decided last week to leave UA on my own terms. I have the utmost respect for everyone on the academy team & hope nothing but the best for them. There's no doubt that they should make playoffs & have a lot of faith in the team to turn the season around. I played unsigned for UA throughout this entire season & will currently be exploring options for the remainder of this contenders season.

Uprising Academy will have to field a North American native for their starting main tank position, as Contenders only allows three international players to be fielded on a roster. Their three international players are Asking , punk , and Klaus .
