wippie joins Ze Pug Godz in place of MarKE

Ze Pug Godz are making a second player change in a span of a month as Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado's spot will be taken by Maxim "⁠wippie⁠" Shepelev, Dust2.us has learned.

The move was confirmed by wippie himself, who already joined Ze Pug Godz' ESEA roster, but wasn't able to comment on the reasons behind MarKE's departure from the lineup or his future plans.

MarKE's time with Ze Pug Godz is over

Members of Ze Pug Godz, including MarKE, didn't respond to questions about the change that marks their second roster move since the start of August, when Bradley "⁠ANDROID⁠" Fodor left the team and transitioned to VALORANT, citing that he "never experienced so many issues within the first week of practice".

Still on the outlook for an organization, Ze Pug Godz, have recently won the the ESEA Summer Cash Cup 2 North America and have a spot in ESEA MDL Season 35, while sitting on the edge of the top 30 world ranking at #33.

Ze Pug Godz are now:

United States Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro
United States Gage "⁠Infinite⁠" Green
United States Austin "⁠Cooper-⁠" Abadir
United States Will "⁠dazzLe⁠" Loafman
Russia Maxim "⁠wippie⁠" Shepelev

United Kingdom Ian "⁠Immi⁠" Harding (coach)

Motm is their 3rd best player, if anyone they should kick sonic. Plus recently MarkE has shown that he can't compete with the likes of Chaos, so why would C9 want him.

Imagine living in the US but using russian flag LMFAO
2020-08-26 14:13
he's russian
2020-08-26 15:59
No one in the US is actually “american”. 99% or so of them moved from somewhere at some point. That’s a term used to describe US citizens. Wippie is a US citizen, but he uses the russian flag. What a proud lad he must be. That’s almost the same as elige using the Polish flag. Hopefully he goes back to where he came from to wield his favorite flag since he dislikes the american one so much
2020-08-26 16:08
not a US citizen
2020-08-26 16:15
Isn't he? He’s been playing from the US continuously for quite a while now. I thought that’s where he lives
2020-08-26 16:17
i dont know all of the specifics, but he is here for school. his visa is why he couldn't play for chaos and didnt move in with them when he was part of the team
2020-08-26 16:23
Ok, that kind of clears things up. I would still switch my flag to the US the exact second I stepped on US soil to live there even on a temporary basis
2020-08-26 16:25
And yet you're bashing him for patriotism LOL
2020-08-26 16:51
I’m not american, unfortunately
2020-08-26 16:55
What's that got to do with anything? Patriotism mean loyalty to ones country, not loyalty to the USA...
2020-08-26 17:13
patriotism the quality of being patriotic; devotion to and vigorous support for one's country. "a highly decorated officer of unquestionable integrity and patriotism" Patriotism means that you love your own country. I’m not american, hence not patriotic
2020-08-26 17:25
That's my point. You were giving wippie flack about not changing to a US flag despite him, according to you, being a US citizen...then you go on to say that you'd change your flag the second you step on US soil. So basically you were first giving him shit for not being patriotic and then you say one of the least patriotic things possible lol
2020-08-26 23:19
I am not from the US, dude. I don't like the country I live in, so, by definition, I’m not patriotic. On the other hand, if I was to leave to the US, that would change a lot
2020-08-26 23:27
Then don't give wippie shit for not being a "proud lad" just because he won't change his flag as soon has he steps foot on US soil.
2020-08-27 02:09
God, you are stupid. I really dont want to explain the whole thing again but I will. 1)he is from a shit country 2)I am from a shit country 3)he lives in the US 4)I dream of living in the US 5)I would change my flag instantaneously 6)he doesn't want to change, hence I give him shit for that
2020-08-27 10:47
You gave him shit for not being a "proud lad". I don't see what's not prideful about having pride in your original country even if it's worse than the one you moved to...
2020-08-28 00:20
When it’s the cancer of our earth it’s quite despicable ngl
2020-08-28 00:47
If you do not have US passport, you cant
2020-08-26 17:42
Clearly hltv has a very strict policy when it comes to this, doesnt it?
2020-08-26 17:50
Yes, I don't think players can change their flag whenever they want
2020-08-26 17:52
They absolutely can. Waylander, ange1 and a few others were switching between flags however they wanted
2020-08-26 17:53
ange1 always had a ukraine flag, idk about waylander
2020-08-26 17:54
Ange1 switched back and forth between Ukrainian and russian flags several times a few years ago. Both countries forbid dual citizenship. Clearly passports aren't needed. Waylander had the Finnish flag for a while, switched to russian, then to Finnish again and he’s back to russian now
2020-08-26 17:57
liquipedia.net/counterstrike/WayLander waylander has dual citizenship, so he can. Ange1 never had a russian flag, my friend
2020-08-26 17:58
Shit, I confused him with kucher. He used to have a Ukrainian flag, now has a Russian one. Russia doesn't allow dual citizenship btw
2020-08-26 18:05

2020-08-26 17:49
There is no info about this guy on the internet
2020-08-26 17:53
The only thing on his liquipedia page states that he's of russian nationality and currently studying in the US. That's all the information you need :)
2020-08-26 17:56
Didn't know he has a liquipedia page. Anyways, it took me around 5 minutes to write everything I’ve so far written in this thread. Not a bother in any way

I hope MarkE is not switching to Valorant even though It would be understandable.
2020-08-26 14:37
most NA rejects switches to valorant after trying at least 6 or 7 teams in csgo. that\s why such pro players called rejects. they end up without any consistency or clear path. valorant was the game to save pro players in the edge of failure. imagine u get a pro offer to play in valorant just weeks after the game launches without having any practice or anything in valorant. the only reason org picks them is they have csgo exp and have raw skills when it comes to FPS

He's been in the us for a bit now (played in the esea cash cup a few days ago and I think he's been playing fpl recently) so I assume he got a new visa.

oh ok. I thought that's why he left Chaos earlier. Considering Vanity isn't pulling his numbers, I would think Wippie could make a comeback. I was thinking he might be playing from Canada or something.

Tbh he could be playing from Canada I didn't think of that. I assumed he'd gone home over this covid period like other EU pros in NA then come back recently but it seems he's been playing NA FPL the whole time. So idk where he is rn.

He left Chaos because the org wanted everyone to move to the team house and wippie didn't want to because he wanted to proceed with his studies

"complicated visa issues" hltv.org/news/28913/vanity-joins-chaos I guess his VISA is locked to a state (I am guessin CA or OR) due to him having a study visa. So moving to a team house in AZ would mean he couldn't continue with the team.

Like I said - Studied in CA or OR and couldn't move out of state because of the student visa. I read somewhere that he also had to leave US but can't find that article

gl wippie I think MarKE deserves better team
2020-08-26 17:43
I think this is a good move for ZPG honestly. When ZPG started and were streaming their games, it felt like Cooper and Zellsis were babying MarkE and telling him what to do all the time MarkE has insane aim but he has far too little gamesense to show up consistently against decent teams, for example he bottom fragged almost every time they played Chaos I'm really excited to see how wippie can fit into this squad.
2020-08-26 18:42
+1 this makes me feel a little better, as much as i liked marke maybe wippie will fit into the team better and keep ZPG on the rise.
2020-08-27 00:03
This squad is doomed. At this rate hltv should start reporting news on open teams. They're toxic, bad, and can't even hold together a roster. They will probably never get an org and will crawl back to valorant 1 by 1.
