ATK had been on the lookout for a new fifth since the start of June when Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek was acquired by Envy. Following that move, the team had been using Tyson "TenZ" Ngo as a stand-in and were looking to sign him however TenZ's acquisition by Cloud9 nixed those plans. 

As previously reported, the team's coach Tiaan "T.c" Coertzen remains in South Africa at this time for medical reasons, although he hopes to be able to return to North America for ESL Pro League Season 9 Relegation.
