2016 saw multiple change in the NA organisation as they struggled to keep up with the meta and were not able to make any notable results in 2016. The performance from the team was below par and despite several ( three ) changes in their roster, the results did not improve.
The team will be led by Cr1t who will try his best to formulate a winning strategy for the team post the Boston Major.
After being presented with the decision of either pursuing a long-term career in esports or continuing on as an active pro player, one with an unforeseeable duration, he ultimately decided it best to transition into the business management role offered to him by Twitch. The details of this new position and what it means for the brand will be announced in the weeks ahead
