIBR and now Luminosity are better than Swole, NTC was better even though they were quite bad, and TeamOne as well). EDIT : Ghost is heavily down in the H2H against Swole but they had a Pro League slot though. Still can't see how Swole can be the 6th NA team.
