wippie joins Ben's Anime Team
The addition of wippie completes Joshua "steel" Nissan's roster amid previous reports of a move to Chaos, with the team already enlisting Gage "Infinite" Green, Ben "ben1337" Smith, and former Singularity duo Cameron "cam" Kern and Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman to fill their ranks. Shakezullah is still expected to transition to a coaching role after playing the requisite eight matches to help the roster retain their spot in ESEA MDL.
wippie is most known for his performances in FPL, gaining notoriety by placing at the top of the leaderboard on numerous occasions over the past months. His first venture with steel was on nambla, a mix-team for the MSI MGA closed qualifier that also featured William "RUSH" Wierzba, a player who was previously linked with the rumoured Chaos project before he was acquired by Complexity.
Ben's Anime Team have already utilized wippie in a handful of matches, initially trialing the player during the DreamHack Open Atlanta closed qualifier where they were able to secure a 2-0 win over Sharks. The 20-year-old has also competed in three ESEA MDL matches with the roster, averaging a 1.29 rating to help notch wins over Mythic, MAC-51, and Big Frames.
Ben's Anime Team's roster is now:
