neptune reunites with Ghost

Jason "⁠neptune⁠" Tran has been added to Ghost's lineup to replace Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend after turning 16 and becoming eligible to play ESL Pro League, dust2.us reports.

The 16-year-old had previously been a part of Ghost, but was benched in 2017 after it was revealed he was only 15 years old and thus ineligible to play. The move had implications for the North American team, as they had just qualified for EPL Season 6, prompting them to bring on Dallas "⁠Dallas⁠" Micks.

neptune turned 16 ten days ago and has reportedly been trying out for Ghost for some time, as he joined the team's ESEA roster and starting lineup yesterday.

neptune is now actually 16 years old

Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan's squad has been on the lookout for a new fifth for a while, after kRYSTAL's time as a temporary member passed. In recent months, Ghost have been on an upwards curve, as the team surprised everyone at the Zotac Cup Masters 2018 in Shanghai, where they upset OpTic and also beat Natus Vincere in an overtime best-of-one at DreamHack Masters Stockholm.

The North American side's first showing with their new lineup will be October 2nd, where they go up against MIBR in their opening match of ESL Pro League Season 8. With neptune now old enough to join the team, Ghost have the following roster:

Canada Matthew "⁠WARDELL⁠" Yu
Canada Yassine "⁠Subroza⁠" Taoufik
Canada Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan
United States Kenneth "⁠koosta⁠" Suen
United States Jason "⁠neptune⁠" Tran

Not that he is toxic. He underperformed in all of those 3 teams.

Exactly. Don't even know about him as a team mate but he was terrible statwise
2018-09-26 00:03
He put out a twitlonger and to quote from it "In the end I was told it most likely wouldnt work out and ghost approached it very professional and steel talked to me about it." So it sounds like it definitely wasn't a result of toxicity rather other issues. Twitlonger: twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqlscl

bring a pug bot to replace krystal after that performance n1
2018-09-25 12:02
Krystal like didn't go positive once. They need more firepower if they want to compete t1
2018-09-25 13:47
they rather have a good igl to compete at tier 2 bro , neptune doesent have enough firepower to even compete vs tier 2 / 3 teams he has no exprience to play vs higher teams but krystal does
2018-09-25 13:55
They have steel for igl
2018-09-25 14:45
Neptune was the one that got ghost to epl. I but you in a million years Krystal couldn't do that. There was a reason he was benched from a t3 team
