He has been replaced by Pookz .

This will not be Pookz's first time with NRG. He was a member of NRG's first Overwatch roster when the organization signed mixup in July of 2016. He remained with the organization until October when he was removed in the first of many roster changes NRG would undergo in an effort to build a winning squad.

Pookz went on to play for a number of different teams until he settled with Gladiators Legion in February 2018. He remained with the team for a year, qualifying for the playoffs in three straight Contenders seasons without making it past the quarterfinal in any one of them. He left Gladiators Legion last month.

HelloImHalo made his Contenders debut in Season 3 2018 with NRG. That was his only season in Contenders before leaving the team.

NRG play in the newly created North America West region. Their first match is March 6 against Second Generation.
