The roster has a lone addition in Ripa , who joins the team after entering free agency in mid-October. Ripa was on the Gladiators' roster previously. He is filling the team's vacancy after former flex support bock1 chose to retire in early October.
This announcement also signaled the departure of DPS player Tsuna . His departure leaves only Dannedd and SparkR as the team's DPS players.
