Chayne joins Montreal after not being included in the Mirage Sport Électronique Mirage Sport Électronique Inactive core that eventually became Bermuda Bermuda Contenders NA Rank #16 . He and Wub were the only two from the Mirage core that didn't join Bermuda. Goliath's addition puts an end to his time as a free agent after he was dropped from XL2 Academy XL2 Academy Contenders NA Rank #6 alongside Cloneman16 and Mangachu when the organization chose to shift its focus to developing local talent.
Both Hooey and Tensa join from the remains of the First Generation First Generation Inactive roster, which has now become Second Generation Second Generation Contenders NA Rank #12 . Additionally, both of them were with First Generation since the team rebranded from GOATs back in November.
