According to a tweet from the team's Twitter account, beastcoast has parted ways with Jayson "Jaay" Meszaros and Jason "Sippin" Mahabir.
The move leaves beastcoast with a solitary rostered player: Anthony "AnthonyMGS" Gomez. The team is apparently fully utilizing the "Off-Season Transfer Window", which allows for license-holders to effectively purge their rosters and completely rebuild once a year.
There are only three transfer windows per calendar year in the Rainbow Six Global Circuit: One following SI, one following the May Major, and one following the August Major.
According to the Global Rulebook, license-holding teams can make any changes they want during the Off-Season Transfer Window, provided two of their five players they field for the first stage of 2022 "competed, or qualified to compete, at the same level of competition the team was at during the previous Season".
Beastcoast will need to add at least one, if not two players who played in the NAL during the previous season, should they retain AnthonyMGS.
The transfer window will open on Feb. 21 at 9 AM CET. During the transfer window is the only time players can be officially signed and stamped as members of the team. However, according to the rulebook, "a License Holder may initiate a discussion and negotiation with another License Holder regarding an upcoming Transfer of Player outside of the Transfer Window, but the execution of such Transfer may only occur during a Transfer Window."
By the numbers, beastcoast was the second-worst team in the NAL during the 2022 season. They did not place higher than eighth in every single Stage, and finished last during a winless Stage 2.
