The American esports organisation Extra Salt have confirmed the signing of Edgar “⁠MarKE⁠” Maldonado. The Mexican 22-year old comes in to replace Ian “motm” Hardy, who was deemed surplus to requirements and benched by the team in February.

MarKE has already played eight games for Extra Salt as a stand-in, having posted an overall rating of 1.09. After winning the sixth iteration of the ESEA Winter Cash Cup, Extra Salt chose to make the move a permanent one.

MarKE is most known for this time on teams like NRG, eUnited and most recently, Chaos. The Mexican is a well-rounded rifler by trade, and the Extra Salt core of oSee, Sonic and JT will hope that his addition can take them to the next level after losing floppy to Cloud9 in September of last year.

With the addition of MarKE, Extra Salt are now:

  • 🇿🇦 Sonic
  • 🇺🇸 oSee
  • 🇿🇦 JT
  • 🇨🇦 FaNg
  • 🇲🇽 MarKE
