Wesley "viz" Harris has gone on an indefinite leave from Party Astronauts due to "an unforeseeable family circumstance." His temporary departure from the team comes as Party Astronauts are set to start their ESEA Premier Season 38 campaign and are in the process of preparing for Fragadelphia 15.

viz's leave of absence from competition is unfortunate as he has been on a strong run of form in recent months, boasting a 1.20 rating over nineteen maps in ESEA Premier Season 37 while having a number of strong performances over the course of the player break.
As the roster deadline has passed, Party Astronauts will need to use an emergency transfer to field a complete lineup while they await viz's return. Joseph "Muenster" Lima told Dust2.us that the team are still in the process of finding a stand-in and have not made a decision about who will fill viz's shoes.
With viz stepping down temporarily, Party Astronauts are now:
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Gage "Infinite" Green
- Joseph "Muenster" Lima (Coach)
Party Astronauts' first match in ESEA Premier Season 38 will be against Big Chillin on August 25th.
