Following the end of the third week of ESEA Invite Season 31, Kings Crew have announced that they will be dropping out of the final ESEA season in favor of the upcoming RGB LAN 4 in Philadelphia, citing issues with scheduling and player injury.
Kings Crew have had a turbulent season so far, with the team struggling to gain a single match, having lost the past seven straight matches. Following the team's announcement, we reached out to Medic lucrative, who was able to share some insight with us, and shared his thanks to those who supported Kings Crew throughout their whole endeavor.
bwelp had left for a three-week trip to see his family. We were already struggling to get a 6th player and picked up nomi last minute, and didn't really get to play with him, then he ended up having ongoing wrist problems. On top of that, paul was also going to be absent a week so we were gonna have to end up paying up three additional backups and it didn't seem worth it. We didn't feel we were playing up to our standard with a rotating lineup every night so we just decided it would be more fun to focus on our RGB roster and practice for whatever the new league is. The team is not dead though, we're just dropping ESEA.
Kings Crew also revealed to us their roster for RGB LAN, changing two for two as they drop nomi and exile for ringo and okiewaka.
Training in the armory for the time being, the Kings Crew roster is currently:
- Scout: bwelp
- Scout: ringo
- Roamer: okiewaka
- Pocket: pheLon
- Demoman: pauldogg
- Medic: lucrative
