ryann in talks with Envy - Report*

According to a report by Dexerto, Envy are in discussions to add Singularity member Ryan "ryann" Welsh.

The talks come just days after ATK picked up both Josh "oSee" Ohm and Ricky "floppy" Kemery from the Singularity roster, leaving them with just three players. Two of ryann's other teammates, Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman and Cameron "hydrex" Kern, were linked to the formation of a new Chaos roster alongside Joshua "steel" Nissan earlier this week, leaving ryann as the only Singularity member not connected to a move to a new team at the time.

The report indicates that Envy also contacted floppy, steel, and Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik, although ryann appears to be the primary candidate as discussions have moved into "advanced stages" and he has already begun practicing with the team.

Envy are looking to ryann to finalize their roster

ryann has been apart of the Singularity core since May of 2018, and most notably helped the team win the WESG 2018 USA Regional Finals as well as achieve a second place finish in ESEA MDL Season 31. However, his success with Singularity didn't go very far from there as the North American team just barely failed to qualify for numerous offline events, with their most recent results seeing them miss out on a spot in ESL Pro League Season 10 after falling in Relegation.

Should the move come to fruition, Envy would have little time to prepare for their next showing as they are set to compete in both the ECS Season 8 NA Pinnacle Cup and the DreamHack Masters Malmo NA closed qualifier, with both events kicking off in less than a week.

The addition of ryann would give Envy the following roster:

United States Noah "Nifty" Francis
United States Sam "s0m" Oh
Canada Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor
United States Jacob "FugLy" Medina
United States Ryan "ryann" Welsh

United States Zachary "Eley" Stauffer (Coach)

Update: Following the publication of this report, HLTV.org has learned that Envy have also been practicing with New Identity's Skyler "Relyks" Weaver, leaving multiple players in consideration for the fifth position.

envy has no future with this lineup
2019-09-07 03:26
>tier2 na scene >future pick one
2019-09-07 04:01
If NRG could do it, maybe another team could do it also
2019-09-07 04:04
Envy even isnt tier2, and there alot perspective tier2 teams on the scene
2019-09-07 04:22
Even an MG2 mix can be tier2 in NA. That scene is about 2 decent teams, rest is absolutely dogshit.
2019-09-07 04:27
nice they can tier 3 now congrats
