Chaos set to pick up Xeppaa, leaf

Chaos have added Erick "⁠Xeppaa⁠" Bach and Nathan "⁠leaf⁠" Orf to their ESEA roster, with a report from Dust2.us indicating that the duo will replace Hunter "⁠SicK⁠" Mims and Cameron "⁠cam⁠" Kern.

cam's removal would end a five-month long tenure with the organization for the player, leaving Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan as the sole remaining member of the Ben's Anime Team roster that was signed by Chaos in November. SicK, meanwhile, was reportedly only meant to be a part of the team for the duration of their Flashpoint 1 run, and plans to step back from CS:GO in the near future.

The player swap marks the seventh change to the Chaos roster since the start of the year after the team parted ways with Gage "⁠Infinite⁠" Green, Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield, Maxim "⁠wippie⁠" Shepelev, Ben "⁠ben1337⁠" Smith, and coach Alan "⁠Shakezullah⁠" Hardeman.

cam is reportedly on his way out of Chaos

leaf and Xeppaa join as two of the most recent prospects who have started making a name for themselves in North America, posting 1.24 and 1.21 ratings, respectively, in the North American division of ESEA MDL Season 33.

The pair were also mentioned by Anthony "⁠vanity⁠" Malaspina in a December 2019 interview with Dust2.us as two players he was fairly certain would go pro, alongside Erik "⁠penny⁠" Penny and recent Triumph addition Rahul "⁠curry⁠" Nemani.

Going forward, Chaos' roster is reported to be:

Canada Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan
United States Anthony "⁠vanity⁠" Malaspina
United States Logan "⁠Voltage⁠" Long
United States Erick "⁠Xeppaa⁠" Bach
United States Nathan "⁠leaf⁠" Orf

United States Matthew "⁠mCe⁠" Elmore (coach)
