The North American team has not made any changes in their roster since the last season.
Last season had been relatively quiet for the team – they took 5-6th place at The Summit 6 and 4th in the offbeat favorite- Elimination Mode 2.0 but then made a much noise at the Boston Major where they took an impressive 3-4th place finish.
Earlier this season they participated in China Top 2016 coming in 3-4th place for the four team exclusive event but most recently the team took the championship title at ESL One Genting 2017 last month.
New Digital Chaos roster:
