Two new players—Will "RUSH" Wierzba and Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic— step into the eLevate squad following a major reshuffling of the team.
Just days after a new eLevate lineup was announced, the team suffered a major blow when ex-Nihilum player and teammate Andrew "Professor_Chaos" Heintz decided to retire from competitive play for the near future.
The first player to re-join the team was Will "RUSH" Wierzba, who just days earlier had been oficially signed to Tempo Storm, a move which necessitated a rather hasty rechanging of the player's Twitter banner and handle.

Space for a fifth player was found after the announcement of last night's player swap in Luminosity Gaming, when Swede Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg joined the squad in Canadian Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic's stead.
Since the team only fielded one empty space at the time, the player to be shown the door in exchange is former-SKDC playerSteven "rooRoooo" Herrell. Markovic will as a result pair up with old Liquid teammate Damian "daps" Steele in the new eLevate team.
As a result of these changes, billed by the eLevate organisation as "final," the team's lineup now appears as:
David "Xp3" Garrido
Damian "daps" Steele
Will "RUSH" Wierzba
Adam "aKis" Kisseberth
Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic
