Leaving Uprising Academy / LFT:— Hyp (@hypnottow) April 7, 2019
Hypnott's departure leaves Uprising Academy without a main tank player, despite still having six players in total on their total roster. Norwegian main tank Decod was recently seen filling Hypnott's role in their 3-2 loss to Bermuda Bermuda Contenders NA Rank #16 .
In his twitlonger post about the matter, he reflects on his time with the team, and brought to light that he played under Uprising Academy as an unsigned player. His twitlonger post is below:
decided last week to leave UA on my own terms. I have the utmost respect for everyone on the academy team & hope nothing but the best for them. There's no doubt that they should make playoffs & have a lot of faith in the team to turn the season around. I played unsigned for UA throughout this entire season & will currently be exploring options for the remainder of this contenders season.
Uprising Academy will have to field a North American native for their starting main tank position, as Contenders only allows three international players to be fielded on a roster. Their three international players are Asking , punk , and Klaus .
- Nicolas "Klaus" Ferrari (DPS)
- William "Asking" Vetter (DPS)
- "iced" (DPS)
- Leyton "punk" Gilchrist (Off-tank)
- Hunter "Dino" Traupe (Flex Support)
- Gabriel "Swimmer" Levy (Support)
And their staff are:
