Swole Patrol disband

The American roster have decided to go their separate ways after spending just over two months together.

Jordan "⁠Zellsis⁠" Montemurro has revealed on Twitter that Swole Patrol have disbanded, with the fate of the individual members of the roster still up in the air with players wanting to "move in different directions."

This iteration of the Swole Patrol roster first came together under the Ze Pug Godz tag in July, with Zellsis, Austin "⁠Cooper-⁠" Abadir, and Edgar "⁠MarKE⁠" Maldonado reuniting from the previous Swole Patrol roster alongside Bradley "⁠ANDROID⁠" Fodor and Gage "⁠Infinite⁠" Green.

The team found swift success as they qualified for the North American division of DreamHack Open Summer 2020 with victories over Chaos and TeamOne, but shortly afterward ANDROID announced he would be leaving the roster as he had "never experienced so many issues within the first week of practice."

Cooper- and company have chosen to walk different paths

With Will "⁠dazzLe⁠" Loafman enlisted as a replacement for the Canadian player, the team went on to place 5-6th in DreamHack Open Summer before narrowly missing out on qualifying for FunSpark ULTI with a loss to Chaos in the grand final.

Zellsis and company later went on to qualify for IEM New York, a Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event, but recently found out that they would be unable to field Maxim "⁠wippie⁠" Shepelev in the event due to a roster lock imposed at the time of the closed qualifier in mid-August when the team were still competing with MarKE, who has since departed for Chaos.

When contacted by HLTV.org, wippie said he was uncertain of the direction he wanted to go in, mentioning that he would still like to play CS:GO. dazzLe mentioned that he would announce his intentions in the coming days, while Zellsis said in a statement to Dust2.us that he is unsure if he will stay in the game. Cooper- did not respond to a request for comment.

Swole Patrol's roster was:

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

United Kingdom Ian "⁠Immi⁠" Harding (coach)

sad part is zellsis was trying to say this time was different and that they wouldn't disband like a month ago. so expected
2020-09-18 02:16
I mean, it did seem like it would be different, you know they were actually an ok team, they were able to consistently stay at the same level as Chaos and C9 and sometimes beat better teams, you could not say the same thing about the old Swole Patrol or Swole Identity lineups.
2020-09-18 15:27
Expected. I honestly don't know what they expected. "Let's build a roster again from the same pool of T3 talent and see if we get results"
2020-09-18 02:16
CSGO in a rough spot? Should just say its T2 NA CS not CSGO :) All T2 NA players going to valorant and most likely theese will aswell
2020-09-18 02:16
It’s not even tier 2 lmao
2020-09-18 03:00
These guys already tried to go to valorant but then they came back to CS xD. But I guess they’ll try their hand at valorant again
2020-09-18 03:01
Some people aren't made to play esports, they should literally get a life instead of wasting years on this
2020-09-18 04:02
lol they get paid good salaries to play games thats a life if u ask me
2020-09-18 05:39
These guys? You think swole patrol makes good salaries? It's not even a sponsored team.
2020-09-18 07:26
what salaries, that's why they're disbanding, they ain't getting any
2020-09-18 08:22
nvm I never looked at swole patrol before, always thought it was an org lmao
2020-09-18 16:36
nah, that's one of the reasons why swag was ditched in favor of eUnited back when Swole qualified for sydney, because eUnited offered salaries.
2020-09-18 16:49
yeah makes sense tbh I didnt remember that

So I’m 32 been playing since 2001 (quit from 2010-2016). I remember towards the end of 2010 in ESEA league I would check people’s profiles and everyone was 20+ besides the rare stewie at the time. The last 3 matches I played in open had a couple 16 year olds and 17 year olds. Also couple MDL teams in N/A have a young player core. All this news brings back memories of a dying scene but I try to remember how many youngin’s I see playing this game still compared to last time. Hopefully some big stuff happens after this pandemic that can keep CS:GO fresh and interesting! You always need the next generation in the waiting to keep something going. If only we could stay the same age :P

I'm sad. First Android leaves within a few hours of their first tournament and they have to play with 0 practice. Then Marke who is arguably their best player gets signed to Chaos. Infinite has to move because of the wildfires and they are unable to practice/play in their MDL games. Then the spots they earned are taken away due to roster changes outside their control. Watching this team go toe to toe and beat Chaos gave me hope, but I can't blame them for thinking they are spinning their wheels at this point.

This just reminds me of an interview with Maikelele where he just complained that the NA teams don't have the passion to stay orgless. They just go for a few months and then disband and create a new orgless roster a few months later. Remember that NoChance played for nearly 18 months before they got their first paycheck. But I guess it is easier in EU since you got all the betting company events against low tier teams.
2020-09-18 10:49
Well that, and in some EU countries you get decent unemployment, whereas in the US you become homeless

It's so funny no one is even surprised anymore, waiting for these guys to start playing valorant again to then come back to cs a month later
2020-09-18 11:34
There are no T2 orgs anymore, no sponsors left in lower-level CS aside from betting companies who probably ask players to matchfix. Obviously T2 scene is going to move to a better game with a healthy competitive scene.
2020-09-18 11:38
tier 2? oh, you mean tier four.
2020-09-18 20:33

2020-09-18 13:49
Imagine keep australian trash in 100T instead of signing swole patrol
2020-09-18 12:11
Can they all just move to Valorant instead cluttering HLTV news feed with every rebrand and disband?
2020-09-18 12:24
Perfect. Attention-seekers
2020-09-18 12:57

You can't pay rent with potential
2020-09-18 22:04
I'm really surprised that no org. took them, I really think they had potential.
2020-09-18 23:37

NA cs is pretty dead honestly, at least the tier below the top, everyone is playing valorant or whatever.
