Today, Team Secret have announced the departures of Reece "ASTRO" Lambert, Joe "YZN" Pardoe, and Alex "SlebbeN" Nordlund.

The Finn joined from Soniqs in Mar. 2021 as he arrived to the team alongside Santino "Gomfi" Meulenaere. Meanwhile, ASTRO joined in Sep. 2022 and YZN in Mar. 2023.

Following Secret's Six Invitational 2023 appearance, the Europeans finished in fifth place in the Europe League 2023 Stage 1.

In the Last Chance Qualifiers, the Europeans defeated KOI in the quarter-finals. Eventually, Wolves Esports would knock out Team Secret from the bracket.

According to the section of the BLAST R6 rulebook for the 2023 season, "during a mid-Season Transfer Window, Teams with License can bring a maximum of two new Players and one Coach in each of their Rosters."

Considering that Team Secret is parting ways with three of its initial six members, this decision elevates Havey "Eupor" Hawkins to the initial lineup for Stage 2. The British joined Secret in Mar. 2023 as the roster's sixth player.

Team Secret have yet to announce who will be the two remaining players to join the squad heading to the Europe League 2023 Stage 2.

However, it's worth mentioning that Team Secret added the Spain Nationals S3 champion and former Heroic and Natus Vincere player Pedro "Thuunder" Muniz to their squad to compete at the VIVID League Season 6.
