[SMITE] Season 4 Spring Rosterpocalypse Watch

It’s that time of year: the air is crisp, the days are shorter, and your favorite SMITE rosters are dropping star players left and right.  It’s time for a good old fashioned Rosterpocalypse (read our coverage of the 2016 S3 Rosterpocalypse).

Previous instances of pro players either being kicked from teams or defecting to another side have resulted in the curious jumble that was Team Allegiance’s 2017 SMITE World Championship team, PainDeViande starting fresh with totally new players two times in a row, and when the 2015 World Champions COG Prime went to C9, failed to make it to the Grand Finals at SWC in 2016, and finally split up.

Will there be any breakups of that magnitude this time around?
