MeepeY Joins eUnited as Analyst

The two times ex-Minor champion and Major semi-finalist of Matthew "meepeY" Sharples has joined the North American League team of eUnited as an analyst

MeepeY Joins eUnited as Analyst

MeepeY began his career back in Year 1 alongside the players of Panix, Elemzje and ENEMY where he won one of the very first R6 LAN events at DreamHack Tours 2016 during Season 1 before finishing Season 3 as the runners-up behind Continuum. From here he requalified for the Pro League in Season 4 alongside the fellow Brit of Lacky, the two Swedes of Renuilz and sno0ken and the Danish analyst of z1ronic who finished Seasons 4, 5 and 6 in the mid-table before the team split apart after failing to qualify for the 2018 Six Invitational. 

From here, the team split into two -- later known as Chaos Esports Club and Team Secret -- forcing meepeY to once again requalify for the Pro League now on a British majority lineup. Over the next year, the team won DreamHack Valencia 2018 and the 2019 Allied Minor as well as the Challenger League only to be relegated back down to the Challenger League two seasons later. As well as this, they also finished in the top four at both the Paris Major and the Raleigh Major despite struggling in the Pro and then Challenger League as they became known as a LAN-team.

Now, after two back-to-back failed Challenger League campaigns, meepeY has left Secret and moved to a new job as an analyst for the North American League team of eUnited:

eUnited joined the scene at the end of last year with the acquisition of the Season 10 North American Challenger League victors of Obey Alliance and the pickup of two new players in Yeti, the ex-Pro player for Noble esports, and Alphama, the French player who had recently left the current Rogue lineup. Since then the team played in just a single competitive tournament in the Pro League in which they finished in seventh place with three wins against Reciprocity, TSM and Tempo Storm, and eight losses. 

Following this disappointing performance, the team's British analyst of Declan "Bugs" McWilliams left the lineup due to the team "deciding to go in a new direction with their analytical work" with meepeY now stepping into this role alongside their relatively new coach of Bagel who joined following his third-place finish at the Six Invitational while on Team SoloMid.

While meepeY will be unable to work in person with the lineup due to the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown, it is likely that this is the plan once restrictions are lifted which would make meepeY the fifth European to be flown over to take part in the North American scene after SlebbeN, Gomfi, Alphama and Sloppy. This roster move, therefore, creates the following lineup which we will next see in action in the lower-bracket of the DBNO charity tournament against Spacestation Gaming on Monday:

 Pablo "Gryxr" Rebeil 
Seth "Callout" Mik
 Roman "Forrest" Breaux
 Alexander "Yeti" Lawson
 Léo "Alphama" Robine
"Bagel" (coach)
