Get Bronco Gets A New Face
Another Gears esports roster has changed today with Get Bronco, formerly known as Kingsmen, dropping Dillon “Legend” Gray in favor of Ethan “Celend” McMasters. I spoke with Tanner “Rain” Ethridge, a member of Get Bronco, to see if he was more confident with this roster and here’s what he had to say:
I'm feeling infinitely more confident in this lineup. Out of respect for Legend, I might [not] go too much into what was missing with the old lineup, but we just didn't have "it." I'm no fool, I was well aware that the picking up of Celend would not be a popular one and would probably draw the crosshairs for jokes and insults on Twitter and what not. It really comes down to this; we are confident in what Celend brings to the table. He's a smart dude, regardless of what other people think about him. He has a really good understanding of the game, especially respawn gametypes, and with Escalation being the main focus of the new title, I feel like that is unquantifiable in its value.
I also wanted to get Legend's perspective on the matter
Well I've been friends with [Brad] DPoints [Willink] for about 10 years. I feel like they did me dirty and I wasn't at all the problem on the team. Because the only qualifier we played in as a full team we got 5-8th. They basically acted super shady the last week because I haven't been on and appeared offline yesterday just to drop the news on me. I definitely feel like I will prove a point every time I play them from here on out.
Roster changes always make for great new rivalries and, though Legend does not currently have a new team, it should be interesting to see how the two parties faceoff against each other in the upcoming season.
The current Get Bronco roster is as follows:
- Brad "DPoints" Willink
- Joe "Cinellz" Cinelli
- Saied “Diligent” Abuhadba
- Tanner "Rain" Ethridge
- Ethan "Celend" McMasters
