After two years in the scene, Spylce has parted ways with its Super Smash Bros divison.

Splyce signedMichael “Nintendude” Brancato and McCain “MacD” LaVelle, two of the biggest SSBM stars, back in 2015 when the team was known as Follow eSports back in August 2015.

The news will not come as a surprise to the avid fighting game fan. Nintendude and MacD haven’t been performing well over the past two years after hitting heights in the 2015 season. The pair have failed to reach the top eight of a major tournament in the past year, except for Nintendude’s top eight finish at Royal Flush on May 14.

At his heights, MacD was considered the best Peach player in the United States and was a solid contender for the second best Peach player in the world, just behind Adam “Armada” Lindgren.

Now MacD and Nintendude will have to find new homes, while Splyce focuses on its teams in games like League of Legends, Call of Duty, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
