The ESL Premiership is getting a midseason shakeup.
With the amount of news coming out this week there is no surprise changes are being made.
Starting off with the biggest news, MnM Gaming’s Rainbow 6 roster were acquired by Natus Vincere.
Navi.R6 will now compete in the Season 10 of the ESL Pro League in addition to the ESL Premiership. We now have two mainstream organisations within the UK prem – the other being Team Secret.
Meanwhile, Team Secret have made roster moves ready for the upcoming Allied Major in Vegas and Season 10 of Challenger League.
Ferral has joined Team Secret as a trial for these tournaments. Furthermore, Ferral will be Team Secret’s 3rd UK member for the Premiership. David “StiZze” de Castro announced his retirement on Monday as he heads back to academia, and Jack “Plebma” Bentley left the team’s substitute last week.

In other news, Epsilon Esports and Aquila Esports have left the Rainbow 6 Siege Premiership on their own accord.
ESL UK released a statement informing that there are two new teams entering the scene under the replacement ruling.
Demise and Horus Esports are the replacements for the Premiership, as they are the next highest seeds in the Promotion Series.
Demise has taken Aquila’s slot with 1 point, whilst Horus enters on 0 by taking Epsilon’s space.
Both teams played off stream on the 31st May, with Horus losing to Team Secret, and Demise losing to Na’Vi.
We win 7-4 against Horus in ESL Prem! GGWP. I recorded the match but I'll upload it after Vegas for obvious reasons. I got a fat 20 kills this game but we rehosted after round 2 because of my internet :<
