Unconfirmed rumours

China Invictus Gaming

It is possible that ChuaN is leaving iG for banana. It is unknown where Chuan will be heading to but it is highly possible that he will be going to Orange.

>> GoDz dropping hints at iG's new line-up


Malaysia Invasion-MUFC

Invasion-MUFC's performance at the tournament was overwhelmingly disappointing and it is no surprise WinteR stated that he will take a long break to think about what he wants to do in the future. MUFC's management has stated that the team will undergo some heavy roster changes after the players sort out the details. We are expecting Invasion-MUFC to only retain 1-2 players from their current squad, most possibly WinteR (assuming he continues) and TFG.

>> MUFC will undergo huge roster changes


Germany Mousesports

Black has departed to China to play for LGD.Int while FATA- is likely to join the new Flipside.Quantic team. The rest of thee squad is in limbo as to continue staying in Mousesports. Uebelst Gaming also disbanded and that may mean something for the German squad.

>> Uebelst disbands

"F D J U M" is the hint Fear gave of his new team before he deleted the tweet. Bdiz is most possibly leaving the team and he will be replaced by Universe and MSS.
