I have left Fighting Pandas— EternaLEnVy (@EternaLEnVy1991) February 23, 2020
Several speculations aroused that EE has been kicked. However, Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling explained on his stream that both players received offers by a different organisation.
MoonMeander announced that the team was searching for subsitutes on his Twitter on Saturday. Apparently, the team was not informed about the players' departure much earlier. Therefore, it could have been a quite recent offer and EE and Sneyking migh not have planned to leave the team before the offer came.
Today we found out EternalEnvy and Sneyking has chosen to leave Fighting Pandas. We will look for standins for the Kiev Minor, thank you so much for your support. Me, bryle and Aui will be sticking together— David Tan (@MoonMeanderated) February 23, 2020
KheZu and Skiter to play for PandaS
The search for fitting substitutes quickly came to an end: Oliver 'Skiter' Lepko joins PandaS as carry player for the upcoming Minor, Maurice 'KheZu' Gutmann takes over the offlane role.
Skiter alias Oliver most recently played for the European teams Ninjas in Pyjamas and Aggressive Mode. KheZu has not been very actively involved in the pro scene in the last few months and only showed up in qualifiers. However, he ventured into the world of talents and joined DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major as caster.
Fighting PandaS' roster:
- Oliver 'Skiter' Lepko
- Jonathan Bryle 'Bryle' Santos De Guia
- Maurice 'KheZu' Gutmann
- Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling
- David 'Moonmeander' Tan
How do you think is the team going to perform?
