In a bizarre turn of events following the recent roster changes in NA, Denial have decided to remove Todd "anger" Williams and bring back Jacob "FugLy" Medina.
It didn't take long after yesterday's change, which saw Jacob "FugLy" Medina removed to make room for returnee Nick "nitr0" Cannella in Denial's roster, for the team to make another move following a defeat against LunatiK in MLG X-Games NA qualifier #1.
Fielding their new lineup for the first time, with both Eric "adreN" Hoag and Cannella in action, Denial looked strong during the first map against LunatiK which they won in very convincing fashion, 16-2 on de_dust2.
However, they then fell on the following two maps, losing de_cache 6-16 and even de_overpass after a great T side (9-6) 13-16 overall.
Not more than 1 hour after the match ended, Todd "anger" Williams announced on his Twitter account that he was removed from the team in order for Medina to make a return, citing his poor performance at ESEA Season 17 Global Finals as a reason for the move.
A member of the team confirmed this roster change to HLTV.org, which makes Denial's lineup look like this now:
Since they have now been eliminated from the first MLG X-Games qualifier, Denial will have to look to qualify for the Aspen event via the second qualifier scheduled for Sunday, December 21st.
