The roster will include ta1yo and AmeKen at DPS, rayu at off-tank, SamuraiD at main tank, SABAGOD as flex support and CLAIRE as main support. The organization trialed bata at main tank but ultimately went with SamuraiD.

CYCLOPS finished second in Contenders Season 2 Pacific after a 4-2 defeat to Talon Esports in the grand final. They were the first Japanese team to make the playoffs of a major Pacific region competition.
Despite their success, the organization departed from Overwatch and the roster disbanded. As a result, none of the team's players are competing in the ongoing Contenders Pacific Season 3. In fact, there are no Japanese players competing in the current season of Contenders Pacific.
The roster of JUPITER will hope to return to Contenders Pacific competition in the first season of 2019. They are currently 4-0 in Open Division.
