LFM Esports’ Support player Aaron "Aware" Ware is stepping down from the team to pursue other opportunities. In doing so, Aware will not be allowed to participate in the HGC for six months. Due to these circumstances, HGC administration has allowed LFM to sign an in-season replacement player.

LFM Esports will take on Simplicity to kick off part 2 of Phase 2 on Friday, August 24.
