Hopefully one day we'll have a new picture of vek
With the start of Season 31 on the horizon, two organizations have signed new Advanced squads as they prepare for the coming season.
Starting off with Lowkey, after the dissolution of their original team following their elimination in the round of 16 of Advanced playoffs, they have returned to the league with the signing of Hot Ass.
Hot Ass also fell in the first round of Advanced playoffs, after which Stephen "Huston" Huston and Chris "CMX" Moe stepped down from the team. They partially replenished their roster with the addition of Damian "droid" Boulware, with former Lowkey member Lucas "Fiziq" Blow now joining as their fifth.
As such, Lowkey's new roster is:
- Alex "vek" Voynov
- Paytyn "Junior" Johnson
- Alex "Obs1dian" Conrad
- Damian "droid" Boulware
- Lucas "Fiziq" Blow
The second signing of the day involves Brazen, a small organization, who's former CS:GO team exited Main playoffs in the first round. After parting ways their former squad, they have signed the core of Orion, a squad that narrowly missed out on Advanced playoffs, finishing the season 9-7.

Finally, the team brings in two members from their former Main team in the form of "grape" and "mada".
Brazen's roster is:
- Troy "ara" Pollock
- Oliver "figment" Thompson
- Marcos "tacitus" Castilho
Both squads will be having their first matches in less than a month as Season 31 is slated to start on April 23rd.
