Swole Patrol disbanded
Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro reported on his Twitter about the disband Swole Patrol. He stated that the professional scene in CS:GO is now in a tough position, so the players have decided to move independently in different directions.
Unfortunately Swole Patrol is disbanding permanently, the CSGO scene is in a rough spot currently and players want to move in different directions. There should be some announcements from everyone explaining their future moving forward. Thank you for the support while we lasted.— Jordan Montemurro (@Zellsis) September 17, 2020
The last composition of Swole Patrol first gathered under the Ze Pug Godz banners in July this year. It included Zellsis as well as Austin "Cooper-" Abadir, Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado, Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor and Gage "Infinite" Green. The team qualified for the North American division of DreamHack Open Summer 2020, beating Chaos and TeamOne, but soon after ANDROID announced his departure, he was replaced by Will "dazzLe" Loafman, with whom the squad took 5th-6th place at the DreamHack Open Summer 2020 and lost to Chaos in the final qualifying for the FunSpark ULTI.
Later, Austin "Cooper-" Abadir's team was invited for the IEM New York 2020 regional RMR tournament, and at the end of August replaced MarKE with Maxim "wippie" Shepelev. At the same time, the Russian citizen did not have time to apply for the event, so coach Ian "Immi" Harding had to play the role of a stand-in there.
In a comment for HLTV.org wippie said that at the moment he had not decided on the continuation of his career, but definitely wanted to stay in CS:GO. In turn, dazzLe promised to release an announcement in the near future, and Zellsis in a conversation with a journalist Dust2.us noted that he was not sure about the future game in CS:GO.
