Roster Changes

May 10th: Brycer Leaves XSET

XSET's coach of Bryce "Brycer" Hauver-Reeves has left XSET after almost a year on the roster after finishing his debut NA League season in last place.

Brycer previously worked with Organised Chaos and Disrupt Gaming in the NA Challenger League finishing fourth in both Seasons 9 and 10 before briefly joining the Spain Nationals roster of Wizards Esports Club. 

Brycer then returned to North America to coach PogChamp and then RentFree with the latter team eventually winning 2020's Challenger League and joining the NA League. In the three months since XSET found just a single win leading to this change.

May 5th: Butterzz Leaves XSET Lineup

After joining the XSET roster only three months ago, Alex "Butterzz" O'Campo has left the active roster and will continue as a content creator for the organisation.

Butterzz previously won promotion from the Challenger League after his team, 2Faced, beat Rogue (the NA lineup) in the relegation match-up. 2Faced later joined the Tempo Storm organisation and represented them during the USN19 Finals and Pro League Season 11 before Butterzz was replaced on the team by Mark ahead of the 2020 Season. 

Butterzz went on to play on the Challenger League team of The Last Dance through 2020 before joining the ex-Rent Free roster in the NA League with the XSET organisation in March 2021. They, however, failed to impress here finishing Stage 1 in the last place as Butterzz hit a 0.81 Rating on Zofia and Maestro. 

As XSET now looks to make a change to the roster ahead of Stage two, Butterzz will still remain with the XSET org as a content creator.

May 4th: Mark Leaves Disrupt Gaming

After joining Disrupt in March to replace njr, the ex-Reciprocity and Tempo Storm player of Mark "Mark" Arismendez has now left the team in a fairly surprising move.

Across his previous teams Mark previously competed at two Six Invitationals -- finishing joint third in both -- the Season 10 Finals and found victory at the DreamHack Montreal 2018 event on Cloud9 in what was NA's first international title in 19 months. 

Most recently he reunited with his old teammate of Retro on Disrupt at the same time as iconic to replace njr and Read. These changes in part allowed Disrupt to initially win the NSG X DarkZero Pro-Am tournament and then finish the NA League stage in fourth and just two points behind Mirage and Soniqs ahead of them.

Despite this jump in results from stage one, Disrupt has opted to make the change regardless which has surprised many players and fans with Retro stating the following on Twitter:

This was by no means an easy decision, and I know this is surprising to some with our top 4 finish, but in order to be the best we believed we needed to make a change. Regardless of the outcome I wish Mark nothing but the best and I know he’ll land on his feet.

Across stage one Mark finished with a 0.94 Rating on Zofia and Melusi and, likely most notably finished 13-17 on entries, a statistic Disrupt likely would want to be improved for their entry fragger.

April 25th: Cabal leaves LiViD Gaming

The Canadian player for LiViD of "Cabal" has announced he has left LiViD as the team sits down in sixth place in their group with one win in four games. Their substitute of Felix "Sovereign" Kass will replace him on the main roster for the remainder of the stage.

April 25th: Sonar and Euphoria Confirmed for Parabellum's SI Roster

Parabellum has confirmed that two ex-Altiora players which won the SI-qualifiers will compete on the roster at the 2021 Six Invitational.

Logan "Sonar" Parker and Brandon "Euphoria" Sathongnhot initially qualified for the Six Invitational alongside the current Parabellum players of Spiritz, Eskaa, and P3NGU1N and, despite not being in the initial Parabellum Challenger League roster, will play for the team at SI21 reuniting the full Altiora lineup.

As well as this, due to the sudden and unexpected ban of Luiz, Sonar will replace him in the Challenger League for the remainder of the stage.

April 24th: The Favelas Joins Kansas City Pioneers

The currently NACL Group B leaders and 2020 Season's fifth-place Challenger League team of The Favelas have been picked up by KC Pioneers in a major move for tier-two NA. 

The org also has teams in Halo and Madden and is probably best known for their prior Rocket League lineup currently ranked fifth in NA which was dropped two days prior to this pickup.

As well as this roster pickup, KCP has also since picked up the content creator of Skittlz indicating that they plan to remain in R6S for a long time.

April 22nd: Parabellum's Luiz Banned for Hacking & Suspended

After a number of suspicious clips of him were posted on Twitter Loïc "Luiz" Langlais has been banned in-game for hacking and so has been banned from competing professionally for one year.
