North American roster Sage have been forced into a roster change, with Anthony 'Notic3' Mangano stepping down from the team.
Sage eSports were most recently seen offline in August's Fragadelphia event, placing a respectable 4th place and losing out to the European mix-team EUROTRASH 2-0 in the third-place decider.
Since Fragadelphia, Sage eSports have been participating in the North American Blitzkrieg Premier League. The side started strong, winning their week one game comfortably but, since then, defeats to Vatic Esports and The Outliers have left them sitting just above their next opponent, Check-Six, in 4th spot.
In an attempt to replace the outgoing Mangano, team captain Kyle 'roflcakes' Hunter has recruited two "talented" players, namely Andrew 'Redrxk' Shepard and Hardil 'Barring' Dhaliwal. Hunter explained that the side "haven't had enough time to play with both players" but they're "[aiming to] build chemistry and see who will be a better fit as a starter going forward".
Sage eSports is now as follows:
Kyle 'roflcakes' Hunter
David 'lord_pnut' Patlut
Matt 'FoxRox' Peterson
Hardil 'Barring' Dhaliwal
Andrew 'Redrxk' Shepard
