New York (22 February 2018) – FlipSid3 Tactics has officially signed Maurice “Yukeo” Weihs as the final player in the starting Rocket League lineup. Yukeo will compete in the fifth season of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) alongside Francesco “Kuxir97” Cinquemani and team captain David “Miztik” Lawrie. The roster also recently added Connor “Jessie” Lansink as a substitute player following his performance at DreamHack Open Leipzig.
Yukeo’s first LAN experience with the roster came at DreamHack Leipzig in January 2018. The squad placed in the top eight with impressive wins against both Method and Splyce despite Miztik’s absence. Maurice had also filled the open spot in previous Gfinity Weekly Cups towards the tail end of 2017. He made his impression on the standing FlipSid3 roster in online play by showing off his remarkable mechanical skill despite playing from a massive deficit. Since then, the Austrian player has done nothing but impress his teammates both in and out of the game. Yukeo is among a rare breed in Rocket League as he is one of the handful of players at the professional level playing on a keyboard and mouse.

“All I can say is thanks. Thank you Miztik and Kuxir for giving me the chance to prove myself. I will do everything I can to make them happy,” said Yukeo.
The whole squad is excited for the opportunity to rebuild and re-establish FlipSid3 as a top team within the Rocket League scene. We look forward to seeing this fresh new roster do some damage in the upcoming RLCS season as well as other upcoming tournaments!
