yay set to join Bad News Bears

Former Complexity member Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker has agreed to link up with Bad News Bears, according to a report from Dust2.us.

The 20-year-old will start competing with the ESEA MDL side only after the ESL One Cologne closed qualifier, scheduled for May 10-11, as he remains committed to INTZ, standing in for the Brazilian team in absence of Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes, who is currently dealing with personal matters.

yay, who will be stepping into Skyler "Relyks" Weaver's shoes, was benched by Complexity in December 2018 after over a year with the team, making his final appearance at DreamHack Open Winter.

yay will replace Relyks on Bad News Bears

Until yay is available, Bad News Bears will field Austin "crashies" Roberts as a stand-in. The 21-year-old, who was the highest-rated player on Team Skadoodle at the recent ESEA Rank S Combine, in Las Vegas, already stood in for the team on Sunday, averaging a 1.26 rating in the 2-0 victories over Royal and Party Astronauts in Mythic Cup 2.

With yay's addition, Bad News Bears will have the following roster:

United States Peter "ptr" Gurney
Canada Tyson "TenZ" Ngo
United States Mitch "mitch" Semago
United States Josh "shinobi" Abastado
United States Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker

another hltv post of a trash team with a trash pick up, makes sense to me.
2019-05-06 20:16
iq checks out, shox is the most overrated player in csgo history.
2019-05-06 22:25
yay plays FACEIT major barely makes it to quarters, shox plays 14 majors, wins 1 major with 4 mvp awards and 4 top 20 apperances and won 14 different LANS Shox overrated says s0m fan. OMEGALUL
2019-05-06 22:34
what has shox done lately? by your calculation, pronax > s1mple
2019-05-06 22:38
"csgo history" What has yay or s0m achieved in their careers thus far? Nothing.
2019-05-06 22:39
I'll take back my comment after either of those 2 players win a major or 2 with multiple lan achievements on a top 5 team. I don't know why people argue for bad players, braindead men(((
2019-05-06 22:46
dude shox is a bot. has been for years. players like s0m and yay have nothing to do with him. sorry for the reality check
2019-05-06 22:52
Tell me why shox is a bot then, because seemingly my initial post had nothing to do with shox either, but you seem to want to back off when I provide facts of why he's better than the supposed players you are a fan of.
2019-05-06 22:58
i called him overrated. referring to tier 5 players like s0m and yay as evidence of why shox is not overrated is just LOL. What has shox achieved in the last 2 years?
2019-05-06 22:59
Your only reply is he's "overrated" and a bot, that's all you gave me. No proof, no examples, statistics, or anything. Last 2 years? 4 Major appearances with a quarter finals finish, 1st place at dreamhack open tours, 1st place ESL pro league finals season 5, 1st place dreamhack masters malmo, and top 3 finishes at epicenter and WESG 2018 world finals. Still averages a 1.13 rating to this date. Give me reasons he's overrated or just leave dumbass lol, you're probably just baiting.
