grux links up with Ancient*

Upon Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora's departure from the team, Ancient members have announced that they will be playing with Denis "⁠grux⁠" Gutaj moving forward.

Update: According to the StarLadder Major rulebook, Ancient are not able to change the lineup they qualified with unless an emergency occurs, which prohibits them from adding grux to their Europe Minor lineup.

The 19-year-old Swede had represented an earlier version of Ancient, featuring Andreas "⁠znajder⁠" Lindberg and Markus "⁠pronax⁠" Wallsten, and now makes his return to the team following Plopski's move to NiP. grux will be playing with Ancient in their upcoming competitions, including the Europe Minor.

grux returns to Ancient ahead of the Europe Minor

Ancient managed to qualify for the Europe Minor by beating Windigo and North, and also impressed at DreamHack Open Summer, where they finished second after eliminating CR4ZY and Aristocracy. Their recent results saw them rocket up the rankings, currently sitting at #23.

Ancient will use the following roster moving forward:

Sweden William "⁠draken⁠" Sundin
Sweden Fredrik "⁠freddieb⁠" Buö
Sweden Joakim "⁠disco doplan⁠" Gidetun
Sweden Alfred "⁠RuStY⁠" Karlsson
Sweden Denis "⁠grux⁠" Gutaj

Sweden André "⁠BARBARR⁠" Möller (coach)

grux is a beast too it's not that much of a step back in my opinion
2019-06-19 18:38
didn't impress me last time he was on ancient, tbh. still a step back. NiP isn't going to benefit from this with GTR and lekr0 still on the team.

Ancient qualified for minor by beating windigo and tricked not windigo and north as stated in the article

Good move for the team and the player.
2019-06-19 18:33
Actually pretty decent addition. Hes obv not better than Plopski, but one of the better replacements tbh.
2019-06-19 18:35
Havent seen much of grux how is he
2019-06-19 19:10
Hes average, not amazing not bad. But, with a nice team like Ancient he can become better, hes pretty new to the scene. Played a while with Red Reserve & Paperplanes In RR draken, Disco, Rusty, freddieb & Hampus played with him, so Grux will reunite with his old teammates.
2019-06-19 19:19
Grux won't last in a team because he's young and below average. Commonly found anchoring in important matches.
2019-06-19 19:53
nice

What now then?
2019-06-19 19:20
Well... This is kinda of an emergency if they can't play with him because he's playing for another team ? Or prevent NiP to play with Plopski in the first place. Looks really stupid to me if it only works in one way.

It's either NiP Plopski AND Ancient grux or nothing, cant work only one way
2019-06-19 19:50
+1 you very smart
2019-06-19 20:02
Prof, WHY are you still having to make these updates to articles about roster moves and the major? Surely you know by now exactly how the major's roster locks work, and that of course Plopski can't play this major for anyone other than Ancient, and Ancient can't play without him.

Feels bad for Ancient but they don't have a chance at minor anyway
2019-06-19 20:21
They can easily play with grux in minor Just add him as a coach Some teams did it for Katowice 2019 major
2019-06-19 21:45
For a second I thought it was Gux the legend :D
2019-06-20 01:14
no Gux, no Glory
