Just before the European Gauntlet, Burrito SMITE has decide to release British Hunter, Thomas “Lace” Jack. Despite his performance in the Challenger Cup Finals against Circa eSports EU, the team decided it would be their best option to use substitute player, Jack “JustJack” Butler, in the Hunter role against Cyclone this coming Saturday.
Captain Willem “DeathPanter” Hoste has the following statement upon the player swap:
It’s sad that is had to go this way, but our synergy with Lace had reached such a low, it was affecting us mentally and play wise. We therefore decided to part ways with Lace as our Hunter. Due to the short time we have; looking for a new Hunter and building up synergy is not going to be an option, but our substitute JustJack has been performing well and we are fully confident that he will be able to fill the fifth spot. Despite these unfortunate circumstances we are very hyped and confident to play in the Gauntlet.
We would like to thank Thomas for his time spent with the Burrito organization, and wish him the best of luck in his career moving forward.
