eUnited release team
The announcement came halfway through the North American closed qualifier for the Americas Minor, in which the team are fielding Maxim "wippie" Shepelev as a stand-in due to Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro being ineligible to play for the squad after he had qualified with Rugratz via the first open bracket.
Questions about eUnited's commitment to this project had been raised after Zellsis was brought in on a permanent basis but not as a contracted member of the organisation.
eUnited have not yet made an announcement about their future plans for CS:GO. The organisation have been involved in the game since 2016, entering the top 30 in the world rankings in November 2018 after their team attended IEM Chicago, where they cruised past Natus Vincere in a best-of-one game before finishing 9th-12th.
After a period of instability, eUnited recruited Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado, Victor "food" Wong and Anthony "vanity" Malaspina - a move that was highly scrutinised after the trio had qualified for IEM Sydney as Swole Patrol. Results continued to stay unpredictable, and the team were dealt a heavy blow when they were left out of ESL Pro League following the tournament organiser's decision to cut the number of participating sides from 48 to 24.
freakazoid suggested that the team will continue to play under Swole Patrol until a new organisation is found. They currently have a 3-2 record in ESEA MDL and will face Rugratz in the first lower bracket round of the Minor qualifier, at 17:00 .
The ex-eUnited squad look as follows:
