kevster last played for Orgless & Hungry in Contenders Season 2 Europe, qualifying for the playoffs with the roster before exiting in the quarterfinals. Stand1 previously played as a flex tank for Foxes and will now be making his transition into main tank.
Byrem was briefly a member of BlossoM in January, but was removed from the team due to boosting. HelloImHalo made it to the Open Division Season 2 North America playoffs with TGC. He has not played in Contenders previously.
Notable omissions include robdab, who was released by the team yesterday and is looking for a new team, Fahzix and Stratus. There have been no announcements regarding either player.
The new roster will debut in the BEAT Invitational Season 5 on Friday, October 19. Their first match will be against Phase 2.
