Lazarus sign yay to CS:GO roster

North American esports org Lazarus, has signed Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker to their Counter-Strike roster, the organization announced via Twitter.

The American CS:GO competitor has spent time with a variety of NA organizations like Noble Esports and eUnited, and was part of compLexity Gaming's celebrated Top 8 run at the 2018 London Major.

But after a decline back into mediocrity for the team, yay was benched in December of last year and went on to play for mixed teams like Bad News Bears.

NRG pick up stanislaw and drop daps

After recently departing compLexity Gaming, Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz has been picked up by NRG and will replace fellow Canadian Damian "daps" Steele on NRG's active lineup, the organization announced on Tuesday.

Having spent the last 14 months with compLexity, helping the squad register a Top 8 finish at the 2019 FACEIT London Major, stanislaw will make his NRG debut on Wednesday, June 12 at the Americas Minor NA Closed Qualifier as NRG competes for a spot in the Berlin Major.

While daps isn't being dropped entirely from the organization, he posted a statement to Pastebin that describes his current situation as "uncertain" and that he's open to "offers in any field"
