A few months later Mity joined the initial Santos roster for the 2020 Season which finished the year in ninth place before he and three teammates were all dropped from the org earlier this month.

With the change of the structure from Gaming House to Gaming Office by @Furia we had to renegotiate the contract. As we did not reach an agreement, I asked to be released to look for new opportunities and they agreed to release me.
I am happy with how the cycle ended, it was a very incredible year in all aspects, for the first time in my career I competed in a relegation (to fall) and we managed to turn it around and get the classification for the World Championship (Invitational). It was an extremely difficult, exhausting, and fulfilling year at the same time. I sincerely thank you for allowing me to live this experience with you.

A year after joining the team, Lorenzo "Lagonis" Volpi has left the Black Dragons after an eighth-place finish during the 2020 BR6 Season.
Today I finish a 1 year cycle representing Black Dragons. I am immensely grateful to the organization for the opportunity and very grateful for the friendships I made here in the team and I am sure that these are friendships that I will take for life.
But tough decisions need to be made
and my decision was not to stay on Line.
I know that, for a team to achieve maximum performance from the members, it is necessary that everyone has a total synergy. As much as all the players on the team are great players, I was not able to achieve the harmony I was looking for. I ended up not finding myself on that line and that's why I'm going to look for new challenges.
January 11th: Xploidz Retires from Chivas
After finishing the 2020 Mexican Championship season in fourth place, "Xploidz" has left Chivas eSports and retired from competitive Rainbow Six.

January 6th: mav Suspended from Team Liquid Following Abuse Allegations
After joining Team Liquid as a coach from FaZe Clan last September, Rafael "mav" Loureiro Freitas has been suspended from the team following abuse allegations that came forward from two years ago.
The allegations made came from two ex-girlfriends which were supported by 14 screenshots of text messages and two voice logs (all in Portuguese). The first of which claimed he had been physically abusive to his ex-girlfriend with her claiming he had "hit her twice against a wall" leaving her purple with bruises:
He probably turned me purple
On the leg
Because he hit me twice on the wall
Then I screamed that he was hitting me
and the girls ran
On top of him
Mav responded to this by partially admitting the accusations in this since-deleted tweet:
This comes following a series of accusations of abuse in the Brazilian scene against a number of current and ex-players with the caster of Otávio "Retalha" Ceschi releasing a Twitlonger apology in response to one such accusation:
I was wrong to flirt with Lara at a time when I was dating and she was single. There is no justification for my mistake and no excuses.
Mav will remain suspended while Team Liquid investigates the allegations as the team prepares for their upcoming Six Invitational appearance.
