Triumph sign penny, moose

The organisation has officially brought in the Canadian duo ahead of their ESL One Cologne North America campaign.

Triumph have announced the signings of Erik "⁠penny⁠" Penny and Kaleb "⁠moose⁠" Jayne, confirming an earlier report by HLTV.org that the organisation was in discussions with the duo. The pair join the roster as replacements for Rahul "⁠curry⁠" Nemani and Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince, with the former stepping down to focus on college and the latter making the jump up to Liquid at the start of August.

Both Canadians already played for Triumph in DreamHack Open Summer, in which the team were knocked out in last place following losses to Chaos and Ze Pug Godz.

moose has signed with Triumph

penny has been earmarked as one of the next upcoming talents in North America following a similar trajectory to Chaos' Erick "⁠Xeppaa⁠" Bach with his performances in MDL. moose, meanwhile, suffered a drastic drop in form as a part of Envy, and will make a concerted effort to return to his eUnited level under new leadership.

With more practice time under their belts with the new additions, Triumph will look to bounce back from their DreamHack Open Summer showing in their opening match in ESL One Cologne against Evil Geniuses on Wednesday at 22:00 .

Triumph's roster consists of:

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)

penny is a great player, I love this signing, however moose seems like a total BOT, I have no idea why they took him. For me they should remove Spongey, because he is really bad for me, and take FaNg, because he is a great player for me, and take Keiti instead of moose, I know it's weird to have woman in Male team, but she seems to be a great player, and I would love this kind of experiment to happen.
2020-08-19 00:03
you do know that keiti was born a male right???
2020-08-19 00:46
What? Is that's true or a joke?
2020-08-19 00:55
its a well known fact...
2020-08-19 02:01
I never heard about that. Interesting.
2020-08-19 02:13
Good luck moose, deserves tier 1 NA team
2020-08-19 02:07
Moose has a very cool signature
