Highlights
Quincy Crew have parted ways with Ponlo and MiLAN following their 3rd place finish in the NA DPC 2021/22 Tour 2.
Following these departures, only carry YawaR, midlaner Quinn, and offlaner KheZu remain in the lineup.
Hours before the roster change was announced, MiLAN posted: "I'll just thank you for the betrayal, in time" (According to Google Translate). It is unclear if this Tweet was related to the roster change.

Quincy Crew announces the departure of Ponlo and MiLAN

In a Twitter post announcing the departures, Quincy Crew thanked the two players for their “passion and hard work” during the two DPC tours that they competed with each other “under difficult circumstances.”

In their time with Quincy Crew, the supporting duo helped the team win the DPC NA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Division I, finish third at both the DPC NA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Finals and the DPC NA 2021/2022 Tour 2.

Following these two departures, Quincy Crew is down to just three players:

  • Yawar "YawaR" Hassan

  • Quinn "Quinn" Callahan

  • Maurice "KheZu" Gutmann

The team has until May 29th to lock its roster for the third tour of the DPC 2021/22 season. Hence it has plenty of time to find the optimal roster that fits its playstyle and goals for the upcoming DPC Tour.

MiLAN seemingly expresses frustration with this decision

Hours before the news of the roster change was posted, MiLAN posted a message on his Twitter that may indicate that the split was not as amiable as it may seem. In his native Serbian language, he said: “I'll just thank you for the betrayal, in time" (According to Google Translate). It is unclear if this Tweet was related to the roster change.

On the other hand, following the NA DPC 2021/22 Tour 2 tiebreaker loss, Ponlo announced he would take some time off. The player might return to the SEA servers to resume his bid for a place at The International 11 (TI11).

The Third Tour of the DPC 2021/22 season is scheduled to commence in June 2022. Considering the fact that this is the last chance for teams to secure DPC points for their hopes of a direct invite to TI11, we can expect plenty more roster shuffles across all the regions as teams may attempt to make tweaks to their lineup heading into the tail-end of the DPC season.
