After Just a Few Months, Swole Patrol Disbands
Swole Patrol, a team that came together not too long ago, has announced that the group is disbanding. The news is somewhat shocking as they’ve done well on the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) scene. In August, they ranked 52nd in the world, and their current standing is 35th.
Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro, now a former member of Swole Patrol, tweeted that each member will make separate announcements regarding their future. However, he did cite the current CS:GO scene as a contributing factor. The group members also have different views and want to move in varying directions.

Natus Vincere Roster Rebuild
Natus Vincere have been struggling through a challenging season and are making changes, even if it takes time. The team has put three of its players and the coach on the bench.
Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov, Vladyslav “Crystallize” Krystanek, Nikita “young G” Bochko, and coach Andrey “Mag” Chipenko are all on the inactive Na’Vi roster fro the time being. The two remaining members, captain Alexander “Immersion” Hmelevskoy and Illias “Illias” Ganeev will continue representing the organization. However, there’s no guarantee they’ll make it to the new roster after recruitment.

Adio Chula Ends Spag and Sons Dominance
During five weeks of the Oceanic Esports Dota League Season 2, Spag and Sons have dominated. In the opening weeks, the team won most of their matches and drew a couple. The top results have them ranked at the top of the standings.
However, their total dominance has come to an end as Adio Chula, ranked third, beat them 2-0 in week six of the Oceanic Esports Dota League. The victory can be attributed to the latest roster recruit Buzzkin of C’s Better. The two teams traded players as GACHI replaced Buzzkin at C’s Better.
The addition of Buzzkin is proving to be an advantage to Adio Chula. Before they defeated Spag and Sons, they dominated Power of Friendship in back-to-back meetings. If they keep up with this performance, they could overtake Spag and Sons and end on the top.
