Roster Changes

August 8th: LFO Roster Joins Giants Gaming

The org-less lineup of Looking For Org (previously known as LeStream Esports) has been acquired by the Spanish organisation of Giants Gaming.

Looking For Org currently sits second in the European region's Pro League and finished second at both the Vegas Minor and DreamHack Valencia 2019 showing themselves to be a major competitor at the upcoming Six Major. Going into this event they have now signed with Giants, best known for their Spanish roster which competed in the Spain Nationals with the core of the ex-gBots Pro League roster from Year 1 and 2. The organisation will retain both lineups as at there is no conflict of interest concerns of yet.

Their debut game under this brand will be on Monday as Giants Gaming faces Ninjas in Pyjamas in their opening game of the Raliegh Major.

August 5th: Jess leaves PENTA, SirBoss Benched, Janixs Joins as Trialist

After ten months with PENTA, head coach and analyst Jessica "Jess" Bolden has left the team, with Ferenc "SirBoss" Mérész also being moved to a substitute role. Janis "Janixs" Linins has joined the team in a trial role after having played through the EU Qualifiers for the Six Major Raleigh.

Jess has left the team after an apparent fallout with the team, as described in a 40-minute video released by her where she has alleged that there were figures in the PENTA roster working against her by attempting to create mistrust and prevent her from doing her job. According to her, after having joined the team as an analyst, her role had ballooned to that of the coach as well, but things had eventually soured.

SirBoss also mentioned on Twitter that this situation is one that didn't "go the way [he had] planned", seemingly hinting that he had been a victim of the fallout between the players that Jess had explained in her video. As such, he will now be continuing on with the team only as a substitute.

Both Jess and SirBoss had not been seen with the team for a while now, with the former having been on holiday around Europe. Moving onwards, Jess has announced that she will be headlining a new CCS project for which additional details are yet to be announced.

July 24th: Hyperino Joins Chaos as Analyst 

Hyperino has joined the Pro League team of Chaos just a few days after their seventh playday of the season in an analysis role. Here he'll assist the team's coach of Syred in the aim of improving their performance in the second half of the season as they currently sit in sixth place in the Pro League.
