This came after parting ways with Scaler and Phatt , both of whom will be retiring from competitive Overwatch.

Scaler and Phatt joined the Uprising Academy in June and December of 2019, respectively. Both had previously been teammates on the Contenders Europe team One.PoinT in 2018. The two have not seen much success in 2020, finishing in 9-12th place in the Contenders Seeding Tournament before failing to qualify for Contenders through Trials in both weeks played so far. The two will be retiring from the competitive scene, citing dissatisfaction in the tier 2 scene.

They will be replaced by Doggo and SixFeet, having previously played for Revival and T1, respectively. Doggo finished in the first round of Contenders Week 2 with Revival, losing out to Triumph. The week before, they fell in the quarterfinals to eventual runners-up Team Envy. SixFeet played for T1 in the Contenders Korea Seeding Tournament as one of the few Western players to play in Contenders Korea. He and the team fell in the first round of the lower bracket to Meta Athena. This will be SixFeet's first time playing in Contenders North America.
