Relyks confirms eUnited benching, Ace departs

Skyler "Relyks" Weaver has been benched by eUnited, the North American player has confirmed.

In a Twitlonger post, the 23-year-old shed light on the abundance of changes in recent months leading up to the team's decision to remove him from the starting lineup to make way for Will "dazzLe" Loafman.

After the initial signing of Pujan "FNS" Mehta, Relyks stepped down as the IGL to become the primary AWPer, but the signing of Austin "Cooper-" Abadir forced him to take up the role as entry fragger.

Relyks believes things could have fallen into place with more time in his new roles

Relyks' last appearance for eUnited came in the North American qualifier for the Americas Minor, helping the team to book a spot at the event in Katowice. It was after a pre-holiday bootcamp in Los Angeles, while on a break, that the player was informed that the team would be giving dazzLe another shot in the starting lineup.

"I just don't think there was a reasonable time given in either iteration of the roles to even see close to where we'd be after building chemistry and waiting for things to fall into place," he wrote.

Meanwhile, Brandon "Ace" Winn announced on Twitter that he is no longer tied to the North American organization and is "available to pursue other options".

The 23-year-old donned the red, white, and blue threads between March and October before being loaned out to Swole Patrol in the aftermath of the Cooper- acquisition.

With the changes, eUnited currently have:

Canada Kaleb "moose" Jayne
United States Michael "dapr" Gulino
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta
United States Austin "Cooper-" Abadir
United States Will "dazzLe" Loafman

United States Skyler "Relyks" Weaver (benched)

Understandable since they can't find a role for him, but at the same time he is too good for eUnited. Perhaps C9 can use him as the Golden stand-in after the major

2019-01-04 11:03
qualifying for lans in europe is borderline impossible because of the overabundance of great teams and although the americas have improved immensely in the past 2 years, there aren't actually too many free agents in america who've proven that they can compete internationally. i can see why there aren't a lot of new orgs picking up free agents rn.

2019-01-04 13:54
Relyks is a pretty bad player and he hasn't shown any signs of improvement since Selfless. Not surprised by this move. Dazzle is a better player
2019-01-04 13:57
You know relyks was the igl of EU right ? He is way better than FNS ! They should have done only -ace + cooper. They made it to pro league and ECS , they are a good team !
2019-01-04 16:57
He still played like dog shit even when he wasn't IGL anymore and he wasn't a particularly good IGL anyways. Worse caller than FNS for sure. Making it to pro league and ECS in NA is not an achievement lmao. eUnited are hard carried by moose and Relyks was possibly the worst player in the team besides FNS individually
2019-01-04 17:28
I only say that EU with Relyks is better than EU with FNS ! FNS is dogshit at fragging ! At least Relyks can frag a little !

2019-01-04 15:18
Why does he keep getting benched, he's been a solid player for years I thought he would have had a shot in C9 or something by now.
