Following multiple changes in the off-season, which included the surprise departure of Keven "AZK" Lariviere from his longtime teammate Eric "adreN" Hoag, Curse has officially made changes to their roster. Lariviere will rejoin the Curse lineup after just a few weeks away on Homeless. Homeless appears to be without a 5th after they did not have a spot in the ESEA-Invite division following a format change
that lowered the amount of teams. Also rejoining the team to replace the already departed
Justin "mosbeck" Mosbeck will be Stan "stan^" Sukachov, who left following the teams struggle at DreamHack Summer.
AZK with Curse at the S14 LAN Finals
The Curse squad had been playing with Moe "moE" Assad and Sukachov after the Season 14 LAN Finals for the MSI Beat iT! and ESWC qualifiers. The team had not yet officially announced their lineup, and told ESEA News that nothing would be announced until after the qualifiers had completed. It appears that they will make the change now, before the end of the qualifiers, which may disqualify them from the ESWC NA Qualifier tournament, unless Assad decides to play with them.
Curse AWPer, Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham, had this to say about the teams decision to revert the roster, "With our recent lineup changes we feel it's best to come back to the original five that we had the most experience and chemistry with. With all personal issues aside we are heading back to the drawing board to continue playing with our all or nothing line-up."
The team will kick off Season 15 of the ESEA Invite Division on October 6th, 2013 and will most likely be seen at the recently announced $250,000 DreamHack Winter
event. Stay tuned to ESEA News for more details on roster changes in ESEA-Invite and possible changes coming to the Homeless roster.
