Lazarus confirm yay signing

Lazarus have officially announced the addition of Jaccob "⁠yay⁠" Whiteaker to their starting roster.

yay joins the North American squad on a permanent basis after helping the team to secure a spot in the ESL One New York closed qualifier with a 1.46 rating across the final three rounds of the first open bracket.

The American rifler, who is mostly known for his time with Complexity, had previously been part of Bad News Bears, playing approximately two weeks with the ESEA MDL side before his move to Lazarus.

yay is Lazarus' new fifth player

Lazarus had been on the lookout for a fifth player since Michael "⁠dapr⁠" Gulino was released from his contract at the end of May, with the team fielding Tyson "⁠TenZ⁠" Ngo and Pujan "⁠FNS⁠" Mehta in the first stage of the qualifying process for the next Major as replacements for dapr and Braxton "⁠swag⁠" Pierce.

With yay having helped the Bad News Bears to reach the closed qualifier for the Americas Minor, he will be unable to help his new team in the tournament, which will kick off on June 12.

With yay's addition, Lazarus now have:

United States Braxton "⁠swag⁠" Pierce
Canada Yassine "⁠Subroza⁠" Taoufik
United States Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro
United States Gage "⁠Infinite⁠" Green
United States Jaccob "⁠yay⁠" Whiteaker

United States Danny "⁠fRoD⁠" Montaner (coach)

Ok, how many times did Lazarus win post FURIA EU bootcamp which is where they got really good? You know that shit team Gorilla Gang, now Singularity, also beat FURIA some times. Same as eUnited. And yet none of these dumpster teams would get double digits against Sprout or expert.

Infinite and Subroza are both more promising than Dapr imo. Honestly Dapr wasn’t a big loss

Sure I personally don't like infinite but dapr consistently was better than subroza in 2019, I only checked 2019 stats as those seemed to be most relevant and it's when Lazarus was formed *but regarding your comment, losing dapr or subroza prob wouldn't be huge loses but dapr was more consistent

on Lazarus itself Subroza was more consistent than Dapr. Dapr was under performing the most out of anyone on Lazarus which I think influenced the drop.

Bah, I was hoping checking the last 3 months instead of 6 would help my argument but it didn't, dapr was rated lower in the past 3 months than subroza, you right you right
