Burrito Esports: Burrito Esports joined the SPL as part of the Summer Relegations, beginning their run under their old name of Optimus Gang due to some shady sponsor shenanigans at the end of the Spring Split. The week of their first SPL game, Burrito Esports picked up the squad.
Eanix: Name changed from Valance Squadron prior to Spring Split Week 6. Xaliea and Cherryo left the team following Eanix’s losses in the Spring Gauntlet. Duck3y and Faeles joined the team as solo and jungler prior to the Summer Split.
Elevate: BlizzardFX joined the team as the new mid to start the season. In Spring Split Week 3 N0Numbers joined as solo and Nulisa joined as mid. They remained as roster members from Week 4 onward. Following the Spring Gauntlet, Faeles left the team and Nika joined as jungler for the Summer Split. As of week 2 in the Summer Split, Nika has been replaced as jungler by Cherryo.
Lion Guard Esports: Beginning the season as Team Dignitas, the roster was dropped prior to Spring Relegations and played under the name Novus Orsa – with some new members. Novus Orsa became Lion Guard Esports in Spring Split Week 2. Frostiak left the team before Spring Split Week 6, with Alexi (Rearward) joining the team as the jungler. Following its loss in the Spring Gauntlet, Duck3y and Alexi left the team, and the team name reverted to Novus Orsa – due to the organization not paying the team. R3bound and Axioz joined as solo and jungler for the team for Summer Relegations, but the team did not retain their SPL spot. Since that time, the team has disbanded.
Sanguine Esports: Prior to the Spring Split, TheDarkDodo moved to solo, Nika moved to ADC, MiketheMagikarp joined as jungler, MrSt3fan joined as mid, and Deathpanter joined as support. In Spring Split Week 5, Nika and MiketheMagiKarp role swapped. For the Spring Gauntlet, MrSt3fan left the team, Baas joined as ADC, Nika move to solo, Deathpanter moved to mid, and MiketheMagikarp moved back to jungle. MiketheMagikarp and Deathpanter left after Spring Gauntlet, with Alexi and Cherryo joining. Sanguine was relegated as in Summer Relegations. Alexi and Baas are the only remaining members of the team at this time.
Team Dignitas: Prior to Spring Relegations, the old Dignitas roster was dropped and the Open Bracket team “Variety’s New Team” was signed. The old roster went to play under the name Novus Orsa.
Team Rival: Name changed from Cyclone GG to Team Rival prior to Spring Split Week 6.
eUnited: Originally beginning Season 4 under the name Enemy, the name change took place prior to Spring Split Week 3. At the same time, the solo-laner Eruzies left the team, and Benji joined the team. After a disappointing showing at the Spring Gauntlet, Varizial left the team – only to rejoin prior to the Summer Split under his old name of Scream, with PainDeViande leaving the team, instead. PolarBearMike has joined the team as the new support, with PandaCat becoming team captain.
Flash Point: After a disappointing Spring Split – and turmoil within the organization – Incon, Aquarius, and XenoTronics left the team. Summer Relegations saw DanteLeFargo join as solo, Sheyka as mid, and sops as ADC. The team successfully defended their SPL spot for the Summer Split. After very underwhelming play through three sets, DanteLeFargo left Flashpoint half way through week 2 of the Summer Split, with Whalrus taking his place. Prior to week 3, ManRay took the place of Sheyka in mid.
Noble Esports: After jettisoning its Season 3 roster, the Season 4 team entered the Spring Split with a lot of hype. After failing to perform to these expectations, Uzzy and ElChapo left the team after the Spring Gauntlet. Aquarius and Copebby joined the team as the new solo and jungler for Summer Relegations, and helped the team successfully defend their SPL spot. Post-relegations, Copebby left the team, and Skeeledon joined in the role of jungler.
Spacestation Gaming: Spacestation Gaming began the season as Monkey Madness seeing some unexpected early Spring Split struggles, culminating in Week 3, when Benji left the team last minute and the team was unable to compete against eUnited – the team that Benji joined. Fineokay joined the team in Week 4 as the new solo laner, and the team saw renewed vigor for the rest of the split, before seeing some backsliding in the Spring Gauntlet finals and in the Spring Masters LAN. Prior to the Summer Split beginning in earnest, SoaR Gaming dropped sponsorship of their SPL team. The team was renamed Monkey Madness shortly thereafter. Prior to the start of week 4, it was announced Zapman joined Monkey Madness after talking only a single week off after leaving Team AI (Team Eager). This was incorrectly announced early. Before their week 4 game, Monkey Madness announced they had been picked up by Spacestation Gaming.
Team Allegiance: Season 4 began with ALG locking down their team for a one-year contract. While a great idea, the idea was quickly dashed as PolarBearMike left the team for “personal reasons” prior to the Spring Gauntlet. ViviaNx3 joined as the teams new support for the Gauntlet, but left before the Summer Split – Neirumah took his place.
Team AI: Despite ending the Spring Split as NA’s #1 seed, and advancing to the Spring Masters LAN semi-finals, Team AI – then playing as Team Eager – made changes going into the Summer Split. Divios , djpernicus, and JMarvalz – the team’s sub and coach – left the team following the Spring Masters LAN, but Divios returned prior to the Summer Split. Sam4Soccer2 has joined Team Eager as their jungler for the Summer Split. After week 2 of the Summer Split, Zapman stepped down as captain of Team Eager. Zapman will be taking a hiatus for the Summer Split. Aror was made the captain, though the organization will no longer be sponsoring the team. Before the start of week 3 games, Xenotronics joined as the hunter, and ElChapo joined as the jungler. Team Eager took up the name Team AI prior to week 3 of the Summer Split.
Trifecta Gaming: Joining the SPL through Open Brackets, Trifecta Gaming began life under the name In Memory of Gabe, and had an up and down Spring Split. They were briefly known as Carbon Six prior to the Spring Gauntlet, but left that organization when it was folded under Most Wanted – an organization the team did not want to play under. Following the Spring Gauntlet, Whalrus has left the team as solo laner. Meerkat – the Spring Split sub – was briefly the solo laner for the team, but now remains as a back-up, as the team picked up Kikisocheeky prior to the Summer Split starting in full. In Memory of Gabe was picked up by Trifecta prior to week 4 beginning.
