Ze Pug Godz revive Swole Patrol name

The former Ze Pug Godz players have brought back the Swole Patrol name ahead of the upcoming ESEA MDL North America season.

The organization-less Swole Patrol brand is back after its last iteration, which included returning players Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro and Austin "⁠Cooper-⁠" Abadir, disbanded in May.

Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado would have been a third member of the previous Swole Patrol to return, but he was replaced on the roster by Maxim "⁠wippie⁠" Shepelev just three days ago.

Cooper- and Zellsis are back to competing under Swole Patrol

Swole Patrol, who are still looking for an organization to represent, currently sit at No. 33 in the world ranking and recently won the the ESEA Summer Cash Cup 2 North America while still under Ze Pug Godz. They will compete in the upcoming season of ESEA MDL North America and at IEM New York 2020 North America.

Swole Patrol are:

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

United Kingdom Ian "⁠Immi⁠" Harding (coach)

Chaos will die when Liquid/EG/c9/GenG need to change some players and get some new young blood and they set their sights on xeppaa, leaf, etc. Chaos will cash in and steel once again left to rebuild from scratch unfortunatelly

Chaos, GenG, and C9 all getting paid good money. Are they really significantly better than Swole Patrol? Even Triumph is salaried, and they're basically an MDL team since Grim left.

This will be their second time getting into the top 30 with no coach, org, any direction at all. There are lesser players/teams who are on salary, its not like the dream is impossible.

2020-08-28 14:41
This lineup is a very good one. Kinda insane that no org sign them tbh.
2020-08-28 14:42
I like them but the core keeps havinmg issues and Zellsis' rants and attitude don't not help. I'd be weary to sign them due to instability.

Wouldn't actual salaries help with instability? I would imagine it's kind of hard NOT to have issues when you have to pay the bills and don't have a stable source of income. There are worse teams than Swole Patrol that are salaried.

tbh GODSENT had to play really well (for a long time) before any org took interest in them. Also they might have some offers, but those offers might not meet their expectations so they decline them.

I’m sure this team could get a low tier org to sign them... Like an org you might find on MDL... However; no reputable org paying decent salaries are investing in NA teams. Unlike EU the scene here is virtually dead. No investment from TOs, no sponsorship, no growth, no anything. Plus it’s very very expensive to sign some t1 players. And if Swole Patrol is looking for t1 salaries it’ll be an uphill battle. Sucks, but unless they bite the bullet and join a small org the chances are pretty slim. Maybe Team Envy grabs a few of them. Idk. steamdb.info/servers/
2020-08-28 16:42
The previous iteration of swole patrol did get offers, but they turned them down because they weren't good enough. These guys are definitely setting the bar too high for themselves.
2020-08-28 17:25
Wouldn't they be better off taking something than nothing? Also, one other factor is Covid. Most companies not named Amazon or Facebook are hurting right now. How many can afford to sponsor a team? Even $5k a month salary per player is $300k a year.
2020-08-29 19:03
Well, you're not wrong, but they haven't stuck together for more than just a few months.

These orgs are businesses first overall... Competing in quals & maybe getting LANs just isn’t worth it. You need invites, League spots, broadcasting which basically means your games are seen by people etc. These orgs sell ads, Merch, etc. And in NA there’s barely any reason to invest in t2/3.
2020-08-28 19:32
Well, they have their chance to make pro league. They are the highest rated MDL team heading into season 35.
2020-08-29 19:05
From a stupid name to a less stupid name. Good job.

No orgs or anyone are investing in t2/3 NA teams with a decent salary. So, we’ll see...

I'm sure they could get $1K a month from some org. Eclipse and Rebirth orgs just signed two dogshit MDL teams.
