Zeal Esports officially released founding member and resident sentinel Vince “Flash” Medado after temporarily benching him from the roster.
“Vince “Flash” Medado, one of Zeal’s founding members will be finally released from the Zeal Esports roster, he was benched temporarily from the main roster,” Zeal Esports wrote in their post.
According to the same post, letting go of Flash was a tough decision from Zeal.
“We express our utmost gratitude for him being part of our growing family and the many wild and intense games he played with his teammates. Bidding farewell to ‘Flash’ is difficult for us,” Zeal revealed.
Meanwhile, Flash himself was grateful for what Zeal has provided for his budding esports career.
“Huge thanks to [Zeal Esports] because tungod nila na achieve nako akoang goal as a pro player. Never ko ga expect na maabot kog ing ani na position kung dili tungod nila and daghan kog nakat-unan nila. [I] wish them good luck sa future [Huge thanks to Zeal Esports because if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t have achieved my goal as a pro player. I never expected to be in this position if it weren’t for Zeal Esports and I definitely learned a lot thanks to them. I wish them good luck in the future],” Flash revealed.
For now, there’s no news yet as to where Flash would be playing for, as he previously revealed that he was looking for a new team to represent back when he was a restricted free agent.
Meanwhile, despite previously conducting a tryout, Zeal Esports has yet to reveal their new players for their roster. However, they have been previously playing with former Oasis Gaming Cyle “beats” Pontilar — who was Keith “FIRESYJN” Madarang’s college teammate for USC Warrior’s Arena’s VALORANT team — prior to their sudden hiatus (which was caused by Typhoon Rai’s/Typhoon Odette’s aftermath).
