Roster Changes

May 10th: Atheris Signs Rovi, Loans him to GGE

The second-placed Mexican team of Atheris Esports has signed the 17-year-old of Rovi, presumably to join the squad when he turns 18 during Stage two. Until then he will be loaned out to GGE Team, a roster that beat Chivas 2-0 during the Mexican Super-Cup.

We welcome @Rovi_R6. He will be a development player on behalf of Atheris and for the moment he will be on loan at @GGETEAM_ to follow this development.

May 10th: pdr1n Leaves W7M Gaming

After his team finished last during Stage one of the BR6 League and was first rounded during the Brazil Cup, Pedro "pdr1n" Medina has left W7M Gaming.

pdr1n has been on this roster for over two years joining the W7M organization in May of 2020 after successfully winning the BR6 qualifiers. Since then they finished 2020 in seventh and sit in 10th during 2021 after pdr1n's long-time teammate of freezao was kicked from the team in February.

After 4 years of dedicating myself to a project, its base (pdr1n, Guii and Freezao) was undone and, with that, the way of working in the team became different, not that it is wrong, but we were not managing to perfectly align the ideas as a whole. I felt it was time for changes to continue growing and reaching the top, which is my dream and the reason why I have always dedicated myself to the game!

pdr1n himself also had a somewhat unsuccessful season in 2021 also finishing with a 0.92 Rating on Zofia and Kaid, however, this was still the third-best in his team as his teammate's ratings ranged from 1.02 to 0.8.

May 10th: Luk3 Leaves MeT

Following the exit of three players the week prior, the Mexican roster of MeT's coach of Luke "Luk3" Hiorns-Boddington has announced he has also left the team to join the third-placed GSA League roster of GoSkilla.

May 5th: Black Dragons Benches Hugzord

The ex-MIBR and oNe player of Vitor "hugzord" Hugo have been benched from Black Dragons after a seventh-place finish in the BR6 League and a semi-final exit to the Brazil Cup.

Hugzord previously played in every single Pro League season on teams such as NoX, oNe, BD and MIBR peaking with third during seasons seven and eight before returning to the Black Dragons organisation for the 2020 Season. 

BD ended this year down in eighth so opted to replace three players in March by picking up the ex-FaZe Clan core roster of yoona, ion and live. Nevertheless, even with these additions Stage one of the 2021 Season saw them down in seventh missing out on a spot in the Elite Six Cup.

This performance has led Hugzord to be dropped with his likely replacement being Pablo "resetz" Oliveira who stood in for the roster during the Brazil Cup and would have joined the team in March had he have been over 18.

Anyway I am aware of the hate, I am aware of the thoughts of the majority, I am aware of everything and obviously disappointed with the way some things happened, I always gave my blood for the jersey and most of the time I felt very close to the fans.

I trust in my work and in my potential, thanks for all the support and also for the criticism.

I was moved to the bench by decision of the organization, I really like the kids and will always be cheering and supporting them in any way I can for them to win, I will take some time off and focus on my work, this is all still my dream.

The "hate" reference came in part due to him playing over the very popular player of yoona during the Brazil Cup as many fans thought this was to be a permanent change. Yoona was initially unable to play due to being banned on Twitch.

As well as this, during stage one Hugzord finished with a 0.73 Rating, the second-lowest of all non-stand-in players in the league, leading him to be blamed for their lacklustre performance.

May 4th: DotD4sh, Dfult, and Lethal Leave MeT

Three members of the MeT roster of Mason "DotDash" Brasher, Marcus "Dfult", and Bradley "LethalGamage" have all left MeT after a mixed stage of the Mexican Championship.

DotDash initially moved to LATAM to compete for MeT ahead of Stage 2 of the 2020 Season and helped the team get their first two and only wins of the Season. After successfully fending of relegations, 2021 then saw two more non-Mexicans join the team in LethalGamage and Dfult which, alongside DotDash and wrath meant that Mexico esport Team had an American core.

Now, after finishing Stage one in third six points behind a playoff spot and being first-rounded by Fenix Academy in the Mexican Super-Cup, three of the newest members have decided to leave the team. DotDash will seemingly be retiring from R6 altogether, Lethal stated "I’ll see where that takes me" regarding his comp career and Dfult said, "might go LFT if I like the team. if not then guess ill see what happens".

With three players leaving this leaves just Ravz, Wrath, and their substitute of Hydre left on the roster. MeT will only be allowed to pick up two new players when the transfer window opens meaning Hydre will definitely be rejoining the roster after having to stand in for half of Stage one anyway.
