XSET to play in NAL relegations after last place finish in Stage 3

They'll have to fight to retain their spot in NAL 2022.

XSET to play in NAL relegations after last place finish in Stage 3

XSET will play the victor of the NA Challenger League in a battle to retain their NAL spot in December due to their last place finish in Stage 3.

XSET kept pace with the rest of the field for the most part, but a notable lack of regulation wins and head-to-head losses to other lower-ranked teams have locked the roster into the last place in NA. 

NAL relegation rules differ from the rest of the regions. NA relegation only takes the final stage of the year's results into account, the previous two's results aren't added into the mix. XSET finished last in Stage 1 and eighth in Stage 2. 

Over the transfer window, XSET added Nathan "nvK" Valenti and Christian "Prod" Gauch after parting ways with Tomas Kaka and Adam "Drip" Kolodkin. Before Stage 2, they added NA veteran Sam Jarvis as their head coach. Jarvis stood in as a player during Stage 2 after Drip and the team parted ways. 

However, the changes were not enough for XSET, who will have to defend their place at the NAL Finals.
