Ghost Looking to part ways with steel, Subroza Tapped as his Replacement
Updated: Mar 8, 2019
According to sources close to Rush B Media, Ghost Gaming is potentially looking to part ways with in-game leader Joshua "steel" Nissan. We have been told by one source that there have been internal issues within the roster, specifically revolving around their communication. We have also been informed that Ghost are in talks with Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik, who they replaced with Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir just over one month ago. The team has practiced with Yassine over the past few days, with steel reportedly not even on the server, further affirming the fact that he has a high chance of returning to the roster. Though he would would be replacing Steel, this doesn't mean he’d take over the role of in game leader should he come back into the fold.
Since removing Subroza, the team had managed to grab a 3-4th place finish at the disastrous iBP Masters and just barely missed out on qualifying for IEM Sydney. They may not have been playing much, but there definitely wasn't anything within their game-play to raise any red flags. Despite this, it's clear that something unseen to the public eye has been going on for Ghost to allegedly be removing Joshua, their leader who most notably brought them to a 2nd place finish in the online part of ESL Pro League Season 8. At this time, It is unknown if Subroza would be a permanent fifth for the team, but changes definitely seem to be in the works for the roster.
If the changes go through, Ghost Gaming’s roster will be as follows.
Matthew "Wardell" Yu
Kenneth "koosta" Suen
Jason "neptune" Tran
Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir
Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik
James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (Coach)
