After announcing their disbandment following their failure to qualify for the Frankfurt Major Regionals, Monkey Freedom Fighters have decided to keep the ball rolling a while longer and make the most out of the DreamLeague and Game Show Global eSports Cup spots they had already obtained.
WehSing “SingSing” Yuen and Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat will be accompanied by Ionuț“Ar1sE” Turtoi and Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho – at least for the time being.
Ar1sE, who was a stand-in for Arcade.PowerRangers for a brief period of time, told DotaBlast that the new MFF mix was put together especially for DreamLeague and Game Show.
I didn’t have a contract with Power Rangers. I merely played a couple of games with them, so it wasn’t anything set in stone. We’ve had a nice run, they’re all great guys. The MFF arrangement isn’t set in stone either. MFF have decided to keep the team going a while longer, since they had already secured spots in DreamLeague and Game Show. I’ll be a stand-in, it’s a temporary position, I haven’t made any final decisions yet. We’ll see how things go.
According to Ar1sE, the new MFF mix is still searching for a fifth member.
The squad made its first appearance during the post-TI5 shuffle, on August 22nd, when they participated in the ESL One New York Open Qualifiers. On August 27th, PARIS, 7ckngMad, YapzOr, Ar1sE, and SingSing registered for the Frankfurt Major. The team has since been invited to and participated in several tournaments and qualifiers.
When Ionuț “Ar1sE” Turtoi decided to leave the team and stand in for Arcade.PowerRangers, on September 25th, he was replaced by Selim “Neqroman” Oynar.
After failing to make it through the Frankfurt Major Open Qualifiers, Monkey Freedom Fighters announced their disbandment, on October 9th.
Monkey Freedom Fighters temporary roster:
- WehSing “SingSing” Yuen
- Yazied “Yapzor” Jaradat
- Ionuț “Ar1sE” Turtoi
- Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho
