EU rostermania post-Toronto is fully underway. Connor “Weeman” Chilton and Harry “Harry” Payne are the latest two players to find new homes heading into Elite Stage 4.
Weeman, previously of Team WaR, will play with the Toronto Ultra Academy in EU.
Harry will move to fill that gap in the Team WaR roster. He is still the London Royal Ravens designated substitute player.
Harry was taken out of the London staring roster once Joey “Gismo” Owen became available to be back in the United States.
This is the second time that the Toronto Ultra Academy team in EU has been forced to make a change this season as a result of the London team making changes.
They previously had the rug pulled from under them just days before the Pro-Am. They were told that Harry was getting put into the starting roster and had to find a sub immediately.
Rafi “Rafi” Kazi stood in for that event but was quickly replaced by Gismo.
Harry will now return to EU Challengers to compete alongside Jack “Maple” McCartney, Bjarne “Denza” Sleebus and Elliot “Wardy” Ward.
Team WaR were ready for a change in roster after a couple of sub-par placements in their last two tournaments.
WaR have also secured the signing of former Florida Mutineers coach, Ricky Atura. He will come into the team to try and assist with their efforts heading into the home straight of the season.
Ready for WaR
Team WaR CEO Kevin Pichardo told The Rotation: “As a staple organization in Challengers, we hold high expectations of ourselves for our fan base.
“We have a winning history and are doing everything we can to get back to those roots. With these pieces we are adding to the team, we have a great shot at championship contention.
“We wish the best for Weeman, we just need a change of pace that we feel Harry can compliment.
“We also are really happy to bring on Atura with his great resume of experience in the league with Florida. Also, it’s full circle since he played for us in the past. Stay tuned because we are ready for WAR.”
Challengers Elite Stage 4 qualifiers are this weekend. Neither team WaR, nor Ultra Academy EU need to qualify as both teams made the top four of Stage 3.
