The addition of the 24-year-old comes after eUnited signed the former Cloud9 captain Pujan "FNS" Mehta to lead the team, while Skyler "Relyks" Weaver, who recently took up the AWP'ing role, is believed to moved to the bench.
Going the other way, Ace will be loaned out for the remainder of ESEA MDL Season 29 to Swole Patrol, where Cooper- played with his brother Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir.
Cooper- officially joins eUnited
Shortly after Dust2.us and HLTV.org reported on the move, freakazoid took to Twitter and his personal stream to emotionally vent about the team's loss of his brother to eUnited.
On camera, freakazoid revealed that Cooper- had initially been contacted by the organisation "three to four weeks ago", where he allegedly turned the offer down, before they sent him a better one when Swole Patrol went to play EPICENTER 2018:
The addition of Cooper- means that eUnited will have the following lineup going forward:
Pujan "FNS" Mehta
Will "dazzLe" Loafman
Michael "dapr" Gulino
Kaleb "moose" Jayne
Austin "Cooper-" Abadir
Jared "osorandom" Hartman - Coach
Skyler "Relyks" Weaver - Inactive
As the North American shuffle includes a loan out of Ace to Swole Patrol, freakazoid's squad looks as follows for the time being:
Braxton "swag" Pierce
Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir
Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado
Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro
Brandon "Ace" Winn
