Evil Geniuses making an appearance this week is interesting as the roster previously played this seaons under the NRG brand. As previously discussed, in seasons prior ECS licenses were non-transferrable meaning if a team switched organizations, they would not retain their spot in the league. With  ex-Luminosity and now Evil Geniuses being able to retain their spots, it appears that ECS have relaxed or removed this rule, though at this time they have not responded to multiple requests for comment from Dust2.us.

Also of interest is the appearance of "ex-Singularity", who Dust2.us have been informed are the same players that participated under the organization's banner last week. Due to Singularity no longer participating in the season, their newly-signed roster will not be eligible to compete.

This week will also mark the debut of Complexity and Riot Squad in Season 8, with the former being set to debut their new roster following the additions of Benjamin "blameF" Bremer and William "RUSH"  Wierzba.
