Interstella's disqualification has also lead to changes in the Contenders seeding. Bin Chickens have now been seeded in Group A, with PIXL filling their spot in group B.
This isn't the first time that disciplinary action has lead to a major shakeup in Contenders Australia. Three Alter Ego players were banned just days before the commencement of Season 1, ultimately dooming the chances of the once promising squad in the tournament.
