dazzLe confirms eUnited benching

Will "dazzLe" Loafman is no longer on eUnited's starting roster, the player has confirmed.

In a Twitlonger post, the 23-year-old shed light on the team's decision to move him to a backup role to make way for Austin "Cooper-" Abadir, who was signed from Swole Patrol at the start of the month.

Skyler "Relyks" Weaver was initially supposed to be the player on the chopping block, but Kaleb "moose" Jayne revealed at IEM Chicago in an interview with HLTV.org that the player getting cut had not yet been determined, which, he added, was making everyone "put in 110%".

dazzLe steps down to make way for Cooper-

dazzLe wrote that he was informed of his benching in the wake of DreamHack Open Atlanta, where eUnited were eliminated in the group stage following losses to Complexity and Luminosity. And even though the team will reevaluate this change in approximately a month, he is not optimistic that he will be able to reclaim his spot in the starting line-up.

"The travel day home from Atlanta was basically our day of deciding what the roster is," dazzLe wrote. "I am brought into a call with our manager and coach, and they inform me that the team decided that they want to give Skyler [Relyks] the chance to play most of my roles and see how it worked.

"They told me I would be benched for about a month while Skyler is trialed. There are almost no matches outside of the Minor qualifier within the next four-five weeks. So I guess it will be judged off scrims mostly.

"I am not holding my breath for my spot, honestly, as there will not be many results to warrant another change. But I am going to play more CS than I ever have in my entire life."

eUnited, who finished in seventh place in the ESL Pro League and in eighth place in ECS, will return to action in the closed qualifier for the Americas Minor, scheduled for December 12-14, in which six spots at the $50,000 event will be on offer.

The North American team currently have:

Why Dazzle? Statistically he has been doing very well. Not the right move imho.

It's either him or relyks. 1 month trial seems fair to see if relyks can perform better than dazzle.
2018-11-28 00:22
Yeah, I guess, but I still feel like Dazzle is better. I don't know if they will even let Dazzle back on. We will see.

Bro I saw your reddit rants but I'm banned for telling Liquid fans their team is shit. FNS is making this team better than they would be without him. If eUnited only won 1 map in IEM Chicago, Relyks eUnited would have won 0. Straight facts. He is not the problem.
2018-11-28 00:33
+1 People dont understand what FNS is bringing to the team. Same thing cloud9 fans did, didn't give fns time and they just called c9 a bad team even though they could have been a good top 10 team with FNS had the org given him time and the players listened to what he wanted in the team
2018-11-28 00:38
Basically saw all the Clown9 fans calling out FNS saying "he doesn't frag well for the level eUnited play at!" All those 12 year olds don't even watch eUnited. eUnited do not play at a "high level" FNS is the perfect ingame leader for a team like this. He will make them improve. Him paired with osorandom will make eUnited way stronger and take them to the next level as a team and as a player. Literally would not be surprised if eUnited passed Clown9 as a team. That roster is a joke
2018-11-28 00:40
I agree with your points but if you think c9 with FNS could've been a "good top 10 team" you're just delusional.

Moose is their best player, Cooper is also better, dapr showing progress, FNS bot but IGL. So it's between him and relyks and they decided to give him same role to see if he can do it better for a month.
2018-11-28 00:37
Dapr is worse than everyone imo

eUnited really just fucking the roster up. all planned from fns two faced pujan the #1 team killer.
2018-11-28 00:33
Low tier bait bro. There are literally no easy moves to make in this roster. Benching Ace was a hard move but they improved. Cooper will make them even better. I think eU are being smart about these roster changes (even when I was skeptical of bringing in FNS literally a week before massive lans)
2018-11-28 00:42
He could replace yayster on coL. Don't know who he would replace on Ghost. NRG would be worse with dazzle
2018-11-28 00:34
Neptune without question. He needs to improve a fair amount still. He's a little too fresh for top level, but that said he may do the things steel wants better.
2018-11-28 01:45
I rather keep neptune and give him his fair shout first. coL would improve a great deal getting rid of yay. He's a bit inconsistent
2018-11-28 02:20
I just think Neptune is the most removable slot on the team. The other 3 are stronger individually, and steel is irreplaceable really. I'm not calling him bad but Dazzle is better. And as for yay, I agree he's inconsistent but his top level is higher. If he stabilizes his play he'll be really good.
2018-11-28 04:14
First of all, I'm glad someone recognizes the worth of Subroza. Everyone calls him an onliner and a cheater but those days are behind him. The Subroza of 2018 is not the Subroza from 2016. I agree with everything you say. I hope yayster can pull everything back. He's a really entertaining player.
2018-11-28 21:51
This! coL is great but yay is sooo bad
