Roster Changes

Feb 13th: mousesports acquires ENCE roster, oVie joins as coach

The ENCE eSports roster consisting of, Willkey, SlebbeN, Bounssi, Gomfi, and Sha77e has been acquired by German organisation mousesports. Joining the team in a coaching role will also be ex-PENTA Sports player and Trust Gaming coach, oVie.

With Willkey and Bounssi the oldest members on the team since Season 1, they had played under the name of GiFU eSports until their team's signing by ENCE eSports in the July of 2017.

Just a few days ago, it had been announced that their coach Sua had departed for G2 Esports, and fans of the roster will be happy to note that an immediate replacement was lined up and waiting in the form of a very experienced oVie who won the very first Pro League season with PENTA Sports.

The ENCE eSports roster had some troubles recently, being relegated in Season 7 right off the back of their Season 6 Pro League victory. However, since then they have shaken things up with their roster and made a triumphant comeback to the Pro League in Season 9 and find themselves in fifth place -- above G2 Esports, Mock-it Esports, and Team Secret.

The organisation of mousesports, on the other hand, was involved in the North American Pro League most recently, having had the now-Rise Nation roster play for them in Season 7 and 8. However, they had parted ways prior to Season 9 starting, putting the team's in-game skins and uniform participation in question. Now, with the signing of ENCE's roster, Rainbow Six regains another top-tier organisation.

Feb 6th: Sua Joins G2 Esports as Analyst, Ferral Leaves

Kevin "Sua" Stahnke has joined G2 Esports as their analyst just under a week prior to the Six Invitational 2019. The news was hardly kept under wraps, with Sua changing both his Twitter and Uplay usernames to G2_Sua (or a variant) a fair few days before, but it is finally official.

This would make G2 Esports have one coach, and two analysts -- Shas, Ferral, and now Sua -- and so it has been confirmed that Sua will be replacing Ferral directly. With Ferral having previously been on Team Secret when they were known as I Don't Know, and him having harboured ambitions of going pro as a player, it is entirely possible that he may be returning to his old team, but this time to replace Lacky.

Feb 5th: Team Secret Benches Lacky

Ryan "Lacky" Stapley has been benched from the British majority roster of Team Secret after a very disappointing first half to the Pro League Season for the roster. Lacky has played alongside meepeY since December 2016 in which time he has won DreamHack Valencia, finished third at the Six Major in Paris and, most recently, was crowned champions of the UK and Ireland last December.

He now steps down to the substitute position and is "looking to pursue opportunities elsewhere" after a disastrous few weeks which sees them end the half Season in eighth place in the Pro League with just three points. Team Secret's next game will be tomorrow in the ESL Premiership against Flylo where we may see the debut of his replacement on the starting roster.
