Swisher joins Yeah

Yeah are no longer a full Brazilian roster with the addition of Michael "⁠Swisher⁠" Schmid.

Swisher has been brought on by Yeah to close out the roster, who currently reside in North America, after Victor "⁠iDk⁠" Torraca stepped down from the active lineup. The team had to scramble for a fifth after losing the Brazilian 22-year-old at the end of last month when he expressed a desire to return to his home country to be with his family.

"Due to the pandemic, the difficulties to enter the USA increased," said team manager Guilherme "mza"' Donini in an interview on Yeah's website. "so, to make it faster, we chose to look for someone from the international scene, who was already in the USA, and who better than an American in that regard."

Swisher will represent Yeah moving forward

"Since the beginning of the Yeah project in the USA, learning English has been part of our planning- That is why the team feels more and more comfortable with communicating in another language. The experience with Swisher over the weekend and in training has been super positive."

Swisher has already played six official maps with Yeah across two best-of-three series in the ESEA Summer Cash Cup 3, one which they won against Mythic and the other a loss to Swole Patrol in the final. He said that he will start taking Portuguese lessons soon.

"I really didn't think being hired by Yeah would happen, but I also couldn't be more excited to see what we can achieve," Swisher said. "I knew that communication would be a problem, since they all speak Portuguese, but I also believe that we will be able to overcome these difficulties."

Yeah are now:

Brazil Alef "⁠tatazin⁠" Pereira
Brazil Rodrigo "⁠RCF⁠" Figueiredo
Brazil Eduardo "⁠dumau⁠" Wolkmer
Brazil Arthur "⁠f4stzin⁠" Schmitt
United States Michael "⁠Swisher⁠" Schmid

Brazil Victor "⁠iDk⁠" Torraca (benched)

Not sure who Swisher is, but all the best of luck to him. I am happy to see that Yeah is taking their NA adventure serious and going as far as learning English to be able to accommodate players from the NA scene in cases like this. Good luck.

it's hard to believe BR teams in NA won't ever notice how many good NA players are available in the market, almost embarrassing
2020-09-09 19:54
I think its natural that they would want to communicate in their native Brazilian Portuguese, but happy to see that they are thinking beyond and do think about integrating NA (read English speaking) players if needed as it seems the BR scene is rather stagnant at the moment. (No expert on the BR scene though and there might be lots of upcoming talents available though) I do wish Yeah all the luck and happy to see any team, liking them or not, trying new talents. :-)

Swisher is a decent MDL player. I say give him a chance on the server.
2020-09-09 19:54
This decision is beyond stupid.
2020-09-09 19:54
Elaborate
2020-09-09 20:47
An ascending team with 4 players and a coach that probably speak average english at best. Suddenly they decide to change their language to accomodate one english speaker. Communication problems for 6 months more and say good bye to improvements.
