nunya has decided to bow out of ETF2L Season 31, where they were previously tied for last place after two weeks of play, despite their smooth sailing going through the Premiership Qualifiers.
nunya's roots can be found all the way back in Season 19, but the team only became notable in Season 26, where they were among the first teams to qualify for Premiership, despite being relatively unknown at the time. The team spent the next two seasons getting used to playing in the top level, and while most of the historical members left in Season 28, Connor stuck around and created new iterations of nunya, combining up-and-comers with experienced players returning from hiatuses.
This approach helped nunya finally reach the playoffs in Season 29 but they were unable to play due to a Soldier drought forcing them to concede the spot to OMNI5 ESports EU.
The most recent iteration of nunya was built on the team's core from last season, with Connor retaining his title as the team leader. Joining the Condawg was the deadly Scout duo of nuthouse and Puoskari, alongside the Czech powerhouse lukas, and Opti and fluo rounding out the team on the Soldier roles. While not completely guaranteed for Playoffs, especially considering the competition in the season, the newly formed roster looked to be a solid underdog set to take a few upsets.
When the actual season came however, nunya were met with trouble starting with a close game against wer das liest ist doof — a team they had previously beaten in the Premiership qualifiers. Despite the team's best efforts, the mostly-German roster walked away with the majority of the points in the end. The team also suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the fellowship, losing both maps on round-difference and failing to convert a single round.
We got in touch with Connor, who shed a light on why the team chose to fold.
past month we havent had 4 maps with 6 mains, optis pc just died, lukas has ice hockey commitments, hes some sort of sick czech ice hockey player, puos net hasnt been working,and i just rly cba anymore. Also our next games are faint se7en ascent so we're just turning up to lose
When asked about his future, he simply stated:
me and papi are coming back together
Before realizing playing in Premiership was none of their business, nunya's roster was:
- Scout: Puoskari
- Scout: nuthouse
- Roamer: Opti
- Pocket: fluo
- Demoman: lukas
- Medic: Connor
