New Recruit: Zachary “Gild” Dennis
The latest addition to the roster is 20-year-old sensation, Zachary “Gild” Dennis. Gild joins Moist Esports after an impressive stint with regional powerhouse NRG. He will now team up with Australian talents Ben “Wxltzy” Walton, previously of the well-known unsigned APAC South squad Team Burger, and Matthew “Emtee” Trengove, who has experience with EXO Clan, Team Rejects, and Team Burger.
Signs Were There: A Seamless Transition
Gild’s arrival to Moist Esports didn’t come out of the blue. The signs of this transfer were visible as he had been trialing with the Moist Esports squad earlier in the month. During these trials, Gild participated in APAC South scrims and was part of the winning roster in the Kurupt Cup on October 12. His individual performance was noteworthy, recording 17 kills, 19 assists, and 7,600 damage across six games. Such displays have earned Gild a reputation as a prodigious talent in the ALGS.
A Rising Star: Gild’s Journey
Gild began his journey in the ALGS on the now-disbanded Team Liquid roster, which secured second place at the 2022 Split 2 playoffs. His remarkable skills on that team caught the attention of NRG, leading to his signing with them in August 2022.
Expectations were high when Gild joined NRG, as it was believed that his firepower combined with Christopher “sweetdreams” Sexton’s in-game leadership would elevate NRG to super team status. They did experience some success initially, clinching second place during this year’s Split One Playoffs. However, they struggled to replicate that success, with fellow in-game leader Phillip “ImperialHal” Dosen even criticizing Sweet’s management of Gild during this year’s Split Two Playoffs.
A New Chapter for Moist Esports
Moist Esports has had a commendable record in the ALGS, having qualified for all three LAN events in 2023. Their best performance was a sixth-place finish in the Split One Playoffs. With a regional shift and the addition of Gild, the upcoming season holds both challenges and opportunities for Moist Esports. The team aims to make its mark in 2024 with a refreshed roster and renewed determination.
Stay tuned for more updates as Moist Esports continues to evolve and adapt in the ever-competitive world of ALGS.
