AZIO add quartet to complete line-up

AZIO have completed their roster with the additions of Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince, Joshua "⁠Hunter⁠" Madore, Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy, Ryan "⁠Snakes⁠" Amann, and coach Teric "⁠Bibby⁠" Ingram.

The additions come after AZIO recently parted ways with Alex "⁠Mauisnake⁠" Ellenberg and Dave "⁠seziwana⁠" Schrage, and moved Frankie "⁠NnyQuil⁠" Miranda to an analyst position, while also posting an application encouraging those with "MDL or pro experience" to apply as tryouts for the upcoming ESEA MDL season.

After five days of trials, AZIO brought in motm from Vireo.pro, Dignitas' Grim, and free agent Snakes - reuniting three of the ex-Broken Alliance core who won Season 25 of ESEA Main - as well as 21-year-old Hunter from FYB.

Grim is all smiles with his new team

Having completed their roster, AZIO went on to add a coach, bringing back a familiar face in the form of Bibby, who makes a return to coaching just three months after joining Alliance as an H1Z1 player.

Prior to the official announcement, Dust2.us reported that the team will play with William "⁠shonk⁠" Kittrell in their first eight MDL matches in order to retain the squad's league spot. After that, the team will replace the 19-year-old with Grim.

With the changes, AZIOs' roster looks as follows:

United States Trevor "⁠FrostayK⁠" Bandle
United States Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy
United States Joshua "⁠Hunter⁠" Madore
United States Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince
United States Ryan "⁠Snakes⁠" Amann
United States William "⁠shonk⁠" Kittrell

United States Teric "⁠Bibby⁠" Ingram (coach)

United States Frankie "⁠NnyQuil⁠" Miranda (analyst)

Really glad to see Grim and Snakes back together again ever since they were torn apart post-SoaR Gaming days way back. However, I'm kind of sad to see Vireo Pro lose motm. They had a good roster, but I'm sure they'll find someone equally good or better. AZIO actually have a roster that can do something now. No more being at the bottom of MDL :p

It helps to have a good ingame leader and an adult in the form of mCe to mold those kids. These things don't matter in NA though. Its all about the instant gratification
2018-08-10 21:38
Well, teams only wanted players who were 16+ due to the new age restriction that was put into effect the same season that SoaR Gaming qualified for MDL.

Same man...imagine what they could've been today. Maybe we'll see them rebuild the OG roster some day. On a side note, I miss the original roster in Open that made headlines after taking down some top Main and I think some MDL teams. The roster was yay, sick, recky, vice, and PAUL_Newman.

That's really nice. I've followed the NA "tier 2" scene since Nitro was a raging pleb and Tarik eating cereal in Mousespaz while rekting everyone :P both playing low tier CS. I didn't since then see a team with so much potential as old SoaR. especially Grim that can on a good day rekt everyone. Is there any way to follow your sucess as a team? etc adding you on steam? I would like to follow you guys.
