Been a while, but we're now back and ready to announce our roster for Contenders Trials season 2!— Young and Beautiful (@YaB_OW) May 9, 2019
Come watch us today as we face @ClockVendetta !
Among the new faces are Yiqids , FDGoD , brussen , and coach DavidS. Yiqids joins the team from One.PoinT after the squad finished in the top six in the most recent Contenders season, narrowly escaping being relegated back to Trials. FDGoD and brussen haven't been seen around Contenders competition for a while, as the former did not find success in reaching Contenders with HSL Esports, while the latter was last seen on the final iteration of Bazooka Puppiez in Contenders 2018 Season 3 Europe. As for DavidS, he is a new face to the high tier Overwatch scene and was recently picked up from the Open Division team fenix. He is the only staff member currently on the team.
As for the team's now former staff members, Fichael , Cija , and Maff , Maff left in late April while Fichael departed in early May in search of other opportunities. Maff had been a part of the team since Young and Beautiful's previous trials run to begin 2019, while Fichael joined the team alongside Jona in early March. Just recently, however, manager Cija was announced as the most recent of departures from the unsigned European squad.

Sometimes you gotta let go. I'm no longer working for @YaB_OW . I've learned so much, from all aspects of being in a team, did head coaching, player coaching, managing and what nots. But that's the thing, I want to go developing myself as a data analyst. Thank you for the ride.— Maff (@maffthinks) April 26, 2019
It is with sadness that we announce Cija moves on from YaB at the end of the season. We give a huge thanks to her for all she did to bring the team through Contenders Trials and ensured YaB remained in T2. We know she'll shine in her new position!— Young and Beautiful (@YaB_OW) April 10, 2019
