In our previous update, published in September, we revealed changes to our primary roster, with the majority of our squad moving to a development team, allowing the staff team of Alan Reid, Grant Hill & Anthony Busack to bring in new talent for Spring 2021.
As the United Kingdom enters a second lockdown, we’ve been evaluating the approach we wish to take when it comes to our League of Legends division, which is currently our primary esport title of focus. In previous seasons, we’ve adopted an intensive approach to player development, with “practice makes perfect” being a strong belief.
It seems that for this level, this may not be the best approach. With little reward for players competing in the 3rd tier below the Northern League of Legends Championship (NLC), many players are competing for fun, or are in the very early stages of their professional esports career. When considered in addition to COVID-19, a relaxed approach is best for players. Our aim is for our team members get enjoyment from their time competing more than ever before.

Our roster will still include players from last season, with some of our Season 3 line-up moving into a development team, to act as substitutes for Season 4. More info around this can be found in our previous update.
More information will be published as roster developments occur.
