freakazoid joins Ghost

Swole Patrol member Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir has completed a move to Ghost, the North American organization has revealed.

The 26-year-old joins Ghost after the North American squad had a disappointing run at the end of 2018, failing to qualify for the Americas Minor as well as StarSeries i-League Season 7.

freakazoid has been flying Swole Patrol's banner since January 2018, alongside his brother Austin "Cooper-" Abadir, who left the team in November to join eUnited, helping the squad reach new heights after clinching the Fragadelphia 12 title and securing a spot in ESL Pro League Season 9.

freakazoid will debut for Ghost at iBUYPOWER Masters

According to Dust2.us, the Southern California native has been seen practicing with Ghost for several weeks, taking the place of Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik in the starting lineup.

freakazoid is set to debut for Ghost at the $200,000 iBUYPOWER Masters tournament, hosted at the Avalon Theater Hollywood, in Los Angeles, kicking off their first BO1 match against FaZe on Saturday at 22:00.

With freakazoid's addition, Ghost have the following lineup:

Canada Matthew "WARDELL" Yu
Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan
United States Jason "neptune" Tran
United States Kenneth "koosta" Suen
United States Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir

United States James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (coach)

I think he was mad because he wanted to make it into a big team with his brother, and probably turned down a bunch of offers to do it, then his brother kinda took the first offer and left him
