Epsilon have added former Method player Tom “jenko” Jenkinson to their roster, Owen “smooya” Butterfield unveiled on twitter this morning. He is set to be replacing Cosmin “cosmeeeN” Mihai in the roster, after jenko had been seen replacing the Romanian player in recent events as a stand-in.
The announcement was made official hours before Smooya left for the bootcamp with his teammates, and organisation, to prepare for Copenhagen Games, where they’re still currently signed-up with cosmeeeN. jenko’s performances with the roster have so far been well enough that they have made the move a permanent one.

Jenko is no stranger to the Epsilon team, standing in for them as early as February 10th in online leagues, and has since been in and out of the squad. While initially foregoing matches with the team due to illness, he recently stepped down for personal reasons, leaving Jenko as a starting player. Cosmeeen’s most recent tweet, from the 6th of march, eludes to this roster change.
jenko has been the predominant substitute for the Epsilon side as they competed as fish123 in the ESL Premiership, replacing a European team member who was usually cosmeeeN. The ‘mix’ have found success there, standing on six wins to one loss at the top of Group A. With this change, Epsilon now enjoy a majority UK roster, and can generally be considered as potentially the strongest side to do so.
Epsilon’s refined roster is as follows:
Owen “smooya” Butterfield
Kia “Surreal” Man
Tom “jenko” Jenkinson
Robin “robiin” Sjögren
Konstantinos “tsack” Theodoropoulos
