yay set to join MASSIVEimpact
According to sources close to Rush B Media, Jaccob 'yay' Whiteaker will be joining MDL team MASSIVEimpact. The NA team had been using Dylan 'RIKO' Sabin-Arnce since their formation as their fifth, playing in the beginning of MDL Season 30, the IEM Sydney NA Open Qualifier, and the beginning of the ECS Season 7 NA Cup. However, due to other job commitments he will be unable to continue playing with the team. Now they are looking to the ex-coL player to boost their roster.
The major attending player has not been on a team since his departure from compLexity on Christmas day, a team he most notably helped bring to Legend status for the on going IEM Katowice Major. Now he is taking a step into the lower tiers of CS to presumably IGL for MASSIVEimpact. There is no question that Jacob will be able to bring a vast level of knowledge to the roster, and will be a mentor of sorts for his new teammates.
Yay has responded to our report on reddit with the following statement:
"I'm still under contract for coL, however management has permitted to let me play with a team without an organization. I want to continue to practice, have a schedule, and improve while on the bench. FPL as many know is not very productive for practice sake, and completely different from actual team play."
As of now the roster will be as follows:
Marian 'tyfoon' Lesnic
Collin 'wrath' McSweegan
Sebastian 'seb' Bucki
Shawn 'witmer' Taylor
