Ronin Esports has officially signed Kyle “Nemassist” Kubina, rounding out the competitive Halo roster with their fourth member. “Nemassist” has had a strong showing through the current pro league season, ranked in the top-10 in KDA at 1.70.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining Ronin and to be teaming with three very talented players. It’s great to be teaming with Suspector and eL ToWn again, and hopefully we’re able to improve on the success we had in the past,” Kubina said of joining the team.
“Nemassist” played alongside both “eL ToWn” and “Suspector” on Velocity eSports in 2015, and has a history dating back to to 2013 with “Suspector.” That familiarity, along with his consistency in competing in the Halo pro circuit, should help the transition period run smoothly.
“I am very excited to have Kyle “Nemassist” Kubina join and complete our roster for the rest of the Halo Championship Series and DreamHack Denver. I think that Kyle is a very smart player, he makes good in-game decisions and knows how to play his life when he needs to,” Halo team manager Lenny said of the acquisition.
Kubina will transition from being a key member of Team Naventic to join Ronin. “Nemassist” had the least total deaths on Naventic through the first four HCS fall series, along with the highest amount of damage dealt per death.
“We as a team think that Kyle is what we were missing, and his play style fits best with our team. We only have three pro league matches left (OpTic, Team EnVyus and Evil Geniuses), but still have a goal to secure top-four. I am very confident in my team going forward, and I know we will place very well at DreamHack Denver,” Lenny said of the team going forward.
The Halo team has approximately two weeks before competitive play ramps back up, allowing the new squadmates a window of opportunity to mesh before the last leg of pro league begins. Their returning game will be against Team EnVyus on Wed., Sept. 20.
