moose in talks with Triumph - Report

The former Envy member will link up with Triumph for their DreamHack Open Summer North America campaign on Saturday.

Triumph have found a fifth player to fill the spot left vacant following the departure of Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince for Liquid, with sources telling HLTV.org that the team will add Kaleb "⁠moose⁠" Jayne to their roster after he was released from Envy on Thursday.

On Envy, moose averaged a 0.99 rating, a substantial drop-off from his performances on eUnited and Rise Nation when he rose to prominence. His addition to Triumph will need to make an impact as the loss of Grim comes as a big blow to the roster on the rise.

moose is set to fill the vacant spot on Triumph

moose will be the second Canadian player to link up with Alan "⁠Shakezullah⁠" Hardeman's troops after Erik "⁠penny⁠" Penny joined at the end of July. Both players are currently in negotiations with the organisation, with moose making his debut for the team on Saturday in Group A of DreamHack Open Summer against Chaos.

Prior to that however, former Triumph members Grim and Rahul "⁠curry⁠" Nemani will have one final outing with the team on Friday against TeamOne for the North American grand final of ESEA MDL Season 33, where they will look to secure qualification to ESL Pro League Season 12 as they enter the best-of-five series with a one-map advantage.

With the addition of moose, Triumph's roster going forward should be:

United States Alan "⁠Shakezullah⁠" Hardeman
United States Gabe "⁠Spongey⁠" Greiner
United States Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson
Canada Erik "⁠penny⁠" Penny
Canada Kaleb "⁠moose⁠" Jayne

Brazil Marcos "⁠tacitus⁠" Castilho (coach)

Yes, Triumph saved that bot from Valorant to not make him even the bigger one.
2020-08-07 19:41
1.11 rating = bot?

There are even better bots than him who left for Valorant. I have to admit he's very lucky.
2020-08-07 23:53
Like who?
2020-08-08 08:03
I mean, he's the ex of your team flair: wardell.
2020-08-08 09:19
You're right about that. I can't think of any other players though. Apart from Subroza maybe?
2020-08-08 22:27
I saw someone saying this on the post where envy added kuben as coach, he was right

predicted it but good move nonetheless
2020-08-07 20:20
Finally a roster move that actually makes sense
2020-08-07 20:22
great move for them
2020-08-07 20:28
actually a good move and probably the best replacement for grim, maybe not as good, but still a beast when he pops off

For me moose is really bad, I don't think that's the right choice for Triumph. For me Triumph should remove Spongey, because imo. he is really bad aswell, and add ANDROID, because I think he has big impact in the game, and MarKE, because he could add firepower to their roster.
2020-08-07 20:57
MarkE wont leave zpg lol cooper is his good friend

It's about joining a team in which you can make money. It's their job. It doesn't meany anything that they are friends. They can still be friends and not play in one team.

They can also just stay together, build team synergy and hope to get picked up that way

Ze Pug Godz have huge potential, and they will be picked up by an org., it's just the matter of time, and ANDROID and MarKE are 26 and 22 y/o, which measn they need to earn for themselves. Every month without earning money is a hard thing.
