Another week means inevitable MDL changes, some more necessary than others.

First up, Royal, who were reduced to just two players following a rash of departures from their roster last week, have resolved to continue the season with coach Warren "hades" Rettich moving up to the position of starter, and the addition of Paul "n2g" Lao. n2g has attended several Southern California LANs with Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce, including yesterday's Frag for First at Esports Arena.

Royal currently have MDL matches scheduled against oNe and Peeker's Advantage next week, while captain Josh "JoshRT" Lee and his mix-squad will be playing later today in the Americas Minor qualifier.
