A trio of ESEA Advanced and MDL teams have made changes following the conclusion of Season 30.
Variance have parted ways with Rahmin "ShoukR" Shoukoohi while moving George "Powerzz" Yaede to a backup position. To fill the gap, Variance have recruited Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak, who spent the past season playing for Holo in Advanced. Having secured promotion to MDL through Relegation, the team now awaits the start of Season 31 on April 22nd.
Variance now have the following roster:
- Bilal "SPAMMER" Ali

- Justin "FaNg" Coakley
- Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak
- Huthaifa "blitzz" Khan (Coach)
- Keith "Seaside" LaFortune (Analyst)
- George "Powerzz" Yaede (Backup)
Following his departure from Variance, ShoukR has found a new home as a part of Las Vegas MiniGunners, linking up with Quintin "dolphy" Madsen to complete the team's roster. The duo replace Chris "Duck" Dutoit and Brandon "Proximal" Nguyen, the former of whom has already found a new home on The Alizarin Crimsons while the latter has posted a recruitment ad on ESEA.
Las Vegas MiniGunners now consists of:
- John "Magic1an" Girone

After falling in MDL Season 30 Relegation and being demoted to Advanced, recent MDL All-Star Nolan "Temperature" Pepper has parted ways with The Fundamentals after almost one year with the team. A turbulent time for the roster saw a number of player changes over the course of the year, leading to them lasting just a single season in MDL. Temperature tweeted that he is now searching for a team, and has posted an ESEA recruitment ad with the intention of joining a team in MDL.
