Having narrowly secured their seat in New Jersey for the first RGL LAN event, Kings Crew have swapped in laz to replace their coach-turned-Pocket paddie, who has jumped over to rivals froyotech to close the season.
laz is yet again playing alongside longtime teammate sandblast, having debuted in Invite together ESEA Season 24 and last playing together in ESEA-IM Season 28 on Faint Gaming. Since then, laz has scored strong second-places with Ascent in both ESEA and i65.
Kings Crew narrowly beat out Highfive Demoman for fourth seed at LAN, rounding out the playoffs group with froyotech, 100 Beasts and Rat Jail. Team leader sandblast shared the circumstances behind the roster move with us:
Paddie is likely not staying after this season due to life commitments so he wanted to secure a 1st place bag. laz is a long time friend of mine and a top player. We will be shifting trip to pocket and laz will be playing roamer.
The Kings Crew roster for LAN will be:
- Scout: sandblast
- Scout: yosh
- Roamer: laz
- Pocket: tripbwai
- Demoman: sighguy
- Medic: b3arodactyl
