High Coast add motm on trial
The American rifler officially joins the team after playing a number of matches for them as a stand-in.
High Coast have announced the addition of Ian "motm" Hardy to their roster on a trial basis. The former Cloud9 member, who was benched by Extra Salt in February to make room for Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado following a string of lacklustre results, has already played a number of matches for his new team, whom he helped to reach the semi-finals of DreamHack Open March.
The Swedish organisation also confirmed the departures of Jonathan "djay" Dallal and Ramal "Rampage" Silva, while simultaneously confirming that they have completed the loan signing of Rodrigo "RCF" Figueiredo, who has been playing for the team since January.
motm's addition to the roster reunites him with Ben "ben1337" Smith and Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue, with whom he previously played on Vireo.pro and Party Astronauts prior to linking up with the members of Extra Salt in August 2019.
High Coast are next set to participate in the VENN Invitational, the North American regional qualifier for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, with their first match pitting them against Rebirth on Friday at 22:15 . The team have also secured a playoff berth in ESEA Premier Season 37, with the league taking a three-week break before the bracket stage gets underway.
High Coast's roster now looks as follows:
