    For his part, Team Allegiance GM Connor Hall took to Twitter in his defense, saying he was told by the players that could only keep one player after worlds because no one on the team wanted to stay together.  Hall says chose El Town to represent Team Allegiance in the future.  He plans to make a longer statement about the situation.
  • In a professional move, Evil Geniuses posted a press release to announce the addition of former Team Allegiance player Suspector who is replacing Commonly on the team.
    “I’m super excited about having a fresh start in the next HCS season with EG. After receiving the offer I knew it wasn’t something I could pass up. There is no doubt in my mind that if we put the time and effort into next season we will be able to come out on top and make all of the EG fans proud.” -Suspector
