Previously a member of top North American team FaZe Clan, Erik "TwoEasy" van Hoorn announced via Twitter that he will be playing with his new brainchild: Bench Boys. Not one to shy away from puns and wordplay, he originally formed WEUNITED after REUNITED kicked him this past summer. Of course, WEUNITED later went on to become the core of FaZe Clan, and TwoEasy hopes to demonstrate the same success with his new team.
The team is formed of numerous vagrants. TwoEasy and Kryw were both benched by their previous team, while Kyb was shackled by contract jail after his stint with REUNITED. Hal and Greyy are both lesser-known players who have limited competitive experience, though it must be said that the more experienced players must trust them enough given their relatively successful pasts.
Currently, the Bench Boys roster is as follows:
- Erik "TwoEasy" van Hoorn (Flex)
- Finley "Kyb" Adisi (Flex)
- Jonathan "Kryw" Nobre (Flex)
- Thomas "Hal" Avallone (Support)
- Luís "Greyy" Perestrelo (Support)
As TwoEasy stated earlier, the team is currently waiting to announce their main tank, though many speculate that it could be Nicolas "skipjack" Rosada, a previous member of Rogue. While he was a teammate of current member Kryw, the pair have never won a LAN event together, given skipjack's absence at the Overwatch Open and Kryw's benching at DreamHack Winter. Sergi "Winghaven" Torras is also an option for the team as an ex-member of REUNITED, but for now all the public can do is speculate.
