dazzLe to trial for Ze Pug Godz as ANDROID steps down

Bradley "⁠ANDROID⁠" Fodor has announced he is taking up VALORANT, freeing up a spot in Ze Pug Godz that Will "⁠dazzLe⁠" Loafman will fill on a trial basis.

ANDROID tweeted out that he's leaving Ze Pug Godz, the team he has been competing with since February. The 26-year-old initially said he would step down after DreamHack Open Summer, but dazzLe reached out to Dust2.us confirming it would be him playing both the FunSpark ULTI 2020 North America Qualifier and DreamHack Open Summer instead.

dazzLe will start to play with Ze Pug Godz this weekend

ANDROID was part of the Complexity roster that made the playoffs at the FACEIT Major in London. He then joined Envy in March of last year , but after several unsuccessful roster moves and mixed results that ended up with Envy finishing last at DreamHack Masters Malmö and failing to make the ESL Pro League Finals, he was moved to the bench at the beginning of this year.

ANDROID failed to make it through the Flashpoint 1 and the Americas Minor qualifiers with Ze Pug Godz, but then qualified for DreamHack Open Summer and won the two first Mythic Summer Series Cups before finishing 3-4th in the third one.

Taking over the open spot on the roster will be dazzLe, who confirmed he will be jumping right in and making his first appearances with the team this weekend, playing both the FunSpark ULTI 2020 qualifier, which Ze Pug Godz kick off against Yeah, and DreamHack Open Summer, where they play Liquid in their opening match.

Ze Pug Godz are now:

Mexico Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado
United States Austin "⁠Cooper-⁠" Abadir
United States Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro
United States Gage "⁠Infinite⁠" Green
United States Will "⁠dazzLe⁠" Loafman

United Kingdom Ian "⁠Immi⁠" Harding (coach)

Some? You mean most as it stands right now most of the top rosters are either completely or majority cs pros and in some cases (TSM for example) its literally some of the most washed up na cs players ever seen. I really hope they get paid a lot of money because if they fail and get replaced, which will happen eventually they won't be getting onto lower-level teams in valorant most likely while they also can't really return to cs.

According to android there was alot of problems in the team. He said "Ive never been in a team that has become such a toxic enviroment so fast" Paraphrased of course but that was around what he said. Sad because i really like ANDROID as a player.

The main Valorant scene is kinda just NA cause all the big names flocked to it (Brax, skadoodle) and right now for CS NA is not competent to compete against EU so why would any org invest in an NA team. The current state for pros and orgs in cs is soo bad.

2020-08-08 14:58
valorant rn doesn't provide any facility at all for the pro players, just a bunch of cash tournaments. t2/t3 cs scene still has more opportunities than valorant, people are switching cause it's hard to break into the cs scene rn cause how competitive it is, while valorant rn is just free market. Anyone can get picked by an org or play in a tournament

Valorant in NA offers more opportunities right now, for the reasons you mentioned. It's easier for players to get a solid salary (or get paid anything at all) and possibly make a name for yourself.
2020-08-08 18:24
Yap free market, barely any competition. meanwhile in cs a cut throat situation with immense competition to even get into t2

So unfortunate for the rest of the team. ZPG were actually making noise in the Na scene. Sad for him to jump ship when there was so much potential. But then I cannot blame him for moving to Valorant
2020-08-08 14:38
The guy was doing 1v5 deagle on stream in the past 3 weeks, qualify for DH and dump his team on the first day of the tournament ? Worst trash CS pro scene has ever had

Its just a bottom of the barrel, scum move to fuck over your team like that. That being said I watched dazzLe play in the Mythic Cup and he did pretty well for his team.
2020-08-08 16:29
Yes, PVO beats ZPG, and he leaves PVO to play for ZPG.
2020-08-08 19:43
I seriously feel bad for cooper & MarkE everytime they have been grinding when something start to workout/they getting good scores someone drops or something happends
2020-08-08 14:41

ANDROID said that the team was getting toxic and a bit too personal so he decided to step down. He's also been wondering what to do, whether it be stay with CS or explore new games, and in this case it's Valorant.

I don't know why ANDROID decided to make the switch to Valorant so late lol. He literally eats, sleeps, and breathes CSGO - it's all he streams on Twitch. He has been wasting his time which is sad to see, but that's on him.
2020-08-08 16:27
Wtf why? He is great, he could have a great career in CS. dazzLe is weak for me, and I don't like this signing. I would prefer them to take FaNg, he seems to be a great player.
2020-08-08 16:30
Android is great wtf??? why go to valorant for u wont do anything there maybe win a $5000 tournament one time in life but nothing else...
2020-08-08 16:51
Since I see that a lot of people are saying that Android is great and good etc - HE'S NOT, I've been watching his matches for years, Back when Complexity had Ape, Uber, Android, Surreal and Dephh (yeah, who're those people, right?) Android was also "good" then, he was "always" good, but in reallity he was just posting okay (1,08 rating) numbers against T2/T3 NA teams (ie TSM, Conquest at the time and similar teams) and regardless of for how long you'd wait for him to pop up and finally be the main star, he never really delivered.
2020-08-08 16:59
Agreed, he just can't handle the heat. Time to hit something casual like valorant.
2020-08-08 17:19
Expected the guy has been regreting not switching to valorant ever since it came out
2020-08-08 17:13

Of all the NA Players leaving (Wardell, Swag, Subroza,...) is this the dumbest Move ever. They looked so good, smashed nearly everyone. They could be a stable Top 5 Team in NA But no he decided to go to Valorant because Money and so on. I lost all his respect to him. This is officially the dumbest Move ever. And Dazzle was on every Tier 2 NA Team that dude is everywhere

Not sure why it makes you lose respect. These people are just trying to earn money with the skills they have. It's not only about them wanting to get paid, it's also about them not knowing if they will get picked up at all. Just look at Wardell. Despite being one of the most promising players in NA, he didn't get picked up by any solid organization after Ghost. He made the decision to switch to Valorant early and he got rewarded for it.

But it wasn't for the money and so on, he lost interest in CSGO and had enough of the "NA CS scene". He wanted to do something else and valorant was it.

Funny enough Infinite was on the Valorant Cloud9 team but, all of a sudden he announced his return to CSGO. Was replaced with vice... Im sure his toxicity didn't mesh well with TenZ, shinobi and whoever else and he got the boot.
2020-08-08 19:19
Based on what other ZPG players were saying on stream, it appears to be a disagreement as to practicing and how effective said practices were going. It sounds like it was just a difference in opinion, but in an org a lot of the decisions would be from the org/contract and not made by the players. If you think about it ZPG has to just agree to do formal prac / scrim because they are not contractually required to do so. That can lead to problems when you have team members not on the same page about when, how, and how much to practice. It might be best for team cohesion though to just separate quickly and move on. Wish him the best, hope ZPG continues to make noise and get picked up
