Guild Esports has officially revealed Daniel “Bluey” Bluett as their new Rocket League player. He had already been performing with the team over the offseason, but now his membership in the organization is official.
Bluey’s signing does not come as a surprise. After Thomas “Tho.” Binkhorst was released from Guild and Bluey left Galaxy Racer, rumors started popping up. Once he started playing offseason tournaments with the team, it was a matter of time before the official announcement came. A day before the WePlay Esports Rocket League Invitational, where Guild is set to compete, the full roster has been revealed.
WELCOME TO THE GUILD GANG @BlueyRL ! ❤️💙

Bluey turns Guild Esports fully English
Guild Esports now consists of a fully English roster, including the coach. With a line-up of David “Deevo” Morrow, Joseph “Noly” Kidd and Bluey, as well with as a coach Mike “Gregan” Ellis, Guild Esports is one of the top contenders for the 2021-22 season of RLCS.
Bluey is a long-standing name in Rocket League, having made his debut in RLCS Season 4, back in 2017. He was the MVP of the regular EU season in RLCS Season 8 as a player of FC Barcelona, and brings a heap of experience with him to Guild Esports. On Guild, he is reunited with Deevo, as the two played together on FC Barcelona in Seasons 7 and 8. He also played with Deevo in the early days of Rocket League before he broke out as a professional player.
Bluey’s best result came in RLCS Season 7, where he finished in second place in the European regular season. In both of his RLCS World Championship appearances (Seasons 4 and 7) he finished in fifth-sixth place.
“It feels amazing to play with Deevo again,” Bluey said. “Me and Dave have such an amazing connection together. We just know each other. And of course, Deevo and Noly being scousers, they know each other very well. So the three of us, it’s basically like a family and it’s a great team environment.”
Bluey has already made his unofficial debut, but is set to make it official on Thursday, Sept. 15, at the WePlay Esports Rocket League Invitational. Then, a month later, they will compete in the RLCS 2021-22 season.
