Team Secret has brought in Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat in place of Johan “pieliedie” Åstrom in Team Secret after the Kiev Major.
The Team Secret roster now looks thus:
- Noa ‘MP’ Pyo
- Nai Zheng ‘MidOne’ Yeik
- Maurice ‘KheZu’ Gutmann
- Yazied ‘YapzOr’ Jaradat
- Clement ‘Puppey‘ Ivanov
The team shuffle comes as TI7 looms ever nearer, with May 16th the date to drop by and May 24th to pick up players.
One of the first to do so was Team Secret, who announced that they have decided to part ways with their longtime support player pieliedie.
This comes after a string of poor results for Team Secret. Although the team won the European Qualifiers for the Kiev Major with a clean sweep through the group stages, they were quickly eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the comparatively unknown Brazilian squad, SG-esports.
The transfer would leave the position fives support empty, meaning captain Clement ‘Puppey’ Ivanov reclaim that position, which means that new team member Yazied ‘YapzOr’ Jaradat, formally of team B)ears, will be filling the berth.
YapzOr is prominent for playing a very aggressive roaming support such as Mirana and is noted for his brilliance on Rubick.
As for pieliedie, within hours of Team Secret’s announcement Team NP revealed that they had acquired the player ahead of TI7. the player would see some familiar faces there too as he will soon feature alongside his former teammates on Cloud9 Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling and Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao.
