JUPITER JUPITER Inactive have added three new players and one new coach, all of which hail from South Korea. They are the first players from outside of Japan to join the roster. This follows the release of SamuraiD.

The team's first addition was tank DuDuDuDuDuDu , who previously played off-tank for Pacific Trials team We Can Only Play Goats.
JUPITER later revealed DPS HengGi , who shortly played for MVP Space earlier in the year, and tank Westep , who will be on his first Contenders roster.
They also revealed coach Sparkle , who is coaching his first Contenders roster.
Previously, JUPITER played an entirely Japanese roster based around former members of CYCLOPS athlete gaming. During the offseason, off-tank rayu and main tank SamuraiD left the team. Additionally, DPS ta1yo went to the bench late last season. The combination of those moves left the team with several roster openings.
JUPITER now have eight players on their roster and one coach.
Their new roster was defeated in their debut match against Xavier Esports.
They next play against the Pacific's only other Japanese team, Green Leaves, on June 20.
