Nuclear Storm Gaming were frantically looking for a fifth player to join their roster before i61 only to find themselves in a worse spot after the event. Sam “Diablo” Bide and Luke “LeLewk” Terry stepped down from the roster after the team’s 13-16th place finish at i61, leaving the Irish organisation with two new holes to fill.
Last night the organisation announced the two new players filling these post-LAN gaps. These new additions to the team show an old face returning to the scene after a hiatus, and a fresh-faced youngster team up with the NSG roster.
Carl “Peggy” Kneale will be returning to the scene in by joining NSG after a break from competitive gaming. He saw success across various rosters in 2015-2016 before diving underground at the beginning of this year after attending the TLR roster he was in fell apart. He is joined by 16 year old Liam “Murky” Smallwood who is looking to get his first taste of the competitive UK scene.
The new Nuclear Storm Gaming roster is:
Matty “Xacty” Williams
Mitchell “Ducky” Robertson
Joseph “Cloudy” Yearley
Liam “Murky” Smallwood
Carl “Peggy” Kneale
