Year 2 Season 2 starts with NA musical chairs!

We finally have the list of 8 teams going into Pro League this season thanks to this post by Ubi, but what it doesn't say is all the shuffling of players that happened among those teams!

Let's take a look at all the changes we saw among them, partially thanks to Ominous disbanding (leaving BKN and Bryan stranded):

  • Flipsid3
    • Zilchy and ezpzlmnsqz dropped to pick up Adam from Vertical Gaming and Chala from Lethal Gaming

  • Vertical Gaming
    • Snake-nade retired, Slashug and Yung return from Continuum

  • Elevate
    • Dropped Easily and picked up Chapstick from Ominous and Shuttle from Xbox

  • Continuum
    • Picked up Jarvis and BC from Ominous

  • Most Wanted
    • Picked up Geo from Elevate

  • Ferocity (formerly Infrared/Lion Guard/Roger Dodger)
    • Dropped Krusher and Achieved to pick up ThinkingNade and Mas from Most Wanted

 

 

 

 

 

  • 1nfamy & Omen (formerly Lunatik)
    • No Changes

 

What does that mean for this season?

  • Flipsid3 hopefully rebounding a bit from their LAN performance.
  • Vertical Gaming lost the last remaining original player, but regained some strong players back. They will do well.
  • Elevate pick up even more heavy fraggers, they are going to be killing a LOT this season.
  • Continuum didn't work well with Slashug so they sent him back and picked up two insane players from a rival in the process. They will be very strong.
  • Most Wanted lose a good player (Mas) for a good player (Geo). Hoping they can step things up this season.
  • Ferocity showed a lot of promise in Challenger League and pick up 2 good players from Most Wanted. Should go well for them.
  • 1nFamy and Omen are looking to prove themselves and in the process keep their roster solid. Hopefully they can escape the 7th/8th place spots!

Overall the strong teams stayed strong or got stronger. The weaker teams made a few changes, but there is still likely to be a pretty big skill gap between top 4 (F3, VG, Elevate, Continuum) and the bottom 4 (MW, Fe, 1nFamy, Omen).
