Walker "walker" Harris has announced his departure from Vireo.pro, reducing the team's ranks to just two players following the retirement of Derek "Hendy" Hendrixson and Armen "armen" Fesliyan.
Despite his departure from the team, walker has confirmed to Dust2.us that he is committed to play Relegation alongside his former teammates.

Lookin to AWP like usual, w/ hendy and armen both quitting I'm lookin for a new start elsewhere. I know I can be a super solid awper for a team, I've got a lot more confidence from the past 2 seasons in MDL and I'm ready to grind with a solid team.
The departure of walker from the team will be a heavy blow to Vireo.pro as outside of Hendy and armen, he was the team's highest rated player, putting up a respectable 1.07 rating over the course of 16 maps. Additionally, it raises questions about the team's future as walker previously told Dust2.us that he would take a leading position in rebuilding the team.
With walker leaving Vireo.pro, the team is reduced to just:
- Andrew "vein" Lindeman
- Eric "Ryze" Brown
Regardless if the team survive Relegation they will need to find three new players to rebuild their roster for Season 36, which is set to begin sometime next year.
