Post-LAN blues may be kicking in for some, as we are hearing that PENTA have dropped Erik ‘Froster‘ van den Biggelaar and Frantisek ‘A1GA‘ Kotacka.
The PENTA lineup has been one of the most stable rosters in the Battalion 1944 scene, announcing their lineup alongside the release of the game to early access. All that changes today as they announce a roster shuffle, dropping two players in hopes of replacing them in a timely fashion.
For those of you who have followed CoD4 in its heyday will recognise Erik ‘Froster‘ van den Biggelaar for his time in Power Gaming and Team Cooler-Master’s lineups. Generally considered to be a veteran of the scene, it will come to many as a surprise that he is being dropped in this manor. Frantisek ‘A1GA‘ Kotacka was known for his time playing Rainbow 6 Siege under PENTA, meaning his departure is also somewhat surprising.
The reasons for this change is rather obscure, but it could be down to the fact that they had a disappointing 3rd place finish at last months Insomnia 62 event. This is what Erik ‘Froster‘ van den Biggelaar had to say about the situation:
After a few internal issues, A1GA and me will no longer be a part of the PENTA Battalion 1944 lineup. Personally I might be interested in still playing, depends on where the game is going. Feel free to DM me here or on Discord. Big thanks to the guys and PENTA! See you next time!
